Also helping asthma patients overcome their illness are scientists at America's pharmaceutical research companies. According to a recent survey, 77 potential new medicines are in development for lung and respiratory disorders, including asthma.

Also featured on the episode is GlaxoSmithKline scientist and asthma expert Dr. Courtney Crim who says, "Although a cure for asthma may not be immediately around the corner, we hope that current and future research may give us more insight into the disease and more insight how to better treat it."
