BACKGROUND: Handheld inhalers are used to deliver treatment for COPD. Incorrect usage leads to suboptimal disease control. Complex treatment regimens and use of multiple inhalers may reduce patient compliance. The Anoro Ellipta™ dry powder inhaler (DPI) simultaneously delivers umeclidinium bromide (UMEC) and vilanterol (VI) without coformulation being required. AIM: To assess the correct usage and ease of use of the Ellipta™ DPI administering UMEC/VI and to compare patient preference for Ellipta™ with the HandiHaler(®) through exploratory analyses of patient and observer questionnaires in five Phase III studies...

Several new fixed-dose combination bronchodilators have been launched in the world, and 3 different types are now available in Japan. Assessing their efficacy relative to each other has not been performed yet. In the present manuscript, characteristics of glycopyrronium/indacaterol, umeclidinium/vilanterol and tiotropium/olodaterol were reviewed. In particular, changes in trough and peak forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), St George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) total scores, and transitional dyspnea index (TDI) focal scores were reviewed in these bronchodilators...

INTRODUCTION: Currently the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has limited effectiveness and there is a need to develop new drugs. International guidelines recommend the use of long-acting bronchodilators (β2 agonists and anti-cholinergics/muscarinics), inhaled steroids and associations between these drugs in the maintenance treatment of moderate-to-severe COPD. AREA COVERED: Vilanterol trifenate is a new once-daily highly selective β2-agonist available in USA and Europe in association with umeclidinium bromide (a long-acting anti-muscarnic agent) and fluticasone furoate (an inhaled corticosteroid) for the once-daily maintenance treatment of COPD...

Testing the new combined bronchodilator Anoro Ellipta in different clinical trials gives to its high clinical efficacy and safety in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The drug contains the molecules of sustained-release selective β2-adrenergic receptor agonist (vilanterol) and a muscarinic cholinergic receptor antagonist (umeclidinium bromide). The bronchodilating mechanisms of umeclidinium bromide are in the competitive inhibition of the binding of acetylcholine with muscarinic acetylcholine receptors of airway smooth muscles whereas in those of vilanterol are in that with the stimulation of intracellular adenylate cyclase...

BACKGROUND: The cost-effectiveness of umeclidinium bromide-vilanterol (UMEC/VI) versus tiotropium monotherapy in the UK was assessed using a UMEC/VI treatment-specific economic model based on a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) disease-progression model. METHODS: The model was implemented as a linked-equation model to estimate COPD progression and associated health service costs, and its impact on quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) and survival. Statistical risk equations for clinical endpoints and resource use were derived from the ECLIPSE and TORCH studies, respectively...

Inhaled bronchodilator therapy is a mainstay of treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Despite the number and types of treatments available, the control of symptoms and exacerbations remains suboptimal, and adherence to, and persistence with, inhaled therapy is generally poor. Results from clinical studies suggest that dual bronchodilator therapy with long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonists (LAMAs) and long-acting β2 adrenergic receptor agonists (LABAs) may provide additional benefit over LAMA or LABA monotherapy without additive effects on safety and tolerability...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common disease among the elderly that could be prevented by smoking cessation. As it is characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible, bronchodilator therapy is the first choice of treatment. Symptomatic COPD patients with or without risk for future exacerbations have a strong indication for the permanent use of long- and ultralong-acting β2-agonists and/or long-acting muscarinic antagonists. Combining bronchodilators is an effective approach, as they demonstrate synergic action at a cellular level and have additive clinical benefits and fewer adverse events compared with increased doses of the monocomponents...

BACKGROUND: COPD guidelines recommend the combined use of inhaled long-acting β2-agonists (LABAs) and long-acting muscarinic antagonists (LAMAs) if symptoms are not improved by a single agent. This systematic review tested the hypothesis that the bronchodilator effect of the LABA/LAMA combination, umeclidinium (UMEC)/vilanterol (VIL), would translate into better outcomes without incurring increased adverse events (AEs). METHODS: This was a systematic review of randomized, placebo-controlled or crossover trials (> 4 weeks) involving UMEC/VIL compared with its monocomponents, tiotropium, or fluticasone/salmeterol...

The recent Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) guidelines consider symptoms and exacerbation history in addition to the degree of airflow obstruction for classifying patients. The improvement of symptoms is principally provided by bronchodilators, using β2 agonists and antimuscarinic agents. Aclidinium bromide is a novel long-acting antimuscarinic agent licensed for use in patients with COPD. Novel fixed-dose combinations that are either licensed or in their late phase of development include vilanterol/umeclidinium, indacaterol/glycopyrronium, olodaterol/tiotropium and formoterol/aclidinium...

Medication adherence among patients with chronic diseases, such as COPD, may be suboptimal, and many factors contribute to this poor adherence. One major factor is the frequency of medication dosing. Once-daily dosing has been shown to be an important variable in medication adherence in chronic diseases, such as COPD. New inhalers that only require once-daily dosing are becoming more widely available. Combination once-daily inhalers that combine any two of the following three agents are now available: 1) a long-acting muscarinic antagonist; 2) a long acting beta2 agonist; and 3) an inhaled corticosteroid...

INTRODUCTION: Umeclidinium bromide (UM) with vilanterol (VI) is the first once-daily long-acting muscarinic antagonist/long-acting β2 agonist (LAMA/LABA) combination approved for use in the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the USA. Prior to this, only combinations of short-acting bronchodilators and short-acting muscarinic antagonists were available in the USA as a single inhaler and they required frequent dosing. LAMA or LABA therapy is the recommended first choice for moderate-to-very severe COPD with combination therapy added if monotherapy fails to control patients' symptoms...

Inhaled bronchodilators, including long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonists (LAMA) and long-acting β2-adrenoreceptor agonists (LABA), are the mainstay of pharmacological treatment of stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Among approved LAMA, tiotropium bromide, glycopyrronium bromide, and umeclidinium bromide are administered once daily, whereas aclidinium bromide is administered every 12 h. New LAMA are under development for COPD. Among the approved LABA, indacaterol has a 24 h duration of action, whereas salmeterol and formoterol require twice-daily administration...

A solid scientific rationale and an increasing body of clinical evidence fully support the use of an antimuscarinic agent combined with a β-agonist in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In this article, we focus on the development of an inhaled fixed dose combination (FDC) of two 24-h bronchodilators, umeclidinium bromide and vilanterol (UMEC/VI) (ANORO). Several pivotal clinical trials have documented the impact of this combination on lung function and other outcome measures such as quality of life, dyspnea, rescue medication use and exercise capacity, with no clinically meaningful treatment-related changes in vital signs or clinical laboratory parameters...

Umeclidinium is a novel inhaled long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonist (LAMA) approved for treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It provides a bronchodilation of at least 24 h, is well tolerated and has a safe profile. In this article, we describe its pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic characteristics. Moreover, we present a meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials carried out in COPD patients, in which the change of forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) induced by umeclidinium has been compared with that elicited by placebo or the active compound tiotropium...
