For your patients with COPD who have experienced at least one exacerbation in the last 12 months despite ICS/LABA or LAMA/LABA maintenance therapy, TRELEGY Ellipta could make a differece.1 2

Explore the evidence to see why.

  • In the landmark IMPACT trial, TRELEGY Ellipta reduced the annual rate of moderate/severe exacerbations vs. FF/VI at 52 weeks1

    Adapted from Lipson et al. 20181

    What could this mean for your patients?

    With TRELEGY Ellipta you could help prevent1

    *Event-based NNT calculation. NNT is calculated from the reciprocal of the absolute rate reduction (TRELEGY Ellipta versus FF/VI 1/0.016), as calculated from data presented by Lipson et al 2018.1

  • In the FULFIL study, TRELEGY Ellipta reduced the annual rate of moderate/severe exacerbations vs. BUD/FOR BD at 24 weeks2

    Adapted from Lipson et al. 2017.2

    The co-primary endpoints of change from baseline in trough FEV1 and SGRQ score at Week 24 were both met in this study.2

  • Watch Professor Paul Jones give an overview of the IMPACT trial (3 min video)

  • IMPACT was the first Phase III, randomised, double-blind, parallel-group, multicentre, 52-week trial to assess the efficacy and safety of the single-inhaler Triple Therapy TRELEGY Ellipta vs. an ICS/LABA (FF/VI 92/22 mcg) and vs. a LAMA/LABA (UMEC/VI 55/22 mcg) in symptomatic patients on COPD maintenance treatments who had experienced at least one exacerbation in the last 12 months.1 4

    Primary endpoint1

    Annual rate of on-treatment moderate/severe COPD exacerbations for TRELEGY Ellipta vs. both comparators.

    Other key endpoints1

    • Lung function: change from baseline in trough FEV1 at Week 521,3
    • Health-related quality of life: change from baseline in SGRQ score at Week 521,3

    Key inclusion criteria1 3

    Patients aged 40 years or older with COPD and a CAT score ≥10 with:

    • FEV1 <50% predicted and >1 moderate/severe exacerbations in the previous year, or
    • FEV1 ≥50% to <80% predicted and ≥2 moderate exacerbation or ≥1 severe exacerbation in the previous year
    • Patients were required to be receiving daily maintenance therapy for COPD for at least 3 months prior to screening

    Key exclusion criteria1 3

    Patients were excluded if they had any of the following:

    • a current diagnosis of asthma or other respiratory disorders
    • pneumonia or other respiratory tract infection unresolved ≤14 days or ≤7 days, respectively, prior to screening
    • unresolved exacerbation ≤14 days prior to screening
    • oral/systemic corticosteroid use ≤30 days prior to screening
  • The efficacy and safety of TRELEGY Ellipta OD was compared in the FULFIL study with budesonide/formoterol (BUD/FOR, 320/9 mcg BD).2

    The FULFIL study was a Phase III, randomised, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group, multicentre, 24-week study. Patients underwent a 2-week run-in period, during which medications at screening were unchanged from their pre-study COPD maintenance therapy, followed by a 24-week treatment period.2

    A subset of 430 patients (TRELEGY Ellipta OD n=210, BUD/FOR 320/9 mcg) BD n=220 remained on blinded study treatment for up to 52 weeks (the EXT population). Efficacy endpoints and safety were assessed up to Week 52 in the EXT population.2

    Co-primary endpoints2

    • Change from baseline in trough FEV1 and SGRQ score at Week 24

    Some secondary/other endpoints2

    • Annual rate of moderate/severe COPD exacerbations
    • Change from baseline CAT score

    Key inclusion criteria2

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

    Key exclusion criteria2

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

Moderate exacerbation was an exacerbation that required antibiotics or systemic gluticoricoids. Severe exacerbation was an exacerbation that led to hospitalisation or death
