Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
All eligible patients were randomized to one of the 2 arms in a 1:1 ratio for 26 weeks of treatment.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
A total of 523 patients were randomized. A total of 522 patients (99.8%) were included in the Full analysis Set (FAS) and Safety set. One patient was excluded who was randomized in error and did not receive study medication.

  Hide Outcome Measure 1

Measure Type Primary
Measure Title Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second Area Under the Curve (FEV1 AUC) 0-12
Measure Description Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) was calculated as the volume of air forcibly exhaled in one second as measured by a spirometer. FEV1 was normalized by 12 hours (divided by time). This outcome measures absolute values at week 26. Results are obtained from linear mixed model.
Time Frame Week 26  
Safety Issue No  

Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
The Full Analysis Set (FAS) included all randomized patients who received at least one dose of study drug. FAS were used to analyze all efficacy endpoints, unless otherwise stated. Following the intention-to-treat principle, patients in the FAS were analyzed according to the treatment they were randomized to.
