Leukotriene Inhibitors Can Help Control Asthma and Relieve Symptoms of Allergies
FDA > zafirlukast (Accolate), has been approved to relieve symptoms of allergic rhinitis. And to help prevent and treat the symptoms of asthma.
Asthma and Allergic Rhinitis
Asthma is a chronic lung disease. When asthma strikes, airways in the lungs become inflamed and constricted, causing coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing. Each year, nearly 500,000 Americans are hospitalized and more than 5,000 die from asthma. Children are more likely than adults to suffer from asthma.
Allergic rhinitis is an allergic response by your immune system to pollens, mold, and dust. It affects about 10% of the population. Symptoms include stuffy, runny, or itchy nose, and sneezing. Children are much more likely to develop allergies if their parents have allergies.
Asthma and allergic rhinitis are both allergic conditions. They can be triggered by many of the same allergens. And, in both conditions, leukotrienes contribute to the development of symptoms. Leukotrienes are hormones that are derived from arachidonate (arachidonic acid) and are produced by white blood cells. They cause inflammation, fluid retention, mucous secretion, and constriction in your lungs.
