ABSTRACT
The article features theophylline as a bronchodilator in the treatment of chronic obstructive lung disease. The introduction of new drugs resulted to the decrease in the prescription for theophylline. However, as new insights to the molecular action have been discovered, a possibility is seen for theophylline to gain back its popularity as far as prescription is concerned.
