- Severe asthma is often defined as asthma requiring a high level of treatment to prevent it from becoming or remaining uncontrolled.
- Poor control of severe asthma is associated with frequent exacerbation, high medical costs, and mortality

Korean Severe Asthma Registry (KoSAR)
- The Korean Working Group on Severe Asthma was established in 2009 by the members of the Korean Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Clinical Immunology (KAAACI), to study and understand severe asthma in order to find better strategy for severe asthma.
- The Korean Working Group on Severe Asthma is running the Korean Severe Asthma Registry (KoSAR) with collection of clinical data of patients with severe asthma.
- To define clinical characteristics and phenotypes of severe asthma in Korea in multicenter, prospective observational study design
- To estimate the burden of severe asthma and estimate treatment status of severe asthma in Korea
