A Dose Range Finding Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of AZD9668 Administered Orally at Three Dose Levels to Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) on Treatment With Tiotropium

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
AstraZeneca
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00949975

  Purpose
The primary objective is to evaluate the dose-response relationship and efficacy of AZD9668 at 3 dose levels compared with placebo in symptomatic COPD patients by assessing effects on lung function and symptoms of COPD.

Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Drug: AZD9668 Drug: AZD9668 Placebo Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A 12-week, Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel Group, Multinational, Phase IIb Dose Range Finding Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of AZD9668 Administered Orally at 3 Dose Levels to Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) on Treatment With Tiotropium
