Work Plan

The Small Airways Study Group (SASG), led by Prof. Omar Usmani (Imperial Hospital, London), was first established 7 years ago to explore the implications of targeting the small airways on the management of obstructive lung disease. The initial focus of the group was extra-fine hydrofluoroalkane beclomethasone propionate (EF HFABDP), but the scope has since been expanded to consider the treatment of small airways, in general, and all small particle respiratory therapies. With its current focus on academic studies, and the important role that real-life studies play in answering the questions at the heart of the group, the SASG has now moved to sit under REG as one of our key working groups.
