Default Asthma & IL-4

Do we use anti-IL4 monoclonal antibody for the treatment of asthma? It makes sense because IL-4 causes class switching to IgE which is directly involved in the pathogenesis of asthma. But if someone can please explain in what situation/kind of asthma do we use anti-IL4 monoclonal antibody? What's its name? And if it is high yield wrt step 1.
