Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease | Treatment Algorithms | Claims Data Analysis | US | 2017

The COPD treatment algorithm continues to evolve, with changing recommendations on the use of ICS s, LABA / ICS FDC s, and LABA / LAMA FDC s. This study reveals which therapies are prescribed first-line after diagnosis and how treatment evolves as patients move through additional lines of therapy.

Additionally, some patients receive a combination of a LAMA and a LABA / ICS FDC , and LABA / LAMA FDC s are beginning to gain traction in this.
