How pMDIs are transforming Asthma and COPD treatments

Pressurized metered dose inhalers have been used to treat asthma and COPD for over 60 years. However, the technologies within the pMDI container closure system and the drug and its formulation are very different and continue to evolve to meet patient needs, contain costs, and address changes in regulatory and environmental laws.  The immediate challenge to the Pharmaceutical industry however, is how to develop more sustainable pMDIs while at the same time, maintain patients adherence and compliance to their familiar treatment, lower the GWP of inhalers and to lower the overall carbon footprint of treatment.

This interview reviews some of these challenges and development timelines for new sustainable pMDIs as well as the discussion around dose counters in all future pressurized metered dose inhalers.
