Study Description
Brief Summary:
Control of airway inflammation is the cornerstone of asthma management. The aim of the present pilot study was to assess whether, and in which magnitude, a leukotriene receptor antagonist (LTRA) added to a basic treatment of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) + long-acting betamimetics (LABA) might improve airway hyperresponsiveness and inflammation in well-controlled patients with asthma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Asthma Drug: montelukast Phase 4
