Abstract

Background A high serum immunoglobulin (Ig)E level is considered a potent predictor for the development of asthma and IEE is targeted for treatment of asthma. Although inhaled corticosteroids are well established in the treatment of asthma, the effects of inhaled corticosteroids on serum IEE levelsin asthma remain uncertain. Methods We therefore examined asthma symptoms, concentrations of total serum IgE and specific IgE antibodies to selected allergens, blood eosinophil counts and lung functions before and 3 months after treatment with either inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP; 800 mu g/day) (n = 7) or inhaled beta(2)-agonists alone (n = 7) in patients with atopic asthma in a randomized, double-blind, parallel-group controlled trial. Results Inhaled BDP significantly improved asthma symptom scores and forced expiratory volume in Is, and decreased blood eosinophil counts, total serum IgE levels and specific IgE antibodies to house dust mite and cedar. Decreases in total serum IgE significantly correlated with an improvement in asthma symptom scores. In contrast, none of parameters altered in patients with atopic asthma treated with inhaled beta(2)-agonists alone. Conclusions Inhaled corticosteroids may improve the subsequent clinical course of atopic asthma in association with a reduction of serum IgE levels.
