Abstract

Although three effective topical treatments for allergic rhinitis are available, little information to assist the clinician in choosing among them has been reported. Therefore, we conducted a randomized clinical trial to compare beclomethasone nasal solution, flunisolide, and cromolyn with placebo in 120 patients with hay fever during the ragweed season of 1984. We found that all three agents were superior to placebo (P less than 0.001) and that the glucocorticoids were more effective than cromolyn (P less than 0.001). Surprisingly, we also found that these intranasal treatments considerably reduced the symptoms of seasonal asthma. Further study of this therapeutic advantage is needed.

Asthma

This feed focuses in Asthma in which your airways narrow and swell. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

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.
