ELEVATE Study

OPRI conducted two separate, 2-year pragmatic trials designed to evaluate the effectiveness of leukotriene-receptor antagonist (LTRA) for primary care patients receiving asthma therapy under real-world conditions. The study compared LTRA with either an inhaled glucocorticoid for first-line asthma-controller therapy or a long-acting beta2-agonist (LABA) as add-on therapy in patients already receiving inhaled glucocorticoid therapy, and recruited over 300 patients from 53 primary care practices in the United Kingdom.
The study found that at 2 months, LTRA was equivalent to an inhaled glucocorticoid as first-line controller therapy and to LABA as add-on therapy for diverse primary care patients.
This work has now been published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
