Maintenance treatment for adults with chronic asthma

Which treatment for asthma is most likely to reduce the risk of exacerbations in adults? In a linked paper, Loymans and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.g3009) seek to address this question using network meta-analysis.1 The authors identified and compared 16 different treatment approaches, using evidence from randomised trials of at least 24 weeks’ duration. The primary outcome was severe exacerbations (leading to admission to hospital, a visit to the emergency department, or a course of oral steroids).

Clinical trials: units of randomisation

Researchers evaluated the efficacy of a short course of oral prednisolone for acute asthma in children of school age. A randomised double blind placebo controlled crossover trial study design was used. The intervention was parent initiated treatment with the corticosteroid prednisolone (1 mg/kg/day) or placebo when an episode of acute asthma occurred. For each episode, treatment with prednisolone or placebo was chosen at random. Participants were 230 children aged 5-12 years with a history of recurrent episodes of acute asthma. Each child could contribute a maximum of eight episodes of acute asthma to the data collection over a three year study period.1
