New Product - Breo Ellipta

Breo Ellipta (fluticasone furoate/ vilanterol (as trifenatate)) contains a synthetic trifluorinated corticosteroid with potent anti inflammatory activity and a selective long-acting, beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA). Breo Ellipta is indicated in the symptomatic treatment of patients with COPD with a FEV1 < 70% predicted normal (post-bronchodilator) in patients with an exacerbation history despite regular bronchodilator therapy. Breo Ellipta is also indicated in the regular treatment of moderate to severe asthma in patients who require a medium to high dose inhaled corticosteroid combined with a long-acting beta2-agonist. Breo Ellipta is contraindicated in patients with severe milk protein allergy. Breo Ellipta (100 mcg/25 mcg, 200 mcg/25 mcg) is available as a moulded plastic inhaler containing two strips of 30 regularly distributed blisters.
