Glyair Smart

GLYAIR smart offers Breathing Space in COPD (CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a long-term lung disease that causes airflow blockages and breathing-related problems. Symptoms of COPD can include shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing. COPD can be caused by smoking, but it can also be caused by other factors, such as exposure to secondhand smoke, air pollution, or certain chemicals.

There is no cure for COPD, but there are treatments that can help manage the symptoms and improve quality of life. One of these treatments is GLYAIR smart, a long-acting bronchodilator that provides 24-hour relief of COPD symptoms.

What is GLYAIR smart?

GLYAIR smart is a respule, which means that it is a pre-filled capsule that is used with a nebulizer. To use GLYAIR smart, simply attach the respule to your nebulizer and follow the instructions that come with your device. You will need to take GLYAIR smart twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.

GLYAIR smart contains a medication called glycopyrronium, which works by blocking the effects of a natural substance called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a chemical that causes the airways to narrow, which can make it difficult to breathe. By blocking the effects of acetylcholine, glycopyrronium helps to keep the airways open and makes it easier to breathe.

GLYAIR smart has been shown to be effective in improving COPD symptoms, such as shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of COPD exacerbations, which are episodes of worsening COPD symptoms. In addition, GLYAIR smart has been shown to improve lung function and quality of life in people with COPD.

How does GLYAIR smart work?

GLYAIR smart starts working within minutes of taking it and provides relief of COPD symptoms for up to 24 hours. It has been shown to be effective in improving COPD symptoms, such as shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of COPD exacerbations, which are episodes of worsening COPD symptoms.

Pharmacological Properties

  • Mechanism of action: Glycopyrronium is a long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonist (LAMA). It works by blocking the action of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that causes the airways to narrow. By blocking the action of acetylcholine, glycopyrronium helps to relax the muscles in the airways, making it easier to breathe.
  • Pharmacokinetics: Glycopyrronium is well absorbed after inhalation. It reaches peak plasma concentrations within 15 minutes of administration. Glycopyrronium is metabolized in the liver and excreted in the urine. The half-life of glycopyrronium is approximately 35 hours.
  • Pharmacodynamics: Glycopyrronium has a long duration of action, providing bronchodilation for up to 24 hours. It is effective in improving lung function in patients with COPD. Glycopyrronium is also effective in reducing the number and severity of exacerbations of COPD.

Here are some additional details about the pharmacological properties of GLYAIR smart glycopyrronium 25 mcg Inhalation solution respules:

  • Glycopyrronium is a quaternary ammonium compound, which means that it has a positive charge. This charge allows glycopyrronium to bind to the negatively charged muscarinic receptors in the airways.
  • Glycopyrronium is a high-affinity, long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonist. This means that it binds to the muscarinic receptors with a high degree of strength and it has a long duration of action.
  • Glycopyrronium is a selective muscarinic receptor antagonist. This means that it has a higher affinity for the muscarinic receptors in the airways than it does for the muscarinic receptors in other tissues, such as the heart and the bladder.
  • Glycopyrronium is a reversible muscarinic receptor antagonist. This means that it does not permanently block the action of acetylcholine. The effects of glycopyrronium wear off after the drug is cleared from the body.

Nonclinical Properties

  • Toxicology: Glycopyrronium was evaluated for its safety in a variety of animal studies. These studies showed that glycopyrronium is generally well tolerated and has a wide margin of safety. The most common adverse effects observed in animal studies were related to the muscarinic receptor-blocking activity of glycopyrronium, such as dry mouth, constipation, and urinary retention.
  • Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility: Glycopyrronium was not carcinogenic in long-term animal studies. It did not induce gene mutations or chromosomal damage in in vitro studies. Glycopyrronium did not impair fertility in male or female animals.
  • Developmental Toxicity: Glycopyrronium was not teratogenic in animal studies. However, it did cause some adverse effects in pregnant animals, such as decreased fetal weight and delayed ossification. These effects were likely due to the muscarinic receptor-blocking activity of glycopyrronium.
