REVIEW
Nicholas J Gross, James F Donohue
A nebulized formulation of formoterol, Perforomist, 20 microg/2 ml, has been available since 2007 for the maintenance treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We review the safety and efficacy data obtained during its development. In a dose-finding study, formoterol inhalation solution (FFIS) was similar to the formoterol originator, Foradil 12 microg DPI (FA) in patients with COPD. In a 12-week efficacy study, FFIS manifested a rapid onset of action and FEV(1) peak, AUC(0-12), and trough levels similar to FA...

Formoterol fumarate is an effective treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients with moderate or greater severity of airflow obstruction. Published studies indicate that formoterol has a rapid onset of bronchodilation, which may enhance compliance, and sustained bronchodilation over 12 h, which produces a cumulative effect when inhaled twice daily. With long-term use, formoterol fumarate increases trough forced expiratory volume in 1 s and improves measures of hyperinflation, which correlate with relief of symptoms and a decreased need for additional short-acting bronchodilators as rescue treatment...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
E Rand Sutherland, Shari Brazinsky, Gregory Feldman, Joe McGinty, Latanya Tomlinson, Kimberly Denis-Mize
OBJECTIVE: Bronchodilator maintenance treatment improves pulmonary function and health-related quality of life in COPD patients. Pulmonary function and patient preference/satisfaction were compared before and after treatment with a short-acting ipratropium/albuterol combination and long-acting nebulized formoterol. METHODS: A randomized, open-label, crossover trial was conducted at 16 centers in the US. COPD subjects (n=109, 52.8% predicted FEV1) received nebulized formoterol fumarate inhalation solution (Perforomist**, FFIS 20g BID) or ipratropium and albuterol combined in a metered-dose inhaler (MDI) (Combiventy, IPR-ALB, QID) for 2 weeks...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

Nebulized solutions of long-acting bronchodilators provide an alternative to DPI and MDI delivery, particularly for COPD patients unable to use hand-held devices easily or correctly. The long-acting beta2-agonist, formoterol fumarate, is differentiated by its onset of significant bronchodilation within 5 min of administration. In a randomized, double-blind, double-dummy trial, COPD subjects (n=351, mean forced expiratory volume FEV1=1.3 L, 44% predicted) received nebulized formoterol fumarate (Perforomist inhalation solution; FFIS 20 microg) or DPI (Foradil Aerolizer; FA 12 microg), or placebo twice daily for 12 weeks...
