The purpose of this study was to compare the relative beneficial and systemic effects in a dose-response relationship for 2 ICSs.


A clinical model is needed to compare inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) with respect to efficacy.


30 asthmatic individuals 18 to 55 years of age. This was a feasibility study, not a comparative trial, therefore the sample size calculation was based on an appropriate sample size for estimating the common variance with some level of precision.


High-dose ICS therapy did not significantly increase the efficacy of measures that were evaluated but it did increase the systemic effect measure, overnight cortisol secretion.
