1181. Inhaled corticosteroids compared with oral prednisone in patients starting long-term corticosteroid therapy for asthma. A controlled trial by the British Thoracic and Tuberculosis Association. (Abstract)

Inhaled corticosteroids compared with oral prednisone in patients starting long-term corticosteroid therapy for asthma. A controlled trial by the British Thoracic and Tuberculosis Association. Inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate and inhaled betamethasone valerate have been compared with oral prednisone in the treatment of 75 patients with asthma who were starting long-term corticosteroids for the first time. Both of the inhaled corticosteroids controlled asthma as well as did oral prednisone (...) as those receiving sodium cromoglycate. Both inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate and inhaled betamethasone valerate have advantages over oral prednisone in the maintenance treatment of patients with asthma, but in the management of exacerbations systemic corticosteroids will usually be needed as a supplement to inhaled therapy.

1182. Exercise-induced asthma. Pharmacological assessment of single drugs and drug combinations. (Abstract)

Exercise-induced asthma. Pharmacological assessment of single drugs and drug combinations. The relative effectiveness of ephedrine, theophylline, and hydroxyzine hydrochloride and their combinations was studied in a two-part investigation of 16 youths who has asthma and exercise-induced asthma. The beneficial and adverse effects of the drugs in the control of asthma were studied in the first part of the investigation. Both theophylline and ephedrine were judged superior to placebo when given (...) alone. When combined they were somewhat more effective than either agent alone, although adverse effects precluded their use in almost half of the subjects. The addition of hydroxyzine diminished the side effects sufficiently to make the combination acceptable to four subjects who refused to take ephedrine/theophylline. In the second part of the study, the relief of exercise-induced asthma was evaluated. Ephedrine had no effect, hydroxyzine had a weak effect on hastening recovery, but theophylline
