Each of the Emerging LABA/LAMA Fixed-Dose Combinations Has Advantages Over Current Therapies on Efficacy Measures, According to Findings from Decision Resources Group
BURLINGTON, Mass., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources Group finds that surveyed U.S. and European pulmonologists agree that a therapy offering a greater reduction in exacerbations is among the areas of greatest opportunity for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) treatments. The majority of surveyed U.S. payers also indicated that improved ability on this end point would be worthy of a premium price relative to Boehringer Ingelheim/Pfizer's Spiriva. Although clinical data and the opinions of interviewed thought leaders indicate that, to date, no emerging bronchodilators have demonstrated the potential to fulfill this unmet need, pulmonologists will also look for improvements in lung function and quality of life, which many of the novel COPD therapies will offer.
