Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) Standardized (With Respect to Length of Time) Area Under the Curve (AUC) From 5 Minutes to 8 Hours Post-dose at the End of the Study (Week 12, Day 84) [ Time Frame: From 5 minutes to 8 hours post-dose at the end of the study (Week 12, Day 84) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Measurements were made at 5 and 30 minutes; and 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 hours post-dose at the end of the study (Week 12, Day 84). The standardized AUC FEV1 was calculated as the sum of trapezoids divided by the length of time. The analysis included baseline FEV1, FEV1 pre-dose and 10-15 minutes post-dose of salbutamol/albuterol during screening, and FEV1 pre-dose and 1 hour post-dose of ipratropium during screening as covariates.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) 24 Hours Post-dose at the End of the Study (Week 12 + 1 Day, Day 85) [ Time Frame: End of the study (Week 12 + 1 day, Day 85) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Trough FEV1 was defined as the average of measurements made 23 hours 10 minutes and 23 hours 45 minutes post-dose at the end of the study. The analysis included baseline FEV1, FEV1 pre-dose and 10-15 minutes post-dose of salbutamol/albuterol during screening, and FEV1 pre-dose and 1 hour post-dose of ipratropium during screening as covariates.

  • Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) Standardized (With Respect to Length of Time) Area Under the Curve (AUC) From 5 Minutes to 8 Hours Post-dose on Day 1 [ Time Frame: From 5 minutes to 8 hours post-dose on Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Measurements were made at 5 and 30 minutes; and 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 hours post-dose on Day 1. The standardized AUC FEV1 was calculated as the sum of trapezoids divided by the length of time. The analysis included baseline FEV1, FEV1 pre-dose and 10-15 minutes post-dose of salbutamol/albuterol during screening, and FEV1 pre-dose and 1 hour post-dose of ipratropium during screening as covariates.

  • Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) 24 Hours Post-dose on Day 2 [ Time Frame: 24 hours post-dose on Day 2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Trough FEV1 was defined as the average of measurements made 23 hours 10 minutes and 23 hours 45 minutes post-dose on Day 2. The analysis included baseline FEV1, FEV1 pre-dose and 10-15 minutes post-dose of salbutamol/albuterol during screening, and FEV1 pre-dose and 1 hour post-dose of ipratropium during screening as covariates.

  • Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) Standardized (With Respect to Length of Time) Area Under the Curve (AUC) From 5 Minutes to 4 Hours Post-dose on Day 1 [ Time Frame: From 5 minutes to 4 hours post-dose on Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Measurements were made at 5 and 30 minutes; and 1, 2, 3, and 4 hours post-dose on Day 1. The standardized AUC FEV1 was calculated as the sum of trapezoids divided by the length of time. The analysis included baseline FEV1, FEV1 pre-dose and 10-15 minutes post-dose of salbutamol/albuterol during screening, and FEV1 pre-dose and 1 hour post-dose of ipratropium during screening as covariates.

    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Measurements were made at 5 and 30 minutes; and 1, 2, 3, and 4 hours post-dose at the end of the study (Week 12, Day 84).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Indacaterol 150 μg and tiotropium 18 μg
Patients inhaled indacaterol 150 μg and tiotropium 18 μg once daily in the morning between 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM for 12 weeks. Indacaterol was delivered blinded via a single-dose dry-powder inhaler (SDDPI). Tiotropium was delivered open-label via the manufacturer's proprietary inhalation device (HandiHaler®). Daily inhaled corticosteroid treatment (if applicable) was to remain stable throughout the study. The short-acting β2-agonist salbutamol/albuterol was available for rescue use throughout the study.
