BACKGROUND Tobramycin nebuliser solution (TNS) is indicated for maintenance therapy in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) infections. Adherence to recommended therapy in CF has always been a challenge and new generation nebulisers are increasingly used "off label" to reduce the time required for inhalation, potentially(More)
BACKGROUND Asthma guidelines recommend prescription of inhaled corticosteroids at a reduced dosage in children compared to older patients in order to minimize the systemic exposure and risk of unwanted side effects. In children, pressurized metered dose inhalers (pMDI) are recommended in combination with a valved holding chamber (VHC) to overcome the(More)
AIM Prescription of inhaled corticosteroids to children with asthma is recommended at half the nominal dose of adults in order to reduce the risk of systemic side effects. However, there is a lack of pharmacokinetic trials supporting such dose reduction regimens. Therefore, we aimed to compare the systemic exposure to the active ingredients of a fixed dose(More)
AIM The aim was to investigate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of an extrafine pressurized metered-dose inhaler (pMDI) fixed combination of beclometasone dipropionate (BDP)/formoterol fumarate (FF) in adolescent and adult asthma. METHODS This was a three-way crossover study, on 30 asthmatic adolescents receiving BDP/FF pMDI with or without a(More)
