Synexus Launching Worldwide Awareness Campaign Into Asthma R

Postby talkhealth on Wed Apr 11, 2012 1:29 pm

Synexus, the world's largest multinational company dedicated to the successful recruitment and running of clinical studies, is launching a worldwide awareness campaign into asthma research. The campaign is being launched in the run up to a worldwide asthma research study which has been mandated by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) which Synexus will be taking part in later in 2012.

Asthma is a long-term condition that can cause a cough, wheezing and breathlessness due to inflammation of the airways. The severity of the symptoms varies from person to person with the condition affecting both adults and children. The World Health Organisation estimates that there are over 300 million asthma suffers worldwide, and worldwide deaths from asthma have been estimated at over 250,000 patients per year[1].

In the UK, 5.4 million people are currently receiving treatment for asthma and this figure is on the increase.
That is 1 in every 12 adults and 1 in every 11 children[2]. The NHS spends around £1 billion a year treating and caring for people with asthma[3] however an estimated 75% of hospital admissions for asthma are avoidable and as many as 90% of the deaths from asthma are preventable[4].
