Abstract Background The Japan Asthma Control Survey (JACS) questionnaire, developed as a tool for measuring asthma control levels in Japanese asthma patients, was previously tested for its reliability and validity. However, many of the patients enrolled in the original validation study had mild asthma; thus a re-evaluation including severe cases was required to calculate more reliable cut-off values. Methods Pooled analysis of data from the original validation study and the subsequent medication guidance study including adult patients with severe asthma was conducted to calculate the JACS questionnaire cut-off values and to assess their sensitivity and specificity for identifying “well-controlled”, “not well-controlled”, and “poorly controlled” asthma as described in the Asthma Prevention and Management Guideline 2015

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
