Pharmacotherapy for adult asthma has two main goals: address underlying airway inflammation and promote bronchodilation. Two types of therapy are used to achieve these goals—maintenance therapy (e.g., a LABA/ICS, such as GSK’s Advair or AstraZeneca’s Symbicort) and rescue therapy (e.g., a SABA, such as albuterol)—and most adult asthma patients receive more than one drug to treat their condition. Although multiple well-established agents are available for both maintenance and rescue treatment, in the past few years, the adult asthma treatment landscape has witnessed the approval of the first branded-generic LABA/ICS FDC (i.e., Teva’s AirDuo and its generic), the first LAMA (i.e., Boehringer-Ingelheim’s Spiriva), and several novel biologics (e.g., GSK’s Nucala, Teva’s Cinqair). The availability of these agents has expanded physicians’ treatment arsenal and fueled increasing competition in the asthma therapy market. QUESTIONS ANSWERED What patient shares do key therapies and brands garner by line of therapy in newly diagnosed adult asthma patients? What are the quarterly trends in prescribing among recently treated and newly diagnosed adult asthma patients? How have newer adult asthma therapies, such as Spiriva, Nucala, and Cinqair, been integrated into the treatment algorithm, and what are their sources of business? What percentage of adult asthma patients receive drug therapy within 365 days of diagnosis, and how quickly? What percentage of patients progress to later lines of therapy within 365 days of diagnosis? What percentage of adult asthma patients are treated with monotherapy versus combination therapy? What are the most commonly used combinations? What are the product-level compliance and persistency rates among drug-treated patients? Geographies United States.
