Short Description:

The aim of the study was to compare the effectiveness of representative small-particle inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) with that of standard size particle ICS for children initiating or stepping up ICS therapy for asthma (analysis 1) and to compare the effectiveness of ICS dose step-up using small-particle ICS with adding longacting b2-agonist (LABA) to the ICS (analysis 2).
