Which maintenance medication would you start Hannah on?

Anoro vs.
LAMA alone

50% of patients with COPD still experience breathlessness on monotherapy3.

LAMA/LABAs demonstrate superior lung function and symptom improvements vs monotherapy4.

A pooled, post hoc subgroup analysis showed that in patients naive to COPD maintenance therapy, Anoro has demonstrated a 2.4x greater improvement in lung function vs tiotropium HandiHaler with a comparable safety profile5,6.

Start with Anoro. It could provide you and your patients a superior alternative to LAMA alone5,6.

Details of the blinding process for all tiotropium HandiHaler comparator studies discussed on this page can be found on page 474 in Decramer M at al. Lancet Respir Med 2014; 2:472-4867.

Think all
are the same?

Anoro is the only once-daily LAMA/LABA to demonstrate in-class superiority8.

In a head-to-head trial, Anoro Ellipta provided 1.4x superior lung function improvement vs Spiolto, another LAMA/LABA8.

Anoro also provided a 38% reduction in rescue medication usage vs Spiolto. The safety profiles were comparable between Spiolto and Anoro8.

Prescribe Anoro for superior lung function improvement compared with Spiolto8.
