Pharmacokinetics of fluticasone propionate and salmeterol delivered as a combination dry powder via a capsule-based inhaler and a multi-dose inhaler
Conclusions SFC 50/250 μg Rotacaps/Rotahaler (L) showed comparable systemic exposure to Diskus in terms of FP AUC and SALM AUC and C max. These results merit further progression of SFC 50/250 μg Rotacaps/Rotahaler (L) to phase 3 clinical evaluation in asthma and COPD patients. The lack of pharmacokinetic comparability between the inhalers for SFC 50/100 μg requires further evaluation.
Authors: Utley C, Gold MH, Hall M Abstract Background/Significance of problem: Atopic Dermatitis (AD) is a common, chronic, inflammatory dermatosis and skin disease that follows a relapsing pattern and requires a dynamic stepwise approach to management.Providers feel comfortable treating chronic disease states with a guided tool or care plan in many chronic diseases.Care plans used in many chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes, and COPD have demonstrated effectiveness in disease and healthcare provider management.There is an unmet need for a universal AD care plan for providers. Clinical question/project purpos...
ConclusionsOut of e-prescriptions for inhaled medications issued in 2018 in Poland, 15.3% were not redeemed. The degree of primary non-adherence was influenced by age, but not gender. Significant differences between MDIs and DPIs and between inhalers with/without a dosage counter were observed.
AbstractThe coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is caused by Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) and presents with respiratory symptoms which can be life threatening in severe cases. At the start of the pandemic, allergy, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) were considered as risk factors for COVID-19 as they tend to exacerbate during respiratory viral infections. Recent literature has not shown that airway allergic diseases is a high-risk factor or that it increases the severity of COVID-19. This is due to a decrease in Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) gene expression in the ...
In this study, the effects of a novel pendrin inhibitor, YS-01, were investigated in an LPS-induced acute lung injury (ALI) mice model, and the mechanism underlying the effect of YS-01 was examined.Methods: Lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 10 mg/kg) was intranasally instilled in wild type (WT) and pendrin-null mice. YS-01 (10 mg/kg) was administered intra-peritoneally before or after LPS inhalation. Lung injury parameters were assessed in the lung tissue and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF). Pendrin levels in the BALF of 41 patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) due to pneumonia and 25 control (solitary pulmon...
