Airway inflammation can be demonstrated in mildly asthmatic patients who are not treated with inhaled steroids. Current guidelines recommend that inhaled steroids should be introduced in mild asthmatics who use an inhaled beta2-agonist more than once daily. It was postulated that inhaled steroids can have anti-inflammatory effects in patients with even milder disease. The effect of 4 weeks of treatment with budesonide (800 microg twice daily by Turbohaler) was studied in 10 steroid-naive mildly… CONTINUE READING
