Classic & Established (Marketed)


The following areas are of particular interest to the review committee. These were last updated in May 2019.

• Understand burden of Allergic Rhinitis
• Allergic Rhinitis- Diagnosis and management
• Fluticasone Furoate nasal spray in Allergic Rhinitis management
• Role of sensory attributes in the management of Allergic Rhinitis- Use of intranasal corticosteroids
• Levocetirizine in management of Allergic Rhinitis and Urticaria
• Link between Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma- Impact of appropriate Allergic Rhinitis management on Asthma control

• Steroid-responsive dermatoses: Appropriate use of topical corticosteroids
• Androgenetic alopecia: Sexual dysfunction associated with 5ARI/alpha blocker therapy as a barrier to optimal treatment management in androgenetic alopecia
• Androgenetic alopecia: post hair-transplant treatment with dutasteride/5ARIs
• Acne: antibiotic resistance with antibiotic-containing fixed-dose combinations

Research proposals addressing barriers to optimal treatment management including exploration of real world clinical practice data and patient outcomes:
• 5ARI/alpha blocker combination vs alpha blocker monotherapy in BPH treatment paradigm - pros and cons of differential therapeutic approaches in moderate to severe LUTS/BPH
• Evaluation, management and monitoring of LUTS/BPH in driving optimal treatment outcomes in BPH patients
• Sexual dysfunction associated with 5ARI/alpha blocker therapy as a barrier to optimal treatment management in BPH
• Understanding risk of progression in BPH patients - role of urodynamic and mechanistic aspects

[Infectious Diseases]
• Proposals supporting appropriate antibiotic prescribing (dose, duration, PK/PD principles),
• Antibiotic stewardship,
• Strategies to minimise development of antimicrobial resistance in the community

(Products: Salmeterol plus fluticasone, fluticasone and salbutamol)

[Epidemiology, disease progression parameters and asthma management]
• What are the parameters indicating asthma disease progression (mild to moderate and beyond)?
• Studies that helps in characterisation of patients that progress vs those that do not progress

[Medicines (including comparators) e.g.]
• Effectiveness of ICS monotherapy in mild asthma
• Using registries or databases to track patients' journey through the health system to look at differences between ICS/ICS+SABA and other treatment regimens in asthma (including paediatrics and adults asthma)
• Innovative studies or models, to track patients' disease progression journey when initiated on various treatments in mild asthma (SABA, mono ICS or ICS/LABA as required)
• Studies to characterise inflammatory profile/phenotype of asthma exacerbations

[Adherence/ patient support programme]
• Studies linking improved adherence with improved outcomes in paediatric / adult asthma patients e.g. Interventions with Apps and other tools.
• Role of different types of inhalers in improving patient outcome

Although GSK are more likely to support studies aligned to our current areas of interest for supported studies, we are interested in supporting studies that are innovative and contribute to scientific knowledge relating to a product, a medical condition or advancing a technology.
