This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
GlaxoSmithKline Identifier:
First received: July 11, 2006
Last updated: November 10, 2011
Last verified: November 2011
This study will investigate whether study subjects with previously uncontrolled asthma treated with SERETIDE Diskus 50/250 CCI18781+GR33343 mcg twice a day can attain a level of Total Control of their condition and whether adherence to treatment can be enhanced by teaching the subjects. Two groups of equal size with identical medical treatment will be compared with each other, the test group receiving three training modules during study visits and the control group regular study visits only.

Condition Intervention Phase
Asthma Behavioral: motivation asthma education (compliance enhancement) Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Official Title: A Randomized, Open Label Comparative Study to Determine the Proportion of Asthma Patients on SERETIDE Diskus 50/250 Mcg b.i.d. Achieving Total Control When Given Medication and Compliance Enhancement Training Compared to Those Receiving Medication Only.
