Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) 24 Hours Post-dose at the End of the Study (Week 2 + 1 Day, Day 15) [ Time Frame: 24 hours post-dose at the end of the study (Week 2 + 1 day, Day 15) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Trough FEV1 was defined as the average of measurements made 23 hours 10 minutes and 23 hours 45 minutes post-dose at the end of treatment. The analysis included baseline FEV1, FEV1 pre-dose and 10-15 minutes post-dose of salbutamol/albuterol during screening, and FEV1 pre-dose and 1 hour post-dose of ipratropium during screening as covariates.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) 24 Hours Post-dose on Day 2 [ Time Frame: 24 hours post-dose on Day 2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Trough FEV1 was defined as the average of measurements made 23 hours 10 minutes and 23 hours 45 minutes post-dose on Day 2. The analysis included baseline FEV1, FEV1 pre-dose and 10-15 minutes post-dose of salbutamol/albuterol during screening, and FEV1 pre-dose and 1 hour post-dose of ipratropium during screening as covariates.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Indacaterol 18.75 μg
Patients inhaled indacaterol 18.75 μg once daily in the morning via the Concept1 single-dose dry-powder inhaler (SDDPI). In addition, patients inhaled placebo to salmeterol twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening, via the manufacturer's proprietary Diskus inhaler. Treatment continued for 2 weeks.
