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.

Long-acting beta2-agonist monotherapy vs continued therapy with inhaled corticosteroids in patients with persistent asthma: a randomized controlled trial. Long-acting beta(2)-agonists are prescribed for patients with persistent asthma and are sometimes used without inhaled corticosteroids (ICSs). No evidence exists, however, to support their use as monotherapy in adults with persistent asthma.To examine the effectiveness of salmeterol xinafoate, a long-acting beta(2)-agonist, as replacement

466. Corticosteroids for induction of labour. (Abstract)

Corticosteroids for induction of labour. The role of corticosteroids in the process of labour is not well understood. Animal studies have shown the importance of cortisol secretion by the fetal adrenal gland in initiating labour in sheep. Infusion of glucocorticosteroids into the fetus has also shown to induce premature labour in sheep. Some assumptions have been proposed regarding the mode of action of corticosteroids, including both a paracrine and autocrine action, following (...) the identification of glucocorticoid receptors on human amnion. Given these studies it has been postulated that corticosteroids given intraamniotically will promote the induction of labour. This is one of a series of reviews of methods of cervical ripening and labour induction using standardised methodology.To determine the effects of corticosteroids for third trimester cervical ripening or induction of labour in comparison with other methods of cervical priming or induction of labour.The Cochrane Pregnancy

468. Addition of anti-leukotriene agents to inhaled corticosteroids for chronic asthma. (Abstract)

Addition of anti-leukotriene agents to inhaled corticosteroids for chronic asthma. Anti-leukotriene (AL) agents are being considered as "add-on" therapy to inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), in chronic asthma.To examine the safety and efficacy of daily AL plus ICS compared to ICS alone, and determine the corticosteroid-sparing effect of AL when added to ICS in chronic asthma.We searched Medline, Embase, Cinahl (all up to 2001), reference lists of review articles and trials, contacted international (...) of ICS was 300-2000 mcg beclomethasone-equivalent. In symptomatic adults, AL (at 2-4 times licensed dose) combined with ICS reduced the number of patients with exacerbations that required systemic corticosteroids, compared to ICS alone [Relative Risk (RR) = 0.34; 95% Confidence Interval (CI) 0.13, 0.88]. This equates to 20 patients (95% CI 1,100 patients) treated to prevent one needing systemic corticosteroids. There was no difference in side effects. No trials tested the efficacy of licensed doses

469. Non-corticosteroid treatment for nephrotic syndrome in children. (Abstract)

Non-corticosteroid treatment for nephrotic syndrome in children. Eighty to ninety per cent children with steroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome (SSNS) have one or more relapses. About half of these children relapse frequently and are at risk of the adverse effects of corticosteroids. Non-corticosteroid immunosuppressive agents are used to prolong periods of remission in children, who relapse frequently. However these non-corticosteroid agents also have significant potential adverse effects (...) . Currently there is no consensus as to the most appropriate second line agent in children who are steroid sensitive, but who continue to relapse. In this systematic review of randomised controlled trials (RCTs), the benefits and harms of these immunosuppressive agents are evaluated.To evaluate the benefits and harms of non-corticosteroid immunosuppressive agents in relapsing SSNS in children.Published and unpublished randomised controlled trials were identified from the Cochrane Controlled Trials

In addition, there is evidence for a dose dependent effect on fetal growth and persistence of immature lung architecture. Evidence from human studies on both the short and long- term adverse effects of repeat doses of corticosteroids is contradictory and therefore inconclusive. The available human data come from inadequately controlled observational and retrospective studies, some of which suggest (...) and safety are needed. • In light of the possible risks, the design of randomized clinical trials should minimize the exposure of mothers and fetuses while protecting the integrity of the research design. These trials should assess: • Clinically important neonatal morbidities, such as respiratory distress syndrome, chronic lung disease, and brain injury. • Clinically important maternal morbidities, such as infection and adrenal suppression. • The effects of repeat courses of corticosteroids on patterns
