    Effects comparison of indacaterol to placebo in terms of the patient-centric measurement St George's Respiratory Questionnaire for COPD (SGRQ- C) total score after 12 weeks of treatment.

  • Comparison of Forced Expiratory Volume in one second between indacaterol and tiotropium groups [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Comparison of indacaterol to tiotropium using Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in one second.

  • St George's Respiratory Questionnaire for COPD total score comparison between treatments [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Effects comparison of indacaterol to tiotropium in terms of St George's Respiratory Questionnaire for COPD (SGRQ- C) total score after 12 weeks of treatment.

  • Adverse events and serious adverse events for all treatment groups [ Time Frame: week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    All adverse events will be reported

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with stable Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Groups A or B according to GOLD 2011.
  • Patients with a post-bronchodilator Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) ≥50% and <80% of the predicted normal, and post-bronchodilator FEV1/ Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) < 0.7
  • Patients with no record of receipt of maintenance medication for COPD.
  • Patients with a mMRC dyspnea score ≥1 at Visit 2.
  • Current or ex-smokers who have a smoking history of at least 10 pack years.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who have not achieved acceptable spirometry results at run-in, in accordance with American Thoracic Society (ATS) / European Respiratory Society (ERS) criteria for acceptability and repeatability.
  • Patients who have had 2 or more COPD exacerbations that required treatment with antibiotics, systemic steroids (oral or intravenous) or hospitalization in the 12 months prior to Visit 1.

  • Patients with a) any history of asthma, or b) onset of respiratory symptoms prior to age 40 years.
  • Patients with allergic rhinitis who use a H1-antagonist or intra-nasal corticosteroids intermittently. Treatment with a stable dose is permitted.
  • Patients with concomitant pulmonary disease (e.g., lung fibrosis, sarcoidosis, interstitial lung disorder, pulmonary hypertension) or active pulmonary tuberculosis
  • Other protocol-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply.
