GlaxoSmithKline and Theravance (now Innoviva) developed the once-daily inhaled combination, Anoro, consisting of umeclidinium and vilanterol for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Umeclidinium is a long-acting muscarinic antagonist, while vilanterol is a long-acting beta 2 agonist. In December 2013, the US Food and Drug Administration approved Anoro as a maintenance therapy for the treatment of airflow obstruction in patients with COPD. In May 2014, the therapy received marketing authorization in the EU and was later approved in Japan in July 2014.
