Furthermore, 16 million Americans are diagnosed with COPD and is the leading cause of death in the U.S. Erdosteine improves oxidative stress as it decreases viscoelastic properties and bacterial adhesion to the cell membrane, and a scavenging effect on free oxidant radicals, thereby fuelling the product demand.

Increase in respiratory disease is attributed to the increase in air pollution. People breathing poor air can have coughs and asthma symptoms. Exposure to polluted air directly leads to the development of medical conditions which includes bronchitis, respiratory infections, heart diseases, cancer and strokes. In the EU over 430,000 people die every year prematurely as a result of breathing polluted air. Mucolytic medicines aid in treating symptoms of acute flare ups in diseases such as asthma & chronic bronchitis. Erdosteine is used in manufacturing various pharmaceutical drug to avert these diseases caused by pollution. These drugs also improve lung function owing to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
