ABSTRACT
This article comments on a clinical study in which daily corticosteroids were not better than as-needed corticosteroids in mild persistent asthma. The use of as-needed inhaled corticosteroids (ICSs) eventually may be shown to be an alternative in the treatment of mild persistent asthma, but because of limited data, such use is not ready for standard practice. The study suggests that daily ICS should be the first treatment offered to patients with mild persistent asthma because secondary endpoints slightly favored this intervention.
