    Indacaterol maleate

    Used For

    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    How it works

    Indacaterol is a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist for once-daily administration. When inhaled, indacaterol acts locally in the lung as a bronchodilator. Indacaterol is a nearly full agonist at the human beta2-adrenergic receptor with nanomolar potency. In isolated human bronchus, indacaterol has a rapid onset of action and a long duration of action. The pharmacological effects of beta2-adrenoceptor agonists, including indacaterol, are at least in part attributable to stimulation of intracellular adenyl cyclase, the enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to cyclic-3’, 5’-adenosine monophosphate (cyclic monophosphate). Increased cyclic AMP levels cause relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle. In vitro studies have shown that indacaterol has more than 24-fold greater potency at beta2- receptors compared to beta1-receptors and 20-fold greater potency compared to beta3-receptors. This selectivity profile is similar to formoterol. The clinical significance of this finding is unknown.

    When prescribing ONBREZ , the healthcare professional should also provide the patient with an inhaled, short-acting bronchodilator for treatment of COPD symptoms that occur acutely, despite regular once-daily use of ONBREZ .


    Warning 1

    ONBREZ is only indicated for COPD. ONBREZ should not be used in asthma due to the absence of long-term safety and efficacy data in asthma with ONBREZ .

    Warning 2

    When beginning treatment with ONBREZ , patients who have been taking inhaled, short-acting bronchodilators on a regular basis (e.g., four times a day) should be instructed to discontinue the regular use of these drugs and use them only for symptomatic relief of acute respiratory symptoms.

    Warning 3

    As with other inhalation therapy, administration of ONBREZ may result in paradoxical bronchospasm that may be life-threatening. If paradoxical bronchospasm occurs, ONBREZ should be discontinued immediately and alternative therapy instituted.
