What is the Study?

Approximately 1 in 8 Kiwis take medication for asthma. New Zealand also has a higher prevalence of asthma compared to other developed countries. The standard treatment for asthma recommended by the Asthma + Respiratory Foundation NZ was changed in 2020 based on NZ-led research that showed a combination of a preventer and a reliever medication was much more effective in reducing asthma symptoms than using a reliever alone.

In this study, we are researching an experimental combination rescue inhaler. The medications fluticasone propionate (Flixotide) and Salbutamol (Ventolin) are already approved for use in New Zealand as individual inhaler medications. This research study will test how effective fluticasone propionate and salbutamol are in preventing asthma attacks when combined into one experimental inhaler. The research study will also look if the use of the experimental research study inhaler reduces the need for additional steroid treatment for asthma sufferers. Around 2200 people are taking part around the world.

Participants will continue using their usual (regular) maintenance asthma medications but would be required to exclusively use the research study drug inhaler as their reliever inhaler.

What Is Clinical Research?

Clinical research is the process of developing potential treatments for diseases. Medicines must pass through clinical trials to ensure their safety and effectiveness.
