Herbal Medicine Reduces Inflammation in Allergen-Induced Asthma

We've talked before about alternative treatments for allergies, asthma, and related conditions like eczema. And we love spreading the word about natural remedies for allergies. Following is promising news regarding an Asian herbal allergy treatment.

Medical News Today reports on new findings published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology that point to the success of "a traditional Korean medicine, SO-CHEONG-RYONG-TANG (SCRT) that has long been used for the treatment of allergic diseases in Asia."

Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine have demonstrated that therapy with SCRT treatment alleviates asthma-like pulmonary inflammation by suppressing specific chemokines, or proteins.

Interestingly, the researchers tested the success of SCRT in reducing inflammation by applying the treatment to asthma symptoms induced by house dust extract containing cockroach allergen and endotoxin.

As research assistant professor of pathology and laboratory medicine Jiyoun Kim, PhD describes, "In this study multiple aspects of pulmonary inflammation were examined including the production of inflammatory mediators and the pulmonary recruitment of inflammatory cells."

Results showed that SCRT treatment significantly reduced airway hyper-reactivity. In addition, the immune response of pulmonary inflammation was significantly reduced.
