  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
May not be applicable to young children whose asthma is more severe than that of the children in the study. Daily or intermittent use of inhaled glucocorticoids may not be efficacious in preschool-age children with transient or infrequent wheezing.
