AbstractIncreasing worldwide asthma prevalence and mortality has led to greater advocacy of inhaled agents, especially steroids. To determine whether corresponding drug usage trends had ensued locally, wholesale data (expressed as defined daily doses (DDDs)/1000 inhabitants/day) were compared for inclusive periods 1984-1986 and 1992-1994. Whereas absolute usage of anti-asthmatics increased by 79%, proportional inhaled usage increased markedly, especially of steroids (571%) and in hospitals. An odds ratio trend analysis revealed asthma mortality from 1992 onward had declined, particularly in males (p < 0.001). In Hong Kong, despite increasing asthma prevalence, more intensive use of anti-asthmatic drugs (especially inhaled steroids) was associated with declining asthma mortality.
