Evaluating as-needed inhaled corticosteroid strategies in asthma: Expanding the benefits to mild asthma
Expert Rev Respir Med. 2023 Aug 14. doi: 10.1080/17476348.2023.2247973. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Adherence to regular anti-inflammatory treatment is commonly low, and short-acting β2 agonist (SABA) overuse is common in patients with asthma, leading to an increased risk of asthma-related adverse events.AREAS COVERED: Given the pivotal role of inflammation in asthma, multiple as-needed inhaled corticosteroid (ICS)-containing therapies have been developed, leading to a reduction in asthma exacerbations and improvement in symptom control. Currently, as-needed ICS/formoterol is one of the most commonly avail...

Personalised management and supporting individuals to live with their asthma in a primary care setting
Expert Rev Respir Med. 2023 Aug 3:1-20. doi: 10.1080/17476348.2023.2241357. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Complementing recognition of biomedical phenotypes, a primary care approach to asthma care recognizes diversity of disease, health beliefs, and lifestyle at a population and individual level.AREAS COVERED: We review six aspects of personalized care particularly pertinent to primary care management of asthma: personalizing support for individuals living with asthma; targeting asthma care within populations; managing phenotypes of wheezy pre-school children; personalizing management to the individual; meeti...
