Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm 1 Drug: Ciprofloxacin (PulmoSphere, BAYQ3939)
32.5 mg ciprofloxacin betaine corresponding to 50 mg Ciprofloxacin PulmoSphere inhalation powder will be given as an initial single-dose inhalation (day 0).During the multiple-dose phase (day 2 to day 11), the same dose will be given twice daily, with a concluding single dose (on day 12)
Experimental: Arm 2 Drug: Ciprofloxacin (PulmoSphere, BAYQ3939)
48,75 mg ciprofloxacin betaine corresponding to 75 mg Ciprofloxacin PulmoSphere inhalation powder will be given as an initial single-dose inhalation (day 0).During the multiple-dose phase (day 2 to day 11), the same dose will be given twice daily, with a concluding single dose (on day 12)
Placebo Comparator: Arm 3 Drug: Placebo
Placebo inhalation powder will be given as an initial single-dose inhalation (day 0).During the multiple-dose phase (day 2 to day 11), placebo will be given twice daily, with a concluding single dose (on day 12)

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 75 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult patients with COPD, 40 to 75 years of age
  • Diagnosis of COPD
  • Airway obstruction with a post-bronchodilator Forced Expiratory Volume (FEV1) of >/=30% and </=65% of predicted and a post-bronchodilator FEV1 / Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) of </=70%
  • Current or ex-smokers with a smoking history of more than 10 pack-years
  • Patients must be able to produce acceptable induced sputum samples (as defined in the Study Procedure Manual)
  • Normal body weight: Body Mass Index (BMI) between 19 and 35 kg/m2

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Significant respiratory disease other than COPD as bronchial asthma, Cystic fibrosis or clinically evident bronchiectasis
