Inhaled Corticosteroids

Inhaled corticosteroids  These are used for their anti-inflammatory effects in asthma. They are very effective in asthma, but are of limited use in COPD.   Mechanism If you want lots of info on steroids, see the Cushing’s disease notes. In relation to asthma:

Leukotriene Antagonists

Leukotriene receptor antagonists These are given in oral tablet form and are used to treat severe chronic asthma. They are only ever used in conjunction with corticosteroids.   Mechanism They block the LTD4 receptor on smooth muscle, which normally responds to leukotriene activation. Thus by blocking this receptor they prevent bronchoconstriction.

Asthma: pathogenesis and novel drugs for treatment

Asthma affects almost 20 million people in the United States and more than 300 million people worldwide. Of these, 10-15% have severe asthma, which is refractory to commonly available drugs. New drugs are needed because those that are currently available cannot control symptoms and exacerbations in all patients and can cause adverse reactions. In the past 10 years, there have been substantial advances in the understanding of asthma genetics, airway biology, and immune cell signaling. These advances have led to the development of small molecule therapeutics and biologic agents that may improve asthma care in the future. Several new classes of asthma drugs—including ultra long acting β agonists and modulators of the interleukin 4 (IL-4), IL-5, IL-13, and IL-17 pathways—have been evaluated in randomized controlled trials. Other new drug classes—including dissociated corticosteroids, CXC chemokine receptor 2 antagonists, toll-like receptor 9 agonists, and tyrosine kinase inhibitors—remain in earlier phases of development. Despite some preliminary efficacy data, there is insufficient evidence to make strong recommendations about the use of these newer agents. Future research on the clinical efficacy of these biologic agents, the effect of newer agents on severe asthma in pediatric patients, and the biology of non-eosinophilic and corticosteroid resistant asthma is needed to reduce the morbidity of asthma worldwide.

Corticosteroids for the management of cancer pain in adults | Cochrane

Background: One of the most feared symptoms associated with cancer is pain. Opioids remain the mainstay of pain treatment but corticosteroids are often used at the same time, along with standard pain relievers. This review evaluates the clinical trial evidence up to 29 September 2014 to determine how effective corticosteroids are in treating cancer-related pain in adults and how well tolerated this treatment is for these patients.

Is it better to add long-acting muscarinic antagonists or long-acting beta2-agonists to inhaled corticosteroids for people with uncontrolled asthma? | Cochrane

Differences between long-acting muscarinic antagonists (LAMA) and long-acting beta2-agonists (LABA) are mostly small or uncertain, based on studies less than six months in duration. The current evidence is not strong enough to support using LAMA instead of LABA for people whose asthma is not controlled on inhaled corticosteroids.

What is the evidence for stopping long-acting beta2-agonists for adults with stable asthma using combination therapy? | Cochrane

Stopping long-acting beta2-agonists (LABA) for adults whose asthma is stable with LABA and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) treatment may increase the number of asthma attacks that require treatment with extra corticosteroids, but this remains uncertain. Stopping LABA may also slightly reduce quality of life and asthma control. We could not tell whether stopping LABA changed serious side effects or the likelihood of having to go to the hospital for an asthma attack.
