Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Morning Peak Expiratory Flow (mPEF) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in morning peak expiratory flow (mPEF) from baseline (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Turbuhaler) to Week 6 (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Respules)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evening Peak Expiratory Flow (ePEF) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in evening peak expiratory flow (ePEF) from baseline (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Turbuhaler) to Week 6 (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Respules)

  • Asthma Symptom Score (Daytime); Score of 0-3 (0 = no Asthma Symptoms - 3 = Severe Symptoms) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in Asthma symptom score (Daytime) from baseline (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Turbuhaler) to Week 6 (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Respules)

  • Asthma Symptom Score (Night-time); Score of 0-3 (0 = no Asthma Symptoms - 3 = Severe Symptoms) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in Asthma symptom score (Night-time) from baseline (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Turbuhaler) to Week 6 (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Respules)

  • Asthma Symptom Score (Total); Score of 0-3 (0 = no Asthma Symptoms - 3 = Severe Symptoms) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in Asthma symptom score (Total) from baseline (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Turbuhaler) to Week 6 (mean of the last 14 days of the period on Pulmicort Respules)

  • Use of Rescue Medication (Daytime) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
