“Every day, our employees are committed to fulfilling our purpose: enabling precision medicine to improve life for people with allergies.”
Asthma is often associated with allergy and troublesome respiratory symptoms experienced by asthma sufferers are not just limited to their lungs.
An estimated three quarters of people with Asthma also have Allergic Rhinitis, which affects the upper airways and involves symptoms including a runny/ itchy/blocked nose, lots of sneezing and watery/itchy eyes, which can impair quality of life as well as work and school productivity. One in five people with hay fever can also get symptoms of asthma with wheezing and shortness of breath.
Allergic symptoms are triggered when the immune system reacts inappropriately to otherwise harmless foreign substances (allergens) such as pollen, house dust mite, mould or animal dander.
Importantly, allergies can often follow a chronic and progressive disease course and can require long-term management. Allergic Rhinitis symptoms may get progressively worse over time, especially when left untreated, and uncontrolled Allergic Rhinitis is associated with worse control of asthma.
