Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the fourth leading cause of death worldwide and is projected to be the third by 2020. COPD is characterized by chronic airflow limitation caused by airway inflammation and parenchymal destruction that is usually progressive. Inhaled bronchodilators continue to be the mainstay of the current management of COPD. Safety and efficacy data of the recently approved medications including aclidinium, glycopyrronium, roflumilast, and indacaterol are reviewed here.

This is the second time I have submitted a paper to Palliative Care: Research and Treatment for possible publication. In both instances, my experience with Libertas Academica was very good from submission to acceptance. The peer reviewers' comments were insightful, very constructive, and extremely helpful. The author interface was user-friendly. The publishing process was fast and convenient. I highly recommend this journal.
