Asthma Exacerbation, Treatment Failure Prevention During Step-Down Therapy

Adults and adolescents with asthma who are more likely to develop treatment failure and disease exacerbations, and thus may require closer monitoring during step-down therapy, include those with reduced pulmonary function, a history of exacerbations, and early-onset asthma, according to the results of an analysis published in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society .

Investigators used data from the 56-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel 3-arm trial, Long-Acting Beta Agonist Step Down Study (LASST; ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01437995 ). LASST participants were ≥12 years of age and had physician-diagnosed asthma. All were enrolled from December 2011 through May 2014 and were taking a moderate dose combination of inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta agonists.

The investigators sought to identify the baseline characteristics associated with treatment failure and exacerbations of asthma during maintenance and guideline-based step-down therapy.

Can mild asthma in an adult go away completely?

When I was 18, I had mild asthma symptoms (shortness of breath and wheezing ) for a period of about 2-3 weeks, during which I used an inhaler. Same thing happened when I was 20. I am now 24, and I havent had any symptoms since. How likely is it going

well, you may never get the symptoms like that again, but it may come again tomorrow. the thing is, when you dont have asthma for along time, that means that your asthma it "sleeping", but can come back again.
