Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Spirometry was performed to measure FEV1, which is the amount of air the participant is able to exhale in 1 second. Normal values for FEV1 in healthy people depend on age and gender, but values between 80% and 120% of the normal value is considered good. Increased FEV1 indicates improvement in asthma control.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Morning (AM) and Evening (PM) Peak Expiratory Flow Rate (PEFR) [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants were to record their daily AM and PM PEFR values in a diary. PEFR can be measured using a peak flow meter that was given to the participant. Normal readings are based on a person's gender, age, and height. A reading of 80 to 100% of the usual or normal peak flow readings indicate that the asthma is under good control. Increased PEFR indicates improvement in asthma control.

  • Number of Items in the Asthma Quality of Life (QOL) Questionnaire and the General QOL Questionnaire That Had a Significant (Positive) Change From Baseline to Endpoint [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Questionnaires consisted of items such as General Health Condition (excellent/very good/good/regular/bad), Difficulty to Breathe (always/almost always/considerable part of time/partially/few amount of time/almost never/never), General Asthma Limitations (completely/a lot/enough to be considered/regular/a few/almost nothing/nothing), etc...

    The questionnaires together consisted of 44 questions, each question with categorical variables as response. A Friedman test was performed to determine the significance of change in samples from baseline to endpoint, for each question.


  • Morning and Evening Asthma Symptoms Based on a 3 Point Scale (4 Individual Symptoms) and 24 Points (Summed). [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The symptoms of cough, chest tightness, wheezing, and shortness of breath were each to be graded on a scale of 0 to 3 with 0 being no symptoms present and 3 being very marked symptoms which was disturbing most of the time. Scores were to have been recorded at 12AM and 12PM for a total of 24 points summed.

  • Number of Nocturnal Awakenings [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of Puffs of Salbutamol Used Daily [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Investigator's Assessment of Response to Therapy Based on a 5-point Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The investigator will assess the subject's response to therapy by interviewing the subject and comparing the current level of symptoms from baseline. A scale of 1 to 5 will be used with 1 being much improved (AM and PM symptom severety/frequency improve >75% from baseline) and 5 being much worse (AM and PM symptom severity/frequency got more than 75% worse from baseline).

  • Patient's Assessment of Response to Therapy Based on a 5-point Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A scale of 1 to 5 will be used with 1 being much improved (AM and PM symptom severety/frequency improve >75% from baseline) and 5 being much worse (AM and PM symptom severity/frequency got more than 75% worse from baseline).

  • Number of Participants With One or More Mild, Moderate or Severe Asthma Exacerbations [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Exacerbation severity will be characterized based on exacerbation classification from the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) workshop 2005 and the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) asthma guidelines.

  • Number of Participants Who Adhered to Treatment [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The compliance was measured via medication consumption. In the end of the last week of study (Week 12), a review of the remaining study drug in the initial prescribed Twisthaler device was done. A Twisthaler reading of 0 indicates no study drug left and full compliance.

  • Number of Participants With Use of Rescue Medication in Each Episode [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
