Poor diet hampers ventolin delivery: study

A poor diet can impede the efficacy of asthma medications, and can worsen the condition itself, new research has found.

Data presented at this year’s meeting of the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ) revealed that while polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) enhanced the transport of ventolin (salbutamol), saturated fat inhibited drug transport.
