Data for Investigational Tiotropium Show Improved Lung Function and Sustained Bronchodilation in Patients with Moderate Asthma Severity
Date:9/10/2013

RIDGEFIELD, Conn., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boehringer Ingelheim will present a pooled analysis of new data from the Phase 3 UniTinA-asthma® program at the European Respiratory Society (ERS) Annual Congress 2013 in Barcelona.

Tiotropium is being investigated to determine the medicine's efficacy in treating asthma patients and is not currently approved for this indication.

These new data from the MezzoTinA-asthma® Phase 3 studies also showed the addition of once-daily tiotropium delivered via the Respimat® inhaler provided a statistically significant improvement in asthma control responder rate, as measured by the Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ).

"These results give us insight into the potential efficacy of tiotropium in the subset of asthma patients who remain symptomatic despite using medium-dose ICS and show that the addition of tiotropium may provide improvements in asthma control and lung function that could be clinically meaningful," said lead study author Professor Huib A.M.
