Although food sensitizations in Saudi children with eosinophilic esophagitis are common, the allergy tests had limited predictive value for the response to dietary elimination.

Starting within 24 hours of age, ventilated preterm infants (gestation < 32 weeks, birthweight < 1.5 kg) with respiratory distress syndrome were given a 14 day course (two puffs, 12 hourly) of either fluticasone propionate (250 microg/puff) (group 1, n=27) or placebo (group 2, n=26) with a metered dose inhaler-spacer device. Response to treatment was assessed by the rate of successful extubation by days 7 and 14 of age, changes in respiratory system mechanics, death, occurrence of chronic lung disease, and other neonatal complications.

Results indicate that receipt of BDP-HFA, compared with receipt of FP, is associated with a decreased probability of ER visits or asthma-related ER visits and higher odds of reaching a medical possession ratio threshold of 50% or 75%. Receipt of BDP-HFA was also associated with lower total drug costs and lower total medical costs.

Here we aimed to determine in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study whether therapeutic doses of an INCS preparation, i.e., nasal fluticasone propionate, have effects on boosts of allergen-specific IgE following nasal allergen exposure.

Study 1 (12 patients per treatment group; MF DPI at 200 microg bid, 400 microg qd, 800 microg qd, or 1,200 microg qd). Study 2 (16 patients per treatment group; MF DPI at 400 microg bid or 800 microg bid, or oral prednisone at 10 mg qd). Study 3 (16 patients per treatment group; MF MDI at 400 microg bid or 800 microg bid, or fluticasone propionate [FP] at 880 microg bid by MDI).

Inhaled corticosteroids are the most widely used treatment for asthma, a disease characterised by both functional and immunopathological abnormalities. This study investigated the relative effects of inhaled corticosteroids on these two features of asthma over time.

Airway inflammation and symptoms often persist in asthma patients despite treatment with inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) and long-acting beta2-agonists (LABA). It is hypothesized that the leukotriene receptor antagonist montelukast, treating a pathway of inflammation distinct from that of ICS, might confer additional benefit.

Once daily dosing of dry powder FP 200 microg is an effective and convenient alternative for children whose asthma is controlled with a more frequent dosing regimen of inhaled corticosteroids.

This study evaluated the effects of fluticasone cream 0.05% on the hypothalamopituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis in patients with extensive psoriasis or eczema.
A novel method is described that compares the in vitro drug delivery characteristics of different dry powder inhalers (DPIs) based on the power supplied by the air flow. Power is defined as the rate at which work is done by the air flow and is equal to the product of pressure gradient and air flow rate through the inhaler. Tests were conducted to compare the emitted dose and fine particle fraction of the total dose (FPFTD) of the Diskus, Diskhaler, and a proprietary powder dispersion device (PDD) containing fluticasone propionate/lactose powder blends. Three power levels were selected: 1, 2, and 3 W, representing a range of inspiratory efforts. The Diskus and PDD were independent of power, delivering consistent doses and fine particle fractions over the range of powers evaluated. Diskhaler was dependent on power, the emitted dose and FPFTD significantly decreasing at the lower power level (1W) (p < 0.005). Diskus and Diskhaler are trademarks of the Glaxo Wellcome group of companies.

Fluticasone propionate aqueous nasal spray 200 micrograms bid and beclomethasone dipropionate aqueous nasal spray 200 micrograms bid are effective in treating the symptoms of nasal polyps, with some evidence that fluticasone propionate aqueous nasal spray has a faster onset of action and is tolerated at least as well as beclomethasone dipropionate aqueous nasal spray at the same dose.

The rational choice of an inhalation device is a cornerstone in the effective management of asthma and COPD. In this publication, we describe the development of a new system, the Inhalation Manager, which, for the first time, offers the possibility to assess the entire inhalation maneuver of patients using original devices under everyday conditions. So far the Inhalation Manager allows the measurement of inspiratory maneuvers of patients through placebo inhalation devices of the most common breath-actuated CFC-free inhalers in the market for the three main glucocorticosteroids Budesonide [Turbohaler (TH), dry powder inhaler (DPI)], Beclomethasone dipropionate [Autohaler (AH), breath-actuated pressurized metered dose inhaler (pMDI)], and Fluticasone propionate [Diskus (DI), DPI] by means of a pneumotachometer. In addition, it allows allocation of the individual maneuver to the expected drug delivery values (mass output and particle size distribution) of these three devices. In a field trial, the inhalation technique of 628 (TH), 794 (AH), and 795 (DI) patients, respectively, was tested in 72 pulmonologist practices with the Inhalation Manager. For patients in the 18-59-year-old group, the Inhalation Manager detected the following percentages needing improvement: 1.5% for the Autohaler device, 16.7% for the Diskus, and 38.9% for the Turbohaler. In the 60-99-year-old group, percentages needing improvement were 1.5%, 31.5%, and 66.1% for the Autohaler, Diskus, and Turbohaler, respectively. Therefore, the Inhalation Manager could become an essential tool in asthma management by finding the most suitable inhaler for an individual patient and by training the optimal inhalation technique.
