Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under the formoterol plasma concentration-time curve over the dosing interval at steady state (AUCt,ss) [ Time Frame: Day 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum formoterol plasma concentration at steady state (Cmax,ss) [ Time Frame: Day 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under the formoterol plasma concentration-time curve over the dosing interval following a single dose (AUCt) [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum plasma concentration of formoterol following a single dose (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Current or former cigarette smokers with a cigarette smoking history of at least 10 pack-years
  • A diagnosis of stable moderate to severe COPD and stable airway obstruction as defined by the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease guidelines and stable airway obstruction.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any respiratory tract infection (including the upper respiratory tract) or COPD exacerbation in the six weeks before Screening
  • Patients with any clinically significant respiratory conditions other than COPD
  • Clinical history that suggests that the patient has asthma as opposed to COPD
  • Chronic use of oxygen therapy ≥ 15 hours/day
  • Patients with clinically significant cardiovascular conditions
  • Patients with a history of hypersensitivity reaction to inhaled anticholinergics, beta-2 agonists, sympathomimetic amines, or inhaled medications
