  • Has a morning clinic pre-bronchodilator FEV1 measured at least 6 hours after the last dose of inhaled short acting beta agonist of greater than or equal to 70% and less than or equal to 95% of predicted normal
  • Demonstrated reversibility of FEV1 of ≥12% from pre short acting beta agonist level within 15 to 30 minutes after administration of a standard dose of short acting beta agonist OR has a documented reversibility of ≥ 12 % within 12 months prior to Visit 2.

Exclusion Criteria:
