Combination Therapy for Pediatric Asthma Patients

Trial Objective

Combination Therapy for Pediatric Asthma PatientsOur researchers are trying to determine if a combination of fluticasone furoate (FF) and vilanterol (VI) is more effective than FF alone in improving lung function and symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and breathlessness in pediatric asthma patients.

FF (which is approved for treatment of asthma) is typically used to treat asthma in adults. This study is adding the use of VI (which is not currently approved for the treatment of asthma). The study also will determine the safety of the combination of FF and VI. Some participants will receive FF and VI, some others will receive FF alone. There is no placebo for this study.
