Asthma guidance welcomed

5th December 2007

Drug manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline has welcomed guidance issued by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) on chronic asthmas in children under 12 years old.

The guidance recommends combination treatments such as Seretide®* (salmeterol/fluticasone propionate) as an option for children, needing both an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) and a long-acting beta2 agonist (LABA) to control their asthma. The guidance gives healthcare professionals the freedom to choose between a combination treatment or separate devices for ICS. About one million children in the UK are known to have asthma.
