During this study, your child will need to attend up to 5 office visits and maintain regular telephone contact with the clinic. Certain office visits will include physical exams, medical history review, exercise challenge test (walking/running on a treadmill), electrocardiogram (ECG) tests, and lung function tests. All study related medications and medical examinations are provided at no cost. All study drugs are currently available by prescription to patients 4 years and older.

Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Stratified, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Parallel Group, 4-Week Comparison of Fluticasone Propionate/Salmeterol DISKUS Combination Product 100/50mcg BID Versus Fluticasone Propionate DISKUS 100mcg BID in Pediatric and Adolescent Subjects With Activity-Induced Bronchospasm

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in maximal decline from baseline in lung function following exercise challenge after 4-weeks of double-blind treatment compared to decline in lung function before treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Daily lung function tests and subject assessed diary measures analyzed over the 4-week treatment.

Enrollment: 255
Study Start Date: December 2003

    Other Name: Fluticasone propionate/salmeterol

Ages Eligible for Study:   4 Years to 17 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria:

  • Diagnosed with persistent asthma for 3 months or longer.
  • Experienced worsened asthma symptoms during physical activity.
  • Using an inhaled steroid for the previous 4 weeks or longer (such as Aerobid, Azmacort, Flovent, Pulmicort, QVAR, and Vanceril).

Exclusion criteria:

  • Used systemic steroids as either liquids, pills, or injections to treat asthma within the previous 3 months.
