With it being such a massive issue among Australians, researchers are constantly looking for ways to cure or better aid sufferers. One such instance is the the research team from the Hunter Medical Research Institute in New South Wales who released a report stating that an antibiotic used to treat a rare and deadly lung disease could be a lifesaver for adults with severe asthma.
