Addition of anti-leukotriene agents to inhaled corticosteroids for adults and adolescents with persistent asthma

  • Protocol
  • Intervention



This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows:

To assess the profile of daily oral anti-leukotrienes used in conjunction with inhaled corticosteroids compared to the same, or an increased, or a tapering dose of inhaled corticosteroids in the management of adolescents and adults with persistent asthma. In addition, to determine whether any characteristics of patients or treatments influence the magnitude of response attributable to anti-leukotrienes.
