(UANews) Dr. Fernando Martinez and his colleagues have received a federal grant to lead a national clinical study with the aim of working toward a cure for asthma.
The thought of having to pull out an inhaler in the middle of school might stop some kids with asthma from breathing better, a new study suggests. An online survey of almost 700 students with asthma showed that nearly 50 percent reported poor asthma control. Childhood asthma can interfere with play, sports, school and sleep. Unmanaged asthma can cause dangerous asthma attacks, but inhalers that contain short- and long-acting medications can help keep those attacks from happening.
