Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) at Day 337 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 337 ]
    Trough FEV1 is defined as the FEV1 measured at the -10 min time point at the end of the dosing interval (24 h post drug administration).

  • Time to First Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Exacerbation [ Time Frame: During actual study treatment period (planned Day 1 to Day 337) ]
    Time to first COPD exacerbation (defined as a complex of respiratory events/symptoms (increase or new onset) with a duration of 3 days or more requiring a change in treatment). Time is days from start of study treatment to onset of exacerbation.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) at Day 29 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 29 ]
    Trough FEV1 is the mean volume of air that can be forced out in one second after taking a deep breath approximately 24 hours after the last administration of study drug.

  • Change From Baseline in Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) at Day 169 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 169 ]
    Trough FEV1 is the mean volume of air that can be forced out in one second after taking a deep breath approximately 24 hours after the last administration of study drug.

  • Number of COPD Exacerbations Per Patient - Exposure Adjusted [ Time Frame: During actual study treatment period (planned Day 1 to Day 337) ]
    Number of COPD exacerbations (defined as a complex of respiratory events/symptoms (increase or new onset) with a duration of 3 days or more requiring a change in treatment) per patient adjusted by length of treatment exposure (i.e. number of exacerbations multiplied by 365.25 and then divided by days of treatment exposure)

  • Number of COPD Exacerbations Per Patient - naïve Estimate [ Time Frame: During actual study treatment period (planned Day 1 to Day 337) ]
    Number of COPD exacerbations (defined as a complex of respiratory events/symptoms (increase or new onset) with a duration of 3 days or more requiring a change in treatment) per patient not adjusted for treatment exposure (i.e. naïve estimate)

  • Number of Patients With at Least One COPD Exacerbation [ Time Frame: During actual study treatment period (planned Day 1 to Day 337) ]
    Number of patients with at least one COPD exacerbation (defined as a complex of respiratory events/symptoms (increase or new onset) with a duration of 3 days or more requiring a change in treatment)

  • Time to First Hospitalisation for COPD Exacerbation [ Time Frame: During actual study treatment period (planned Day 1 to Day 337) ]
    Time to first hospitalisation for COPD exacerbation (a complex of respiratory events/symptoms (increase or new onset) with a duration of 3 days or more requiring a change in treatment). Time is days from start of study treatment to onset of exacerbation

  • Number of Hospitalisations for COPD Exacerbations Per Patient - Exposure Adjusted [ Time Frame: During actual study treatment period (planned Day 1 to Day 337) ]
    Number of hospitalisations for COPD exacerbations (a complex of respiratory events/symptoms (increase or new onset) with a duration of 3 days or more requiring a change in treatment) per patient adjusted by length of treatment exposure (i.e. no. of exacerbations multiplied by 365.25 and then divided by days of treatment exposure)

  • Number of Hospitalisations for COPD Exacerbations Per Patient - naïve Estimate [ Time Frame: During actual study treatment period (planned Day 1 to Day 337) ]
    Number of hospitalisations for COPD exacerbations (a complex of respiratory events/symptoms (increase or new onset) with a duration of 3 days or more requiring a change in treatment) per patient not adjusted for treatment exposure (i.e. naïve estimate)

  • Number of Patients With at Least One Hospitalisation for a COPD Exacerbation [ Time Frame: During actual study treatment period (planned Day 1 to Day 337) ]
    Number of patients with at least one hospitalisation for a COPD exacerbation (a complex of respiratory events/symptoms (increase or new onset) with a duration of 3 days or more requiring a change in treatment)

  • Change From Baseline in Saint George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) Total Score at Day 337 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 337 ]
    The SGRQ total score measures quality of life on a continuous scale ranging from 0=best state to 100=worst state

  • Change From Baseline in Saint George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) Total Score at Day 169 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 169 ]

  • Change From Baseline in Saint George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) Domain Score at Day 337 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 337 ]
    The SGRQ domain score (symptom, activity and impact) measures quality of life on a continuous scale ranging from 0=best state to 100=worst state

  • Change From Baseline in Saint George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) Domain Score at Day 169 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 169 ]

  • Change From Baseline in Trough Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) at Day 29 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 29 ]
    Trough FVC is the mean maximum volume of air that can be forcibly expired from the lungs; measured approximately 24 hours after the last administration of study drug.

  • Change From Baseline in Trough Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) at Day 169 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 169 ]
    Trough FVC is the mean maximum volume of air that can be forcibly expired from the lungs; measured approximately 24 hours after the last administration of study drug.

  • Change From Baseline in Trough Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) at Day 337 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 337 ]
    Trough FVC is the mean maximum volume of air that can be forcibly expired from the lungs; measured approximately 24 hours after the last administration of study drug.

    Marked changes from baseline in vital signs (diastolic and systolic blood pressure (DBP and SBP) and pulse rate (PR)) at end of treatment.

    SBP - Increase means SBP >150 mmHg and an increase above baseline of >25 mmHg. SBP - Decrease means SBP <100 mmHg and a decrease below baseline of >10 mmHg.

    DBP - Increase means DBP >90 mmHg and an increase above baseline of >10 mmHg. DBP - Decrease means DBP <60 mmHg and a decrease below baseline of >10 mmHg.

    PR - Increase means PR >100 bpm and an increase above baseline of >10 bpm. PR - Decrease means PR <60 bpm and a decrease below baseline of >10 bpm.
