is a highly selective [beta]2-adrenoceptor used in bronchial asthma.
This multicenter, double-blind, noninferiority study randomly assigned 1,071 patients with moderate to severe COPD (mean forced expiratory volume in 1 second [FE[V.sub.1], 44.4% of predicted value, at least one exacerbation in the past 12 months) to receive either nebulized formoterol
20 mcg/2 mL twice daily or matching placebo for up to 12 months.
Each inhalation contains 5 mcg of formoterol
fumarate and either 100 mcg or 200 mcg of mometasone furoate.
Upon its issuance, Dey will possess seven patents directed to compositions of formoterol
, R-formoterol and/or their uses.
"starts working just as fast as albuterol," said Dr.
The patients were randomized to one of five twice-daily metered-dose inhaler treatment arms: mometasone furoate 400 mcg/formoterol 10 mcg (MF400/F10), mometasone furoate 200 mcg/formoterol 10 mcg (MF200/F10), mometasone furoate 400 mcg alone (MF400), formoterol
10 mcg alone (F10), or placebo.
"I don't have expertise in formoterol
, so I can't say it is going to be superior to Ad vair," Dr.
In a study presented at "CHEST 2004," the 70th annual international scientific assembly of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), formoterol
, a common inhaled asthma medication, delivered less than half of its expected dosage and showed significant physical changes after being exposed to 150 degrees Fahrenheit for four hours.
ML, based in Liverpool and Warrington, said the termination specifically relates to products that contain asthma compounds budesonide and formoterol
. Another agreement with Celltech over Clickhaler, involving the compounds salbutamol and beclomethasone, will continue although it will be amended.
The drug indicated a statistically-significant improvement in lung function in patients with moderate to very severe stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease when compared with individual component that included either aclidinium bromide or formoterol
