Asthma drug for COPD ?

AFTER years of smoking or exposure to dust or chemicals, breathing tubes can become damaged, not allowing sufficient air to go in and out of the lungs. Might a drug asthmatics use to ease breathing help those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)?

A study randomly assigned 140 current or former smokers with moderate to severe COPD to inhale a drug that contains a combination of salmeterol and fluticasone or a placebo twice a day. Bronchial tube biopsies revealed that, after three months, people taking the drug had 36% fewer cells that inflame the airways than did the others. Their scores on lung function tests also were better.

Who may be affected by these findings? People with COPD, which affects 24 million Americans and is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
