Tezspire for Breathing Your Best!
Tezspire Is a game-changer for Asthma Control
At its core, asthma is a disease of inflammation. That inflammation is concentrated in the breathing tubes (bronchi) of the lungs. This inflammation drives constriction of the bronchi, causing wheezing, cough, and shortness of breath. In addition, extra mucus is produced resulting in a moist, rattly cough.
Decades ago, research studies uncovered the central role of inflammation in asthma. Clinical studies since have shown that medicines that reduce inflammation are hugely important in controlling asthma. Glucocorticoid steroids were found to be very powerful in shutting down this inflammation. Prednisone, a steroid taken orally, has been used to shut down this inflammation. But prednisone has horrible side effects like opening you for bacterial infection and altering your emotions. Plus, in kids, the liquid forms taste very bad and makes kids vomit.
Inhaled Steroids and Asthma
A form of steroid that you inhale from a puffer (metered dose inhaler or MDI) was developed that avoids the terrible side effects of oral steroids like prednisone. Adding these inhaled steroids to the asthma action plan for moderate and severe asthma sufferers has been tremendously helpful in reducing their asthma attacks. For best control, they need to be used twice a day, everyday, and if delivered from a MDI, a chamber (or spacer) must be used to make sure the medicine is deeply inhaled. Without a spacer, much of the medicine ends up on the tongue and in the throat where it causes a painful yeast infection (thrush).
Attacking the Inflammation Molecule
More recent scientific studies discovered that particular chemicals in the lining of bronchi are to blame for the underlying inflammation. One of these chemicals, thymic stromal lymphoprotein (TSLP) triggers the release of other chemicals that activate inflammation. Capturing and deactivating TSLP stops inflammation in its tracks. The new drug, TezspireⓇ does just that!
How is TezspireⓇ administered?
This medication comes in a prefilled pen injector that is placed next to the skin of your abdomen or leg and activated. The inside mechanism of the pen quickly inserts a fine needle 5 mm into your skin while the device pushes 1.9 ml of liquid medicine into the subcutaneous tissue.
Taking this injection once a month, Yes, ONCE A MONTH, dramatically reduces wheezing episodes and dependence on steroids.
