As-Needed Symbicort Beats Rescue Albuterol for Mild Asthma

"We have completely failed to sell patients with mild asthma on the idea of taking regular twice-daily medication whether they need it or not [for symptoms]," he said, adding that the paper shows that starting therapy with a steroid and long-acting beta agonist therapy taken as needed works well without the use of maintenance medication.

The 52-week Novel START trial randomized 675 adults with mild intermittent and persistent asthma to one of three groups: Albuterol group: albuterol (100 μg delivered in two inhalations from a pressurized metered-dose inhaler as needed for asthma symptoms) Budesonide maintenance group: budesonide (200 μg, one inhalation through a Turbuhaler twice daily) plus as-needed albuterol Budesonide-formoterol group: 200 μg of budesonide and 6 μg of formoterol, one inhalation through a Turbuhaler as needed

Absolute rates of annual exacerbations per patient were 0.400 in the albuterol group, 0.175 in the budesonide maintenance group, and 0.195 in the budesonide-formoterol group. For the secondary endpoint of severe exacerbations, the 9 in the budesonide-formoterol group were significantly fewer than the 23 in the albuterol group (RR 0.40, 95% CI 0.18-0.86) and 21 in the budesonide maintenance group (RR 0.44, 95% CI 0.20-0.96).
