Effect of a spacer on total systemic and lung bioavailability in healthy volunteers and in vitro performance of the Symbicort (budesonide/formoterol) pressurized metered dose inhaler.

Many patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or asthma experience difficulties in coordinating inhalation with pressurized metered-dose inhaler (pMDI) actuation. The use of a spacer device...

Enhancing Stability of Exenatide-Containing Pressurized Metered-Dose Inhaler Via Reverse Microemulsion System.

The dispersibility and stability issues of peptide drugs during preparation and storage hinder the widespread adoption of pressurized metered-dose inhaler (pMDI). This study aimed to develop a reverse...

Effect of delayed pMDI actuation on the lung deposition of a fixed-dose combination aerosol drug.

Lack of coordination between the beginning of the inhalation and device triggering is one of the most frequent errors reported in connection with the use of pMDI devices. Earlier results suggested a s...
