Study Assesses Asthma Treatment Options in African American Children and Adults

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

A new study of African Americans with poorly controlled asthma, found differences in patients’ responses to commonly used treatments. Contrary to what researchers had expected, almost half of young children in the study responded differently than older children and adults, and than white children in prior studies.

Newswise: Nanoparticles Wiggling Through Mucus May Predict Severe COPD

Nanoparticles Wiggling Through Mucus May Predict Severe COPD

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In a proof-of-concept experiment, researchers from Johns Hopkins Medicine say they have successfully used microscopic man-made particles to predict the severity of patients’ chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) by measuring how quickly the particles move through mucus samples. The technique, say the researchers, could eventually help doctors deliver more effective treatments sooner.
