Study Population
Patients 40 years of age or older with at least one pharmacy claim for FSC during the index date range (July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006). An index date was designated as the date of the first pharmacy claim for FSC. Patients were also required to have continuous medical and pharmacy eligibility for the 12 month pre-Index year and the 12 month Index year (referred to as the 24 month observation period), and the 3 month post-Index outcome period (referred to as the outcome period). Eligible patients were further required to have at least one medical claim with a diagnosis (either primary or secondary) of COPD (ICD-9-CM code 490.xx, 491.xx, 492.xx, and 496), AND at least 1 pharmacy claim for an anticholinergic medication, both occurring during the12 month pre-index period.
Criteria

INCLUSION CRITERIA

  • at least one pharmacy claim for Advair (any strength; Diskus or MDI) during the index year (July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006).
  • Continuous medical and pharmacy eligibility for the 12 month Pre-Index year and the 12 month Index year (referred to as the 24 month Observation Period), and the 3 month Post-Index period (referred to as the Outcome Period).
  • At least one medical claim with a diagnosis (either primary or secondary) of COPD (ICD-9 code 490.xx, 491.xx, 492.xx, and 496), AND at least 1 pharmacy claim for an Anticholinergic medication, both occurring during the12 month pre-index period.
