Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary objective will be to evaluate whether once daily treatment with 5 mcg or 10 mcg BI 1744 administered via the Respimat device is superior to once daily treatment with Placebo Respimat using FEV1 AUC values [ Time Frame: 6 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Additional Pulmonary Measures with FEV1, FVC, FEV1 AUC. [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Vital Signs [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Clinical Labs [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • ECG [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • The secondary objective will be to compare once daily treatment with 5 mcg or 10 mcg BI 1744 administered via the Respimat device to twice daily treatment with Foradil Aerolizer using FEV1 AUC values. [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
