Asthma: New Therapies for an Old Disease
Aretaeus of Cappadocia, a Greek physician, wrote the first medical description of asthma somewhere around 100 AD. Today, asthma afflicts one in 12 U.S. adults, and every year, it is responsible for approximately 439,000 hospitalizations and 3,500 deaths. However, a variety of effective asthma treatments have been developed over the years and we continue to explore new and better options.
Join us as Dr. Verma shares everything you need to know about the exciting new therapies that are providing relief for both children and adults suffering from asthma.
