Added benefit of aclidinium bromide is not proven
Date:1/30/2013

The drug aclidinium bromide (trade names Eklira, Bretaris) has been approved since October 2012 for widening the narrowed airways of adults with chronic-obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The German Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG) has now examined the added benefit of the drug pursuant to the "Act on the Reform of the Market for Medicinal Products" (AMNOG). No proof of an added benefit of aclidinium bromide compared with the appropriate comparator therapy (ACT) can be inferred from the data in the drug manufacturer's dossier.

No robust results were submitted by the manufacturer in its dossier: for the direct comparison, there were no studies of an adequate duration. The data for the indirect comparison were incomprehensible for several reasons. Therefore the added benefit is not proven.

Tiotropium bromide as the appropriate comparator therapy

In COPD the lungs are permanently damaged and the airways are constantly narrowed. This makes breathing difficult. Aclidinium bromide (aclidinium for short) is a "bronchodilator" approved for long-term therapy. It inhibits the body's own substance acetylcholine which causes the bronchial muscles to tense up in COPD. The drug aclidinium, in the form of a powder, is breathed in using a special inhaler (Genuiar).

The ACT specified by the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) takes account of the graded treatment scheme of the current National Care Guidelines for COPD: from Stage II of the disease, long-acting beta-2 sympathomimetics (formoterol, salmeterol) and/or long-acting anticholinergics (tiotropium bromide) are to be used; from Stage III/IV, if there are more than 2 severe attacks (exacerbations) per year, inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are recommended in addition. The manufacturer followed these requirements and chose tiotropium bromide (tiotropium for short) as ACT.

Study duration too short for direct comparison
