Budesonide, the active component of PULMICORT FLEXHALER is a corticosteroid designated chemically as (RS)-11β, 16α, 17,21-Tetrahydroxypregna-1,4-diene-3,20-dione cyclic 16,17-acetal with butyraldehyde.
PULMICORT FLEXHALER is indicated for the maintenance treatment of asthma as prophylactic therapy in adult and pediatric patients six years of age or older. It is also indicated for patients requiring oral corticosteroid therapy for asthma. Many of those patients may be able to reduce or eliminate their requirement for oral corticosteroids over time.
PULMICORT FLEXHALER is NOT indicated for the relief of acute bronchospasm.

Safety and Tolerability of High-Dose Budesonide/Formoterol via Turbuhaler(R) in Japanese Patients with Asthma: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Crossover, Active Comparator-Controlled, Phase III Study. [2012.01.01]
Background: The use of budesonide/formoterol as both maintenance and reliever therapy in asthma is recommended in many countries; however, there are limited data available for the Asian patient population. Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the short-term safety and tolerability of a fixed high-dose combination of the inhaled corticosteroid budesonide and the long-acting beta(2)-adrenoceptor agonist formoterol with that of the beta(2)-agonist terbutaline for acute symptom relief in Japanese adults with persistent asthma who were already receiving a combination of budesonide/formoterol maintenance therapy...

Clinical Trials Related to Pulmicort (Budesonide Inhalation)
Pulmicort Respules on Relapse Rates After Treatment in the ED [Withdrawn]
The purpose of this study is to see if the addition of budesonide to oral corticosteroids
will result in a decrease in relapse rates compared to oral corticosteroids alone in
children who are discharged from the ED after an asthma exacerbation. Secondly, that there
will be an improvement in lung function, a decrease in beta-2 agonist use and an improvement
in health-related quality of life compared to placebo.
Effect of Flovent Discus vs QVAR vs Pulmicort Flexhaler on Short Term Growth [Recruiting]
Children with mild persistent asthma that have asthma symptoms once or twice a week and use
a daily controller, while children with mild intermittent asthma rarely have asthma symptoms
and do not use a daily controller. Inhaled corticosteroids are the standard treatment for
mild peristent asthma. The purpose of this study is to measure children rate of growth
while on different inhaled corticosteroids.
Pulmicort Respules(Budesonide Inhalation Suspension) vs Singulair, Children [Completed]
A one year study comparing the safety and effectiveness of Pulmicort (0. 5mg strength given
once a day in the evening) with either 4 or 5mg strength SINGULAR (given once a day in the
evening) in children with asthma aged 2 to 8. If allocated to SINGULAR treatment, children
aged between 2 and 5 will receive 4mg strength SINGULAR and those aged between 6 and 8 will
receive 5mg strength SINGULAR.
