Effect of FPL57787 in exercise-induced asthma

Clinical Allergy
N C ThomsonJ W Kerr


In ten patients with extrinsic asthma the effects of a new oral chromone FPL57787 and placebo were studied in a random double-blind fashion to assess the effect of FPL57787 in preventing exercise-induced asthma (EIA). Exercise testing consisted of steady state running on an inclined treadmill for up to 8 min. FPL57787 gave significant protection (P less 0.01) compared to placebo from the maximum percentage fall in FEV1, FVC and MMEF after exercise. FPL57787 also produced a small but significant (P less than 0.01) percentage increase in FEV1 2 hr after the drug compared to placebo, whereas no significant increase was seen in FVC or in MMEF.

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.
