Asthma/bronchial asthma:
How Inhalers
Work
The throat usually produces a lot of mucus when the immune system thinks it is being threatened. With asthma the immune system overeacts and it builds a lot of mucus in your throat to stop it However this makes it hard for air to pass though. If you use your inhaler during this it will ease the swelling making it easier to breathe.
Current Research
Most research on asthma is actually not to find a cure but to see how it affects the patients' lives and their familys' lives.
What chromosones
are mutated to get asthma
Chromosomes 5,6,11,12,14 have been known to be connected to asthma.
How do Doctors know?
If you experience those symptoms often- especially during night, winter, exposure to allergens, and/or exercise- then you more than likely have asthma.
ORMDL3
It controls the synthesis of sphingolipids but when overactive it doesn't make enough. Researchers are still not sure why a decreased sphingolipids rate causes Asthma but there is a connection.

(Asthma is a autosomal dominant trait)
Becomes overactive when mutated.
Asthma costs the country more than $50 billion every year in health care costs.
Did You Know?
As children males have more of a chance developing asthma then females but it is reversed as adults
Even if you are not born with it you can develop a bad case of it if exposed to allergens or polluted air
