ASYMPTOMATIC is –a study to find out how best to use inhaled steroids for children with mild asthma.
Children who are aged between 6-16 will be invited to participate in this study via letter, please click here to read the participant information sheet.
The aim of the ASYMPTOMATIC trial is to find out the best way to use inhaled corticosteroids (preventer inhaler) in children with mild asthma.
At the moment, children in the UK are advised to take their corticosteroid inhaler every day.
Although this approach appears to help prevent asthma attacks, it may not be needed in all children with mild asthma.
They could perhaps use a corticosteroid inhaler only on days when they have asthma symptoms, such as cough, wheeze, or shortness of breath.
This trial will measure if the number of asthma attacks is different between children who take their corticosteroid inhaler everyday (the “daily” group) and those who take it only when they have symptoms (the “symptom-driven group)”.
