Many patients suffering from allergic rhinitis do not recognize or perceive their symptoms. Instruments have been developed to assess quality of life in rhinitis, asthma or both, but there is a need to develop validated tools or methods to assess rhinitis control among rhinitis and/or asthmatic patients. The aim of this study is to assess the discriminative and evaluative properties of the RCSS in asthmatic patients with allergic rhinitis.
Allergic asthmatic subjects showing seasonal rhinitis symptoms will be recruited. The discriminative (internal consistency, cross sectional construct validity and reliability) and evaluative (responsiveness and longitudinal construct validity) properties of the RCSS will be evaluated as well as the relationship between rhinitis control and asthma control. RCSS will be completed at various time points during the seasonal allergic period.

The purpose of this study was to test the effectiveness and safety of desloratadine (Aerius) syrup in children with hayfever with or without asthma. Patients took desloratadine syrup once...
This double-blind pilot study was conducted to establish the best way of using desloratadine treatment to protect quality of life of chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) patients, after an i...
This was a one-day single dose trial conducted to compare patient's preference for Nasonex® (mometasone) versus Flonase® nasal spray. Each patient was randomized to take one dose (2 spr...
Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood. For children with persistent asthma, asthma control is largely related to controller medication adherence. With increasing calls for chi...
Many asthmatic women of childbearing age experience cyclical aggravation of asthmatic symptoms during the perimenstrual period, or perimenstrual asthma (PMA). PMA is considered to be a difficult-to-tr...

To investigate whether patients with moderate to severe asthma who commence an exercise training program in winter or summer show differences in exercise capacity, health-related quality of life (HRQo...
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.
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...
Asthma is caused by inflammation of small tubes, called bronchi, which carry air in and out of the lungs. If you have asthma, the bronchi will be inflamed and more sensitive than normal. When you come into contact with something that irritates your...
