  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of two doses of inhaled aclidinium bromide compared with placebo for 12 weeks in patients with moderate to severe, stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, followed by a 40 week evaluation of the higher Aclidinium Bromide dose. The study will be 56 weeks in duration; a 2-week run-in period followed by a 12-week double-blind, placebo-controlled treatment period. This will be followed by an open-label 40-week treatment period and a 2-week follow up phone call. All patients all patients will receive Aclidinium Bromide 400µg BID for the 40-week open label treatment period.
