SUN Study Results (Abstracts 303 and 308)

The long-term efficacy and tolerability of SYMBICORT was assessed in a 12-month, randomized, double-blind, multicenter study evaluating 1,964 patients ages 40 years and older with moderate to very severe COPD.(3,4) After two weeks of treatment based on previous therapy (ICS and short-acting bronchodilators were allowed), patients were then randomized to receive twice-daily treatment with two inhalations of SYMBICORT pMDI 160/4.5 mcg, SYMBICORT pMDI 80/4.5 mcg, formoterol DPI 4.5 mcg or placebo.(3,4) Study results include:

-- Improvements from baseline in morning and evening PEF were significantly (P Less Than or Equal To .017) greater for both SYMBICORT doses compared with formoterol and placebo.(3)

-- Exacerbation rates were significantly (P Less Than or Equal To .004) reduced by approximately 25-30 percent with both doses of SYMBICORT compared to formoterol and by approximately 40 percent compared to placebo.(3)

-- Both SYMBICORT doses demonstrated significantly (P<.038) greater improvements in BCSS (160/4.5 mcg only), sleep score, awakening-free nights (80/4.5 mcg only), and rescue medication use versus formoterol.(3)

-- Both doses of SYMBICORT were well-tolerated versus formoterol and placebo for up to 12 months.(4) The incidence of pneumonia-related adverse events were similar for all treatment arms compared to placebo.(4)
