Influenza Vaccination Rates Up; Goal Not Met in Asthmatics
Source: Medscape Medical News Headlines [2013.12.06]
From 2010 to 2011, 50% of people with asthma received the influenza vaccine, which is an increase from 36% just 5 years earlier but still below the goal of 80% in children and 90% in adults.

Nebulizers May Not Deliver Full Drug Dose to Kids With Asthma
Source: Yahoo Health News [2013.12.06]
FRIDAY, Dec. 6, 2013 (HealthDay News) -- Nebulizers -- devices that transform liquid asthma medications into an easy-to-inhale mist -- aren't providing people with asthma a full dose of medication, according to a small new study. Researchers found...

LABA-Only Asthma Rx Tied to More Hospital Stays (CME/CE)
Source: MedPage Today Allergy & Immunology [2013.11.30]
(MedPage Today) -- The risk of hospitalization was higher among asthmatics who refilled only long-acting beta-agonist prescriptions instead of following one of two other medication routes, or even using no medication at all, researchers reported.
Published Studies Related to Tilade (Nedocromil Inhalation)
Long-term budesonide or nedocromil treatment, once discontinued, does not alter the course of mild to moderate asthma in children and adolescents. [2009.05]
OBJECTIVES: To determine whether long-term, continuous use of inhaled anti-inflammatory medications affects asthma outcomes in children with mild to moderate asthma after use is discontinued... CONCLUSIONS: Clinically meaningful improvements in the control of asthma and in airway responsiveness achieved during continuous treatment with inhaled corticosteroids do not persist after continuous treatment is discontinued.
AMP challenge induces a decrease in FE(NO) in asthmatic subjects modulated by nedocromil. [2006.12]
BACKGROUND: Allergen challenge results in an immediate reduction in exhaled nitric oxide (FE(NO)) followed by a long-term increase. To study mast cell activation in relation to nitric oxide (NO), the study investigated the effect of inhaled adenosine monophosphate (AMP) as a mast cell activator and mast cell stabilizer - nedocromil sodium - on FE(NO). The NO synthase (NOS) iso-enzyme involved was studied by the NOS inhibitor aminoguanidine... CONCLUSIONS: The AMP challenge caused a reduction in FE(NO) as a result of prior treatment with nedocromil. Aminoguanidine abolished the nedocromil-induced protection on the late reduction in FE(NO), but not on AMP PC(20). Inducible NOS was implicated in the late FE(NO) decrease after the AMP challenge.
Efficacy and safety of mometasone furoate vs nedocromil sodium as prophylactic treatment for moderate/severe seasonal allergic rhinitis. [2006.05]
BACKGROUND: The preventive use of medications has been proposed to be effective in the treatment of seasonal rhinitis. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of mometasone furoate and nedocromil sodium nasal sprays as prophylactic treatment for moderate to severe seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR). PATIENTS: Sixty-one patients were recruited from 3 referral allergy centers. Inclusion criteria were history of SAR for 2 years or longer, sensitization to relevant local pollen (grasses, Parietaria, and olive), and age older than 12 years... CONCLUSIONS: Prophylactic administration of mometasone furoate before the pollen season is safe and may lead to improved control of SAR compared with the use of nedocromil sodium.
Dissociation in the effect of nedocromil on mannitol-induced cough or bronchoconstriction in asthmatic subjects. [2005.09]
CONCLUSIONS: Nedocromil strongly attenuates mannitol-induced bronchoconstriction but has a negligible effect on mannitol-provoked cough. Therefore, these responses seem to have different pathways in asthma. Recording of both provoked coughs and induced bronchoconstriction during mannitol challenge may provide supplementary information about a patient's disease.
Comparative effect of triamcinolone, nedocromil and montelukast on asthma control in children: A randomized pragmatic study. [2004.08]
Asthma severity can be judged by measurements of symptoms, lung function, and medication requirements. The objective was to compare the effect of a 4-wk monotherapy with low-dose triamcinolone, montelukast and nedocromil on asthma control, lung function, eosinophil blood count, and bronchial hyper-reactivity in children with mild to moderate asthma allergic to dust mite...
