AbstractBACKGROUND/AIM: A recent survey (REALISETM) has revealed that patients in Europe perceive their asthma to be well-controlled despite the presence of symptoms. We report data from a similar survey of patients to assess if such discrepancy is seen in Asia. METHODS: Online surveys were completed by patients (aged 18-50 years, X2 prescriptions for asthma in the past two years), recruited via validated consumer panels from 8 countries in Asia. RESULTS: A total of 2,467 patients participated, split across the following geographies: Mainland China (30%), Hong Kong (8%), Indonesia (7%), Korea (20%), Malaysia (6%), Philippines (6%), Singapore (8%), and Taiwan (12%). Mean age of respondents was 34 years, with relatively equal proportion of males (54%) and females (46%). While 89% considered their asthma to be well-controlled, only 18% were classified as such according to GINA guidelines, the rest being partly controlled (32%) and uncontrolled (50%). In the past 7 days before completing the survey, 35% used their ...
