Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) After 12 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: after 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Spirometry was conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Trough FEV1 was defined as the average of the 23 hour 10 minute and 23 hour 45 minute post-dose FEV1 readings. Mixed model used baseline FEV1, FEV1 prior to and 10-15 minutes post inhalation of albuterol, and FEV1 prior to and 50-70 minutes post inhalation of ipratropium as covariates.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Transition Dyspnoea Index (TDI) Focal Score After 12 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: after 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    TDI focal score is based on three domains: functional impairment, magnitude of task and magnitude of effort. Each domain is scored from -3 (major deterioration) to 3 (major improvement) to give an overall TDI focal score of -9 to 9 with a negative score indicating a deterioration from baseline. A 1 unit difference in the TDI focal score is clinically significant. Mixed model used baseline dyspnoea index, FEV1 prior to and 10-15 minutes post inhalation of albuterol, and FEV1 prior to and 50-70 minutes post inhalation of ipratropium as covariates.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Indacaterol 75 µg

Indacaterol 75 µg inhaled once daily in the morning via Concept1, a single dose dry powder inhaler (SDDPI), for 12 weeks.

Daily inhaled corticosteroid treatment (if applicable) was allowed to remain stable throughout the study. The short acting (beta) β2-agonist (SABA) albuterol was available for rescue use throughout the study.

Drug: Indacaterol
Once daily via single-dose dry powder inhaler (SDDPI)
Placebo Comparator: Placebo

Placebo to indacaterol inhaled once daily in the morning via Concept1, a SDDPI, for 12 weeks.

Daily inhaled corticosteroid treatment (if applicable) was allowed to remain stable throughout the study. The short acting (beta) β2-agonist (SABA) albuterol was available for rescue use throughout the study.

Drug: Placebo to indacaterol
Once daily via SDDPI
