A Comparison of Mometasone to Advair in Patients With Milder Persistent Asthma
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.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

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.
The effect of topical mometasone for adenoid hypertrophy treatment is well established. Nevertheless, the influence of atopy on this treatment remains ill defined.

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.
