Fostair® in COPD

  • Fostair NEXThaler 100/6
  • Fostair pMDI 100/6
Fostair® NEXThaler and pMDI devices
The following Fostair presentations can be used for the symptomatic treatment of patients with severe COPD (FEV1 < 50% predicted normal), each delivering 120 inhalations per device.1,2
  • Fostair NEXThaler 100/6
  • Fostair pMDI 100/6
Comparable efficacy
  • Fostair NEXThaler has demonstrated comparable efficacy to Fostair pMDI across a variety of lung function measures1
  • Both Fostair pMDI and Fostair NEXThaler are characterised by an extrafine particle size distribution

Fostair‘s extrafine particle size distribution results in a more potent effect than formulations of beclometasone with a non-extrafine particle size distribution2

100mcg of extrafine beclometasone in Fostair is equivalent to 250mcg of non-extrafine beclometasone2

For additional information to share with your patients who have been prescribed Fostair NEXThaler or Fostair pMDI please visit our Fostair NEXThaler patient and carer site or Fostair pMDI patient and carer site.
