Study information

Scientific title

Single high dose of inhaled steroid on exercise induced laryngeal narrowing and bronchial asthma in children: a double-blind randomised cross-over placebo controlled trial

Acronym

IJsbaan-studie

Study hypothesis

Exercise-induced asthma can be reduced with a single high dose of corticosteroids. There is however a large variety of response within patient groups. In clinical practice children report a wheeze, and inspiratory stridor, a sign of extra-thoracic airway obstruction. With the use of full flow-volume loops an analysis can be made of intrathoracic (forced expiratory volume in one second [FEV1]) and extra-thoracic (mid-inspiratory flow [MIF50]) airway obstruction. The forced oscillation technique can be used to accurately evaluate reactance and resistance of intra-thoracic airways.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a single high dose of fluticasone propionate with the expiratory flow loop and the forced oscillation technique, and evaluate the drop in MIF50 after exercise.

Ethics approval

The local medical ethics committee (Medisch Etidsche Toetsingcommissie [METC]) Medisch Spectrum Twente (MST) Enschede approved on the 11th January 2005 (ref: P04-017). Date of ABR signing: 27th April 2004, Version: Juli 2002.

Condition

Exercise induced asthma

Intervention

Four hours after inhalation of a single dose of either placebo or 1 mg fluticasone propionate children will perform an exercise challenge in cold, dry air. After 6 - 14 days children will cross-over in medication and will perform another exercise provocation challenge.

Intervention type

Drug

Phase

Phase III

Drug names

Fluticasone propionate

Primary outcome measures

The difference in drop of FEV1 after exercise between fluticasone propionate and placebo, measured before and 1, 3, 6, 8, 12, 15, 20, 25 and 30 minutes after exercise.

All measurements were repeated 10 minutes after administration of 200 μg of salbutamol (a reliever drug).

Secondary outcome measures

1. The change in increase of resistance after exercise between fluticasone propionate and placebo, measured before and at 5, 14 and 24 minutes after exercise
2. The change in decrease of reactance after exercise between fluticasone propionate and placebo, measured before and at 5, 14 and 24 minutes after exercise
3. The drop in MIF50 after exercise, measured before and 1, 3, 6, 8, 12, 15, 20, 25 and 30 minutes after exercise

All measurements were repeated 10 minutes after administration of 200 μg of salbutamol (a reliever drug).
