New Research on use of Chronic CorticosteroidNew findings have been revealed with regard to use of chronic corticosteroid at the annual meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) in Seattle.

According to Rebecca Green, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo., corticosteroids have been considered to be miracle drugs for many ailments when it comes to controlling symptoms where other medications failed to deliver any good results.

As per Dr. Kelly, Professor Emeritus Of Pediatrics, University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, Albuquerque, N.M., the use of inhaled corticosteroids has the potential for minimizing bone mineral growth in male children who are progressing through the stage of puberty, but the associated risk is more likely to be outweigh by an ability to minimize the quantity of oral corticosteroids used in these children.
