Combo inhaler effective for simplifying asthma treatment  A new treatment option may help people with chronic asthma to manage their condition with a single prescribed inhaler that contains two medicines, as per a review.

Lead reviewer Christopher Cates, M.D., at the Community Health Sciences of St. George’s at the University of London, said that most asthma patients default on inhaled corticosteroids as inhaled steroids do not bring immediate difference to asthma symptoms.

Carlos Camargo, M.D., an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, specializes in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, remarked that this single-inhaler therapy is an interesting approach to treat chronic asthma.
