Treatment of COPD is evolving specially with triple inhaler therapy.
COPD and obesity often coexist and there is a complex interaction between them. Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence of obesity in a secondary care COPD population. Furthermore, the presence of como...

A Clinical Study Assessing Critical Errors, Training/Teaching Time, and Preference Attributes of the ELLIPTA® Dry Powder Inhaler, in Comparison to Combinations of Dry Powder Inhalers Used to Provide Triple Therapy, in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pu
This is a randomized, multi-centre, open-label, placebo-device, cross-over study, with a 2x2 complete block design in subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to assess t...
This randomized, cross over study aims to find out the benefits of delivering triple therapy using a single ELLIPTA® DPI (fixed-dose combination triple therapy) versus delivering triple t...
Assessment In a Real World Setting of the Effect of Inhaled Steroid-based Triple Therapy Versus the Combination of Tiotropium and Olodaterol on Reducing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Exacerbations [AIRWISE]
The primary objective of this pragmatic study is to compare the time to first moderate or severe COPD exacerbation in patients, not controlled on their current therapy, randomized to Stiol...
A Comparative Study Between Fluticasone Furoate/Umeclidinium/Vilanterol (FF/UMEC/VI) Single Inhaler Triple Therapy Versus Tiotropium Monotherapy in Subjects With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
COPD is a progressive disease characterized by increasing obstruction to airflow and the progressive development of respiratory symptoms including chronic cough, increased sputum productio...
This is a Phase IV multi-center, randomized, open-label, cross-over, placebo study in subjects with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) to compare inhaler-specific preference attr...
A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.
The use of multiple drugs administered to the same patient, most commonly seen in elderly patients. It includes also the administration of excessive medication. Since in the United States most drugs are dispensed as single-agent formulations, polypharmacy, though using many drugs administered to the same patient, must be differentiated from DRUG COMBINATIONS, single preparations containing two or more drugs as a fixed dose, and from DRUG THERAPY, COMBINATION, two or more drugs administered separately for a combined effect. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Therapy with two or more separate preparations given for a combined effect.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
A beta-lactamase inhibitor with very weak antibacterial action. The compound prevents antibiotic destruction of beta-lactam antibiotics by inhibiting beta-lactamases, thus extending their spectrum activity. Combinations of sulbactam with beta-lactam antibiotics have been used successfully for the therapy of infections caused by organisms resistant to the antibiotic alone.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
