Formoterol is a new catecholamine analogue for which a longer duration of action is claimed. We studied the bronchodilator action of 12 micrograms and 24 micrograms of inhaled formoterol compared to 200 micrograms of inhaled salbutamol and placebo, in seven patients (mean age 59.3 yr) with moderate asthma. The adjusted mean peak rise in FEV1 was +0.331 each for salbutamol, 12 micrograms formoterol and 24 micrograms formoterol, all being significantly greater than that of placebo (+0.161; P less… CONTINUE READING
