PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To provide an update on the implementation of precision medicine, based on treatable traits and mechanisms, in the daily clinical management of chronic airways diseases.

RECENT FINDINGS: Recent insights into the complex and heterogeneous nature of chronic airway diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma identified several clinical and inflammatory phenotypes. This shifted the management focus of these diseases away from the prototypic disease labels and paved the way for developing novel targeted therapies.The concept of precision medicine aims to link the right patient to the right treatment, while minimizing the risk of adverse effects. Several treatable features ('treatable traits') have now been identified for these chronic airway diseases, including pulmonary, extra-pulmonary, and psychological/lifestyle/environmental traits. As the next step, innovative detection techniques should clarify underlying mechanisms and molecular pathways of these treatable traits and novel reliable point-of-care (composite) biomarkers to help predict responders to targeted therapies must be developed.

SUMMARY: Precision medicine links the right patient to the right treatment. Identification of treatable traits in asthma and COPD will help optimize the treatment approach in these heterogeneous diseases. Furthermore, in-depth identification of underlying molecular pathways and reliable biomarkers in chronic airways diseases to guide targeted treatment in individual patients is in progress.
