Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Absolute monocyte count and leucocyte differential in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BAL) [ Time Frame: Visits at defined time points over the 11 day treatment for routine safety monitoring ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Inflammatory cell infiltrate and inflammatory phenotype in endobronchial biopsies [ Time Frame: Bronchial biopsies collected for evaluation at Visit 4 and 5. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) biomarker concentrations in BAL and blood [ Time Frame: Blood samples for biomarkers collected at visits 2 to 6 and BAL collected at Visits 4 and 5. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • AZD2423 concentration in plasma assessed by: Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax), time to Cmax, Area under the plasma concentration-time curve at steady state from zero to 24h (AUCt) [ Time Frame: Multiple PK samples from Visit 3 to Visit 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Only women of non-child bearing potential are included in the study i.e. women who are permanently or surgically sterilised or post menopausal.
  • ≥ 40 years of age at Visit 1
  • Clinical diagnosis of COPD (GOLD stage 1)
  • FEV1 ≥ 80% of the predicted normal post-bronchodilator at Visit 1 (GOLD stage 1)
  • FEV1/FVC <70% post-bronchodilator at Visit 1 (GOLD stage 1)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any clinically significant disease or disorder which, in the opinion of the Investigator, may either put the subject at risk or influence the way the drug works
  • Any clinically relevant abnormal findings in physical examination, blood or urine test results, vital signs or ECG at Visit 1 that may put the subject at risk during the study, affect their ability or take part or influence the results of the study
  • A past history or current indication of renal (kidney) failure
  • Subjects at risk of active tuberculosis or of disease reactivation
  • Subjects who have had any clinically significant illness within 4 weeks before Visit 2 (start of treatment)
