Asthma drug 'protects sufferers from life-threatening sympto

Scientists are developing a drug that will protect asthma sufferers from life-threatening symptoms caused by the common cold.

A study shows an anti-viral agent known as SNG001 prevented two out of three asthmatics from getting worse after catching a cold, while those on ‘dummy’ treatment found it more difficult to breathe.

Researchers believe the drug could potentially help up to one in five patients with severe asthma who are most at risk of life-threatening complications from their condition.

Experts said the drug could be ‘one of the biggest breakthroughs in the last 20 years’ and could be used more widely to protect other patients with chronic lung disease.
