Subjects between the ages of 20-45 with mild to moderate asthma will be recruited. Following consent, subjects will undergo an evaluation to assure no underlying metabolic bone disease. Individuals will be treated with inhaled fluticasone low or high dose, daily for 3 months. Serum and urine biochemical markers of bone metabolism will be collected at baseline and monthly for three months. Adherence to study medication and adverse events will be collected at monthly intervals. Differences between fluticasone low and high dose treated individuals will be analyzed between groups and compared with baseline values.
This study will be a prospective randomized trial. Thirty subjects with mild to moderate asthma will receive inhaled fluticasone propionate. Fifteen patients will receive low dose inhaled fluticasone 88 mcg twice daily. Fifteen patients will receive inhaled fluticasone 440 mcg twice daily. The primary outcome will be biochemical markers of bone turnover. These will include 1) serum biochemical markers of bone formation [osteocalcin, bone specific alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and procollagen I C-terminal propeptide (PICP)] and 2) markers of bone resorption, serum collagen type 1 C-Telopeptide (CTx) urinary N-telopeptide (NTx) and immunoreactive free deoxypyridinoline (iFDpd)]. Secondary endpoints will include, parathyroid hormone (PTH), Urinary Calcium/creatinine, and adverse events.

This research study will compare the treatment effects of three different asthma medications in asthma subjects whose asthma is well controlled when they take fluticasone, an inhaled corti...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of Fluticasone/ salmeterol combination and double the dose of fluticasone on airway hyper-responsiveness to methacholine.
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate superiority of Fluticasone/Formoterol (Flutiform®) to Fluticasone/salmeterol based on the small airway function by assessing the Impulse Oscill...
This study will last up to 62 weeks. You will visit the clinic up to 17 times. Certain clinic visits will include physical examination, medical history review and lung function tests. The ...
The medications being used in this study are individually approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The medication under investigation is a combination of two medications in one ...
Asthma is the most chronic inflammatory disease of the airways worldwide. Combination therapy with inhaled fluticasone and salmeterol is a common practice for the long-term management of asthma. Seret...
The Asthma Salford Lung Study demonstrated the effectiveness of initiating once-daily fluticasone furoate/vilanterol (FF/VI) versus continuing usual care in asthma patients in UK primary care . Her...
There is a scarcity of studies that assessed the association between adherence to combination therapy and asthma control in pediatric patients. The authors investigated the association between adheren...
Inhaled Corticosteroids (ICS) are the cornerstone of asthma management in pediatric patients. However, in some cases, asthma is not adequately controlled on ICS alone. Long-acting beta-agonists (LABA)...
Menopausal asthma is considered a distinct asthma phenotype. Our aim was to identify potential specific features of asthma in postmenopausal women in a cohort of Polish females.
A drug combination of fluticasone and salmeterol that is used as an inhaler formulation to manage the symptoms of ASTHMA and CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE.
A STEROID with GLUCOCORTICOID RECEPTOR activity that is used to manage the symptoms of ASTHMA; ALLERGIC RHINITIS, and ATOPIC DERMATITIS.
Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.
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.
The term allergy is used to describe a response, within the body, to a substance, which is not necessarily harmful in itself, but results in an immune response and a reaction that causes symptoms and disease in a predisposed person, which in turn can cau...
