    A NEW injection to treat patients who don’t respond to conventional asthma medication has been approved on the NHS. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) has recommended ‘wonder drug’ dupilumab which has been proven to reduce the frequency of asthma attacks. 1Only patients with severe asthma and those who have had at least four asthma attacks in the last year will be eliglbleCredit: Getty - Contributor Patients are only eligible for the drug if they have severe asthma with type 2 inflammation (a defined pattern of immune response), who meet an inflammation threshold, have had at least four severe asthma attacks in the last year and are ineligible for other biological treatments. Charities have welcomed the recommendation of the drug and have said it would ‘transform’ the lives of some patients. People who suffer with asthma use medication called inhalers. There are two types, one is a reliever inhaler, which helps quell symptoms when they occur and the second is a preventer inhaler - which prevents symptoms happening. The new drug would be used alongside these inhalers...
    A woman has stunned TikTok with a video in which she claims that 'botanical sexism' is partially to blame for allergies getting worse each season. Ellie Botoman, 24, from New York, cited horticulturist Tom Ogren's research in her viral clip, which has been viewed more than 1.9 million times. The TikTok shows her taking a sip of her coffee in her apartment and then pausing, as if something had just occurred to her.   'When you realize that allergies/asthma across North America got worse [because] landscapers and city planners thought male trees were easier to maintain,' she captioned the video.  Scroll down for video   Blowing minds: Ellie Botoman, 24, from New York, has explained how 'botanical sexism' has contributed to allergy and asthma symptoms worsening in viral TikTok video  Say what? Botoman cited horticulturist Tom Ogren's research, explaining that allergies are increasing each year because of the surplus of male trees planted across North America 'And [because] they planted so many male trees, those species now release tons of pollen each year to compete for a few females,' she...
    More On: cdc Texas A&M researchers spot new coronavirus variant 8 different types of face masks and when to wear them: KN95, 3M, N95 COVID-19 deaths in US rise again during ‘complicated stage’ Trump takes jab at ‘lunacy’ of Johnson & Johnson vaccination pause Rochelle Walensky, the new director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has vowed that her agency’s information and guidelines will be “based on science” — essential to public trust in health authorities. Yet there is reason to believe the CDC has failed to deliver on Walensky’s promise in at least one instance. On March 29, the CDC updated its guidelines on underlying medical conditions that could increase patients’ risk of severe COVID-19 illness. In it, the agency classified moderate to severe asthma as a “high-risk” factor for severe illness or death from COVID. As an epidemiologist investigating the pandemic, I was curious to learn how the agency reached this revised conclusion. Last May, I wrote in a public-health journal that asthma appeared not to elevate risk for severe outcomes — indeed, it...
    SEVERE asthma patients are being turned away for potentially life saving coronavirus jabs.  Their condition makes them more vulnerable to the effects of Covid, therefore a priority to receive a vaccine. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates... 1Severe asthma patients are being turned away for potentially life saving coronavirus jabs.Credit: Alamy Those who take oral steroid medication or who have previously been admitted to hospital have been put into category six of the prioritisation list, meaning they should receive their jab by the mid-April. An NHS England letter sent to GPs in mid-February says people who have "ever had an emergency asthma admission" should be in group six, according to the BBC. But charity Asthma UK said there is widespread confusion, after some GPs appeared to say only those with recent hospital admission – rather than any history of admission – should be jabbed. It said a lot of people with asthma have been in touch with them reporting barriers to getting their Covid vaccine. Over the past year, confusion over which asthma patients can receive...
    PEOPLE with severe asthma will be prioritised for Covid vaccines after patients' calls for clarity. Asthma sufferers who have previously been admitted to hospital or need "continuous or repeated" steroid treatment will be next in line for the jab. 5People with severe asthma will be prioritised for the Covid vaccine, it's been confirmedCredit: Getty Images - Getty The most severe cases will come under priority group four - the "clinically extremely vulnerable" - and would have previously been advised to shield. Those that don't fall under the most severe cases will be included in group six - the clinically "at risk". This includes those who are usually eligible for a free flu jab. The Government said it's following independent experts' advice and aims to have everyone in the first four priority groups vaccinated by next week. ROLL OUT Age is the biggest risk factor for Covid deaths, so the nine priority groups are based on that as well as protecting frontline healthcare staff. It means that those in priority group six will be vaccinated after healthy over-65s, but before...

Then at the age of nine, Ella Ado-Kissy-Debra died of a severe asthma attack on February 15, 2013, in almost 30 years of continuous attacks and in more than 30 hospitals related to the disease. An initial investigation determined that he had died in 2014 from a severe respiratory illness caused by severe asthma.

    People with asthma should be sure to have up-to-date inhaler prescriptions during this time. Antonio Sanchez Albacete / EyeEm/Getty Images There's not enough data to know for sure if the majority of asthmatics who get COVID-19 have worse health outcomes, but we do know that COVID-19 is likely to worsen the lung inflammation that causes asthma. If someone has both COVID-19 and severe asthma, experts suspect that a ventilator may not be able to meet the needs of the lungs.  People with asthma should be diligent about using their controller medications, like daily corticosteroid inhalers, during the pandemic. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Asthma is a common respiratory condition that almost 25 million Americans struggle with. It causes narrowing and swelling of the airways, shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing.  Various external factors, or triggers, can cause asthma flare-ups, exacerbations, or asthma attacks, where symptoms worsen. For example, some common asthma triggers are tobacco smoke, dust mites, mold, and pets.  Additionally, viral infections are a trigger that can exacerbate one's asthma, says Megan Conroy, MD, a...

    People who are cursing their hay fever right now may want to think again. A growing body of evidence suggests that everyday allergies could actually offer some protection against Covid-19. Given that the virus affects the lungs, you might think those with allergy and asthma would be among the worst affected.  Indeed, researchers and doctors sifting through the statistics expected the same thing. The numbers of allergy and asthma patients who were severely affected by Covid-19 were lower than in the general population [File photo] ‘But when data started emerging about cases in the U.S. and China, we weren’t seeing what we expected,’ says Dr Samantha Walker, a specialist in allergy and immunology who is director of research and innovation at the Asthma UK and British Lung Foundation Partnership. In fact, the numbers of allergy and asthma patients who were severely affected by Covid-19 were lower than in the general population. ‘It led us to ask if something about the treatment used by people with these conditions is affecting their response to the virus,’ says Dr Walker. ‘Or does...
