Comparison Efficacy in Patients With Asthma Using Foster MDI and Relvar Medications

2019-12-05 00:03:07 | BioPortfolio


This is a randomized study to compare asthma patients using Foster or Relvar.


The Global Asthma Association (GAA) and the World Allergy Organization (WAO) recently issued statements stating that the small airway is caused by asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Both pathogenesis and treatment play an important role. The small airway is an airway with diameter less than 2 mm and is one of the main sites where airflow obstruction occurs. Small particles (<2 μm) and large particles are more likely to deposit in the distal airways, and have shown to have better effects on asthma and pulmonary obstruction. At the same time, real-life research has also shown that extra-fine particles provide better asthma control than large particles, and can better improve quality of life.The aim of the study is to compare the efficacy of asthma inhalers between extra-fine particles and non-extra-fine particles.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.

Families who care for neglected children or patients unable to care for themselves.

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).

The field that studies interactions between individuals and the built and natural environment. It includes investigating behaviors that inhibit or foster sustainable, climate-healthy, and nature-enhancing choices.

Individual who is unable to live safely with his or her family, usually due to abuse or neglect in the family home. In most instances the placement is or is intended to be non-permanent and is placed with another family.
