A Comparison of Mometasone to Advair in Patients With Milder Persistent Asthma

2014-08-26 22:39:03 | BioPortfolio


The research hypothesis for the proposed study asks the question, can Asmanex® demonstrate comparable anti-inflammatory therapeutic efficacy to the combination product, Advair® in control of mild persistent asthma?

The purpose is to demonstrate that the anti-inflammatory protection afforded by monotherapy with an inhaled steroid (Asmanex®) is comparable to combination therapy with Advair® 100/50, when measured by this standard methodology (methacholine bronchoprovocation) in subjects with mild persistent asthma.

Mometasone furoate nasal spray in the treatment of nasal polyposis in Chinese patients: a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial.

Although mometasone furoate nasal spray (MFNS) has demonstrated efficacy in nasal polyposis (NP) in Western populations, data in Asian populations is limited.

Association between asthma self-management knowledge and asthma control in the elderly.

Considerable evidence points to the importance of patient education in achieving better asthma control. However, little is known about the effect of older adults' asthma knowledge on asthma control.

Obese asthma patients have poorer asthma control.

Current literature indicates that asthma is more prevalent among obese individuals. In addition, studies have shown that higher body mass index (BMI), particularly BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2, is associated with...

Clinical asthma phenotyping: A trial for bridging gaps in asthma management.

Asthma is a common disease affecting millions of people worldwide and exerting an enormous strain on health resources in many countries. Evidence is increasing that asthma is unlikely to be a single d...

Asthma Control Test and Asthma Control Questionnaire: factorial validity, reliability and correspondence in assessing status and change in asthma control.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

Drugs that are used to treat asthma.

A beta-adrenergic agonist used in the treatment of asthma and bronchospasms.

An adrenergic beta-agonist used as a bronchodilator agent in asthma therapy.

Adrenergic beta-2 agonist used as bronchodilator for emphysema, bronchitis and asthma.
