ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research on the role of three asthma inhalers containing salmeterol or formoterol in the increased likelihood of asthma-related deaths per year in the U.S. It references to a study by K. Ramanujan, published in the June 9, 2006 issue of "ChronicleOnline." An overview of the findings of the study are given. It is estimated that about 4000 of the 5000 asthma-related deaths that occur each year in the U.S. are caused by long-lasting beta-agonists.
