GSK2245035 belongs to a novel class of agonist drugs targeted at toll like receptors (TLR). T-helper cell 2 (Th2) driven inflammation is a key patho-physiological mechanism in allergic asthma. The clinical manifestations and inflammatory pathways of allergic asthma are sensitive to corticosteroid therapy. However, GSK2245035 reduces Th2-driven airway inflammation and thereby controls asthma symptoms. This study aims to determine whether intranasal GSK2245035 maintains biological and clinical control of allergic asthma using 'tapering of ICS' study design. This study will assess the efficacy and safety of GSK2245035 in subjects with allergic asthma treated with ICS. This will be a randomised, double-blind (sponsor open), placebo-controlled, parallel group, 8-week study treatment period. The study will consist of a screening period of up to approximately 5 weeks, blinded treatment period of 8 weeks, followed by a follow-up period of 7 weeks. A total of 60 subjects will be included in this study and duration of time for each subject will therefore be 141 days including screening and study ICS dose adjustment period.

Subjects who completed either D5180C00007 or D5180C00009 will be offered the opportunity to consent for the Multicentre, Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo Controlled, Parallel Group, Phase 3, Safety Extension Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of Tezepelumab in Adults and Adolescents with Severe Uncontrolled Asthma
This is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study to study whether there are potential benefits of consuming ginger by individuals with asthma.
The health benefits of physical activity (PA) are well documented and include improving in cardiovascular, obesity, mental health and all-cause mortality. Although higher levels of activity in patients with asthma are also associated with better outcomes, patients still avoid physical activity due to concern about exacerbating their asthma symptoms by the exercise induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), sustaining a vicious cycle of inactivity and worse asthma control. Many studies have reported the benefits of supervised exercise training on several asthma outcomes, such as exacerbations, asthma control, cardiopulmonary fitness, airway inflammation and psychosocial symptoms; however, the translation of the improvements in the exercise capacity into increments in PA levels is less evident and still controversial. Therefore, the hypothesis of this study is that behavioural interventions using strategies based on well-established psychosocial models are effective in increasing physical activity levels and decrease sedentary behaviour in adults with asthma, which will be associated with improvements in the asthma control.
We will study the use of a home-based spirometer (VitalFlo) that connects to a smartphone app in teenagers with persistent asthma to determine if clinically significant changes in lung function detected by the spirometer are associated with patient-reported asthma symptoms.
Study of the palatability and acceptability of dexamethasone oral tablets crushed and placed in apple sauce or pudding in comparison with the IV solution mixed with sugar syrup and given orally. It is hypothesized that dexamethasone tablets crushed and administered in apple sauce or pudding will be more palatable and acceptable for pediatric patients receiving dexamethasone for an acute asthma exacerbation or croup.
This randomized study compares operative techniques in chronic rhinosinusitis with polyposis (CRSwNP) surgery. It aims to evaluate outcomes in asthma and CRSwNP, safety and costs. The investigators want to see if patients with certain clinical and/or genetic predispositions will benefit from extended surgery. They also aim to find biomarkers for detection and management models for of severe airway inflammation and to further develop markers for progressive disease forms.
A trial to investigate if a single dose of the oral corticosteroid, Dexamethasone is as effective in treating exacerbations of asthma in children as 3 days of treatment with another oral corticosteroid, Prednisolone
In asthma, the type and importance of the inflammatory response in the airways has allows identification of different phenotypes. Of these, one of the most common is eosinophilic asthma, based on induced sputum differential cell count. Patients with severe asthma and an eosinophilic asthma phenotype have different pathophysiological characteristics than those seen in patients with with mild asthma. However, few studies have compared patients with eosinophilic phenotype according to the severity of asthma. In addition, the stability of the phenotype based on the sputum results has been criticized. This study aims to describe the characteristics of patients with eosinophilic asthma phenotype according to the severity of asthma and determine the stability of the phenotype.
The Pulmonary Specialist-Health Coach Consultation (PuSHCon) study examines the implemention of health coach-assisted consultations to improve access to specialist care and implementation of specialist recommendations for patients with COPD, asthma, and asthma COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) for low-income and vulnerable patients seen at public health clinics. A limited number of patients (50) from two clinics will be enrolled in the pilot study; 25 patients from one clinic will receive a pulmonary consultation under usual care and 25 patients from the other clinic will receive the PuSHCon model.
