Last verified: November 2012
This study will assess and compare the safety and tolerability of inhaled TPI 1020 (repeated nominal doses; 500 μg BID x 6 weeks) versus inhaled budesonide (repeated doses; 800 μg BID x 6 weeks) and a matching placebo. Pharmacodynamic (PD) activity on FEV1, sputum and blood cells and cytokines will also be studied.

Further study details as provided by Pharmaxis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the airway specific, and general safety and the tolerability of inhaled TPI 1020 administered via Aerolizer™ in COPD patients. • To assess the effects of TPI 1020 versus those of budesonide on sputum neutrophil counts on Days 0 and 42. [ Time Frame: 42 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Sputum neutrophil counts on Days 0 and 21. • Trough FEV1, SVC and IC on Days 0, 21 and on Day 42. • eNO levels on Days 0, 21 and on Day 42. [ Time Frame: 42 days ]

Detailed Description:
A multi-centre, randomized, placebo and active-controlled, 6-week study of inhaled TPI 1020, inhaled budesonide or matching placebo (random allocation of eligible patients to the three treatments at a ratio of 3:3:1), to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacodynamic activity of TPI 1020 in 42 evaluable COPD subjects.

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Outpatients, male or female, smoker or ex-smoker (who quit at least a year ago) with a smoking history equal or greater than 10 pack years.
  • Age between 40 and 80 years old with a diagnosis (for at least 12 months) of mild to moderate COPD

Exclusion Criteria:

  • COPD exacerbations indicated by a treatment with oral or systemic glucocorticosteroids and/or hospitalization and/or clinically relevant respiratory infection requiring antibiotics within 3 month of the start of the study.
  • Failure to produce a sufficient sputum sample during the screening sputum induction procedure, required for TCC and differential cell count determination.
