The Additive Anti-inflammatory Effect of Simvastatin in Combination With Inhaled Corticosteroids in Asthma
The Additive Anti-inflammatory Effect of Simvastatin in Combination With Inhaled Corticosteroids in Asthma

We hypothesize that simvastatin in combination with ICS might have synergistic anti-inflammatory effects on airway inflammation in asthmatic patients

To determine the additive effect of simvastatin on airway inflammation in ICS-treated patients with persistent asthma by measuring eosinophil counts in induced sputum
