The IMPACT trial demonstrated that fluticasone furoate/umeclidinium/vilanterol (FF/UMEC/VI) single-inhaler triple therapy significantly reduced severe exacerbations rates and all-cause mortality risk versus UMEC/VI in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, concerns have been raised about an increased risk of pneumonia with inhaled corticosteroid-containing regimens as well as cardiovascular effects with dual bronchodilation. To better determine the benefit-risk profile of FF/UMEC/VI versus FF/VI and UMEC/VI in the IMPACT population, a composite adverse event outcome was examined.
The IMPACT trial (NCT02164513, CTT116855) was a 52-week, randomized, double-blind, multicenter study comparing FF/UMEC/VI 100/62.5/25µg with FF/VI 100/25µg and UMEC/VI 62.5/25µg in patients aged ≥40 years with symptomatic COPD (COPD Assessment Test score ≥10) and forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) <50% predicted and ≥1 moderate or severe exacerbation in the prior year, or FEV1 50-<80% predicted and ≥2 moderate or ≥1 severe exacerbations in the prior year. This post hoc analysis evaluated time-to-first composite event, comprising on-treatment severe exacerbation, on-treatment cardiovascular adverse event of special interest (AESI) resulting in hospitalization or death, on-treatment pneumonia AESI resulting in hospitalization or death, or on-treatment death from any cause. For patients with multiple events, only the first event contributed to this analysis. Severe exacerbations were defined as worsening of symptoms resulting in hospitalization or death. The analysis was conducted using a Cox proportional hazards model with covariates of treatment group, sex, exacerbation history (≤1, ≥2 moderate/severe), geographical region, smoking status (screening) and post bronchodilator percent predicted FEV1 (screening).
The overall intent-to-treat population comprised 10,355 patients (FF/UMEC/VI, n=4151; FF/VI, n=4134; UMEC/VI, n=2070). Composite events occurred in 647 (16%), 636 (15%), and 356 (17%) patients receiving FF/UMEC/VI, FF/VI, and UMEC/VI, respectively. The probability of experiencing an event before Day 365 with FF/UMEC/VI, FF/VI, and UMEC/VI was 16.7%, 17.5%, and 19.1%, respectively (Figure). FF/UMEC/VI significantly reduced composite event risk versus UMEC/VI by 16.5% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 5.0, 26.7; p=0.006). The point estimates for the reduction in the risk of a composite event favored FF/UMEC/VI over FF/VI (6.2% reduction [-4.7, 15.9]; p=0.255), and FF/VI over UMEC/VI (11.1% reduction [-1.3, 21.9]; p=0.077), but differences were not statistically significant.
FF/UMEC/VI significantly reduced the risk of a composite adverse event versus UMEC/VI and numerically reduced the risk versus FF/VI, demonstrating a favorable benefit-risk profile of once-daily FF/UMEC/VI triple therapy compared with dual therapy in patients with symptomatic COPD and a history of exacerbations.
