Methapharm Respiratory’s ambition is to ensure people with asthma symptoms have the right diagnosis.

Methapharm Respiratory is part of Methapharm Specialty Pharmaceuticals.

Asthma is one of the most prevalent chronic respiratory conditions globally. Ensuring that patients have the right diagnosis is the first step in improving the lives of millions of people who struggle with the disease. We provide clinicians with the diagnostic tools to accurately assess people experiencing symptoms like cough, wheeze and shortness of breath. Our globally trusted diagnostic products are recommended in the ERS/ATS guidelines as well as other international practice guidelines.

Bronchial challenge tests with Provocholine (methacholine) and Aridol (mannitol) are objective and evidence-based measures of airway hyperresponsiveness, a key feature of asthma, and are part of the diagnostic work-up for patients suspected of having asthma. The right diagnosis is key.

As a committed partner, we also offer training and education (CRCE) at no cost to support clinicians as they help patients along their diagnostic journey.

Clinical studies have shownthat up to 30% of patients did not have asthma when objectively assessed.

Consider the consequences of an incorrect diagnosis of asthma:

E

Ineffective treatments

Inappropriate medications

E

Poor quality of life

E
Poor symptom control

Impact on work and school performance
