Rationale: The IMPACT trial demonstrated a significant reduction in on-/off-treatment all-cause mortality (ACM) risk with fluticasone furoate/umeclidinium/vilanterol (FF/UMEC/VI) versus UMEC/VI in patients with symptomatic chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and a history of exacerbations. To identify whether this mortality benefit finding was associated with specific patient characteristics, the time to on-/off-treatment ACM by patient subgroups was investigated.
Methods: IMPACT was a Phase III, randomized, double-blind, 52-week trial comparing once-daily FF/UMEC/VI 100/62.5/25 mcg with FF/VI 100/25 mcg and UMEC/VI 62.5/25 mcg. Eligible patients (aged ≥40 years) had symptomatic COPD (COPD Assessment Test score ≥10), and a forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) <50% predicted and ≥1 moderate or severe exacerbation in the prior year, or a FEV1 50-<80% predicted and ≥2 moderate or ≥1 severe exacerbations in the prior year. This post hoc analysis analyzed time to on-/off-treatment ACM, including additional vital status data, for FF/UMEC/VI versus UMEC/VI using a Cox proportional hazards model with covariates of treatment group, age (at screening), and sex. On-/off-treatment deaths were defined as those occurring between study treatment start date and the latest of study treatment stop date or projected Week 52 date (based on treatment start date) +7 days, inclusive. Subgroups included pneumonia history, cardiovascular risk, smoking status, age, sex, body mass index, race, geographical region, and exacerbation history in the prior year.
Results: The intent-to-treat (ITT) population comprised 10,355 patients (FF/UMEC/VI, n=4151; FF/VI n=4134; UMEC/VI, n=2070); vital status at Week 52 was obtained for 99.6% of the ITT population. There were 98 (2.36%) and 66 (3.19%) on-/off-treatment deaths reported in the FF/UMEC/VI and UMEC/VI arms, respectively. FF/UMEC/VI demonstrated a significant reduced risk of on-/off-treatment ACM compared with UMEC/VI in some subgroups, including patients with ≥2 cardiovascular risk factors (39.4% reduction; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 7.1, 60.5; P=0.022), a past history of pneumonia (49.1% reduction; 95% CI: 10.4, 71.1; P=0.019), or with <2 moderate/severe exacerbations (42.1% reduction; 95% CI: 7.3, 63.8; P=0.023) (Figure 1).
Conclusions: This post hoc analysis examined multiple patient subgroups representing predefined demographics and baseline disease characteristics. The mortality reduction was generally consistent across subgroups with none disproportionately contributing to the overall on-/off-treatment ACM benefits for FF/UMEC/VI versus UMEC/VI seen in the IMPACT trial. However, the small number of events in some patient subgroups limits the interpretation of these findings.
