New drug for asthma


Hi there. Having asthma trouble? There's a new drug for treatment. Actually it's a procedure called Bronchial thermoplastry. This procedure is designed to reduce airway narrowing and significantly improve breathing in people with asthma, especially those that conventional treatments cannot controll.

Bronchial thermoplasty, involves delivering radio-frequency energy to the smooth muscle that lines the airway walls. The energy heats the tissue to about 149 degrees Fahrenheit. This reduces muscle mass, but doesn't destroy or scar the muscle. With less muscle, the airway can't narrow as much in response to irritants that often trigger asthma. Airway narrowing is a hallmark of asthma.
