ICS: Randomised placebo controlled trial of inhaled corticosteroids for treatment of acute and chronic cough in children

 

Overview

The primary aim of this research program is to determine if, in children with acute and chronic cough, a short (14 day) course of inhaled corticosteroids will reduce cough severity, compared to placebo (standard care).

A secondary objective is to compare lung function tests carried out at baseline and at completion of medication, showing responses to inhaled corticosteroids in children with chronic and acute cough for the following:

The project will be run by the Menzies School of Health Research with funding by Queensland Children Medical Research Institute program grant. The research will be in collaboration with the Children’s Health Queensland Hospital, Mater Children’s Hospital, Brisbane and the Prince of Wales Hospital, Hong Kong.
