Comparison of adverse events associated with different spacers used with non-extrafine beclometasone dipropionate for asthma, Published online: 08 February 2019; doi:10.1038/s41533-019-0115-0A study of spacer devices for use with asthma inhalers shows no significant difference in the incidence of side-effects between licensed and unlicensed spacers. Spacers offer a way of improving the dose inhaled, particularly in children and those adults who struggle to use asthma inhalers correctly. However, non-extrafine beclomethasone dipropionate (like Clenil Modulite) inhalers are frequently co-prescribed with unlicensed Aerochambe...

Prospective observational study validating the German version of the Control of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma Test (CARAT10)
Prospective observational study validating the German version of the Control of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma Test (CARAT10), Published online: 04 December 2018; doi:10.1038/s41533-018-0112-8A newly-translated German version of a two-factor asthma test shows promise as a reliable tool for assessing disease control. Asthma frequently co-exists with allergic rhinitis (AR), a condition in which allergies cause irritation and inflammation of the nasal passages. To verify asthma control under AR, a Portuguese team developed the Control of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma Test (CARAT10). Now, Christoph Ulrich Werner at the Technical ...
