Implications of ICS particle size on the management of routine care patients with a mixed asthma-COPD phenotype

Hypothesis

  • The mechanisms by which high BMI and GERD impair asthma control could involve increased distal airway inflammation
  • Differential effect of EF and standard-size ICS may help exploring this involvement of small airways.

Objectives

  • Evaluate the comparative effectiveness of EF and NEF ICS in asthma patients ± GERD ± overweight/obesity
  • Determine the relationship between overweight/obesity and GERD as determinants of poor asthma control
