Abstract

Methacholine airway reactivity was studied in seven asthmatic patients before and at the end of 4 mo of beclomethasone dipropionate therapy, as well as in a control group. There was no statistically significant change in reactivity in either group, suggesting that a change in airway cholinergic receptor activity is not part of the mechanism of action of corticosteroids in asthma.
