Identification of new treatment form for asthmaA potential form of treatment has been identified by researchers as per a small study in Thorax. The treatment method is related to the use of a powerful immune system chemical for providing relief to patients afflicted with severe asthma; this chemical is present in large quantities in patients with asthma.

It is important to note that the severe form of asthma is rare and afflicts 1 in every 10 asthmatic individuals and high doses of steroids in a progressive manner are required for controlling the disease symptoms.

The chemical, Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha), was examined by the research team. TNF alpha is found in many chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and psoriasis.

New treatment option for curing severe asthmaAccording to a small study in Thorax, blocking a powerful immune system chemical that is present in large quantities in patients with the severe form of the disease can help in curing severe asthma.

It is believed that around one in ten asthmatics suffers from this severe form of asthma that usually requires progressively higher doses of steroids for controlling the disease symptoms.

The authors noted that this form of treatment can be seen as a potentially new avenue of treatment for severe asthma though further research will be required before this approach can be recommended.

Etanercept lets kids feel good in their skinResearchers at the Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine have reported that the drug etanercept, which has already been approved by the FDA for adults but not tested in children suffering with psoriasis, is safe and very effective for minimizing psoriasis flare-ups in pediatric patients.

According to Amy Paller, M.D., a professor of dermatology and of pediatrics, and the chair of dermatology at the Feinberg School, this drug has been pivotal in changing life of kids for the better.

It is considered that etanercept can prove its real worth to redefine social image and outer presence of people who have long been suffering from psoriasis, which is a disease that results in abnormal growth of skin cells at an accelerated rate.
