A Once-Daily Oral Drug for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease That Treats COPD-Related Inflammation Could Achieve Blockbuster Status

Although Physicians Report Satisfaction with GlaxoSmithKline's Advair and Boehringer Ingelheim/Pfizer's Spiriva, Significant Need Remains for a Novel Anti-Inflammatory Drug, According to a New Report from Decision Resources

"Because Spiriva is the first-to-market LAMA and has extensive clinical data and physician experience, we don't expect aclidinium to immediately achieve wide acceptance upon launch as the gold standard for COPD as physicians must first gain clinical experience with the d
