Researchers Hopeful About Non-Steroidal Asthma Treatment

asthma treatmentResearchers at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia are hopeful that a promising new treatment could offer a non steroidal anti inflammatory therapy for asthmatics, which could be a major breakthrough.

The new therapy made from human protein, was seen to significantly decrease disease signs in mice, making it possible for new treatments to emerge for those people who do not respond to or cannot benefit from currently available steroidal treatment.

The study conducted on mice used a protein; an insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 that was seen to uniquely inhibit certain precise physiological symptoms of asthma. The study could have significant implications not just for asthma but also other inflammatory diseases.
