Adapted from Lipson et al. 20172
Data from the FULFIL study comparing Trelegy Ellipta OD to Symbicort Turbohaler BD (BUD/FOR).2
Co-primary endpoints of change from baseline in trough FEV1 and SGRQ score at Week 24 were both met. Further information on the FULFIL study further down this page.
*MCID: Minimal Clinically Important Difference. Patients with COPD have been shown to perceive an improvement of ≥100mL in trough FEV1 as beneficial.
Doses shown as delivered doses, equating to a pre-dispensed dose of: FF/UMEC/VI 100/62.5/25 and BUD/FOR 400/12

Key trial design

  • FULFIL was a Phase III, randomised, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group, multicentre, 24-week study designed to assess the efficacy and safety of the single-inhaler triple therapy Trelegy Ellipta OD (FF/UMEC/VI) vs. Symbicort Turbohaler BD (BUD/FOR), with an extension to 52 weeks in a subset of patients.2

    Secondary endpoints include:

    • Annual rate of moderate/severe COPD exacerbations

    Key inclusion criteria

    • Patients with COPD with a FEV1 <50% and a CAT score ≥10, or
    • Patients with a FEV1 ≥50% to <80% and a CAT score ≥10, and either ≥2 moderate exacerbations in the past year or ≥1 severe exacerbation in the past year*
    • Aged ≥40 years

    Key exclusion criteria:

    • Current diagnosis of asthma causing patient symptoms
    • Unresolved pneumonia or severe COPD exacerbation

    *A moderate exacerbation was defined as having worsening symptoms of COPD that required treatment with oral/systemic corticosteroids and/or antibiotics. A severe exacerbation was defined as worsening symptoms of COPD that required treatment with inpatient hospitalisation
