  Purpose

This is a phase IV study of indacaterol 75 μg single-dose compared to placebo in moderate-severe COPD patients with breathing symptoms to assess time to patient's perception of onset of effect.


Condition Intervention Phase
COPD

Drug: placebo
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase IV, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Multicenter, Exploratory, Single-dose Crossover Study With Indacaterol 75 μg Compared to Placebo, Assessing Time to Patient's Perception of Onset of Effect in Patients With Moderate to Severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time (in Minutes) to Patient's Perception of Onset of Effect [ Time Frame: 5, 7.5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 minutes post dose for treatment 1 and treatment 2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Defined as the first time point that the patient responds "yes" to the following self-administered question:

    "I feel that the drug is working in improving my breathing?"

Placebo Comparator: placebo then indacaterol
In treatment 1, participants received placebo one dose delivered via SDDPI followed by treatment 2: indacaterol 75 µg one dose delivered via SDDPI between Day 7 and Day 10. Albuterol was available for use as rescue medication.
Drug: placebo

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who have had a COPD exacerbation requiring systemic corticosteroids and/or antibiotics and/or hospitalization in the 6 weeks prior to screening

    • Smoking history of at least 10 pack-years
    • Post-bronchodilator forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) ≤ 70% and ≥ 40% of the predicted normal value
    • Post-bronchodilator FEV1/FVC (forced vital capacity) < 70%
    • Breathing symptoms that interfere with daily activities

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who have had a COPD exacerbation requiring systemic corticosteroids and/or antibiotics and/or hospitalization in the 6 weeks prior to screening
  • Patients who have had a respiratory tract infection within 6 weeks prior to screening
  • Patients who require oxygen therapy for chronic hypoxemia, are receiving bronchodilators or other medications for COPD that are dosed once daily, are unable to follow instruction on rescue albuterol use during the study, or are at risk deterioration of COPD with study procedures. Patients with concomitant pulmonary disease
  • Patients with a history of asthma
  • Patients with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus
  • Any patient with lung cancer or a history of lung cancer
  • Patients with a history of certain cardiovascular co-morbid conditions

Other protocol-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply.
