New information on the bronchiectasis patient priorities website aims to keep you informed about antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs (drugs that reduce swelling) and other medicines in development.
Drugs cannot be used to treat people in Europe until they have gone through clinical trials. Clinical trials are research studies that test whether new drugs are safe and effective in people.
This new information (which we’re calling ‘Drugs in development’) was prompted by the bronchiectasis patient advisory group (PAG) and has been developed by bronchiectasis medical experts in Europe. It has also been reviewed by members of our bronchiectasis PAG. In the future, ‘Drugs in development’ will be reviewed regularly to make sure that it is up to date.
You can find out about some of the different ways you can get involved in research and clinical trials on the ‘Drugs in development’ web page.
