Inhaled steroids with and without regular salmeterol for asthma: serious adverse events.

Epidemiological evidence has suggested a link between use of beta₂-agonists and increased asthma mortality. Much debate has surrounded possible causal links for this association, and whether regular...

The Frequency and Risk Factors for Oropharyngeal Candidiasis in Adult Asthma Patients Using Inhaled Corticosteroids.

Worldwide, asthma is a major health problem and inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are the mainstay of asthma treatment. High-dose and long-term use of ICS can result in some side effects. The present stud...

Efficacy and predictors of response to inhaled corticosteroid treatment for chronic cough.

Inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are a treatment of choice for eosinophilic airway diseases, but their efficacy for other causes of chronic cough is controversial.

Inhaled calcium salts inhibit tobacco smoke-induced inflammation by modulating expression of chemokines and cytokines.

Tobacco smoke-induced lung inflammation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) worsens with disease progression and acute exacerbations caused by respiratory infections. Chronic...

Effect of Theophylline as Adjunct to Inhaled Corticosteroids on Exacerbations in Patients With COPD: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major global health issue and theophylline is used extensively. Preclinical investigations have demonstrated that low plasma concentrations (1-5 mg/L)...

Clinical Trials [6285 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Mechanism(s) of Airflow Limitation During Exacerbation of Asthma

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the site and mechanisms responsible for expiratory airflow limitation in chronic, treated, non-smoking, stable asthmatics with moderate to severe p...

Step-up Yellow Zone Inhaled Corticosteroids to Prevent Exacerbations

The objective of this study is to determine whether, in children receiving low-dose inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), quintupling the dose of inhaled corticosteroids at the onset of symptoms ...

Effect of Add-on Montelukast to Inhaled Corticosteroids on Airway Responsiveness

Leukotriene receptor antagonists appear to posses additive anti-inflammatory effects to the effect of inhaled corticosteroids. Hypothesis: Treatment with oral montelukast will lower the d...

Analysis of Inhaled Corticoid Prescriptions in General Medicine

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma are frequent and disabling pathologies. The general practitioner is often at the front line vis-a-vis screening, diagnosis and treat...

Does Inhaled Busedonide or Fluticasone Impair Adrenal Function?

Inhaled corticosteroids are largely used in patients with asthma or chronic obstructive lung diseases. The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of inhaled corticosteroids is as...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Blocking of a blood vessel by fat deposits in the circulation. It is often seen after fractures of large bones or after administration of CORTICOSTEROIDS.

Inflammation of the large airways in the lung including any part of the BRONCHI, from the PRIMARY BRONCHI to the TERTIARY BRONCHI.

A group of corticosteroids carrying hydroxy groups, usually in the 11- or 17-positions. They comprise the bulk of the corticosteroids used systemically. As they are relatively insoluble in water, salts of various esterified forms are often used for injections or solutions.

Short-lived radioactive decay products of radon that include 216-Po, 214-Pb, 214-Bi, and 214-Po. They have an effective half-life of about 30 minutes and are solids that can deposit on the bronchial airways during inhalation and exhalation. This results in exposure of the respiratory airways to alpha radiation and can lead to diseases of the respiratory system, including lung cancer. (From Casarett and Doull's Toxicology, 4th ed, p740)

Illicit use of chemicals and products whose vapors can be inhaled to produce a rapid mind-altering effect. Inhalants include aerosols, gases, and volatile solvents that are often inhaled repeatedly to achieve the short-lived intoxicating effect.
