The participants (5 - 13 years old) were randomly assigned to receive 400 [micro]g of budesonide, 16 mg nedocromil or placebo daily for 4 - 6 years.
In that previous study, the subjects -- then between the ages of 5 and 13 years -- had been randomly assigned to receive a steroid medication called budesonide, a non-steroid medication called nedocromil or a placebo pill for 4 to 6 years.
They were divided into three groups: one received twice-daily budesonide, an inhaled corticosteroid medication; a second group received nedocromil, an inhaled non-steroid medication; and a third group received a placebo.
