Asthma patients get extended relief with inhaled steroidsAdults and children afflicted with asthma can exercise better control over the disease with inhaled corticosteroids than with cromolyn, according to a study conducted by James Guevara, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and colleagues.

The researchers made comparisons between inhaled corticosteroids and cromolyn to find the better between the two for providing relief to patients with asthma.

It was revealed by the study that adults and children with asthma and treated with inhaled steroids experienced three fewer severe asthma flare-ups each year on an average and made less use of asthma inhalers when compared to asthma patients treated with cromolyn.

Inhaled steroids superior to cromolyn for treating asthmaAdults and children suffering from asthma can exercise a better control over the complication when inhaled steroids are administered compared to cromolyn administration.

This finding was disclosed by a recent study conducted by James Guevara, M.D., of the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Medicine and colleagues that made comparisons between inhaled corticosteroids and cromolyn to find better of the two.

It was suggested by the study that asthmatic patients administered with steroids perform better on lung function tests besides making lesser use of inhalers than those on cromolyn.

Inhaled corticosteroids provide more benefits than cromolyn for asthma patientsA review of studies that were aimed at making comparisons between two asthma treatment options: inhaled corticosteroids and cromolyn has found that asthmatic patients, both adults and children, can exercise a better control and breathe deeper while being on corticosteroids.

James Guevara, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and colleagues found out that patients administered with corticosteroids make lesser use of life-saving “inhalers” than their counterparts on cromolyn and even scored better on lung function tests.

Guevara and colleagues noted that the benefits and superiority of inhaled corticosteroids are more than that of cromolyn, irrespective of the severity level of asthma. It was also noted that the results were so decisive that there is absolutely no further need to warrant any more studies to make similar comparisons.

Corticosteroids ease symptoms of asthmaAccording to a review of studies comparing inhaled corticosteroids and cromolyn, it was noted that adults and children suffering from asthma and using inhaled corticosteroids fared better than those using cromolyn.

James Guevara, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and colleagues, said that patients on steroids had on average three fewer severe asthma flare-ups each year, scored better on lung function tests, and make lesser use of inhalers than their counterparts on cromolyn.

William Storms, M.D., an allergist at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and director of the William Storms Allergy Clinic in Colorado Springs, said that the consensus still provides room for cromolyn treatment.

Inhaled steroid treatment better than cromolyn for asthma managementDuring a study in which comparisons were made between cromolyn and inhaled steroid treatment in context to treating asthma, it was found that inhaled steroids are better than cromolyn.

This study was conducted by James Guevara, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and colleagues and suggested that adults and children with asthma can exercise better control over asthma with inhaled corticosteroids than cromolyn.

The study pointed out that asthmatic patients on inhaled steroids (such as the brand names Pulmicort, Flovent, and Beclovent) had fewer severe asthma flare-ups on a yearly average basis when compared to patients on cromolyn (sold under the brand name Intal).

It was also suggested that patients on steroids scored considerably better on tests of lung function and made less use of asthma inhalers.

Inhaled corticosteroids can treat symptoms of asthmaAsthmatic children and adults can exercise a better control over asthma and breathe deeper, as per a new review of recently concluded studies comparing inhaled corticosteroids and the medicine cromolyn.

James Guevara, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and colleagues were of the view that patients suffering from asthma and treated with steroids enjoy an advantage of scoring higher in lung function tests. It was remarked that the use of inhaled corticosteroids help asthmatic patients to make lesser use of inhalers than patients who makes use of cromolyn.

Guevara and colleagues further remarked that inhaled corticosteroids are any day better than cromolyn irrespective of the severity level of asthma and said that the obtained results are so decisive that there is need to warrant any further studies on this matter.

Asthma Symptoms eased by inhaled corticosteroidsAccording to a new review of recent studies focused on comparing inhaled corticosteroids and cromolyn, the two asthma treatment options, inhaled corticosteroids are better than cromolyn.

It was suggested that adults and children with asthma can breathe deeper along with exercising a better control over their asthma. It was concluded during the study that patients on inhaled steroids fared better when it comes to lung function and using less of their “rescue” inhalers, according to James Guevara, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and colleagues.

It was concluded by Guevara and colleagues that inhaled corticosteroids were far better than cromolyn, irrespective of the severity of the asthma and it was suggested that the obtained results are so decisive that future studies to be focused on such a comparison again are not warranted.

Inhaled Steroids Advantageous over Cromolyn for Asthma TreatmentAs per a recent study conducted by James Guevara, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and colleagues, adults and children with asthma can have better control over asthma with inhaled corticosteroids than with cromolyn.

In this study, comparisons were made between the two treatments (inhaled corticosteroids and cromolyn) to find the better of the two.

It was found that adult asthma patients had three fewer severe asthma flare-ups each year on an average with inhaled steroids (such as the brand names Pulmicort, Flovent, and Beclovent) as against inhaled cromolyn, sold under the brand name Intal. These findings yielded the same results for children.

The study also found that asthma patients (adults and young children) taking steroids scored considerably higher on the tests of lung function besides making less use of asthma inhalers than those taking cromolyn.
