    Did that trigger your asthma at that point?
    A little bit, yeah.
    Sara's been a patient of mine for many years
    and we've been trying for a number of years now
    to control her severe asthma.
    And often patients complain to me they can't breathe,
    they often feel like they're producing mucus
    and they can't just clear that
    and yet they're taking a lot of different medications.
    The studies that just came out
    in the New England Journal of Medicine
    relate to a new drug
    that has never really been studied before
    in a large population of patients with asthma.
    This drug is called Dupilumab
    and Dupilumab has a very unique action
    in that it blocks two different what we call cytokines,
    which are chemicals that are active
    in patients with severe asthma.
    So in the Quest study, we found that
    in patients that were treated with Dupilumab,
    there is a about a 50% reduction in asthma attacks.
    Some of these patients come back to me
    after starting the medication and say
    "Wow, Dr. Castro my life has changed so much!"
    "You know, I'm able to do things like I never had before."
    "I'm able to go outside and actually exercise."
    And so, you know, this has really been a life changing
    treatment for some of my patients with asthma.
    They sound nice and clear.
    Good. That's what I like to hear.
