Study Of Asthma And Genetics In Patients To Be Treated With Fluticasone Propionate/Salmeterol Or Salmeterol Xinafoate
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This study may last up to 36-38 weeks. Patients will visit the clinic 11 times. A blood sample will be taken at Visit 1 to look at subjects' genes. Breathing tests will be done during the study. Study medicines and procedures will be provided at no cost. Patients will be treated with VENTOLIN (8 wks), ATROVENT (8 wks), then ADVAIR or SEREVENT (16 wks). ADVAIR and SEREVENT are FDA approved for the treatment of asthma in patients 4 years of age and older.
