Teva Respiratory to Host 'Phillies Asthma Awareness Night' Featuring Free Asthma and Exercise-Induced Bronchospasm Screenings
Date:4/29/2010

PHILADELPHIA, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- In the United States alone, over 22 million people, including more than six million children, are known to have asthma, which is a leading cause of hospital emergency department visits and school absenteeism. Experiencing respiratory symptoms isn't just for people who have asthma – some people get short of breath, wheeze or feel tightness in their chest when they exercise. These symptoms are part of a phenomenon known as exercise-induced bronchospasm, or EIB which is commonly experienced, but not well-known. One out of ten people has EIB, including 90% of asthmatics. However, the vast majority of people who have these symptoms (over 65%) are not diagnosed.

Asthma continues to be a chronic issue in the city of Philadelphia. Over the last 5 years, Philadelphia has consistently been ranked in the top 20 of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) Asthma Capitals annual ranking of US cities, and most recently was ranked 8th. In an effort to raise public awareness of the risks faced everyday by those living with asthma, Teva Respiratory is partnering with the Philadelphia Phillies to host Asthma Awareness Night at Citizens Bank Park on World Asthma Day, Tuesday, May 4, 2010, as well as supporting National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month as a Platinum sponsor of the American Lung Association's (ALA) 7th Annual Philadelphia Asthma Walk on Saturday May 1, 2010.
