To conduct a collaborative program of research on asthma and pregnancy consisting of two studies: the Asthma in PregnancyStudy (APS) was an observational study to evaluate relationships between asthma severity and treatment programs and perinatal outcome, and the Asthma Therapy in Pregnancy Trial (ATPT) was a randomized clinical trial of inhaled beclomethasone versus theophylline in the treatment of moderate asthma during pregnancy. Both studies were conducted in the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Unit (MFMU) Network, an ongoing group of participating obstetric centers supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Studies were co-funded by the NHLBI.
