I heard of Zenopa first from the magazine Pharmaceutical Field 5 years ago. Then a good friend of mine mentioned Zenopa to me again last year in July.

Almirall and Forest announce positive COPD trial results

7 January 2010 00:00 in Pharmaceutical Company Product News

Almirall and Forest Laboratories have announced that a phase III trial that compared the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) therapy aclidinium bromide BID with a placebo has yielded positive results.

In a statement, the companies explained that the study met its primary endpoint of having aclidinium bromide producing statistically significant changes from baseline in the morning pre-dose trough FEV versus the placebo after three months.

Commenting on the news, Per-Olof Andersson, executive director of research and development at Almirall, said that the firm is "encouraged" by the fruitful top-line results.

The results are consistent with earlier research which compared aclidinium with tiotropium and a placebo.

Lawrence Olanoff, president and chief operating officer of Forest Laboratories, added: "These data suggest that aclidinium administered BID provides a clinically-important bronchodilatory effect with good tolerability in patients with COPD."

This news follows Alimirall's recent announcement that the European Medicines Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use adopted a positive opinion for its silodosin drug.
