Changes in blood gas tensions and functional residual capacity chronic asthmatics treated with disodium cromoglycate

British Medical Journal
D J Lane


Twenty chronic asthmatic subjects were treated with disodium cromoglycate in open trial. Although in the group as a whole spirometric findings improved, some patients showed a significant increase in arterial oxygen tension or a significant fall in functional residual capacity without any appreciable changes in spirometry. These changes may partly explain the clinical efficacy of this drug.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
