November 11, 2016 — Results from the international, multicenter ChildHood Asthma Safety and Efficacy (CHASE) 3 Phase III study showed that SYMBICORT® (budesonide/formoterol fumarate dihydrate) Inhalation Aerosol 80/4.5 micrograms significantly improved lung function in pediatric patients between 6 to <12 years of age with asthma versus budesonide 80 micrograms, demonstrating its appropriateness as step-up therapy in this patient population.
The CHASE 3 Phase III study evaluated the efficacy and safety of budesonide/formoterol in a pressurized metered dose inhaler (pMDI) 80/2.25 micrograms, and SYMBICORT pMDI 80/4.5 micrograms, compared with budesonide pMDI 80 micrograms in children with asthma, ages 6 to <12 years, who were given two inhalations twice a day for 12 weeks. The children had previously received either medium-dose inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) or ICS/ long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonists (LABA). The primary efficacy endpoint was change from baseline pre-dose (randomization) to 1-hour post-dose forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) at week 12.
AstraZeneca PLC (AZN) conducted the CHASE 3 study after the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested additional data on budesonide and formoterol, specifically regarding the impact of different doses, in pediatric asthma patients between 6 to <12 years of age.
