Researchers Possibly Find Root Cause of Asthma


Scientists in Wales have developed a highly effective asthma drug, and in the process may have discovered the root cause of the condition.

It was found that the protein "calcium sensing receptor" (CaSR) had a role in causing the disease as it is overactive in asthma patients.

This major breakthrough could lead to a treatment for asthma within five years. "We could be in a position to treat patients and potentially stop asthma from happening in the first place," says Professor Daniela Riccardi.

It is also caused by environmental allergies and/or stress. After I retired in 1999 my asthma went away. I had had it for 35 years. I was allergic to contents of telephone switching buildings, such as vinyl sheathing on cables, 100 years of dust in old telephone offices, etc.
