This could be something big. COPD ranks fourth in all cause mortality, IIRC.

Sounds promising. My mother has COPD & emphysema, 24/7 oxygen since 2/2007, I wish it was definite and available to help her. Her lung function is way below 30% and I fear the near future for her.

Interesting. I wonder how the results using bitter taste receptors would compare with the CFC inhalers that the FDA and EPA removed from the market because of the Kyoto Protocol.

As an asthma sufferer for the past ten years, all I can say is: WWWWWWOOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!”

If this is true, the ramifications are earth shattering in the asthma community!

To be able to toss fast acting inhalers which, have side effects, for a non-toxic substitute!

Spec-frigging-tacular!!!
