The 3MG trial: magnesium in asthma

3mgTrial

The 3MG trial compared intravenous and nebulised magnesium sulphate against placebo in addition to standard treatment in moderate to severe asthma. Notably, the trial excluded life-threatening asthma—the group we are most likely to be using magnesium in.

At the end of the day (and trial), they found no benefit with either IV or nebulised magnesium for the primary endpoints of admission to hospital within 7 days and breathlessness.
