Trial of disodium cromoglycate in bronchial asthma

British Medical Journal
D G RobertsonD A Warrell


In a double-blind cross-over trial of disodium cromoglycate on 11 patients nine were symptomatically improved, and in all of these daily measurements of peak expiratory flow increased. The forced expiratory volume in the first second and specific airway conductance did not increase in all patients. In most cases the average values for residual volume and functional residual capacity fell; exercise capacity and ventilation did not change, but the pulse rate on exercise was lower. It is suggested that the changes produced by disodium cromoglycate are worth while.

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.


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.
