Effective Asthma Management: Current Guidelines and Treatment Options

The 2002 update of the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program’s Expert Panel Report 2 presented evidence-based recommendations for long-term management of asthma. These recommendations reaffirm the value of low to medium doses of inhaled corticosteroids as the foundation of modern asthma therapy. This supplement presents comparative clinical data demonstrating the value of inhaled corticosteroids, as well as descriptions of two successful asthma management programs in two large MCOs.
