We aimed to evaluate the additional effect of beclometasone dipropionate/formoterol (BDP/F) hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) pressurized metered dose inhaler (pMDI) (BDP/F-HFA 100/6 μg pMDI) on airway inflammation and functional parameters in asthma cases, who were optimally controlled by maintenance therapy. Methods: Ninety-five controlled asthmatic patients were included. They were grouped as Group 1 [budesonide/formoterol 320/9 μg dry powder inhaler (DPI)] and Group 2 (fluticasone/salmeterol 500/50 μg DPI) according to the combination they used. Then Group 3 was established by random selection from these two groups, and BDP/F-HFA 100/6 μg pMDI treatment was prescribed. All patients were evaluated in the beginning of the study and were re-evaluated at the end of a 3-week treatment period by spirometry, exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) levels, and small airway functional indices, namely, Sacin and Scond values. Results: There was no significant statistical difference in terms of age, height, weight, disease duration, symptoms, and spirometric parameters between the groups. There was a significant decrease in eNO levels in asthma cases who were on BDP/F-HFA therapy (p=0.001). A significant improvement in Sacin values at the end of the treatment period was observed in cases treated with BDP/F-HFA (p=0.001), indicating that inflammation was suppressed in peripheral airways. Conclusions: These results emphasize that asthma treatment has mainly focused on the strategy to keep the disease under control; maintaining optimal functional level might be underestimated. BDP/F-HFA may have an additional favorable effect on the peripheral airway inflammation in the controlled asthma.
