  Purpose

A non-interventional study to explore actual asthma control status in real-life environment and to observe the efficacy after stepped-up to Symbicort SMART or various identical regimens.

The study will be implemented by screening asthmatic patients from respiratory clinics to identify those not optimally controlled and required stepping up the controllers to initiate, or to titrate dose of, ICS/LABA including Symbicort.
