Relatively little information is available about the effects of salmeterol/fluticasone combination and fluticasone alone in COPD patients with a partial reversible pulmonary obstruction. The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of salmeterol/fluticasone combination with fluticasone alone delivered via Diskus/ACCUHALER inhaler in subjects with COPD on lung function over a 1 year period.

Condition Intervention Phase
Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive
Drug: fluticasone propionate/salmeterol 250/50 DISKUS combination product
Drug: fluticasone propionate DISKUS 500mcg

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Difference in efficacy of a 12 months treatment with salmeterol/fluticasone combination versus fluticasone on lung function (FEV1) as percentage predicted.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Reversibility of lung function with salbutamol and on Forced Vital capacity (FVC), TLC, FRC, FVC, Inspiration capacity(IC), Forced Inspiratory Volume in 1 second (FIV1) and Maximum mid-Expiratory Flow (MEF50).

Estimated Enrollment: 290
Study Start Date: November 2003
Intervention Details:
    Drug: fluticasone propionate/salmeterol 250/50 DISKUS combination product Drug: fluticasone propionate DISKUS 500mcg
    Other Name: fluticasone propionate/salmeterol 250/50 DISKUS combination product
Detailed Description:
Multi-centre, double-blind, randomised and stratified parallel group study to compare the efficacy and safety of fluticasone propionate 500 mcg bd versus salmeterol/fluticasone combination 50/250 mcg bd both via Diskus inhaler during 1 year in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease(COPD) patients with a partially reversible obstruction.

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 80 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria:

  • Established history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • Lung function parameters: FEV1/FVC ratio < 70%, FEV1 between 80% and 30% predicted, a reversibility of airway obstruction of 12% of the initial value with a minimum of 200 mL.
  • Signed and dated informed consent.

Exclusion criteria:

  • History of asthma or allergy.
  • Unstable COPD in the 3 months before the study.
  • Interference of non-pulmonary medication or diseases with COPD outcome parameters.
