New Developments in Allergic Asthma Treatment

Allergic asthma is the most common form of asthma and can occur when a patient’s airways are extra sensitive to certain allergens. Symptoms include coughing/wheezing, shortness of breath, quick breathing or chest tightness. Allergic asthma is most commonly treated with  antihistamines, inhaled steroids, and bronchodilators. Longer-lasting treatments are also available.

This education center aims to arm physicians with the latest, most important, and most practice-changing research in prevention, treatment, and management of allergic asthma.
