Airway Hyper-responsiveness Study In Asthma Using Salmeterol/Fluticasone Propionate Combination Product

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. Identifier: NCT00291382
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : February 14, 2006

Brief Summary:
This double-blind, stratified, parallel group study is to determine whether aiming for 'Total control' results in better airway hyper-responsiveness than maintaining the treatment level at which 'Well-controlled' asthma was achieved. The primary endpoint is the mean change in PC20 methacholine. Well controlled subjects (as assessed after a 12 week run-in period) will enter a 24 week treatment period during which they will record PEF(Peak Expiratory Flow), symptoms, rescue beta2-agonist use over 24 hours, night time awakenings, asthma exacerbations, emergency visits due to asthma and Adverse Events. At every visit lung function measurements and airway hyper-responsiveness will be measured.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Asthma Drug: Salmeterol/fluticasone propionate combination Phase 4

Detailed Description:
A multi-centre, randomised, double blind, stratified, and parallel group study to evaluate whether a treatment strategy based on aiming for 'Total control' results in better airway hyper-responsiveness than a treatment strategy based on maintaining the treatment level at which 'Well-controlled' asthma was achieved.
