    Die Zahl der zur Behandlung von Asthma und COPD verfügbaren Medikamente hat in den vergangenen Jahren stetig zugenommen. Gerade in den letzten zwei Jahren sind neue Wirkstoffe hinzugekommen und Medikamente mit Wirkstoffkombinationen zugelassen worden. Das erweiterte Arzneimittelspektrum verbessert die Therapieoptionen wesentlich, birgt aber auch die Gefahr von Verwechslungen, wenn ein Patient mehrere Medikamente anwenden muss. Vor diesem Hintergrund hat die Deutsche Atemwegsliga anlässlich des DGP-Kongresses 2015 ein Round Table-Gespräch mit Vertretern von BfARM, Hausärzten, Lungenfachärzten, der Industrie und von Patientenorganisationen einberufen. Im Rahmen des Round Tables sollte erörtert werden, ob und wie Markierungen oder Farbcodierungen auf den Inhalatoren dazu beitragen können, Adhärenz und Therapiesicherheit zu verbessern. Prof. Worth, Fürth und Prof. Criée, Bovenden, fassen die Ergebnisse des Gesprächs zusammen.

      Was ist neu bei der Therapie des Asthma bronchiale? Wissenschaftler entdecken immer mehr Facetten der chronischen Erkrankung #Asthma. Neben dem Asthma, das durch bronchialerweiternde und entzündungshemmende Medikamente gut zu kontrollieren ist, existieren so genannte Phänotypen (Erscheinungsbilder) der chronischen Erkrankung, die mit einer leitliniengerechten Therapie nur unzureichend beherrschbar sind. Die Entdeckung genetisch bedingter Phänotypen hat zu neuen spezifischen Behandlungskonzepten geführt, die über die Entzündungshemmung mit kortisonhaltigen Präparaten und den Einsatz bronchialerweiternder Medikamente hinausgehen. Prof. Marek Lommatzsch, Rostock und Prof. Andrea Koch, Bochum, berichten aktuell vom diesjährigen Kongress der Gesellschaft für Pneumologie und Beatmungsmedizin aus Berlin.

            Bei Alpha1-Antitrypsin-Mangel ähneln die Symptome häufig von Asthma oder COPD, daher wird diese Krankheit durchschnittlich erst nach bis zu 7 Jahren oder gar nicht erst entdeckt. Es handelt sich hierbei um eine chronische Autoimmunkrankheit, die das Lungengewebe irreparabel angreift. Bei schneller Entdeckung dieser Krankheit kann es gute Therapiechancen geben.

              More than 7 million children live with asthma in the United States. As a school nurse, Lizzie Cockrell has seen children struggle to control their asthma symptoms. One of her students, Judy, darkened the doorstep of the health room often. “Recess, PE, health—she was spending those times with me in the health room,” said Cockrell. Looking for answers and help, Cockrell remembered the Asthma Ready Program and used its tools and guidelines to coordinate among Judy’s family and her doctor to assess control of her asthma. Judy’s story is one that “encompasses many.” The Asthma Ready program works; it helps kids get healthy and stay that way. Lizzie Cockrell is an Asthma Ready-certified school nurse at Davidson Elementary School in Kansas City, Missouri.

              • Mold still a problem for NYCHA tenants a year after lawsuit

                This video is part of a larger investigation pursued jointly by the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and the NY Daily News. From the Dec. 14, 2014 story: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/exclusive-mold-growing-problem-nycha-tenants-article-1.2044723 EXCLUSIVE: Mold still a growing problem for hundreds of NYCHA tenants a year after promise of fixes A year ago, NYCHA signed a federal consent decree requiring it to repair mold conditions for residents with asthma. The Daily News looked at a half-dozen developments, chosen at random, and found hundreds of tenants still waiting for progress to be made. Ten-year-old James Ford, who suffers from asthma, has been in and out of the hospital this school year — missing nearly 30 days at Public School 138 in the Bronx. And instead of doing the things boys generally do on the weekends, the public housing resident is taking classes on Saturdays just to finish fifth grade on time. His parents say his asthma has grown worse with the spread of dark mold across the bathroom ceiling caused by a leaky pipe in the family’s three-bedroom apartment at the Castle Hill Houses. Human waste drips from the broken pipe above the toilet. The family keeps a neon-green bucket on the tank to catch the ooze. “They (NYCHA) are supposed to come back and fix it,” said James, who can’t play basketball, his favorite sport, because of his asthma. “All they do is come and paint over it. Next month, it’s all back.” James’ mother, Stacey Ford, 50, is at wit’s end. “I’m tired and my baby’s been missing school,” she said. “It’s a disgusting way to live.” The Bronx boy’s plight is not that unusual in city public housing, home to more than 400,000 people in 334 developments.

                    This is the entire story of my mother's diagnosis with emphysema and COPD, her various medications and treatments which provided only temporary improvements and her eventual complete recovery after more than 4 years of research into alternative treatments that were working for the treatment of other diseases. These alternative treatments were all based on the disease progression hypothesis I had developed for COPD which was, Smoking introduces a pathogen into the lungs which begins proliferating slowly and continues for decades even if the patient quits smoking." I saw first-hand what happens when COPD and emphysema are treated as if the disease progression is the result of a pathogen that entered the lungs from smoking. A diet that begins starving this pathogen borrowed from a successful cancer researcher started my mother on the road to complete recovery. The doctors had told me there was no way of reversing or curing COPD and emphysema. Once I started my mother on these alternative treatments I found her doctors had been wrong! Seventeen months after starting her on the restrictive diet she had completely recovered from COPD and emphysema! More than 7000 people in 25 different countries have now recovered from COPD and emphysema following these protocols!
