Aridol News and Research RSS Feed - Aridol News and Research

Aridol is a lung function test and the world's first approved indirect challenge test for asthma. The Aridol lung function test, developed by Australian researchers and Pharmaxis, helps doctors more accurately determine the severity of a patient's airways inflammation - a hallmark of asthma - and allow prescription of the right amount of medication. The 15-25 minute test uses powdered mannitol, which the patient inhales in increasing doses. In asthmatic patients, this causes the airways to narrow and contract, which is detected by measuring the amount of air a person can exhale in one second. The smaller the dose required to cause contraction, the more severe the patient's asthma.
