Pollock M, Sinha IP, Hartling L, Rowe BH, Schreiber S, Fernandes RM. Randomised controlled trials found no advantage in regular versus as-needed SABA [4, 5] and, by the late 1990s, most guidelines recommended as-needed rather than regular SABA. In formulating the Step 1 recommendations, high importance was given to prevention of severe exacerbations, and to avoidance of contradictions in asthma messaging between Step 1 and Step 2. [Long-acting beta 2-agonists in addition to inhaled corticosteroids in children and adults with chronic asthma. There is no contradiction in employing a background population-level risk reduction strategy as part of personalised asthma management, as shown in figure 1. Conflict of interest: M.L.

When ICS–formoterol was used as-needed and pre-exercise, protection against exercise-induced bronchoconstriction was obtained, of similar magnitude to that obtained with regular ICS plus as-needed and pre-exercise SABA [27].

Evidence to date for as-needed ICS–formoterol is based on studies with low dose combination budesonide–formoterol, but low dose BDP–formoterol could potentially be used in the same way, given its efficacy in maintenance and reliever therapy [28]. Studies of airway hyperresponsiveness, and of the relationship between symptoms, lung function and use of ICS–formoterol reliever are needed, in order to understand the mechanism by which exacerbations are reduced.

Are asthma medications and management related to deaths from asthma? For this purpose, the combination of ICS–formoterol was preferred over ICS–SABA as it was more widely available, and because of adverse outcomes with regular use of ICS–SABA in the study by Papi et al. In 2014, GINA recommended that SABA-only treatment should be restricted to patients with symptoms twice a month or less and with no risk factors for exacerbations. The authors are members of the GINA Science Committee and/or the GINA Board. Eur Respir J.  |  The need for such studies was supported by the findings of the UK National Review of Asthma Deaths in 2014, that 9% of asthma deaths were in patients being treated with SABA alone (suggesting that their physician had considered they had mild asthma), and 39% were associated with excess prescriptions for SABA [23]. However, before choosing this option, the clinician should consider whether a patient is likely to be adherent with daily ICS, or default to SABA-only treatment with its attendant risks. In April 2019, the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) (box 1) published new recommendations that might be considered the most fundamental change in asthma management in 30 years. Patient reliance on SABA was further reinforced by its prominent use in the trusted environments of emergency department and hospital care. The changes recommended in GINA 2019 represent a major reorientation in how we treat the largest group of asthma patients.

Head-to-head studies of as-needed ICS–formoterol and ICS–SABA are needed, to compare efficacy and safety. The new recommendations follow a decade-long programme of work by GINA, prompted by concerns about the risks and consequences of the long-standing approach of commencing asthma … Conflict of interest: L-P.

Evidence is considered and recommendations are framed, not as discrete questions, but in the context of their relationship to the overall goals of treatment, underlying disease processes, feasibility for implementation in clinical practice, evidence about human behaviour (of health professionals and of patients/carers), and variation in populations, health systems and medication access in different countries.

Global Initiative for Asthma. Large long-term studies would be needed to identify patients for whom it would be safe (in terms of risk of severe exacerbations or death) to treat without any ICS. Epub 2020 Dec 1. Print 2019 Nov. Although the public health implications of these major changes in GINA recommendations remain to be studied, their potential is great, both in economically developed countries and in low income countries where access to ICS-containing medications, particularly as maintenance therapy, is limited or non-existent. These are also the countries in which the burden of potentially preventable asthma hospitalisations and deaths are greatest and in which the cost-effectiveness of the new approach might be best seen.

These include two open-label randomised controlled trials, representing the way that patients would use as-needed ICS–formoterol in real life [34, 35]; both of these studies include type 2 biomarkers at baseline and during treatment. GINA also provides additional as-needed controller options for Step 2 strategies that may reduce exacerbations, albeit with limited evidence. In addition, there was a paucity of evidence for feasible alternatives.  |  Step 1 is for patients with symptoms less than twice a month.

Even in resource-rich countries, despite the best efforts of health professionals, adherence to maintenance treatment with ICS in mild asthma remains a distant hope. 54 ( 5 ):1901583. doi: 10.1186/s12931-019-1159-y with limited safety data HK, JM. 7 ):993-8. doi: 10.1183/13993003.01583-2019 that each country and jurisdiction must determine at a level.
