Active Ingredient History
Umeclidinium (used as a bromide salt) is a long-acting, antimuscarinic antagonist, often referred to as an anticholinergic, developed for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (alone and in combination with Vilanterol - long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist). Umeclidinium has similar affinity to the subtypes of muscarinic receptors M1 to M5 with Ki values of 0.16 nM, 0.15 nM, 0.06 nM, 0.05 nM and 0.13 nM for M1, M2, M3, M4 and M5, respectively. Umeclidinium is selective against mAChR over other unrelated receptors or channels such as κ and σ opiod receptors, Na+ channel and dopamine transporter. In the airways, it exhibits pharmacological effects through the inhibition of M3 receptor at the smooth muscle leading to bronchodilation. There is potential for an additive interaction with concomitantly used anticholinergic medicines. NCATS
