Final results from landmark DYNAGITO® trial published in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine1

Del

Boehringer Ingelheim today announced data from the landmark 52-week DYNAGITO® trial which show that in people with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), Spiolto® Respimat® (tiotropium/olodaterol 5/5µg) lowers the rate of moderate-to-severe exacerbations compared with Spiriva® Respimat® (tiotropium). The pre-specified significance level of p<0.01 for the primary endpoint of DYNAGITO® was not met.1 Treatment with tiotropium/olodaterol resulted in a 7% lower rate of moderate-to-severe COPD exacerbations compared with tiotropium alone (p=0.0498).1 This study, involving more than 7,800 people with COPD over 1 year, was published today in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine.1

“The results of DYNAGITO® are of value, as they show that tiotropium/olodaterol can lower the rate of moderate-to-severe exacerbations in many patients compared to tiotropium – a tough comparator which has consistently demonstrated exacerbation risk reduction through long-term, real-world experience,” said study investigator Professor Peter M.A. Calverley, Professor of Pulmonary Medicine, University of Liverpool, UK. “These data support evidence-based expert recommendations that dual bronchodilator LAMA/LABA therapy has a central role in the management of people with COPD, in terms of symptom improvement and exacerbation risk reduction.”7

COPD is a progressive, yet treatable condition that significantly impacts patients’ lives, restricting their daily activities from early on in the disease.8,9,10 COPD exacerbations, or flare-ups, are sudden episodes of increased breathlessness, cough and mucus production that can last for several days or even weeks.11 These episodes can be seriously disabling, resulting in a need for urgent medical care, including hospitalisation, and sometimes lead to death.11

Further DYNAGITO® data demonstrated that tiotropium/olodaterol was associated with fewer moderate-to-severe exacerbations that needed intervention with a systemic corticosteroid, with or without antibiotics, compared with tiotropium:1*

  • A 20% lower rate of moderate-to-severe exacerbations that required treatment with a systemic corticosteroid (p=0.0068).1*
  • A 9% lower rate of exacerbations where the use of both a systemic corticosteroid and antibiotics were needed (p=0.0447).1*
  • No difference was observed in the rate of exacerbations that required treatment with antibiotics only (p=0.2062).1*

No new side effects or safety concerns were identified in the DYNAGITO® study.1 These data also show that tiotropium/olodaterol has a similar safety profile to tiotropium.1

Reducing symptoms and the future risk of exacerbations are key treatment goals for COPD.7 According to the international GOLD 2018 Strategy recommendations, LAMA/LABA treatments such as tiotropium/olodaterol play a central role in the management of COPD and help to achieve these treatment goals.7

Norsk Titanium Collaborates with QuesTek Innovations LLC17.7.2018 11:00Pressemelding

Norsk Titanium (Norsk) and QuesTek Innovations LLC (QuesTek) announce a collaborative effort to test novel titanium alloys for applicability in additive manufacturing processes. As part of this collaboration, the companies are evaluating a QuesTek-designed titanium alloy using Norsk’s Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) process. Preliminary evaluation of the alloy is complete and Norsk has manufactured initial test specimens. The test program will characterize the alloy microstructure, provide initial material properties, and will confirm QuesTek’s Ti alloy performance using Norsk’s proven production process. QuesTek’s patented titanium alloy has previously demonstrated approximately 15% greater strength and improved ductility over traditional Ti-6Al-4V in both wire-based Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing and traditional casting processes. "We are excited to be working closely with Norsk Titanium’s business and technical team to evaluate our alloy in their proven process. Based on our i
