People (n=21) with inadequately controlled asthma in a supervised exercise program for 12 weeks followed by self-motivated exercise for 12 weeks had "clinically significant" 0.5-point lower scores on the Asthma Control Questionnaire, as well as improved aerobic fitness, compared to 16 nonrandomized matched controls. Astonishingly, no serious trial testing exercise in asthma control has ever been done, according to these authors. ERJ 2011;37:318-323.
