Drug: Indacaterol
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Study of the Predictive Value of Airway Obstruction Reversibility on the Effectiveness of Indacaterol (Onbrez® Breezhaler ®) 150 mcg Once Daily in Patients With Moderate to Severe COPD

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Coefficient of correlation between FEV1 and reversibility [ Time Frame: After 1 month ]
    Coefficient of correlation between the change from baseline in FEV1 with indacaterol after 1 month and the reversibility to salbutamol at screening

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Coefficient of correlation between VQ11 (an assessment of quality of life) and reversibility [ Time Frame: 5 months ]
    Coefficient of correlation between the change from baseline in VQ11 with indacaterol after 5 months and the reversibility to salbutamol at screening

Enrollment: 625

Study Completion Date: May 2012
Primary Completion Date: May 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
