|1.||Asthma (Bronchial Asthma)
01/01/2006 - "In these adolescent and adult patients whose asthma was not controlled by medium doses of an ICS, FSC delivered via HFA 134a MDI (2 inhalations of 110/21-microg strength administered BID) was more effective in improving lung function than FP or SAL monotherapy or PLA. "
06/01/2000 - "The study period was 12 months and involved 412 subjects with moderate to severe asthma (HFA 134a pMDI: n = 203; CFC pMDI: n = 209). "
01/01/2012 - "Children from 1 to <4 yrs of age with stable asthma but a clinical need for inhaled corticosteroid therapy were administered 88 μg FP hydrofluoroalkane (2 × 44 μg) twice daily delivered through the two devices in an open-label, randomised crossover manner for 8 days each. "
07/01/2007 - "BID doses of SFC hydrofluoroalkane 50/100 pg, 50/250 pg, and 50/500 pg administered via MDI for 52 weeks were well tolerated in this population of adolescents and adults with persistent asthma."
03/01/2007 - "MF delivered by HFA-227 MDI significantly reduces daily OCS use compared with placebo and facilitates elimination of OCS use in patients with severe persistent asthma."
|2.||Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
10/01/2001 - "Ipratropium bromide hydrofluoroalkane inhalation aerosol is safe and effective in patients with COPD."
10/01/2001 - "To compare the efficacy and safety of ipratropium bromide reformulated with the chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-free propellant hydrofluoroalkane (HFA)-134a (ipratropium bromide HFA) to that of the marketed ipratropium bromide inhalation aerosol (containing CFC) in patients with COPD. "
11/01/2006 - "In an open-label study at 37 outpatient centers, patients > or =4 years old with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease requiring short-acting 32-agonists received two actuations of albuterol hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) [Ventolin HFA: GlaxoSmithKline], 90 microg twice daily, via a novel MDI with an integrated dose counter until all 200 actuations were completed. "
02/01/2008 - "Therefore, the Modulite formoterol hydrofluoroalkane-based formulation in extra-fine particles is a valuable therapeutic option for both patients and physicians in the management of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease."
01/01/2008 - "The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of an extra-fine ICS, hydrofluoroalkane-134a beclometasone dipropionate (HFA-BDP) with a mass median aerodynamic diameter of 1.1 microm, on lung function and exercise tolerance in COPD patients with AATD when added to long-acting bronchodilators (LABAs). "
01/01/2013 - "In particular, hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) solution technology and the development of smaller particle sizes have resulted in the production of new ICS formulations that have the ability to directly target drug delivery to the site of airway inflammation. "
12/01/2002 - "The new hydrofluoroalkane preparations offer more lung deposition and may be important in treating inflammation of the small airways in patients with asthma."
05/01/2007 - "Delivering hydrofluoroalkane beclomethasone dipropionate via the NH and AP attenuates asthmatic airway inflammation to a comparable degree and produces a similar in vitro fine particle dose profile."
01/01/2007 - "One-year evaluation of the preventative effect of hydrofluoroalkane-beclomethasone dipropionate on eosinophilic inflammation of asthmatic peripheral airways."
06/01/2008 - "Therefore, extra-fine hydrofluoroalkane-beclomethasone may be particularly useful for treating peripheral airway inflammation in asthma. "
|4.||Airway Obstruction (Choking)
06/01/2010 - "The aim of this study was to assess the lung deposition and lung distribution of beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP)/formoterol (100/6 microg), both dissolved in hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) and delivered by pressurized metered dose inhaler (pMDI) in healthy subjects, asthmatic, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients, to investigate how the in vitro characteristics of the formulation translate into the in vivo performance in diseases with different airway obstruction. "
11/01/2011 - "Effects on small airway obstruction of long-term treatments with beclomethasone/formoterol hydrofluoroalkane (metered-dose inhaler) versus fluticasone/salmeterol (dry-powder inhaler) in asthma: a preliminary study."
|5.||Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)
03/01/2013 - "Triamcinolone acetonide (TAA) has been reformulated as an hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) aerosol for intranasal use in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR). "
03/01/2013 - "Therapeutic equivalence of triamcinolone acetonide hydrofluoroalkane and chlorofluorocarbon nasal inhalers in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis."
01/01/2012 - "A study of the efficacy and safety of ciclesonide hydrofluoroalkane nasal aerosol in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis from mountain cedar pollen."
12/01/2010 - "Evaluation of the efficacy and safety of ciclesonide hydrofluoroalkane nasal aerosol, 80 or 160 μg once daily, for the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis."
08/01/2009 - "To determine the optimal dose, safety, and tolerability of ciclesonide hydrofluoroalkane nasal aerosol in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR). "
