Brief description Asthma is a health priority for Australia where better and new treatment approaches are needed. This project tests the benefit of a common antibiotic for use in asthma. We propose to conduct a large-scale, multicentre, double-blind, placebo controlled study comparing the efficacy (and safety) of the addition of oral low dose azithromycin to maintenance asthma therapy on the incidence of asthma exacerbations and clinical asthma status in participants with asthma.
