Summary

Table of Contents




Combination therapy is set to take centre stage in the treatment of COPD as leading companies such as GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Boehringer Ingelheim and AstraZeneca vie for market position and share. But will clinicians, payers and patients be persuaded to change from well-established products?


Despite recently approved dual combinations of Long Acting Muscarinic Antagonists (LAMA) and Long Acting Beta2 Agonists (LABA) bringing little novelty to the therapeutic party, companies remained focused on combination approaches. The focus now is on triple combination products, with companies arguing that these will simplify treatment sequencing and provide adherence benefits. But do KOLs agree?

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD): KOL Insight provides answers to this question, plus many more. It includes insight and opinion from 12 leading US and European KOLs, presents business-critical insights for branded pharma and the drug discovery community, and highlights what KOLS think about current treatments, and what new therapies will need to demonstrate for the COPD treatment paradigm to change.

KOL Views Covered

LAMAs: Spiriva (Boehringer Ingelheim), Eklira/Tudorzas (AstraZeneca), Seebri (Novartis), Incruse (GSK)
LABAs: Arcapta/Onbrez (Novartis), Striverdi (Boehringer Ingelheim)
LAMA/LABA combinations: Ultibro (Novartis), Anoro (GSK), Duaklir (AstraZeneca)
