The anti-IL-5 biologic reslizumab for the treatment of severe eosinophilic asthma is administered intravenously. In the current study home administration of intravenous reslizumab was evaluated in 24 patients included between 2019 (July) and 2020 (July). This is the first study to show that intravenous reslizumab can be administered safely and successfully in an outpatient setting. Notably, not all patients prefer home administration and severe asthma patients may have different needs when it comes to choosing treatment at home or in the hospital.
