To evaluate the efficacy and safety of budesonide (BUD)/formoterol (FORM) compared with BUD, both administered by way of a dry powder inhaler (Turbuhaler*).
This was a 6-month, multicenter, randomized, parallel-group, double-blind, double-dummy design study (NCT 00421122). Patients were randomized to either BUD/FORM 160/4.5 mu g, two inhalations twice daily, or BUD 200 mg, two inhalations twice daily. Improvement of lung function, daily symptoms, reliever use and health-related quality-of-life (St George′s Respiratory Questionnaire [SGRQ] score) were compared between the two treatment groups.
A total of 308 patients with moderate to very severe COPD from 12 centers in China were randomized to BUD/FORM (n = 156) or BUD (n = 152). The primary endpoint, 1-hour post-dose forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), in the BUD/FORM group improved by 0.18 L (from 0.83 L at baseline to 1.01 L) and this was significantly better (p<0.001) than the small increase (0.03 L) observed in the BUD group after 24 weeks′ treatment. Increases in pre-dose and 15-min post-dose FEV1 together with 1-hour post-dose forced vital capacity were also significantly larger with BUD/FORM than BUD (p<0.001 for all). Compared with BUD alone, BUD/FORM improved COPD total symptom scores (-1.04 +/- 0.16 vs. -0.55 +/- 0.17; p = 0.03), reduced reliever use (-0.85 +/- 0.16 puffs/day vs. -0.31 +/- 0.16 puffs/day; p = 0.012) and improved health-related quality-of-life (mean change of total SGRQ score -4.5 points (p = 0.0182). Overall, both treatments were well tolerated.
In Chinese patients with moderate to very severe COPD, fixed combination treatment with BUD/FORM resulted in clinically meaningful improvements in lung function, health-related quality-of-life, COPD symptoms and a reduction in reliever use, compared with BUD alone and both treatments were well tolerated. Treatment of BUD/FORM for milder patients with COPD and head to head comparison of Chinese and Caucasians in future studies will be helpful to expand upon the findings of the current clinical trial.
