Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition marked by airway inflammation, difficulty breathing and cough, affecting more than 265 million globally. Uncontrolled asthma is expected to cost the US alone $300 billion in the next 20 years.
Asthma is also a major cause of emergency department visits and hospitalizations in children, and many could be prevented.
