Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change of several inflammatory or biochemical marker concentration in inducted sputum [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (2 periods each lasting 4 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Peripheral airway resistance and reactance measured by Impulse oscillometry system, and NO concentration. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (2 periods each lasting 4 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Monthly reduction in forced expiratory volume in 1 Second (FEV1) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (2 periods each lasting 4 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of life assessed by CAT (COPD Assessment Test) and ACT (Asthma Control Test) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (2 periods each lasting 4 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
