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.

To determine the ability of montelukast, a leukotriene receptor antagonist, to allow tapering of inhaled corticosteroids in clinically stable asthmatic patients.Double blind, randomised, placebo controlled, parallel group study.

24. Montelukast, a leukotriene-receptor antagonist, for the treatment of mild asthma and exercise-induced bronchoconstriction. (Abstract)

Montelukast, a leukotriene-receptor antagonist, for the treatment of mild asthma and exercise-induced bronchoconstriction. Patients with mild asthma frequently have only exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, a symptom of inadequate control of asthma. We evaluated the ability of montelukast, a leukotriene-receptor antagonist, to protect such patients against exercise-induced bronchoconstriction.We randomly assigned 110 patients (age, 15 to 45 years) with mild asthma and a decrease in the forced (...) expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) of at least 20 percent after exercise on two occasions during a placebo run-in period to receive 10 mg of montelukast (54 patients) or placebo (56 patients) once daily at bedtime for 12 weeks in a double-blind study. Treatment was followed by a two-week, single-blind washout period during which all patients received placebo. Exercise challenges were performed at base line; 20 to 24 hours after dosing at weeks 4, 8, and 12; and at the end of the washout period

25. Montelukast for chronic asthma in 6- to 14-year-old children: a randomized, double-blind trial. Pediatric Montelukast Study Group. (Abstract)

Montelukast for chronic asthma in 6- to 14-year-old children: a randomized, double-blind trial. Pediatric Montelukast Study Group. Leukotrienes are important mediators of asthma by causing bronchoconstriction, mucous secretion, and increased vascular permeability. Studies using compounds that block leukotrienes have demonstrated improvement in asthma control in adults and adolescents, but children younger than 12 years, for whom asthma is the most common chronic disease, have not been (...) studied.To determine the clinical effect of montelukast, a leukotriene receptor antagonist, in 6- to 14-year-old children with asthma.Eight-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blind study.Forty-seven outpatient centers at private practices and academic medical centers in the United States and Canada.A total of 336 children with forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) between 50% to 85% of the predicted value, at least 15% reversibility after inhaled beta-agonist administration, a minimal predefined
