An overview of Relvar Ellipta and why it is authorised in the EU

Relvar Ellipta is an inhaler for treating asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

In asthma, it is used for regular treatment of patients from 12 years of age:

  • whose symptoms are not controlled with an inhaled corticosteroid and an inhaled short-acting beta-2 agonist;
  • whose symptoms are adequately controlled with both inhaled corticosteroids and a long-acting beta-2 agonist.

In COPD, it is used in adults who have flare-ups of the disease despite regular bronchodilator treatment (treatment to widen the airways).

Relvar Ellipta contains the active substances fluticasone furoate and vilanterol.
