Traduction en anglais : Compliance and asthma : A Delphi method investigation on compliance in asthmatic patients.
Compliance of asthma patients to a prescribed course of treatment is of both medical and economic importance, as the progression of the illness can be halted or at least slowed down by a consistent treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs.
The use of fixed combination products which contain both an anti-inflammatory active ingredient (e.g. sodium cromoglycate) and a short-acting beta-2-agonist can lead to improve a compliance and thus slow down the progression.
This was established with the help of a survey by experts carried out according to the Delphi Method, separating adult asthmatics from children with asthma.
