Tiotropium improves lung function in asthma, regardless of allergic status

February 26, 2015

HOUSTON — The addition of tiotropium Respimat in adult patients with mild, moderate and severe asthma improved lung function independent of allergic status, according to data presented at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Annual Meeting.

“A significant number of asthma patients continue to experience symptoms despite treatment with available therapies, and it is important to understand how a patient’s allergic status might impact their response to treatment,” Kevin Murphy, MD, of the Boys Town National Research Hospital in Nebraska, said in a press release. “These data showed that the addition of tiotropium delivered via Respimat inhaler improved lung function in adults with asthma across a range of severities independent of underlying allergic status.”
