|1.||Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
02/01/2014 - "A significant reduction in COPD exacerbation risk with roflumilast vs. placebo was observed regardless of age or smoking status, and in patients who had severe or very severe COPD. "
01/01/2014 - "The addition of roflumilast to LABA in the treatment of patients with severe-to-very severe COPD reduces the rate of exacerbations and can be cost-effective in the UK setting."
12/01/2013 - "Roflumilast is a safe and effective option for controlling COPD exacerbations in a defined subset of patients for whom the available treatment alternatives are very limited."
01/01/2007 - "Roflumilast has the potential to be cost saving in patients with very severe COPD, due to a statistically significant reduction of exacerbations."
02/01/2014 - "In this pooled analysis (N = 3091), addition of roflumilast to LABAs for 1 year in patients who discontinued ICS prior to study entry (n = 945) significantly reduced the risk of COPD exacerbations vs. placebo by 19.2% (p < 0.05) and significantly improved pre- and postbronchodilator FEV1 by 40 mL and 34 mL, respectively (both, p < 0.01). "
|2.||Asthma (Bronchial Asthma)
01/01/2007 - "In a randomized, double-blind, 2-period, crossover trial, 13 patients with mild allergic asthma [mean forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV(1)) % predicted = 86%] received a single dose of oral roflumilast 1,000 microg or placebo. "
01/01/2004 - "Altana has stated that roflumilast has shown significant superiority over placebo in the treatment of asthma in phase II trials. "
01/01/2011 - "25 subjects with mild allergic asthma were randomized to oral roflumilast 500 mcg or placebo, once daily for 14 days in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study. "
01/01/2009 - "Inhibitory effects of roflumilast on responses characteristic of allergic asthma were investigated in a fungal asthma model in BALB/c mice. "
01/01/2007 - "These results support further investigation of roflumilast as an anti-inflammatory treatment of asthma."
01/01/2014 - "Generally speaking, roflumilast therapy appears justified for patients with symptoms of chronic bronchitis, severe or very severe bronchial obstruction (forced expiratory volume below 50%) and/or frequent exacerbations of the disease (= > 2/12 mo). "
11/01/2012 - "Roflumilast is a recently approved therapeutic option that primarily diminishes exacerbation frequency in patients with chronic bronchitis and severe airflow obstruction (FEV(1) < 50%). "
12/01/2013 - "In six placebo-controlled trials involving nearly 4500 patients with COPD of varying severity, the use of roflumilast was associated with reduced COPD exacerbations and improved lung function, as determined by spirometry, with the greatest benefits observed in patients with severe COPD who had chronic bronchitis and a history of frequent exacerbations; clinical efficacy was demonstrated in patients receiving roflumilast alone as well as those receiving concomitant inhaled long-acting β2-agonist (LABA) therapy. "
10/15/2015 - "We conducted a single-center, placebo-controlled, randomized study investigating 12 weeks of roflumilast treatment added to current therapy in moderate-to-severe COPD with chronic bronchitis. "
01/01/2014 - "One hundred and fifty patients with COPD and chronic bronchitis for at least 12 months will be recruited into the study and randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive either roflumilast or placebo. "
|4.||Obstructive Lung Diseases (Obstructive Lung Disease)
12/01/2013 - "Roflumilast in the management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease."
07/01/2007 - "This article will examine one such compound, roflumilast, which has recently shown promise as therapy for the principal obstructive lung diseases - COPD and asthma."
01/01/2014 - "Roflumilast is a selective phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE-4) inhibitor that was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in February 2011 for the management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). "
07/01/2010 - "Roflumilast, a new inhibitor of phosphodiesterase 4, showed moderate efficacy in clinical trials with patients suffering from chonic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). "
03/01/2005 - "Beside the undesired side effects associated with the first generation of PDE4 inhibitors, the second generation of selective inhibitors such as cilomilast and roflumilast showed clinical efficacy in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases trials, thus re-enhancing the interest on these classes of compounds. "
|5.||Exercise-Induced Asthma (Asthma, Exercise Induced)
03/01/2002 - "It is concluded that roflumilast is effective in the treatment of exercise-induced asthma. "
03/01/2002 - "A placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind, two-period crossover study was performed to investigate the safety and efficacy of roflumilast in 16 patients with exercise-induced asthma. "
10/01/2005 - "In asthma, roflumilast taken as a once-daily oral dose of 500 ug has been shown to improve clinical symptoms and airway function, reduce exercise-induced asthma and decrease bronchial airway hyperresponsiveness. "
03/01/2002 - "The new phosphodiesterase 4 inhibitor roflumilast is efficacious in exercise-induced asthma and leads to suppression of LPS-stimulated TNF-alpha ex vivo."
