Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Recruitment process was done in the Asthma Research Lab. Note that 88 were screened and 4 subjects randomized but determined to be ineligile before starting treatment. They are amongst the screen failures.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Subjects qualified in the screening visit went into a 7 day run-in-period They needed to have a 20% peak flow overnight drop on 3/7 nights in order to qualify for overnight stays in the Clinical Research Center. Arms are identified by order of treatment assignment. Any other designation is not consistent with our protocol requirements.

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Nocturnal asthma model is a very sensitive model, but very labor intensive and to get more completed subjects, we might need to do multicenter trial
