Abstract

Indacaterol is a new, once-daily beta(2)-agonist with an onset of action within 5 min and a duration of bronchodilation of at least 24 h. In doses of 150 and 300 microg, it has sustained benefits over 6 - 12 months with respect to both bronchodilation and patient-reported outcomes and is well-tolerated with an acceptable safety profile.
