DEFINE: Trying to find out whether using the FeNO test during asthma reviews can help improve care for asthma patients.

Background and Study Aims

The DEFINE study will help health care professionals in GP surgeries provide a more personalised approach to managing patients’ asthma by using FeNO to guide decisions about their treatment.

Around 5.4 million people in the UK receive treatment for asthma. However, although more and more asthma medications are being prescribed each year, numbers of serious asthma attacks are not going down.

To help prevent serious asthma attacks, we need to make sure the right treatments are given to the right people in the right amounts.
