GlaxoSmithKline said that the once-daily 200/25 µg dose of fluticasone furoate/vilanterol led to an additional improvement in FEV1 of 34 mL when compared to the 100/25 µg dose. The primary endpoint only evaluated the low-dose of fluticasone furoate/vilanterol vs. fluticasone furoate. The most common adverse events reported across all treatment arms were headache, nasopharyngitis, upper respiratory tract infection and influenza infection.
