Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/21/2012 -- COPD is a growing market with a dynamic pipeline aiming to address unmet needs. A number of pipeline products threaten established drug classes.

Report Highlights

As the first once-daily LAMA, Spiriva (tiotropium; Boehringer Ingelheim) has become the clear gold-standard monotherapy for COPD, with widespread use across all disease severities. A number of novel LAMAs are being developed, but these will struggle to compete with Spiriva, which has had years to develop a loyal physician and patient base.

Significant developments are expected during 2012 as numerous promising candidates are close to reaching the COPD market. Almirall's LAMA Eklira (aclidinium) is under review in the US and EU with a decision expected later in 2012. If successful, Eklira could pose the first direct threat to Spiriva (tiotropium; Boehringer Ingelheim).

GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis are set to go head-to-head in a number of key drug classes for COPD, including the first once-daily ICS/LABA and LABA/LAMA combinations. With Phase III trials complete and plans to file in mid-2012, GlaxoSmithKline's Relovair (fluticasone furoate/vilanterol) is on track to become the first approved once-daily ICS/LABA
