New kinds of asthma treatment

“Det er mange forskjellige versjoner av sykdommen astma. Og det er et behov for å utvikle nye typer medikamenter.

Ifølge Dr. C. Porsbjerg for Lungesykdommer Medicine avdeling på Bispebjerg Hospital har man tradisjonelt oppfattet astma som en enkelt sykdom som skal behandles på samme måte for alle rammede. Men i de senere årene har internasjonal astmaforskning malt et bilde av en sykdom som har mange forskjellige sykdomsmekanismer og symptomer.  Den nyeste forskningen er derfor rettet mot å beskrive de ulike undergruppene (fenotyper) av astma pasienter for å målrette behandlingen mer mot den enkelte pasients behov. Les: Hva er astma?

Kortikosteroider / binyrebarkhormon fungerer ikke for alle da luftveiene kramper. Behandlingen virker på de fleste pasienter, men det er også en betydelig gruppe som ikke har effekt: superintendent sier at ved ca. 30 prosent av astma pasienter virker ikke kortikosteroider. Hvorfor vet forskere ikke nokk om.

Nye behandlinger er på vei som kan være til nytte for de 30 prosent av pasientene der dagens behandling ikke fungerer – og det kan også ha færre bivirkninger.”

Og det liker vi, ikke sant? :)

“There are many different versions of the disease asthma. And there is a need to develop new types of drugs.

According to Dr. Pors Bjerg of Pulmonary Medicine Department at Bispebjerg Hospital have traditionally perceived asthma as a single disease to be treated the same for all affected. But in recent years, the international asthma research painted a picture of a disease that has many different mechanisms of disease and symptoms. The latest research is aimed at describing the various subgroups (phenotypes) of asthma patients to target therapy more towards the individual patient’s needs. Read: What is asthma?

Corticosteroids do not work for everyone when airway spasms. The treatment works for most patients, but there is also a significant group who do not have power: Superintendent says that by ca. 30 percent of asthma patients do not work corticosteroids. Why do scientists do not nokk about.

New treatments are on the way that may be of benefit to the 30 percent of patients whose current treatment is not working – and it may have fewer side effects. ”

And we like that, right? :)

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
