Boehringer Ingelheim, Anthem partner for largest real-world COPD trial

As part of a research collaboration launched in 2014, Boehringer Ingelheim and Anthem have partnered to study people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in real-world settings to assess how commonly-prescribed drugs may reduce the occurrence of COPD exacerbations. The team, which also includes Anthem’s outcomes research subsidiary HealthCore, plans to investigate whether adding an inhaled corticosteroid to a LAMA-LABA combination provides a meaningful benefit – a question under debate in the respiratory space. Get the full story at our sister site, Drug Delivery Business News. The post Boehringer Ingelheim, Anthem partner for largest real-world COPD trial appeared first on MassDevice.

This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT02442206. Findings Between May 18, 2015, and April 20, 2017, we randomly assigned 62 eligible participants to treatment; 30 to indacaterol–glycopyrronium followed by placebo and 32 to placebo followed by indacaterol–glycopyrronium. The 62 randomly assigned patients were included in the intent-to-treat analysis. There were two protocol violations and therefore 60 were included in the per-protocol analysis. 57 patients completed both treatment periods. After indacaterol–glycopyrronium treatment, left-ventricular end-diastolic volume increased from ...

Authors: Wu J, Li X, Qin Y, Cheng J, Hao G, Jin R, Zhu C Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of a Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine (TCHM), named Jinwei Tang on histone deacetylase 2 (HDAC2) and its role in the regulation of corticosteroid resistance in a rat model of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Male Wistar rats were divided into five groups (each n=10): COPD group, established by the intratracheal instillation of lipopolysaccharide and passive smoke exposure, and control, budesonide, theophylline + budesonide and Jinwei Tang + budesonide groups. Lung function was...

GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK) and Innoviva (NSDQ:INVA) have submitted data to the European Medicines Agency in the hopes of expanding the label for its once-daily, triple combination inhaler, Trelegy Ellipta. The drug-device combo was approved in Europe in November last year as a maintenance treatment for adult patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who are not adequately treated by a inhaled corticosteroid combined with a long-acting beta-adrenergic agonist. GSK and Innoviva hope that data from its Impact trial will support the product’s use in a broader populati...

CONCLUSIONS: In COPD patients with CVD or risk factors for CVD, exacerbations confer an increased risk of subsequent CVD events, especially in hospitalized patients and within the first 30 days post-exacerbation. Patients and clinicians should have heightened vigilance for early CVD events following AECOPD. Clinical trial registration available at www.clinicaltrials.gov, ID NCT01313676.

Increasing evidence demonstrates that children and adolescents with asthma are at risk of a reduction in lung growth, leading to lower lung function and potentially chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as adu...

This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT02579850. Findings Between May, 29 2015, and July 10, 2017, 1532 patients received BDP/FF/G (n=764) or IND/GLY (n=768). Moderate-to-severe exacerbation rates were 0·50 per patient per year (95% CI 0·45–0·57) for BDP/FF/G and 0·59 per patient per year (0·53–0·67) for IND/GLY, giving a rate ratio of 0·848 (0·723–0·995, p=0·043) in favour of BDP/FF/G. Adverse events were reported by 490 (64%) of 764 patients receiving BDP/FF/G and 516 (67%) of 768 patients receiving IND/GLY. Pneum...
