Adding the LAMA tiotropium Respimat inhaler to combination LABA/ICS inhaler may reduce the need for rescue oral steroids. A noticeable benefit on quality of life is unlikely, and we couldn't tell if it reduced hospital admissions, but adding tiotropium has some benefit on lung function, asthma control, and non-serious side effects.

Ivermectin versus benzimidazoles for treating Strongyloides stercoralis infection | Cochrane

Strongyloides stercoralis is a parasite that lives in the gut of infected people. The infection is not serious for most people, but it can be fatal in people with immune deficiency. People become infected when they come in contact with soil or water contaminated with infectious worms. The chronic infection usually causes skin rash, vomiting, diarrhoea, and constipation, and respiratory problems, such as asthma-like illness. This disease may be treated with ivermectin or albendazole or thiabendazole. We wanted to know if ivermectin was better or worse than the other alternative therapies.
