New Patient Satisfaction Study With budesonide/formoterol Combination Therapy and fluticasone/salmeterol Combination Therapy in Adults With Asthma
Date:5/20/2008

s are working and self-management of dosing, as well as seven other related categories(1). The assessment of overall satisfaction was based on all the eleven ATSM items.

About the Study Design (Abstract A13)

Patient satisfaction was assessed in an open-label study involving 832 patients ages 18 years and older with moderate to severe asthma who were previously treated with ICS(1). After a 10-14 day run-in on previous ICS therapy, patients were randomized 2:1 to receive twice daily treatment with two inhalations of budesonide/formoterol combination therapy pressurized metered-dose inhaler (pMDI) fixed dose at 160/4.5 micrograms (mcg) (N=698) or twice daily treatment with one inhalation of fluticasone/salmeterol combination therapy dry powder inhaler (DPI) at 250/50 mcg (N=350)(1). After one month, patients on budesonide/formoterol combination therapy pMDI fixed dose were randomized 1:1 to continue budesonide/formoterol combination therapy pMDI fixed dose (N=333) or budesonide/formoterol combination therapy adjustable dose (N=330) at either once daily treatment with two inhalations of 160/4.5 mcg, twice daily treatment with two inhalations of 160/4.5 mcg, or twice daily treatment with four inhalations of 160/4.5 mcg for six months. The patients originally treated with fluticasone/salmeterol combination therapy remained on that medication (N=335)(1).

About SYMBICORT

SYMBICORT is a combination therapy indicated for the long-term maintenance treatment of asthma in patients 12 years of age and older(2). Administered twice daily, SYMBICORT is a combination of two proven asthma medications -- budesonide, an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS), and formoterol, a rapid and long- acting beta2-agonist (LABA)(2). SYMBICORT does not replace fast-acting inhalers and should not be used to treat acute symptoms of asthma(2).

Important Safety Information

Long acting beta2-adrenergic agonists may increase the risk of asthma- related death. Therefore,
