Revefenacin for the treatment of COPD
Posted at2021-03-31

Currently, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the third leading cause of death worldwide and is common in resource-poor countries.


Revefenacin was found to have the potential to serve as long-acting bronchodilator for once-daily treatment of respiratory disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), according to a review of the drug’s effects in Cureus.


The goal of pharmacological therapy in COPD is to reduce the frequency and severity of exacerbations, relieve debilitating symptoms, and improve the overall health of individuals with the disease.

Nebulized therapy options for treatment of COPD are currently limited and use of hand-held devices can result in poor adherence, inaccurate dosing, and poor clinical outcomes.

However, revefenacin, sold as Yupelri by Theravance Biopharma, offers an opportunity for patients that prefer or require nebulized therapy to be treated with a potent, once-daily long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA). Revefenacin is the first and only once-daily nebulized bronchodilator approved by the FDA to treat COPD.
