"This is a major advance in inhalers - the need for more intuitive devices is critical and has been highlighted by healthcare professionals and patient groups. It is widely accepted that poor or inadequate inhaler technique not only negatively impacts treatment adherence, but means that patients do not obtain the full benefit from their medication," said Rob Koremans, M.D., President and CEO of Teva Global Specialty Medicines.
