Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood, affecting more than 6 million children. Asthma is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that can cause repeated episodes of cough, wheezing and breathing difficulty. During an acute asthma episode, the airway lining in the lungs becomes inflamed and swollen. In addition, mucus.

National Trends in Morbidity and Mortality of Asthma in the US: Prevalence, hospitalization and death from asthma over two decades -- More than asthma susceptibility genes have been reported. Many are thought to involve the broad category of T-helper cells type 2 (TH2) and may play a role in inflammation. Examples include the FCER1B gene, which encodes the beta chain of the high-affinity IgE receptor; the genes encoding certain interleukins (IL) such as IL-4, IL, and the IL-4 receptor; genes responsible for innate.

    LTRAs are alternative, but not preferred, therapy for the treatment of mild persistent asthma (Step 2 care).

Asthma provides extensive references for researchers and clinicians who need to keep abreast of recent developments in this rapidly expanding field.

Quality asthma care involves not only initial diagnosis and treatment to achieve asthma control, but also long-term, regular follow-up care to maintain control. Asthma control focuses on two domains: (1) reducing impairment—the frequency and intensity of symptoms and functional limitations currently or recently experienced by aFile Size: KB.

These asthma drugs both help to control asthma and prevent asthma attacks. Asthma treatment is aimed at avoiding known allergens and respiratory irritants, and controlling symptoms and airway inflammation through medication. The main goals are to restore normal airway function and prevent severe acute attacks.

Medication for asthma is either delivered by inhalation, orally or parenterally (by injection).Asthma is a respiratory condition typified by recurrent episodic symptoms, which can include shortness of breath and wheezing, due to an airway obstruction that is reversible either spontaneously or with of MedicationBeta-2 agonistsAll beta-2 agonists (e.g.
