Which maintenance medication would you start Hannah on?

In a post hoc, pooled analysis of 3 RCTs at 24 weeks in patients not on maintenance therapy (for ≥ 30 days before screening), Anoro demonstrated:

2.4% greater improvement in lung function  vs. Tiotropium

with an extra 146mL improvement in trough FEV14,5

Initial maintenance therapy:

A cross-sectional analysis of 818 COPD patients found that, despite treatment with tiotropium monotherapy, approximately 50% continue to suffer moderate to severe breathlessness (mMRC≥2)3.

Start with Anoro as an initial maintenance therapy in your symptomatic adult COPD patients.

Anoro was well tolerated and demonstrated a safety profile comparable to tiotropium HandiHaler4.

Think all
are the same?

In a 8 week, open-label, crossover study in patients not on maintenance therapy (for ≥ 2 weeks prior to randomisation)6:

Anoro provided a 38% reduction in rescue medication usage vs Spiolto (difference: 0.25 puffs/day)6.

Anoro was well tolerated and demonstrated a safety profile comparable to Spiolto Respimat6.

Anoro demonstrated:

1.4% superior lung function improvement vs. Spiolto

with an extra 52 mL improvement in trough FEV16

Anoro comes in the easy to use Ellipta inhaler7-9
