  Purpose

After screening, subjects will enter a 4 week open-label run-in period with fluticasone furoate (FF)/vilanterol (VI) 100/25 mcg administered once daily via dry powder inhaler (DPI). Subjects will then be randomized to receive any one of the 3 treatments (umeclidinium bromide [UMEC] [62.5 mcg] administered once daily via a DPI; OR UMEC [125 mcg] administered once daily via a DPI; OR matching placebo administered once daily via a DPI), while continuing treatment with open label FF/VI 100/25 mcg during a 12-week treatment period. There will be a total of eight scheduled clinic visits at Pre-Screening (Visit0), Screening (Visit 1), blinded treatment Day 1(Visit2), 2(Visit3), 28 (Visit4), 56 (Visit5), 84 (Visit6) and 85 (Visit7). A follow-up phone contact will be conducted approximately 7 days after the last clinic visit. The total duration of subject participation in the study from Screening to Follow-up will be approximately 17 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Trough FEV1 on Day 85 [ Time Frame: Day 85 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Trough FEV1 on Day 85 is defined as the mean of the FEV1 values obtained 23 and 24 hours after dosing on Day 84 (i.e., at Week 12). Baseline trough FEV1 is the mean of the two assessments made at -30 and -5 minutes pre-dose on Treatment Day 1.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Weighted mean (WM) 0-6 hour FEV1 obtained post-dose on Day 84 [ Time Frame: Day 84 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The weighted mean is calculated from the pre-dose FEV1 and post-dose FEV1 measurements at 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours and 6 hours.

  • Safety [ Time Frame: Day -28 (Screening) up to Follow up. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Safety measurements Incidence of adverse events (AE) Vital signs (pulse rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure) Incidence of COPD exacerbation will assessed

  • Health outcomes and Quality of Life [ Time Frame: Pre screening up to Follow up. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Quality of life was assessed by St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire for COPD Patients (SGRQ-C) and COPD Assessment Test (CAT).

Surgically sterile females are defined as those with a documented hysterectomy and/or bilateral oophorectomy or tubal ligation. Post-menopausal females are defined as being amenorrhoeic for greater than 1 year with an appropriate clinical profile, e.g., age appropriate, >45 years, in the absence of hormone replacement therapy.

OR

  • Child bearing potential, has a negative pregnancy test at screening, and agrees to one of the following acceptable contraceptive methods used consistently and correctly (i.e., in accordance with the approved product label and the instructions of the physician for the duration of the study - screening to follow-up contact):

  • Male partner sterilization (vasectomy with documentation of azoospermia) prior to the female subject's entry into the study, and this male is the sole partner for that subject. For this definition, "documented" refers to the outcome of the investigator's/designee's medical examination of the subject or review of the subject's medical history for study eligibility, as obtained via a verbal interview with the subject or from the subject's medical records.
  • Double barrier method: condom and an occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) with a vaginal spermicidal agent (foam/gel/film/cream/suppository)
  • Diagnosis: An established clinical history of COPD in accordance with the definition by the American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society.
  • Smoking History: Current or former cigarette smokers with a history of cigarette smoking of >=10 pack-years [number of pack years = (number of cigarettes per day / 20) x number of years smoked (e.g., 20 cigarettes per day for 10 years, or 10 cigarettes per day for 20 years)]. Former smokers are defined as those who have stopped smoking for at least 6 months prior to Visit 1. Pipe and/or cigar use cannot be used to calculate pack year history.
  • Severity of Disease: A pre and post-albuterol/salbutamol FEV1/FVC ratio of <0.70 and a pre and post-albuterol/salbutamol FEV1 of <=70% of predicted normal values at Visit 1 (Screening) calculated using Nutrition Health and Examination Survey (NHANES) III reference equations.

  • For subject eligibility and withdrawal, QTcF will be used.
  • For purposes of data analysis, QTcF will be used as primary.
  • The QTc should be based on single or averaged QTc values of triplicate electrocardiograms (ECGs) obtained over a brief recording period.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnancy: Women who are pregnant or lactating or are planning on becoming pregnant during the study.
  • Asthma: A current diagnosis of asthma.
  • Other Respiratory Disorders: Known alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, active lung infections (such as tuberculosis), and lung cancer are absolute exclusionary conditions. A subject who, in the opinion of the investigator, has any other significant respiratory conditions in addition to COPD should be excluded. Examples may include clinically significant bronchiectasis, pulmonary hypertension, sarcoidosis, or interstitial lung disease.
