What is Trelegy?

Trelegy Ellipta BNF contains three active ingredients called fluticasone furoate, umeclidinium bromide, and vilanterol. Fluticasone furoate belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids, often simply called steroids. Umeclidinium bromide and vilanterol belong to a group of medications called bronchodilators.

How does it work?

Fluticasone furoate/umeclidinium/vilanterol is a combination of a synthetic inhaled corticosteroid, a long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonist, and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (ICS / LAMA / LABA). Following oral inhalation, umeclidinium and vilanterol act locally in the airways to produce bronchodilation by different mechanisms of action, and fluticasone furoate reduces inflammation.

Fluticasone furoate

Fluticasone furoate is a corticosteroid with potent anti-inflammatory activity. The exact mechanism by which fluticasone furoate acts on COPD symptoms is unknown. Corticosteroids have been shown to have a wide variety of action on multiple cell types (eg, eosinophils, macrophages, lymphocytes) and on mediators involved in inflammation (eg, cytokines and chemokines).

Umeclidinium

Umeclidinium is a long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonist (also known as an anticholinergic). Umeclidinium exerts its bronchodilator activity by competitively inhibiting the binding of acetylcholine to the muscarinic receptors of the bronchial smooth muscle. In pre-clinical studies, it is shown to have slow reversibility in vitro in human M3 muscarinic receptor subtypes and a long duration of action in vivo when administered directly to the lungs.

Vilanterol

Vilanterol is a selective long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA). The pharmacological effect of beta2-adrenergic agonist drugs, including vilanterol, are at least in part attributable to stimulation of intracellular adenylate cyclase, the enzyme that catalyzes the transformation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to adenosine monophosphate - 3 ', 5 'cyclical (cyclic AMP). The increase in cyclic AMP levels causes relaxation of the bronchial smooth muscle and inhibition of the release of mediators of immediate hypersensitivity of cells, especially mast cells.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Trelegy Ellipta is indicated as maintenance treatment in adult patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), who are not adequately controlled with the combination of an inhaled corticosteroid and a long-acting β2-agonist or with the combination of an agonist. long-acting β2 and a long-acting muscarinic antagonist.

The recommended dose is one inhalation every day, at the same time each day. You only need one inhalation a day, as the effect of this medicine lasts for 24 hours.

Interaction with beta-blockers

Beta2-adrenergic blockers can decrease or antagonize the effect of beta2-adrenergic agonists such as vilanterol. If the administration of beta-blockers is required, cardioselective beta-blockers should be considered, although caution should be exercised during concomitant use of both non-selective and selective beta-blockers.

Interaction with CYP3A4 inhibitors

Fluticasone furoate and vilanterol both undergo rapid clearance due to intense first-pass metabolism mediated by the liver enzyme CYP3A4.

Caution is advised when administering this medicinal product together with potent CYP3A4 inhibitors (eg ketoconazole, ritonavir, cobicistat-containing medicinal products), as increased systemic exposure of both fluticasone furoate and vilanterol is possible, resulting in May cause a potential increase in adverse reactions.
