Sixty-six subjects were randomised to SFC or FP/M for 12 weeks. The primary outcome was changes in neutrophil, eosinophil, macrophage, lymphocyte, and epithelial cell levels in induced sputum. Additional outcomes included the change in other sputum markers of airway inflammation, airway responsiveness, symptom control, and lung function.
Patients prescribed FDC ICS/LABA had significantly greater odds of experiencing oral thrush than those prescribed long-acting bronchodilators alone (adjusted OR 2.18 [95% CI 1.84-2.59]). Significantly fewer patients prescribed BUD/FOR DPI developed oral thrush compared with FP/SAL DPI (OR 0.77 [0.63-0.94]) when allowing for differences in prescribed doses between the drugs. A significantly smaller proportion of patients developed oral thrush in the FP/SAL pMDI arm than in the FP/SAL DPI arm (OR 0.67 [0.55-0.82]). Additionally, in the FP/SAL cohort (both DPI and pMDI), increased risk of oral thrush was significantly associated with high ICS daily dose (OR 1.97 [1.22-3.17] vs low daily dose).

The nature of the drug-drug aggregation phenomena between salmeterol xinafoate and fluticasone propionate used in a metered-dose inhaler system has been examined. Interactions between the drugs in the solvents 1,1,2-trichlorotrifloroethane (CFC-113) and 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane (HFA-134a) have been characterised using a focused beam reflectance measurement probe by measuring the average floc size of the drug particles individually and in combination as a function of stirrer rate. The floc composition in the CFC-113 system, where the drug particles cream, was determined by high-performance liquid chromatography analysis. The aggregation behaviour of the individual drugs was shown to depend on the physical and chemical properties of both the drug substance and the media. Larger flocs were observed for salmeterol xinafoate compared with fluticasone propionate, while both drugs formed larger aggregates in HFA-134a compared with in CFC-113. The floc composition studies demonstrated that, in the combined formulation in CFC-113, salmeterol xinafoate and fluticasone propionate aggregate together to form hetero-flocs. The interaction between the two drugs was such that they did not separate on creaming, despite having different densities. The average floc size of the combined drug suspension was also found to depend on the dispersion medium.

Based on our decision analysis, the additional costs for achieving incremental effectiveness with single-inhaler salmeterol/fluticasone propionate treatment compared with FPIC and nFPIC may be lower than the commonly accepted benchmark value for cost effectiveness, based on published estimates of the utility losses associated with asthma symptoms. Single-inhaler salmeterol/fluticasone propionate may also be more cost effective than leukotriene modifiers.

773 patients (mean FEV1 57.2% predicted) were randomised; 84.9% completed the trial. At week 12, GLY+SAL/FP demonstrated non-inferiority to TIO+SAL/FP for trough FEV1: least square mean treatment difference (LSMdiff) -7 mL (SE 17.4) with a lower limit for non-inferiority of -60 mL. There was significant increase in week 12 trough FEV1 with GLY+SAL/FP versus PLA+SAL/FP (LSMdiff 101 mL, p<0.001). At 12 weeks, GLY+SAL/FP produced significant improvement in St George's Respiratory Questionnaire total score versus PLA+SAL/FP (LSMdiff -2.154, p=0.02). GLY+SAL/FP demonstrated significant rescue medication reduction versus PLA+SAL/FP (LSMdiff -0.72 puffs/day, p<0.001). Serious adverse events were similar for GLY+SAL/FP, TIO+SAL/FP and PLA+SAL/FP with an incidence of 5.8%, 8.5% and 5.8%, respectively.

Low adherence and persistence to inhaled therapy result in poor outcomes in patients with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Although adherence has been widely studied, growing awareness of the large number of patients who abandon their asthma treatment suggests that persistence to treatment may be more relevant for longer term outcomes.

A randomised, placebo-controlled, crossover trial was conducted of simvastatin 40 mg at night with simultaneous stepwise reduction of fluticasone propionate dose until loss of control occurred, followed by an increase until regain of control ('minimum' dose required) in 51 patients with asthma and sputum eosinophils (steroid-free) ≥ 2%.

The aim of the study was to evaluate life quality (LQ) of patients with severe bronchial asthma (BA) in connection with the degree of the disease control. Seventy two BA outpatients were divided into two groups: 50 patients with uncontrolled BA, and 22 patients who had achieved full BA control thanks to combined therapy with salmeterol plus fluticasone propionate in a dose of 1000 mg per day during 3 months. Clinical symptoms, respiratory parameters, and daily requirement of broncholytics were under study. General and specialized questionnaires (SF-36; AQLQ) were used to evaluate LQ. The study revealed that full BA control lead not only to improvement of clinical symptoms and positive changes in the respiratory function, but to significant increase of LQ as well. Thus, achievement of full BA control as a complex goal of treatment increases patients' LQ, especially in social sphere.

Constitutional factors such as age, sex and height, and acquired factors such as atopy and smoking, influence exhaled nitric oxide (F(E)NO) levels. The utility of predicted values based on reference equations which account for these factors has not been evaluated.

A total of 92 participants were randomized. Twelve (13%) subjects demonstrated PCR evidence of M pneumoniae or C pneumoniae in endobronchial biopsies; 80 were PCR-negative for both organisms. In PCR-positive participants, clarithromycin yielded a 0.4 ± 0.4 unit improvement in the Asthma Control Questionnaire score, with a 0.1 ± 0.3 unit improvement in those allocated to placebo. This between-group difference of 0.3 ± 0.5 (P = .6) was neither clinically nor statistically significant. In PCR-negative participants, a nonsignificant between-group difference of 0.2 ± 0.2 units (P = .3) was observed. Clarithromycin did not improve lung function or airway inflammation but did improve airway hyperresponsiveness, increasing the methacholine PC(20) by 1.2 ± 0.5 doubling doses (P = .02) in the study population.

At baseline, mean ± SD total daily ICS doses were 680 ± 414 μg/d in new starts, 642 ± 431 μg/d in established users, and 548 ± 382 μg/d in non-omalizumab patients. From baseline through year 2, total ICS dose decreased in 65% of new starts (mean ± SD change, -393 ± 504 μg/d), 57% of established users (-287 ± 492 μg/d), and 54% of non-omalizumab patients (-232 ± 431 μg/d). At baseline, SABA use for new starts, established users, and non-omalizumab patients was 1.9, 1.3, and 1.4 puffs/d, respectively. At year 2, SABA use decreased in 65% of new starts, 55% of established users, and 54% of non-omalizumab patients. At year 2, LTM dose decreased in 52% of new starts, 44% of established users, and 40% of non-omalizumab patients.

A retrospective cohort using pharmacy and medical claims was analysed to determine whether the differences in efficacy of various inhaled corticosteroids demonstrated in clinical trials lead to differences in costs of care observed in clinical practice. Subjects that had an ICD-9 (493.XX) code for asthma and a new pharmacy claim for inhaled fluticasone propionate 44 mcg (FP), beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP), triamcinolone acetonide (TAA), budesonide (BUD) or flunisolide (FLU) were identified and followed for 12 months. Annual asthma care charges (pharmacy and medical) over the 12-month observation period were significantly (P < 0.03) higher in patients treated with BDPTAA, BUD and FLU compared to FP, 24%, 27%, 34% and 45% respectively In addition, patients treated with BDPTAA, and FLU were associated with significantly (P < 0.005) higher total healthcare (asthma + non-asthma) charges compared to patients on FP, 53%, 46% and 39% respectively Asthma care and total healthcare charges remained lower for FP after including FP110 mcg and excluding patients who were extreme cost outliers (+/- 2 SD from the mean) in a univariate sensitivity analysis. This analysis supports recent randomized control trials that FP offers a superior efficacy profile at lower asthma care as well as total healthcare charges compared to other inhaled corticosteroids.

Nasal and oral corticosteroid therapy is the ultimate treatment for sinonasal polyposis. Although there are numerous clinical studies regarding the factors associated with the formation of nasal polyposis, there is not enough literature on how these factors are influenced by steroid treatment. Twenty-one patients that had no prior medical therapy for nasal polyposis or had received medical therapy at least 6 months earlier were included in the study. Patients were treated with oral and nasal corticosteroid therapy. Nasal polyp biopsies were taken before and after medical treatment and immunohistochemical staining for cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) were applied to the specimens. In this study, we tried to demonstrate the effects of corticosteroid therapy on nasal polyposis tissue immunohistochemically. There was no change at immunohistochemical expression level of COX-2; however, the decline of immunohistochemical expression levels of VEGF and iNOS was statistically significant. Short-term steroid therapy does not affect COX-2 level of the nasal polyposis tissue, but has an influence on iNOS and VEGF levels. Our findings were harmonious with those of the previous studies of the literature. Further studies are needed to demonstrate the long-term effects with a larger patient group.
These data indicate that fluticasone propionate aerosol is an effective and well-tolerated treatment for asthma and significantly improves pulmonary function within days of initiation of treatment in patients whose asthma is inadequately controlled with as-needed beta-agonists.

Young's modulus of FP crystals produced using different anti-solvents was determined using nanoindentation. Physicochemical and surface interfacial properties via the cohesive-adhesive balance (CAB) approach to colloid probe atomic force microscopy (AFM) of air-jet micronised FP crystals were investigated. These data were correlated to in vitro aerosolization performance of binary and combination DPI formulations containing salmeterol xinafoate (SX).
