Assessment of the Efficacy and Safety of FlutiForm® pMDI 125/5 µg (2 Puffs Bid) Versus Symbicort® Turbohaler® 200/6 µg (2 Puffs Bid) in Adolescent and Adult Subjects With Moderate to Severe Persistent, Reversible Asthma

2014-08-27 03:14:45 | BioPortfolio


A comparator study to assess safety and efficacy of Flutiform® compared with symbicort turbohaler in asthma patients with moderate to severe persistent, reversible asthma.


This is a study involving a 2-4 week run-in phase followed by a 12 week double blind treatment phase. During the run-in phase, subjects receive Flixotide®. In the treatment phase subjects will be randomised to one of the two treatment groups and will receive either FlutiForm® and placebo inhaler for symbicort® turbohaler® or symbicort® turbohaler® and placebo inhaler for Flutiform ® . Efficacy will be assessed by lung function tests, asthma symptoms, sleep disturbance due to asthma and rescue medication use. Safety will be assessed by adverse events, lab tests, ECGs and vital signs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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

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