Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: QVA149
QVA149 study medication kit will contain blister strips and a unique inhaler. Patients will be instructed to inhale their medication twice a day for 12 weeks.
Drug: QVA149
QVA149 via inhaler twice a day

Active Comparator: fluticasone/salmeterol
Fluticasone/salmeterol study medication kit will contain an inhaler in the manufacturer's device. Patients will be instructed to inhale their medication twice a day for 12 weeks.
Drug: fluticasone/salmeterol
fluticasone/slameterol via inhaler twice a day




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area under the curve (AUC) 0-12 hours for FEV1 following 12 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Area under the curve (AUC) 0-12 hours for Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1) following 12 weeks of treatment. AUC will be calculated using the trapezoidal rule and standardized with respect to length of time from the first 5 minute to the last measurement at 12 hours.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1) following 12 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ]
    Spiromtery testing conducted according to internationally accepted standards. FEV1 is the amount of air which can be forcibly exhaled from the lungs in the first second of a forced exhalation, measured through spirometry testing. The trough FEV1 will be will be defined as the mean from repeat measurements at Day 1 and week 12.

  2. Transition Dyspnea Index (TDI) Focal Score [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Transition Dyspnea Index (TDI) captures changes from baseline. The TDI score is based on three domains with each domain scored from -3 (major deterioration) to +3 (major improvement), to give an overall score of -9 to +9, a negative score indicating a deterioration from baseline. A TDI focal score of 1 is considered to be a clinically significant improvement from baseline; negative scores indicate deterioration. A TDI focal score of 1 unit is considered to be a minimal clinically important difference (MCID) from baseline.

  3. Quality of Lfe Assessment with St George's Respiratory Questionaire (SGRQ) [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    SGRQ is a health related quality of life questionnaire consisting of 51 items in three components: symptoms, activity, and impacts. The lowest possible value is zero and the highest 100. Higher values correspond to greater impairment in quality of life. Change from baseline in total score will be assessed.

  4. Change from baseline in daily number of puffs of rescue medication [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Number of puffs of rescue medication in previous 12 hours is recorded in Patient Diary twice daily. The total number of puffs of rescue medication per day (daily use) over the active treatment period will be used to derive the mean daily number of puffs of rescue medication taken by the patient.

  5. Daily symptoms reported by patient [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Patient's daily symptoms will be recorded twice daily using a patient diary. Mean daily total symptom score, mean morning and evening symptom score for each patient will be calculated over the 12 week study period.

  6. COPD assessment (CAT) test [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    COPD assessment test (CAT) contains 8 questions regarding patient symptoms. Patient will complete questions using a 6 point scale and total score out of a possible score of 40 will be summed and reported.

  7. Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Over 12 weeks ]
    All adverse events and serious adverse events (SAEs) will be reported.

  8. Peak Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1) within 4 hours post-dose [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ]
    Spirometry testing conducted accorded to internationally accepted standards. Peak FEV1 defined as the maximum FEV1 during the first 4 hours post dosing. The Peak FEV1 will be defined as the mean from repeat measurements at Day 1 and week 12.

  9. Area under the curve (AUC) 0-4 hours for FEV1 [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Week 12 ]
    Area under the curve (AUC) 0-4 hours for Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1) at Day 1 and week 12. AUC will be calculated using the trapezoidal rule and standardized with respect to length of time from the first 5 minute to the last measurement at 12 hours.
