Black teens more resistant to steroidsBlack teens suffering from asthma are more resistant to steroid treatment than their white counterparts, as per a research conducted at the National Jewish Medical and Research Center. It was suggested by the study that inhaled steroids may prove to be one of the best ways for asthma control management in an effective manner.

Joseph Spahn, M.D., a pediatric allergist and director of the Immunopharmacology Lab at National Jewish, remarked that African-American children are more prone to be resistant to asthma steroid therapy than white children.

This study was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

It is believed that future studies are in the pipeline for determining if the black teens also have a more vigorous immune response to airway inflammation.

Steroid treatment may be resisted by black asthmatic children Joseph Spahn, M.D., a pediatric allergist and director of the Immunopharmacology Lab at National Jewish, has remarked that black asthmatic teens are more resistant to steroid treatment for curing asthma than the white teens. The study was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

It is important to note here that many recent epidemiological studies have suggested that the black teens run a higher risk of being sick and suffer from a greater mortality rate than the white teens.

It was remarked by the involved researchers that further studies are required to ascertain if the black teens also run a higher risk of a more vigorous immune response to airway inflammation or not.

Difference in level of asthma steroid treatment responseAs per the results of a research conducted at the National Jewish Medical and Research Center, the bodies of black asthmatic children are more likely to turn down the benefits of steroid treatment as per Joseph Spahn, M.D., a pediatric allergist and director of the Immunopharmacology Lab at National Jewish.

It was highlighted that black children are more resistant to asthma steroid therapy than their white counterparts.

The results of this study were published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. It is expected that more studies would soon be in the pipeline to ascertain if the black teens are also prone to have a more vigorous immune response to airway inflammation or not.

Black asthmatic teens more likely to be resistant to steroids than their white counterpartsAccording to a research conducted at the National Jewish Medical and Research Center, black teenagers with asthma are three times more resistant to steroids than their white counterparts.

Joseph Spahn, M.D., a pediatric allergist and director of the Immunopharmacology Lab at National Jewish, said that studies have revealed that African-American children are more prone to be resistant to asthma steroid therapy than white children.

The study suggested that inhaled steroids can be one of the best and most effective ways when it comes to controlling asthma in an effective manner.

Further studies are under pipeline to determine whether or not black teens even have a more vigorous immune response to airway inflammation.

The study was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

Black Teens with Asthma more likely to be Steroid Resistant than White TeensAs per a research conducted at the National Jewish Medical and Research Center, black teenagers are three times more likely than their white counterparts to have steroid-resistant asthma.

Joseph Spahn, M.D., a pediatric allergist and director of the Immunopharmacology Lab at National Jewish, remarked that research revealed that the African-American Children were more likely to be resistant to steroid therapy for treating asthma than their white counterparts.

As per other recent epidemiological studies, black teens with asthma are found to be sicker and have a higher mortality rate than white teens with asthma.

The study suggested that inhaled steroids can be one of the best and most effective ways to control asthma.

Further Studies are being conducted to determine whether or not the black teens have a more vigorous immune response to airway inflammation.

It is estimated that only 1/10th of a percent of the 15 million asthma patients in the United States are resistant to steroids while there are approximately 5 million children fighting against asthma in the United States.

The study was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. It is the first one to examine steroid-resistant asthma in children.

Cells mediating steroid-resistance Asthma identifiedChildren’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC researchers have claimed to identify cells that are likely to play an important role in some forms of steroid-resistant asthma, which is a complication that has the effect of making treatment more challenging.

Jay K. Kolls, MD, chief of the Division of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine, Allergy and Immunology at Children’s Hospital and study’s senior author, remarked that the identification of T Helper Type 17 (Th17), a lineage of cells, can help scientists to develop new forms of treatment to control asthma in an effective manner. These findings are likely to benefit more than 11 million of Americans who have been diagnosed with steroid-resistant asthma.

The findings have been seen as positive steps in finding a potential new target for development of drugs that can finally lead to effective asthma control and management. It is believed that these latest findings have the potential to change the methods of treating steroid-resistant asthma in a better way.
