Abstract/OtherAbstract:
INTRODUCTION: Despite international consensus and clearly written guidelines urging wider use of corticosteroids or combinations of inhaled short- and long-acting β-agonists (SABA and LABA) and corticosteroids in persistent asthma, prescribing patterns and compliance rates fall far short of recommendations. OBJECTIVES: The failure to use steroids more aggressively is due, in part, to their side effects, even with inhaled forms of the drug. There is a role for expanded use of sodium cromolyn in asthma. Its potent anti-inflammatory effects, lack of side effects, and acceptable dosing and method of delivery, as well as its special role in exercise-induced asthma, make it a very suitable choice in the initial therapy for control of asthma. CONCLUSION: Compared to SABA and LABA, cromoglycates alone are unsuspicious of being used to enhance physical performance.
