In response to Dr Garay and Dr Cutrera’s questions, there are no
knemometry studies in preschool children on the the systemic activity of
systemic steroids in asthma exacerbations. The two steroids were compared
in similar nominal dose, as a compromise between a more potent steroid
(FP) versus a more efficient device (metalspacer).
There are no knemometry data on FP200 in young children.
It is an interesting and helpful article indeed.
I wonder why the authors compared 400 ug. fluticasone vs 400 ug budesonide

fluticasone in asthmatic infants o toddler?
Interesting results showing the systemic effects in children using
inhaled corticosteroids but I want to know if you have matching or
comparison data with children on systemic corticosteroids in asthmatic
