Vilanterol
Accession Number
DB09082
Description

Vilanterol is a selective long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) with inherent 24-hour activity for once daily treatment of COPD and asthma. Its pharmacological effect is attributable to stimulation of intracellular adenylyl cyclase which catalyzes the conversion of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to cyclic-3',5'-adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). Increases in cyclic AMP are associated with relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle and inhibition of release of hypersensitivity mediators from mast cells in the lungs.

Vilanterol is approved for use in several combination products such as with fluticasone furoate under the tradename Breo Ellipta and in combination with umeclidinium bromide as Anoro Ellipta. Approved by the FDA in 2013, use of Breo Ellipta is indicated for the long-term, once-daily maintenance treatment of airflow obstruction in patients with COPD, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It is also indicated for once-daily maintenance treatment of asthma in patients aged 18 or older with reversible obstructive airways disease.

Mechanism of action

Vilanterol is a selective long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist. Its pharmacological effect is attributable to stimulation of intracellular adenylyl cyclase which catalyzes the conversion of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to cyclic-3',5'-adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). Increases in cyclic AMP are associated with relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle and inhibition of release of hypersensitivity mediators from mast cells in the lungs.

Absorption

Peak plasma concentrations are achieved within 10 minutes of inhalation. Absolute bioavailability was found to be 27.3% when administered by inhalation, whereas oral bioavailability was found to be less than 2% due to extensive first-pass metabolism. Systemic exposure is 24% higher in patients with COPD as compared to healthy subjects.

Volume of distribution

Following IV administration to healthy subjects, the mean volume of distribution at steady state was 661 L.

Protein binding

Binding to plasma protein was 93.9%.

Metabolism

Vilanterol is principally metabolized by cytochrome p450 3A4 (CYP3A4) to a range of metabolites with significantly reduced beta1- and beta2-agonist activity. The major route of metabolism was via O-dealkylation, with up to 78% of the recovered dose eliminated as O-dealkylated metabolites while N-Dealkylation and C-dealkylation were minor pathways, representing 5% of the recovered dose.

Route of elimination

Following oral administration, vilanterol is eliminated mainly by metabolism by CYP3A4 followed by excretion of metabolites in urine (70%) and feces (30%).

DrugInteraction
AbacavirAbacavir may decrease the excretion rate of Vilanterol which could result in a higher serum level.
AbametapirThe serum concentration of Vilanterol can be increased when it is combined with Abametapir.
AbataceptThe risk or severity of adverse effects can be increased when Abatacept is combined with Vilanterol.
AcarboseAcarbose may decrease the excretion rate of Vilanterol which could result in a higher serum level.
AcebutololThe therapeutic efficacy of Vilanterol can be decreased when used in combination with Acebutolol.
AceclofenacAceclofenac may decrease the excretion rate of Vilanterol which could result in a higher serum level.
AcemetacinAcemetacin may decrease the excretion rate of Vilanterol which could result in a higher serum level.
AcetaminophenAcetaminophen may decrease the excretion rate of Vilanterol which could result in a higher serum level.
AcetazolamideAcetazolamide may increase the excretion rate of Vilanterol which could result in a lower serum level and potentially a reduction in efficacy.
Acetylsalicylic acidAcetylsalicylic acid may decrease the excretion rate of Vilanterol which could result in a higher serum level.
