Patient Q&A Section

Can asthma be cured?

"Asthma must be classified according to severity of symptom and the extent of lung function impairment at the time of diagnosis. In the majority of patients, this will determine treatment duration and will determine the degree of treatment failure. In the majority of patients, treatment failure may be a result of the severity of symptom at presentation. Treatment failure in these patients may be improved by switching to a long-acting beta-agonist/intranasal steroid protocol. Further research is needed to determine the true potential and effectiveness of allergen immunotherapy in improving lung function to enable successful treatment of asthma." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are common treatments for asthma?

"Inhalers, anti-inflammatory medication, mast inhalers, decongestants, and other medications are the primary options for asthma management. No cure exists for asthma. Common treatments include combinations of medications, inhalers, and other options, as well as other medications. These include the oral/inhaled corticosteroids, the oral and/or inhaled leukotriene modifiers, and the oral and inhaled beta-AR antagonists and leukotriene receptor antagonists. The newer non steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, aspirin and other anti-platelet medications, are also used." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What causes asthma?

"The cause of asthma remains unknown. The exact cause of asthma still remains a mystery. But there are many environmental factors that can increase the risk of developing asthma. Asthma is also related to the occurrence of allergic reactions to inhalers or medications, as well as viral infections. Although there are many proposed causes pertaining to asthma, the exact cause to why asthma occurs still remains unclear. There is no one theory that explains the cause of asthma, but the following theories are the leading causes of asthma: genetics, environmental, and psychological." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is asthma?

"The asthma definition has evolved as new data from health surveys and clinical trials indicate that asthma is a very common condition in the USA. In 1999 it caused more physician visits, health expenditures, and hospitalizations than any other type of chronic disease. It is estimated that asthma affects more persons than diabetes. Asthma is primarily a disease in which the airways of the lung become inflamed (inflammation is a normal host defense response to unwanted substances such as bacteria, viruses or chemicals). Some, but by no means all, of the triggers of asthma are environmental, such as air pollutants and allergens, such as pollen, mold spores and household pets and insects." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the signs of asthma?

"Asthma is mainly diagnosed on the basis of a history of wheezing and exercise-induced bronchoconstriction. The use of specific testing such as methacholine-challenge and skin-prick tests may be helpful to confirm a diagnosis; however, neither asthma history nor test results will give a negative result on their own. Children with acute asthma of unknown origin should have a full history and physical evaluation. It is important to exclude any underlying disease of the lungs before making the diagnosis of asthma; the exclusion of asthma also helps to reduce unnecessary bronchoscopies, unnecessary admission and steroids." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How many people get asthma a year in the United States?

"The number of people with asthma has increased by nearly 15% since 1979. Estimates of new diagnoses of asthma have been based on case-finding systems and/or surveys, which rely on the collaboration of persons with asthma. It is possible that many people with asthma have undiagnosed asthma and are not included in such case-finding systems." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Is asthmaxcel ed application safe for people?

"Asthmaxcel ed was well tolerated in the short term, with no clinically significant adverse events reported, and it was also well tolerated in the long term with no significant safety concerns identified. Asthmaxcel has been approved for use in Europe, Japan, China, and South Korea. Additional clinical trials of prolonged duration are warranted." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What does asthmaxcel ed application usually treat?

"The treatment of mild asthma using the astmaxcel electronic monitor was well tolerated with symptomatic improvement. The adherence with the treatment was suboptimal. The quality of the clinical and e-healthcare documentation was moderate. There was a substantial reduction in the use of conventional steroid inhalers and oral corticosteroids." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving asthmaxcel ed application?

"Asthmaxcel is a novel asthma therapy that is manufactured for use in the outpatient management of patients with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Additional randomized controlled trials are required. Inhalation of Asthmaxcell seems to be safe in patients suffering from asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. However, further trials with a long-term follow-up are warranted." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Does asthma run in families?

"Asthma is a genetic disorder. An increase in asthma rate in a population is associated with an increased density of persons with asthma within the same family members. These observations support the genetic basis of asthma susceptibility." - Anonymous Online Contributor
