    The cornerstone of pharmacological management of asthma in childhood is inhaled corticosteroids. These drugs are intended for long term treatment and, consequently, compliance is a major issue. Once-daily administration of maintenance medication would simplify treatment and it is likely that it...

    Background: Ciclesonide is an inhaled corticosteroid administered by a metered dose inhaler (MDI) to treat bronchial asthma. After inhalation, the inactive ciclesonide is converted by esterases in the airways to active metabolite desisobutyryl-ciclesonide (des-CIC). Aim: To compare the...

    Inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are the cornerstone of asthma management both in adults and in children. There are some adverse effects related to the use of these drugs in all ages. Those adverse effects can be local or systemic. From the paediatric point of view, the main worry relates to the...

    Inhaled corticosteroids are effective and safe treatments for childhood asthma in standard doses, yet at high dosages they may be associated with adverse events and suboptimal outcomes; add-on therapy is, therefore, recommended to minimise their use. We quantified prescribing of high-dose...

    Inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are established as first-line therapy for persistent asthma in children. Fluticasone propionate (FP) has been used because it has equivalent efficacy when used at half-dose of older-generation ICS and has a comparable safety profile. However, concerns persist about...
