Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Patients Experiencing Adverse Events [ Time Frame: At all study visits ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of patients who had an Adverse Event


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Forced Expiratory Volume 1 (FEV1) [ Time Frame: Before treatment and after 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in (FEV1) from baseline to end of treatment

  • Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) [ Time Frame: Before treatment and after 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in FVC from baseline to end of treatment

  • Vital Capacity (VC) [ Time Frame: Before treatment and after 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in VC from baseline to end of treatment

  • Inspiratory Capacity (IC) [ Time Frame: Before treatment and after 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from IC baseline to end of treatment

  • Forced Expiratory Flow (FEF) 25%-75% [ Time Frame: Before treatment and after 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in FEF from baseline to end of treatment

  • Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) Morning [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in and treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from average during run-in to average during treatment

  • Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) Evening [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in and treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in PEF from average during run-in to average during treatment

  • The Clinical COPD ( Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) Questionnaire (CCQ) Total [ Time Frame: Before treatment and after 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline to end of treatment in score , The total scores vary between 0 (never/not limited at all) to 6 (almost all the time/totally limited)

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptoms, Breathlessness [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in and treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from average during run-in to average during treatment. Scores on a Scale, 5-point Likert-type scale, ranging from 0 (none) to 4 (severe).

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptoms, Chest Tightness [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in and treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from average during run-in to average during treatment. Scores on a Scale, 5-point Likert-type scale, ranging from 0 (none) to 4 (severe).

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptoms, Cough Score [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in and treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from average during run-in to average during treatment. Scores on a Scale, 5-point Likert-type scale, ranging from 0 (none) to 4 (severe).

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptoms, Sleep Score [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in and treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from average during run-in to average during treatmentScores on a Scale, 5-point Likert-type scale, ranging from 0 (none) to 4 (severe).

  • 6-minute Walk Test [ Time Frame: Before treatment and after 4 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline to end of treatment
