Montelukast, a oncedaily leukotriene receptor antagonist, in the treatment of chronic asthma: a multicenter, randomized, double-blind trial.
[16-20] Since inhaled or oral corticosteroids have not been shown to attenuate leukotriene production in vivo [21], therefore, a leukotriene receptor antagonist in combination with inhaled corticosteroid may confer additional benefits and could be the best combination.

For patients who have an inadequate response to an inhaled SABA before exercise and/or patients who require an inhaled SABA daily or more frequently, a controller agent such as an inhaled corticosteroid or a leukotriene receptor antagonist is recommended.

This minority of asthmatics likely represents the fraction of asthmatics that would improve significantly from anti-leukotriene drugs, including a 5-lipoxygenase inhibitor or leukotriene receptor antagonist. These drugs are not completely efficacious in blocking this pathway, however, and a strategy of decreasing the total burden of leukotriene production further by supplementing with omega-3-rich fish oil is rational.
