Erle's Asthma Information Center



Asthma Resources

I have had asthma since I was a child (over 35 yrs.) and I know how it can get to a person both physically and mentally. If you have asthma or know someone who has it here are some useful links to help.


Do not try to be a doctor and treat yourself. Take the information from these links and discuss it with your physician. He is a professional and he should make the final decision in your treatment. It is in your best interest that I say this.

   Accolate Info - New Medication

There are many people whose breathing is adversely affected by pets and cat allergen is among the most common pet allergies in North America. A recent Canadian study examined questionnaire responses from 2,999 randomly selected adults (ages 20-44) from Vancouver. The 34 percent who were currently pet owners had a higher prevalence of asthma, asthma-like symptoms and bronchitic symptoms than those without pets. In addition, cat owners had a significantly higher risk of having current asthma and asthma-like symptoms than those without pets. Furthermore, a subset of patients who underwent skin prick and other testing and were found to be allergic to cat dander had a greater risk of current asthma than those not allergic to cat dander.

"With the help of Accolate, people who have previously had trouble breathing because of allergic reactions to cat dander may be able to breathe easier when around cats," Spector said.
