The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
AstraZeneca
  Purpose
The primary purpose of the study is to investigate if Symbicort is more effective than Oxis in increasing forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), measured at the clinics, in patients with COPD.

Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Drug: Budesonide/formoterol (Symbicort Turbuhaler) Drug: Formoterol (Oxis Turbuhaler) Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase III, 12-week, Double-blind, Randomised, Parallel-group, Active-controlled, Multinational, Efficacy and Safety Study of Symbicort® Turbuhaler® 160/4.5 μg 2 Inhalations Twice Daily (Bid) Compared to Oxis® Turbuhaler® 4.5 μg 2 Inhalations Twice Daily (Bid) in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pre-dose Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1) [ Time Frame: Before randomization, 0, 4, 8 and 12 weeks after randomization ]
    The ratio, expressed as percentage, of the geometric mean of available data for Weeks 0, 4, 8 and 12 to the baseline for each treatment group


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 1 Hour Post Dose Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1) [ Time Frame: Before randomization, 0, 4, 8 and 12 weeks after randomization ]
    The ratio, expressed as percentage, of the geometric mean of available data for Weeks 0, 4, 8 and 12 to the baseline for each treatment group

  • Pre-dose Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) [ Time Frame: Before randomization, 0, 4, 8 and 12 weeks after randomization ]
    The ratio, expressed as percentage, of the geometric mean of available data for Weeks 0, 4, 8 and 12 to the baseline for each treatment group

  • 1 Hour Post-dose Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) [ Time Frame: Before randomization, 0, 4, 8 and 12 weeks after randomization ]
    The ratio, expressed as percentage, of the geometric mean of available data for Weeks 0, 4, 8 and 12 to the baseline for each treatment group

  • Percentage of Participants With Exacerbations [ Time Frame: Daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    A Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) exacerbation was defined as worsening in COPD symptoms requiring treatment with either a course of systemic steroid or hospitalisation. The percentage of participants who had experienced COPD exacerbation at the end of the study for each treatment group.

  • Number of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Exacerbation [ Time Frame: Daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    A Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) exacerbation was defined as worsening in COPD symptoms requiring treatment with either a course of systemic steroid or hospitalisation. Number of COPD exacerbation during 12-week randomization treatment

  • Morning Peak Expiratory Flow(PEF) [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group

  • Evening Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group

  • Total Number of Day With Exacerbation [ Time Frame: Daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    Total number of days with COPD exacerbation for each treatment group

  • Morning Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1) [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group

  • Evening Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1) [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group

  • Night-time Awakening Due to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptoms [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    Scored 0 to 1 (0 = no awakening and 1 = awakening). The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group

  • Breathlessness Due to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptoms [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    There are 5 alternatives (scored 0 to 4, with 4 being the most severe condition). The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group

  • Cough Due to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptoms [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    There are 5 alternatives (scored 0 to 4, with 4 being the most severe condition). The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group

  • Total Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptom Score [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    The Total COPD Symptom score is the sum of the measures night-time awakening, breathlessness and cough, ranges from 0 to 12 with 12 being the most severe. The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group.

  • Use of Rescue Medication [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group.

  • St George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) Total Score [ Time Frame: Daily during run-in period and daily during 12-week randomization treatment ]
    The change from Run-in period average to Treatment period average for each treatment group. The SGRQ ranges from 0 (no impairment of quality of life) to 100 (highest impairment of quality of life).
