Promoting innovations - World Asthma day on 5 May

04/05/2021

NHS England and NHS Improvement, through the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC), are supporting World Asthma Day on 5 May by raising awareness of two products to help Asthma patients.

The two products Asthma Biologics and FeNO Testing have been designated Rapid Uptake Products (RUPs). RUPs are products which support the NHS Long Term Plan’s key clinical priorities but have lower than expected uptake. The RUPs programme is designed to support stronger adoption and spread of these proven innovations. FeNO testing can improve patient care and outcomes by supporting more effective diagnosis of patients suspected of having asthma and Asthma Biologics are an innovative group of medicines which offer an alternative treatment for those with severe asthma.
