Résumé : The effects of regular aspirin ingestion after aspirin-desensitization were evaluated in 10 aspirin-intolerant asthmatic patients. Chronic aspirin ingestion was not observed to be associated with either a significant improvement of mean FEV1 values or with a decrease in daily corticosteroid requirements. This study suggests that regular aspirin ingestion in aspirin-intolerant asthmatic patients does not induce a measurable improvement of the respiratory status.
