Once-daily indacaterol improves day and nighttime symptoms associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), according to a study presented here on September 14 the 19th Annual Congress of the European Respiratory Society (ERS).
In addition, results of the Indacaterol vs Tiotropium to Help Achieve New COPD Treatment Excellence (INHANCE) study also showed that the use of rescue medication declined in patients who received indacaterol, when compared with tiotropium or placebo.
