What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

1361. Controlled trial of hyposensitisation to Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus in children with asthma. (PubMed)

Controlled trial of hyposensitisation to Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus in children with asthma. Hyposensitisation with Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus tyrosine absorbate in asthmatic children with bronchial sensitivity to D. pteronyssinus was effective in a 12-month double-blind controlled clinical trial. Compared with controls, treated children used a smaller quantity of drugs while maintaining clinical and lung function improvements. In most children who improved there was no change

1362. Comparison of cromoglycate (cromolyn) and theophylline in controlling symptoms of chronic asthma. A collaborative study. (PubMed)

Comparison of cromoglycate (cromolyn) and theophylline in controlling symptoms of chronic asthma. A collaborative study. 28 children with chronic asthma (15 in Denver and 13 in London) completed a 12 wk double-blind trial of treatment with sodium cromoglycate (cromolyn sodium), theophylline, and a combination of both. The three regimens were administered, each for 4 wk, in random sequence as part of a collaborative investigation of the relative efficacy of the two antiasthmatic agents

1363. Cromolyn therapy in patients with bronchial asthma. Effect on inhalation challenge with allergen, histamine, and methacholine. (PubMed)

Cromolyn therapy in patients with bronchial asthma. Effect on inhalation challenge with allergen, histamine, and methacholine. The action mechanism of cromolyn sodium and its effect on bronchial sensitivity to allergen, methacholine chloride, and histamine inhalations were studied in 17 asthmatic subjects. Cromolyn capsules or placebo was administered by an inhaler (Spinhaler) randomly on alternate days 30 minutes before aerosol challenge. Cromolyn and placebo did not differ in their effect

1364. Anti-mite measurements in mite-sensitive adult asthma. A controlled trial. (PubMed)

Anti-mite measurements in mite-sensitive adult asthma. A controlled trial. A cross-over controlled trial has been conducted among 32 adult patients with mite-sensitive asthma. The bedclothes and pillows of each subject were laundered and vacuum-cleaned and a plastic cover applied to the mattress for six weeks in an attempt to reduce exposure to mites. No improvement in daily peak-flow reading or drug usage was found in comparison with a control period.

1366. Inhaled corticosteroids compared with oral prednisone in patients starting long-term corticosteroid therapy for asthma. A controlled trial by the British Thoracic and Tuberculosis Association. (PubMed)

Inhaled corticosteroids compared with oral prednisone in patients starting long-term corticosteroid therapy for asthma. A controlled trial by the British Thoracic and Tuberculosis Association. Inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate and inhaled betamethasone valerate have been compared with oral prednisone in the treatment of 75 patients with asthma who were starting long-term corticosteroids for the first time. Both of the inhaled corticosteroids controlled asthma as well as did oral prednisone (...) as those receiving sodium cromoglycate. Both inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate and inhaled betamethasone valerate have advantages over oral prednisone in the maintenance treatment of patients with asthma, but in the management of exacerbations systemic corticosteroids will usually be needed as a supplement to inhaled therapy.

1367. Exercise-induced asthma. Pharmacological assessment of single drugs and drug combinations. (PubMed)

Exercise-induced asthma. Pharmacological assessment of single drugs and drug combinations. The relative effectiveness of ephedrine, theophylline, and hydroxyzine hydrochloride and their combinations was studied in a two-part investigation of 16 youths who has asthma and exercise-induced asthma. The beneficial and adverse effects of the drugs in the control of asthma were studied in the first part of the investigation. Both theophylline and ephedrine were judged superior to placebo when given (...) alone. When combined they were somewhat more effective than either agent alone, although adverse effects precluded their use in almost half of the subjects. The addition of hydroxyzine diminished the side effects sufficiently to make the combination acceptable to four subjects who refused to take ephedrine/theophylline. In the second part of the study, the relief of exercise-induced asthma was evaluated. Ephedrine had no effect, hydroxyzine had a weak effect on hastening recovery, but theophylline
