- Pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca said its dual combination asthma treatment had been approved in China.

The company's anti-inflammatory reliever, Symbicort Turbuhaler, was approved in China as a treatment to 'achieve asthma control in patients with mild asthma aged 12 years and older,' the company said.

The approval was based on positive results from the SYGMA 1 and SYGMA 2 phase 3 trials, which evaluated the efficacy of Symbicort Turbuhaler taken as-needed as an anti-inflammatory reliever compared with standard of care therapies in mild asthma.
