Under normal conditions, therefore, coughing serves an important protective role in the airways and lungs. In diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and rhinitis, however, cough may become excessive and nonproductive, and is potentially harmful to the airway mucosa (4). These contrasting consequences of coughing highlight the difficulty associated with developing therapeutic strategies that prevent excessive and nonproductive cough, while preserving the important innate defensive role of this respiratory reflex.
