Inhaled steroids may not do the trick for every child with asthmaAccording to a study that was presented at the American Thoracic Society, there may be times when inhaled steroids recommended for an asthmatic child may not be as effective as thought.

It was also revealed by this study that this treatment result may be due to the fact that some children are less responsive to steroid treatment than others, a fact that was brought into notice by Gregory Sawicki, M.D. of Children’s Hospital in Boston.

It is believed that findings of this study will prove to be beneficial for members of the medical fraternity while prescribing inhaled steroids to young asthmatic patients and controlling asthma in their patients with little or no success.
