Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Severe Asthma Exacerbations Per Participant. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Time to first severe asthma exacerbation, translated to mean number of severe asthma exacerbations per participant. A severe asthma exacerbation is defined as deterioration in asthma requiring oral/systemic glucocorticosteroids for at least 3 days and/or hospitalisation/emergency room visit with oral/systemic glucocorticosteroid treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Fraction of Participants With Severe Asthma Exacerbation [ Time Frame: 6 months. ]
    The total number of severe asthma exacerbations was calculated for each participant. A severe asthma exacerbation is defined as deterioration in asthma requiring oral/systemic glucocorticosteroids for at least 3 days and/or hospitalisation/emergency room visit with oral/systemic glucocorticosteroid treatment.

  • Total Number of Severe Asthma Exacerbations That Led to Hospitalisation and/or Emergency Room Treatment. [ Time Frame: 6 months. ]
    A severe asthma exacerbation is defined as deterioration in asthma requiring oral/systemic glucocorticosteroids for at least 3 days and/or hospitalisation/emergency room visit with oral/systemic glucocorticosteroid treatment. Number of events per participant

  • Total Number of Days Per Participant With Oral/Systemic Glucocorticosteroids During Severe Asthma Exacerbation [ Time Frame: 6 months. ]
    Total number of days with oral/systemic glucocorticosteroids during severe exacerbation calculated for each participant. A severe asthma exacerbation is defined as deterioration in asthma requiring oral/systemic glucocorticosteroids for at least 3 days and/or hospitalisation/emergency room visit with oral/systemic glucocorticosteroid treatment.

  • Mean Daily Number of Inhalations of As-needed Medication. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    The number of as-needed inhalations was measured 2 times during 2 weeks before 13 weeks and 26 weeks of treatment.

  • Percent of Participants With a Well Controlled Asthma Week. [ Time Frame: 6 months. ]
    The mean percent of participants fulfilling the criteria for a well controlled asthma week in each treatment. A well controlled asthma week is defined as a week with no exacerbations and no night-time awakenings due to asthma and a maximum of 2 days with symptoms and as-needed inhalation use.

  • Mean Overall Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ) Score [ Time Frame: 6 months. ]
    The ACQ5 was used. The lower value the better with a full range from 0=no impairment, 6= maximum impairment. Awakenings, morning symptoms, limitations, shortness of breath and wheeze.

  • The Mean Total Daily Dose of Steroids From Symbicort. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    The mean total daily dose of steroids from Symbicort was calculated as the sum of the maintenance dose and the as-needed dose.

  • Mean Cost Per Participant Per Country [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Mean cost is calculated for each country using participants from the whole study and country specific costs. Mean value for the whole study can not be calculated.
