Researchers are preparing to bring a new weapon to fight hay fever and asthma and the weapon in trial is nothing other than the wrinkle-erasing Botox.
Yes, researchers have started conducting a trial of a Botox nasal gel in an effort to relieve hay fever sufferers for up to three months.
According to experts, the gel will block the nerve endings in the nasal passage, which will further help in reducing inflammation, thereby, halting the onset of related symptoms. The gel can be applied with a cotton bud and penetrates the nasal tissue, added the researchers.
"We hope this world-first trial will be the first step towards relief for millions of sufferers worldwide", said Mr. Philip Bardin, Professor at Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne, Australia.
The previous trials of the treatment over running noses and itchy eyes have been very successful, claim researchers and so the chances are higher that the treatment can go on sale within this year.
The ongoing work of researchers is practicing to inject Botox into the vocal cords of severe asthma patients with an aim to help them overcome their muscle spasms. Almost 82% patients have showed positive results of the treatment with reduced symptoms.
