A twelve month study (Gaining Optimal Asthma ControL, GOAL), in 3416 adult and adolescent patients with persistent asthma, compared the safety and efficacy of Seretide versus inhaled corticosteroid (Fluticasone Propionate) alone to determine whether the goals of asthma management were achievable. Treatment was stepped up every 12 weeks until ** total control was achieved or the highest dose of study drug was reached. GOAL showed more patients treated with Seretide achieved asthma control than patients treated with ICS alone and this control was attained at a lower corticosteroid dose.
The number of players who have admitted using steroids in a confidential survey conducted by the NCAA since the 1980s has dropped from percent in 1989 to percent in 2003.  During the 2003 season, there were over 7,000 drug tests, with just 77 turning up as positive test results.  Scukanec claims that methods were used to get around the drug testing, whether it be avoiding the tests by using the drugs during the off-season, or flushing the drugs out of your system.

The Paceman’s expanded dimensions, increased utility, and sportier styling (versus the Countryman’s) add up to an expanded price tag that makes it the most expensive of all Minis. The base price of our Paceman S, including all-wheel drive, was $29,200. In addition to the automatic transmission, nav, and Carbon Black Gravity leather, our test car included a premium package (dual-pane sunroof, automatic climate control, $1250); 19-inch aluminum wheels ($1750); Harmon/Kardon premium audio ($750); a cold weather package (heated front seats, heated power-folding mirrors, $750); Starlight Blue paint ($500); keyless entry ($500); bixenon headlights ($500); a one-year satellite radio subscription ($250); and white turn-signal lights ($100).
