Perforomist(TM) Inhalation Solution is nebulized once in the morning and once in the evening, providing many COPD patients with round-the-clock symptom management. GOLD treatment guidelines recommend that physicians use a LABA (such as Perforomist(TM) Inhalation Solution) as an option for patients with moderate to very severe COPD.
Christy Taylor, Chief Operating Officer at Dey, L.P., noted, "We are delighted to make Perforomist(TM) Inhalation Solution available to the millions of Americans who live with COPD. We are confident that Perforomist(TM) Inhalation Solution is a rapid and efficacious maintenance medication that can improve symptoms for many patients and fit suitably into their daily routines. For more than a decade we have been the US leader in sales of nebulized respiratory products, and Perforomist(TM) Inhalation Solution is a valuable and innovative addition to this portfolio."
Robert J. Coury, Vice Chairman and CEO of Mylan Inc., stated, "We are extremely pleased with the management team at Dey for their ability to execute on their initiatives by the launch of Perforomist(TM) Inhalation Solution approximately six months in advance of what was originally anticipated and forecasted. Additionally, we are thrilled about this differentiated next generation product, which we believe will substantially replace the sales resulting from the loss of exclusivity of DuoNeb(R) Inhalation Solution.
Gene L. Colice, MD, Department Director, Pulmonary, Critical Care and
Respiratory Service, Washington Hospital Service, remarked, "Formoterol is
a wonderful molecule. It's a very effective bronchodilator and works
quickly, but probably its biggest benefit is that it works for 12 hours.
Having formoterol in a nebulized form is an important option, since in my
experience with hospitalized patients, the nebulizer is our preferred
approach. Perforomist(TM) Inhalatio
