Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Heart rate [ Time Frame: Change from baseline in heart rate during 5-day ivabradine and 5-day placebo treatment (24-hour ECG monitoring on the 3rd day) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Difference in mean heart rate during ivabradine and placebo treatment


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) [ Time Frame: Everyday measurement of morning and evening PEFR during 5-day ivabradine and 5-day placebo treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Difference in mean daily PEFR during ivabradine and placebo treatment

  • Symptoms [ Time Frame: Everyday symptom scoring during 5 day ivabradine and 5-day placebo treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Difference in mean daily symptom score between ivabradine and placebo treatment

  • Rescue medication [ Time Frame: Everyday rescue medication usage assessments during 5-day ivabradine and 5-day placebo treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Difference in mean daily rescue medication use between ivabradine and placebo treatment

  • Number of participants with adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Number of patients with AEs evaluated throughout the study (5-day ivabradine and 5 day placebo treatment) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Difference in number of participants with AEs between ivabradine and placebo treatment


Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: May 2009
Study Completion Date: January 2011
Primary Completion Date: January 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Ivabradine-Placebo Drug: Ivabradine (Procoralan)
Ivabradine 7,5 mg b.i.d. for 5 days and Placebo b.i.d. for 5 days (Ivabradine-Placebo)
Active Comparator: Placebo-Ivabradine Drug: Placebo
Placebo b.i.d. for 5 days and Ivabradine 7,5 mg b.i.d. for 5 days (Placebo-Ivabradine)

Detailed Description:

In this double blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study, 20 asthmatics and 20 COPD patients received ivabradine 7,5 mg b.i.d. and placebo for 5 days in crossover manner. HR in ECG holter monitoring, peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), symptoms, rescue medication consumption and AEs were evaluated in both periods of treatment.
