Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is both preventable and eminently treatable, yet is still the third-leading cause of death worldwide after heart disease and stroke. In this CPD-accredited webinar, Dr Alan Peter will examine the numerous combination drug trials surrounding COPD therapies and their rather interesting results. A short-acting anticholinergic plus a short-acting β-agonist (SABA) and an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) plus a long-acting β-agonist (LABA) are among common COPD treatment combinations.
