GlaxoSmithKline PLC (GSK.LN) and Innoviva Inc. (INVA) said Thursday that their Trelegy Ellipta inhaler, which treats patients living with uncontrolled asthma, met the primary endpoint in a phase 3 study.

The pharmaceutical companies said the study showed a statistically significant improvement in lung function at 24 weeks of once-daily treatment with Trelegy Ellipta compared with other medication.

However, the drug didn't achieve a statistically significant reduction in the annualized rate of asthma exacerbations, which was the secondary endpoint of the trial, the companies said.
