Quick follow-up to Asthma (with Strongyloides)

This is the 20 y/o woman with bronchospasm and cough after her missionary trips. She has finished her course of Albendazole and has been on Asmanex (mometasone). She is now assymptomatic, her lungs are completely clear and her FEV1 increased from 2.29L(76%) to 3.30L(110%) and her ratio increased from 80% to 87%. We are weaning her Asmanex off and her repeat stool O&P were negative.
