In 1997, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute released the Second Expert Panel Report on the Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma as a follow-up to the first report issued in 1991. Implementation of the recommendations from this report could have a potentially huge impact on care and treatment of asthma in the United States. Even though the Guidelines are expansive, there are some areas related to the pharmacologic component that warrant further discussion and clarification. These are: (1) safety and efficacy of available asthma medications, (2) clinical efficacy comparisons of inhaled corticosteroids, (3) comparative risks among inhaled corticosteroids, and (4) expectations of different delivery systems used with inhaled corticosteroids.
