I have noticed the doctors depend more on the meds than on their judgements...when u question them about the meds being prescribed they make u feel like its the right thing to do but when I do my own research it' a totally different story.

Interesting. I wonder if adults receive any benefits from pretreating with inhaled steroids as far as preventing flare-ups-- or if they are like the children from this study and do not benefit? I sure with there were more non-steroid options that were efective and safe and less side effects. I know I am working hard with avoidance strategies and keeping indoor air quality in my home good.

I'm hoping that more research will help us see the role of steroids in treatment -- and maybe different ways of approaching treating asthma.

Thanks, AAFA! Research is the key. One day I know that asthma folks will have much better treatment options than we do now.

Dr. Philip Norman: An AAFA Tribute to an Allergy Legend

AAFA Community Services ·
If you’ve ever benefited from immunotherapy (allergy shots, SLIT or oral immunotherapy), you can thank Dr. Philip Sidney Norman. Dr. Norman put allergy research on the map. He is known as the “father of modern immunotherapy for allergic disease” and even coined the term “allergen immunotherapy.” As an allergist and researcher for more than 50 years, he published 237 research papers and more than 100 book chapters and reviews. And for many decades, he was an important part of AAFA.
