The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of inhaled aclidinium bromide at two dose levels in patients with moderate to severe, stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The study will be 56 weeks in duration; a 2-week rin-in period, a 52-week treatment period and a 2-week follow up phone call. All patients will be randomized to one of two doses of aclidinium bromide.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Morning Pre-dose (Trough) Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1) [ Time Frame: From baseline to 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change From Baseline in Morning Predose (Trough) FEV1 in liters at Week 52.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Peak FEV1 [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change From Baseline in Peak FEV1 in liters at Week 52.
