Didn't want to barge in on the "boys' post but am interested in the article "Soligenix gets US patent for using beclomethasone diproprionate......to treat IBS". This is the same drug given for asthma in an inhaler device. However, given this way it does not produce systemic effects ie only goes to the lungs unless given at a very high dose. When asthma deteriorates oral prednisolone is given but this works systemically. I don't think in the UK we have an oral form of beclomethasone. So, I was wondering if anyone with asthma who has used oral steroids ie prednisolone noticed if their IBS improved. Do you think Soligenix believe there is an allergic response going on? Wouldn't necessarily want to be taking high dose steroids -osteoporosis comes to mind so presumably this tablet would have to be a fairly low dose.
