This study is primarily a safety study. The primary and secondary endpoints are based on 24-hour Holter monitor assessments obtained on Day 14 relative to baseline.

Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Drug: PT005 MDI
Drug: PT001 MDI
Drug: PT003 MDI
Drug: Formoterol Fumarate 12 μg (Foradil® Aerolizer®)
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Parallel Group, 14-day, Multi-Center Study to Evaluate the Safety of PT003, PT005, PT001 and Foradil® Aerolizer® (12 µg, Open Label) as Evaluated by Holter Monitoring, in Patients With Moderate to Severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Mean Heart Rate Average Over 24 Hours Post-dose [ Time Frame: 14 days ]
    The primary safety objective of this study is to compare the change in mean heart rate averaged over 24 hours post-dose, following twice daily dosing over 14 days with PT003 MDI, PT005 MDI, PT001 MDI or Foradil Aerolizer compared to baseline in patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Characterization of additional cardiovascular safety parameters [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
    The secondary objective of the study is to further characterize additional cardiovascular safety parameters of all treatment groups including the maximum 24-hour heart rate, mean night-time and day-time heart rate, ventricular ectopic events, ventricular couplets, ventricular runs, the number of supraventricular runs, and sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT), supraventricular ectopic events, and other clinically relevant arrhythmias (such as atrial fibrillation).
