How SPIRIVA Respimat works

How SPIRIVA® Respimat® (tiotropium) works in the treatment of asthma

The video animation ‘Acetylcholine in the airways and the role of SPIRIVA® Respimat® in asthma’ describes SPIRIVA® Respimat® as an add-on therapy in the treatment of asthma.

 

 

 

The animation explains, in a straightforward non-scientific way, the mechanism of action (MOA) of SPIRIVA® Respimat®, as well as the role that acetylcholine is known to play in the pathophysiology of asthma by causing smooth muscles in the airways to contract, the airways to narrow, and the secretion of extra mucus into the airways.1
