To test the effectiveness of school-based asthma education interventions, community-based asthma health workers' programs and the combination of these on asthmatic children. Also, to examine the separate and combined impact of asthma interventions designed to address problems associated with effective asthma self-management amd difficulties in establishing and maintaining continuity of medical care.
To determine if teaching rural children with asthma and their parents about appropriate medication use, asthma triggers unique to a rural setting and increasing access to medical care will result in a decrease in emergency department visits.
The purpose of this study is to characterize adult subjects regarding their history of allergy and asthma, clinical manifestations of asthma, and exposures and conditions that may influence asthma severity and control. Assessments include baseline medical history, lung function tests, questionnaires and collection of specimens for phenotypic characterization.
To study three possible, but yet unproven, influences on pediatric asthma hospitalization rates - diagnostic substitution, different systems of medical care, and asthma medication use.
To assess the separate and interactive effects of asthma severity, subspecialty practice variation, asthma-related psychosocial variables, and other factors on asthma outcomes, including asthma-specific quality of life and activity limitations, health care utilization for asthma, and direct and indirect costs of asthma.
The purpose of this study is to determine if exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) levels will be increased in pediatric patients with uncontrolled asthma as determined by the Asthma Control Test (ACT). During the study the investigators will also examine if the combination of eNO and ACT will better predict asthma control that either tool alone when compared to a medical provider's assessment of the patient's asthma control.
It is unknown whether surgical treatment of chronic sinusitis improves asthma control in patients with poorly controlled asthma. This is a randomized trial of surgical plus medical sinus therapy versus medical therapy alone.
The Influence of TaKeTiNa Music Therapy, Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Clown Theatrical Performance on Quality of Life and the Therapeutic Process of Patients Undergoing Allogenic Stem Cell Transplantation
The allogenic stem cell transplantation (aSCT), the only curative approach for many hematological diseases often leads to severe diseases or chronic conditions, leaving patients with physical disabilities and severe depression and impacting their quality of life in many cases. These consequences are still not adequately addressed by conventional therapies. In this study, the investigators examine the influence of the three complementary medicine methods (CAM) namely acupuncture...
Asthma is a chronic disorder of the airways primarily driven by increased airway inflammation, and is an escalating medical problem in Canada. For example, between 1994 and 2001 there was a 40% increase in the number of Canadians who had asthma. Not only is the prevalence of asthma increasing but there has been a rapid rise in the number of asthma events and costs associated with asthma and poor asthma control. It has been estimated that the global cost of caring for asthma exc...
Asthma can be effectively controlled using inhaled corticosteroid medication. Treatment with inhaled corticosteroids often requires periodic adjustments to medication dosing and frequency levels. This study examines whether it is more beneficial to adjust corticosteroid treatment based on asthma symptoms and/or biomarkers of lung function versus standard medical guidelines.
This study will establish a multi-disciplinary home visitation team consisting of a medical provider and school teacher or staff member, and will evaluate whether a series of visits from this team will help decrease school absenteeism among children with asthma.
The aim of the research is to assess the duration of a delay in asthma diagnosis in children after the Program for Prevention of Allergic Diseases. Risk factors for delayed diagnosis of asthma in children will also be assessed. This study will answer the question of whether this ratio depends on the time, which indirectly proves that it can be changed by local intervention programs. Prove lasting effects of the Program may contribute to planning further local interventions focu...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of the Alair System for the treatment of asthma. This will be a multicenter, randomized controlled study comparing the effects of treatment with the Alair System to standard drug therapy. One-hundred and ten subjects will be randomized 1:1 to either the Alair Group (Medical management + Alair treatment),or Control Group (Medical management only).
