Abstract

A double-blind cross-over trial was carried out to compare the effect of identical placebo with that of salbutamol inhalers used 30 min before inhalation of 100 microgram of beclomethasone dipropionate (B.D.P.) in 18 chronic asthmatics over two consecutive 4-week periods. The salbutamol and B.D.P. combination resulted in a significant improvement in the peak expiratory flow-rate and F.E.V.1, significantly less use of the rescue inhaler, and better control.
