I mean the article literally says we’re not gonna completely replace MDIs. For patients who have such poor lung function they cant even use a powdered one then of coz we need to give them MDIs, but for patients who can tolerate a powdered alternative with less environmental side effects, then why not?? It literally says in Europe less than 50% of inhaler prescriptions are for MDIs, so it’s clearly doable.
They are. Heavily. You can barely go to a research conference without a study (pushed by the big pharma sponsors) about some wonderful new expensive type of inhaler. How about spending the research money on fixing things we don't have cures for? Carbon offsetting for inhaler use would cost basically nothing.
