Infectious Asthma Research
Asthma is believed to be incurable but a growing body of evidence suggests that the most severe forms are caused by infections that are curable by specific courses of antibiotics. In cooperation with David L. Hahn, M.D., MS, a Dean Medical Center physician, Dean Foundation has supported research into novel infectious causes for asthma. This research first raised the possibility that short-term treatments with certain antibiotics may significantly improve or even cure some cases of asthma and may improve asthma symptoms and quality of life without the costs and side effects of life-long steroid treatments that are the backbone of current asthma guidelines.
