Several methods are available for assessing drug effects on airway inflammation and the antiinflammatory effects of drugs for asthma. Cromolyn and theophylline are well-established drugs for the treatment of asthma, and each has antiinflammatory properties. Drugs in development include those aimed at inhibiting inflammatory mediators and immunoglobulin E function; clinical studies, however, have been conducted largely in patients with moderate to severe asthma.
