Novartis Identifier:
First received: January 16, 2007
Last updated: June 21, 2007
Last verified: June 2007
The purpose of this study is to assess the change in inspiratory capacity and lung function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease when treated with indacaterol compared to placebo and formoterol.

Condition Intervention Phase
COPD Drug: Indacaterol (QAB149) Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Exploratory, Double-Blind Comparison of Inspiratory Capacity (IC) and FEV1 in COPD Patients Following Single Dose Administration of Indacaterol and Placebo and Open Label b.i.d. Administration of Formoterol

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in IC and percent predicted FEV1 at various timepoints over 24 hours

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent predicted FEV1 time course change over 24 hours
  • Mean maximal change in IC time course change over 24 hours

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: September 2006

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male and post-menopausal female adults aged 40-80 years inclusive.
  • Patients with a clinical diagnosis of COPD according to the Global Initiative for Chronic Lung Disease (GOLD) Guidelines (2005)
  • Smoking history of at least 10 pack years (either smokers or ex-smokers).
  • Able to perform reproducible spirometry maneuvers.
  • Able to communicate well with the investigator, to understand and comply with the requirements of the study. Understand and sign the written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • COPD exacerbations within 6 weeks prior to dosing
  • Concomitant lung disease such as asthma, requirement for long term oxygen treatment or history of lung reduction surgery.
  • Medical conditions that would interfere with the performance of spirometry or may pose a potential hazard from performing spirometry.
  • Any other medical condition that in the opinion of the Investigator may cause the patient to be unsuitable for completion of the study or place the patient at potential risk from being in the study, e.g. uncontrolled hypertension, unstable ischemic heart disease.
  • Participation in any clinical investigation within 4 weeks prior to dosing or longer if required by local regulations, and for any other limitation of participation based on local regulations.

Other protocol-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply
