Conclusions: Salbutamol significantly reduced the insulin mediated airway hyper-reactivity in guinea pigs suggesting that pre-treatment of inhaled insulin with salbutamol may have clinical implication in the amelioration of its potential respiratory adverse effects such as bronchoconstriction.
It is found that extremely high or low body weight leads to bad lung function and bronchoconstriction.
DuoResp Spiromax is a multi-dose dry-powder inhaler with fixed dose combination of budesonide, an inhaled corticosteroid to treat the underlying inflammation in asthma and COPD, and formoterol fumarate dihydrate, a rapid-acting and long-lasting beta2 agonist for the relief of bronchoconstriction in asthma and COPD, said the company.
