Pagination or Media Count:
Asthma is an inflammatory condition of the airways, producing variable bronchoconstriction. First line therapy is directed at controlling the inflammatory process with agents such as inhaled steroids, nedocromil, and the newer leukotriene inhibitor drugs. In severe cases, systemic steroids or other immunosuppressive therapies may be required for suppression of inflammation.
