GlaxoSmithKline: EU approves new COPD drug.

(CercleFinance.com) - GlaxoSmithKline has said that the European Commission has granted marketing authorisation for Trelegy Ellipta as a maintenance treatment for moderate-to-severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Brussels' decision only concerns adult patients who are not adequately treated by a combination of an inhaled corticosteroid and a long-acting beta2-agonist.

Developed with US-based Innoviva, Trelegy Ellipta is a combination of an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS), a long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA), delivered once daily in GSK's Ellipta dry powder inhaler.

It is due to be launched in Europe by the end of the year.
