Abstract This study evaluated the effect of inhalation of steroids on lung permeability in patients with asthma by measuring the clearance of Tc-99m DTPA aerosol from the alveolar to vascular space. Twenty patients with asthma were studied in the supine position with a gamma camera and the clearance half time (T 1/2) was calculated. The base line lung permeability study was performed before treatment with inhalation of 100 micrograms beclomethasone dipropionate four times daily for 1 week, then the study was repeated. After treatment with inhalation of steroid, there was a change in T 1/2 from 76.4 +/- 37.4 minutes to 86.6 +/- 48.2 minutes (P = 0.08). This preliminary study suggests that lung permeability is not altered by inhaled steroid therapy.
