    Effective bronchodilation is an important part of the management of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and can improve breathlessness and ability to undertake physical activities. Indacaterol is a new once-daily, long-acting inhaled bronchodilator for COPD. We review here...

    Background: Asthmatics treated with long-acting beta-agonists have a reduced bronchodilator response to moderate doses of inhaled short acting beta-agonists during acute bronchoconstriction. It is not known if the response to higher doses of nebulised beta-agonists or other bronchodilators is...
