|1.||Asthma (Bronchial Asthma)
06/01/1998 - "Salmeterol xinafoate is a long-acting, highly selective, beta2-adrenergic agonist that produces bronchodilation and clinically significant improvement in pulmonary function for up to 12 hours in patients with asthma. "
02/01/2000 - "Combination treatment with salmeterol 50 microg and FP 250 microg given twice daily from the Diskus device provided better asthma control and greater improvement in pulmonary function than did the individual agents, and may simplify the management of asthma in patients who need both classes of drugs for optimal control of their disease."
07/01/1998 - "Salmeterol is a potent long acting beta-agonist that is effective in relieving the symptoms and airflow limitation of asthma. "
03/01/2000 - "Results of this study indicate that salmeterol, administered either as a powder 50 microg twice daily via Diskus or as an aerosol 42 microg twice daily via MDI, produces clinically significant and comparable improvement in pulmonary function and is well tolerated in patients with mild-to-moderate persistent asthma."
02/01/2000 - "Patients in the combination-product group had a significantly greater probability of remaining in the study without being withdrawn because of worsening asthma than did patients in the placebo, salmeterol, or FP groups (p </= 0.002). "
|2.||Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
01/01/2006 - "Several studies have demonstrated that long-acting beta2-agonists such as salmeterol are beneficial in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). "
10/01/1999 - "The study concluded that salmeterol 50 micrograms twice a day is effective in improving lung functions in patients with stable COPD and can be recommended as maintenance therapy for stable COPD patients."
10/01/2002 - "These data indicate that salmeterol is effective and safe in the treatment of acute exacerbation of COPD and support its use in this clinical condition."
03/01/2008 - "The aim of the present study was to evaluate, in patients with COPD, the responsiveness of the ESWT in detecting improvement in walking performance after a single dose of salmeterol. "
06/17/1996 - "This study shows that, compared with placebo, treatment with salmeterol produces an improvement in respiratory symptoms and morning PEF values in patients with moderate to severe COPD. "
01/01/2006 - "The protection against exacerbations may be attributed to better control of inflammation, AHR and lung function parameters achieved with salmeterol and FP in combination, compared with either treatment alone."
01/01/2004 - "We investigated in a cross-over double blind placebo-controlled study, the protective effect of 1 week treatment with salmeterol on allergen-induced early and late responses and the associated airway inflammation in 15 atopic asthmatic subjects. "
03/01/2001 - "A previous study suggested that the long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist salmeterol (SM) had inhibitory effects on bronchial mucosal inflammation 6 hours after allergen exposure. "
01/01/1992 - "It has been argued that the regular use of salmeterol can mask the worsening of bronchial inflammation although clinical studies have not substantiated this potential risk. "
05/01/2012 - "We found that salmeterol (10(-5) mol/l) reduced the inflammation caused by lipopolysaccharide (0.1 µg/ml) in activated murine bone marrow-derived DCs. "
|4.||Exercise-Induced Asthma (Asthma, Exercise Induced)
01/01/1993 - "Salmeterol seems especially effective in patients with nocturnal symptoms, exercise induced asthma, and in patients sensitive to inhaled irritants such as cold air. "
07/16/1998 - "Protection against exercise-induced asthma is maintained with long-term administration of salmeterol, but the length of time that the drug remains active after a single dose decreases."
11/01/1995 - "Thus, inhaled salmeterol 25 and 50 micrograms offered similar overnight protection against exercise-induced asthma and improved baseline lung function in the morning as compared to placebo."
11/01/1995 - "The main aim of the present study was to evaluate whether inhaled salmeterol given in the evening protected against exercise-induced asthma the next morning. "
08/01/1992 - "The effect of inhaled salmeterol xinafoate, a long acting beta 2 agonist, on exercise induced asthma was studied in a double blind, crossover, and placebo controlled trial. "
|5.||Airway Obstruction (Choking)
04/01/1997 - "Salmeterol xinafoate (SLM), a new long-acting beta2-agonist being used in the treatment of nocturnal airway obstruction, has proved to be very effective in this respect as well. "
06/15/2001 - "Efficacy of salmeterol xinafoate in horses with recurrent airway obstruction."
09/01/2005 - "MCC was impaired in most of these asthmatics with persistent airway obstruction and sputum production, despite regular treatment with ICS and salmeterol. "
06/15/2001 - "Salmeterol provides moderately sustained bronchodilation in horses with recurrent airway obstruction and may be an effective drug for long-term control of this condition."
06/15/2001 - "Subjective rating of airway obstruction (RAO), maximal change in pleural pressure (deltaPplmax), and pulmonary resistance (RL) were determined at baseline; 5, 15, and 30 minutes; and 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 hours after administration of salmeterol and in horses that did not receive treatment.
