Living every breath

Air is one of the most precious things we have. We can't see it, feel it or touch it. Yet, as soon as we don't have enough of it, we realize we can't live without it.

Chiesi Air

A new name but the same commitment

Chiesi knows how precious air is and has made helping the world breathe better its mission for the past 40 years. We have developed innovative treatments for asthma, COPD and cystic fibrosis, and introduced a class-leading surfactant and catheter for premature babies.

Chiesi is now launching Air, a new name for its family of products to treat respiratory conditions.

Welcome to the Chiesi world

Chiesi operates around 3 key focal pillars - Air, Rare and Care - each of which covers a distinct area of specialism for the company. Air is our range of products and services to aid respiration, from newborns to adults. Rare focuses on the treatment of patients with rare and ultra rare diseases. Care combines our special care and consumer healthcare expertise.


The StrawTest is a DIY awareness initiative that invites everybody to put themselves in the shoes of respiratory patients. The experience will help testers get closer to answering a key question: have you ever tried what struggling for breath means?

Take the Test to have a glimpse of what a lot of people feel every day in their lives. Take a sheet of paper and roll it up to form a thin straw. Pinch your nose with your fingers and breathe into the straw for 60 seconds. Publish a photo or video, commenting on how it felt and tagging 3 friends.

Please stop anytime, if it becomes too uncomfortable!
