  • Subjects with a post-bronchodilator FEV1 ≥ 50% and < 80% of predicted normal for height, age and sex at Visit 1. Subjects will be assessed 30 (± 5) minutes after receiving salbutamol 400 μg.
  • Subjects with a normal echocardiogram at screening, as defined by the absence of clinically significant wall motion, chamber size or valvular abnormalities
  • The subject must be capable of giving informed consent and can comply with the study requirements and timetable.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Women who are pre-menopausal and of child-bearing potential.
  • Subjects weighing less than 50 kilograms (kg).
  • Subjects who are obese defined as having a body mass index (BMI) > 30.
  • Subjects with a current diagnosis of asthma.
  • Subjects who have required hospitalisation or treatment with oral corticosteroids and/or antibiotic therapy for acute worsening of COPD or lower respiratory tract infection in the 6 weeks prior to Screening.
  • Subjects who have received treatment with oral, intravenous, topical or intra-articular corticosteroids within 6 weeks of Screening or thereafter
  • Subjects with active tuberculosis, sarcoidosis or clinically overt bronchiectasis.
  • Subjects with a history of any type of malignancy with the exception of successfully treated squamous cell cancer of the skin.
  • Subjects with rheumatoid arthritis, connective tissue disorders and other conditions known to be associated with chronic inflammation (e.g. Inflammatory Bowel Disease).
  • Subjects with chronic infections (lasting longer than 6 months) such as gingivitis, periodontitis, prostatitis, gastritis, and urinary tract infections.
  • Subjects with any acute infection, sinus symptoms, or significant trauma (burns, fractures).
  • Subjects with clinically significant renal disease, diabetes mellitus/metabolic syndrome, hypertension or any other clinically significant cardiovascular, neurological, endocrine, or haematological abnormalities that are uncontrolled on permitted therapy.
  • Subjects who have participated in any GSK study/studies involving administration of COA.
  • The subject has a screening ECG parameters outside of ranges specified in protocol.
  • Subjects with hypoxaemia
  • Risk factors for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C infection at Screening (Visit 1).
  • Subjects who have undergone surgery including lung volume reduction surgery in the last six months or have conditions that prevent them from performing spirometry.
  • Subjects with a history (or suspected history) of alcohol misuse or any other recreational substance abuse.
  • Subjects who require treatment with any of the following from the start of the run-in period (Day -14) until the end of the treatment phase:
  • Inhaled corticosteroids

Subjects requiring medication between dosing and follow up may be excluded at the principal investigators discretion.
  • Subjects with any known hypersensitivity to salbutamol or ipratropium bromide.
  • Subjects who are participating or plan to participate in the active phase of a pulmonary rehabilitation programme during the study.
  • Subjects who have received an investigational drug within 30 days or within five drug half-lives of the investigational drug (whichever is longer).
  • Subjects with any clinically relevant abnormality detected by the assessments at Screening.
  • Subjects who have experienced an exacerbation during the run-in period requiring treatment with oral corticosteroids and/or macrolide antibiotics and/or hospitalisation.
