Original Article- Dual bronchodilation with QVA149 reduces patient-reported dyspnoea in COPD: BLAZE study (Ref: ERJ Express. Published on October 31, 2013 as doi: 10.1183/09031936.00124013)
Abstract: The effect of a dual bronchodilator (QVA149) was evaluated combining Indacaterol and Glycopyrronium, on direct patient-reported dyspnoea in moderate-to severe COPD. In this multicentre, blinded, double-dummy, three-period crossover study, once-daily QVA149 provided superior improvements in patientreported dyspnoea and lung function versus placebo and tiotropium. These benefits were associated with improvements in other symptoms and reduced use of rescue medication.
