Prospective Study on Asthma Control
Cross-sectional and Prospective Observational Study Aimed to Assess the Prevalence of Uncontrolled and Partially Controlled Asthmatics in Italy and the Prevalence of Uncontrolled/Partially Controlled Patients Achieved Asthma Control After 12 Months

Accordingly, the new update of the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) guidelines 2006 is based on the control of the disease and attempts to quantify and graduate the level of control by using a classification of asthmatic subjects into controlled,partly controlled and uncontrolled groups.

Achieving and maintaining optimal asthma control is a major goal of asthma management. Although the results of clinical trials advocate that asthma control can be reached in most patients, there is evidence that many subjects with asthma have poorly controlled disease and that there is a significant gap between the treatment goals and the current level of asthma control achieved in the general population.

The aim of this study is to assess the prevalence of uncontrolled and partly controlled asthma in Italy using a patient-based tool such as Asthma Control Test.
