Clinical experience since many years has shown that aerosol inhalation is an established route for the treatment of pulmonary diseases. In contrast, treatment of systemic diseases by means of aerosol inhalation is a novel therapeutic approach. This was caused for a long time by a lack of accuracy, efficiency, and reproducibility of the administered drug doses due to a poor knowledge of the physiological background of aerosol inhalation, an insufficient inhaler technology as well as a suboptimal… CONTINUE READING
