Children with asthma that had been diagnosed between the ages of two and five years were more likely to have persistent asthma by age 12 years, compared with children whose asthma was diagnosed before age two (58 percent versus 45 percent, respectively).
Few children with persistent asthma received any anti-inflammatory treatment.
Sobieraj, Pharm.D., from the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy in Storrs, and colleagues reviewed the effects associated with LAMA versus placebo versus another controller as an adjunct to inhaled corticosteroids in patients with uncontrolled persistent asthma. Data were included from 15 randomized clinical trials with 7,122 patients.
Here are the Hogan's tips for children with persistent asthma:
The Promotora program has engaged 200 patients diagnosed with persistent asthma, and their families, in the first year of operation from September 2015 to September 2016.
The likelihood of abnormal Spirometry did not increase with worsening of asthma severity, Abnormal PFTs were found in 78.9% of patients with mild intermittent asthma, 76.4% with mild persistent asthma, and 69.2% with moderate persistent asthma.
Nearly two-thirds of the respondents (17) reported always initiating inhaled steroids for patients with persistent asthma; the other 11 expressed at least some hesitation.
* Mild persistent asthma: Symptoms occur more than twice a week but not every day; lung function is 80 percent or greater than predicted.
Inhaled corticosteroids are given to treat mild, moderate and severe persistent asthma. Intermittent asthma is the only classification of asthma that is managed without a steroid.
The average age of the children was 11 years and 80 per cent of them had moderate persistent asthma. At the start of the study, around 28 per cent of the caregivers reported that the child was exposed to second-hand smoke in the home and 19 per cent reported exposure to smoke outside the home only.
All had previously been diagnosed with asthma, with 58% being judged by their providers as having intermittent asthma, 23% as having mild persistent asthma, 18% as having moderate persistent asthma, and 2% as having severe persistent asthma.
"As the first inhaled corticosteroid that is approved for once-daily dosing in children as young as age 4, the approval of the pediatric indication for Asmanex provides an important treatment option for children with moderate and mild persistent asthma," comments Dr.
