New Product - Incruse Ellipta

Incruse Ellipta (umeclidinium (as bromide)) is a long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonist with activity across multiple muscarinic cholinergic receptor subtypes. Umeclidinium exerts its bronchodilatory activity by competitively inhibiting the binding of acetylcholine with muscarinic acetylcholine receptors on airway smooth muscle. Incruse Ellipta is indicated as a long-term once daily maintenance bronchodilator treatment to relieve symptoms in adult patients with COPD. Incruse Ellipta is contraindicated in patients with severe milk protein allergy. Incruse Ellipta (62.5 mcg) is available as a moulded plastic inhaler containing an aluminium foil laminate strip of 30 regularly distributed blisters.
