New Medicine believed to be cure for respiratory tract ailments

Modern asthma medicine has immensely improved over the past 20 years, and this has allowed many asthmatics -- myself included -- a chance to live a normal life. Yet when it comes to allergies, not many advances have been made. This new medicine is supposed to cure both.

A relatively new, family owned pharmaceutical company called Pharmaco International, which is located in Muskegon, Michigan, has come up with a formula it says can be mixed with a propellant and inhaled to prevent inflammation caused by an abnormal response to common allergens and other asthma triggers. The medicine has two functions:

  1. It blocks the release of inflammatory markers that cause the asthma and allergy response

  2. It creates a steady release of the hormone cortisol which helps reduce inflammation

This new medicine will have a Generic name Allerguterol and the Brand name by Pharmaco will be Allergaway. Pharmaco scientists have been having trouble finding the right chemical composition for pill form, however as a spray, or as an inhaler, the medicine works.

Because it comes in inhaler form, it will have to be used prior to exposure to allergens or asthma triggers. So, chances are most asthmatics will have to use the medicine daily, and for many of us more than once per day. This may be burdensom, yet perhaps worthwhile if the medicine works out as expected.

The FDA has not yet been presented with papers for approval Other diseases the medicine is believed to cure are:

  • Arthritis

  • Eczema

  • Nasal allergies

  • Pneumonia

  • Acute Bronchitis

  • Bronchiolitis

  • Sinusitis

  • More
Of course it is April Fools, so I might just be pulling your leg!
