Using an asthma control questionnaire and administrative data to predict health-care utilization.
TLDR
Results show that the ATAQ control index and administrative data are jointly useful for predicting future health-care utilization and should assist the practicing clinician and organizations interested in population-based asthma disease management. Expand
Clinical effectiveness of inhaled corticosteroids versus montelukast in children with asthma: prescription patterns and patient adherence as key factors
TLDR
The prescription of ICS monotherapy did not significantly reduce rescue oral corticosteroids or acute care visits and was associated with a higher rate of hospital admission for asthma and rescue β2-agonist use. Expand
Assessment of Asthma Severity and Asthma Control in Children
TLDR
A system of using asthma severity for disease assessment in the absence of treatment and using asthma-control assessment to guide management decisions while a child is receiving treatment appears to be a promising approach to tailor treatment to improve care and outcomes for children with asthma. Expand
Ocular and nasal allergy symptom burden in America: the Allergies, Immunotherapy, and RhinoconjunctivitiS (AIRS) surveys.
TLDR
Ocular and nasal allergy symptoms substantially affected patients' lives and were comparable in their impact. Expand
Network meta-analysis shows commercialized subcutaneous and sublingual grass products have comparable efficacy.
TLDR
Comparisons for grass pollen immunotherapy products commercialized in at least 1 country indicate comparable reductions in allergic rhinoconjunctivitis symptoms and supplemental medication use for SLIT tablets and SCIT in the first pollen season. Expand
Associations of patient outcomes with level of asthma control.
TLDR
Patients with partly and uncontrolled asthma defined by international guidelines reported use of significantly more health care resources and greater limitations of their daily activities compared with patients whose asthma was well controlled. Expand
Diagnosis and treatment of nasal and ocular allergies: the Allergies, Immunotherapy, and RhinoconjunctivitiS (AIRS) surveys.
TLDR
Most patients took nonprescription medications for their allergy symptoms or were treated by general practitioners, who did not use allergy testing when diagnosing ARC. Expand
Patterns of asthma-related health care resource use in children treated with montelukast or fluticasone*
TLDR
Subgroup analyses suggest a differential effect of age on the relationship between treatment and asthma-related resource use, with children 2–5 years observed to have less resource use while on montelukast. Expand
Relationship of asthma control to asthma exacerbations using surrogate markers within a managed care database.
TLDR
The number of SABA canisters dispensed is most strongly related to improved asthma outcomes, followed by the unweighted medication ratio; dispensing of any controller is least related. Expand
Prospective Study on the Relationship of Obesity to Asthma Impairment and Risk.
TLDR
Elevated BMI, particularly obesity, is associated with subsequent poor asthma control, especially in the risk domain (exacerbations). Expand
