Cystic fibrosis patients can stop using inhaled corticosteroidsPatients suffering from cystic fibrosis (CF) and not making use of inhaled corticosteroids show no positive or negative effects in terms of major disease factors when compared to those regularly using corticosteroids.

Disease factors include the amount of lung function decline, number of prescribed antibiotics, onset time of acute chest exacerbation or frequency of using a bronchodilator.

It was concluded by Ian M. Balfour-Lynn, M.D., F.R.C.P., of the Department of Pediatric Respiratory Medicine at Royal Brompton Hospital in London, and six associates, that it is safe for patients to stop use of inhaled corticosteroids to reduce their drug burden for saving money as well as minimizing potential adverse side effects.

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.
