Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of Moderate or Severe COPD Exacerbations Per Patient Per Year. [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Rate of moderate or severe COPD exacerbations, defined as requiring oral or parenteral glucocorticosteroids (moderate) or requiring hospitalization and/or leading to death (severe), during the double-blind treatment period.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of COPD Exacerbations That Led to Hospitalization or Death (ie, Severe COPD Exacerbations) [ Time Frame: Week 0 (Visit 2) to Week 52 ]
    Rate of moderate or severe COPD exacerbations, defined as requiring hospitalization and/or leading to death (severe), during the double-blind treatment period.

  2. Rate of Moderate or Severe COPD Exacerbations or COPD Exacerbations Treated With Antibiotics [ Time Frame: Week 0 (Visit 2) to Week 52 ]
    Rate of moderate or severe COPD exacerbations treated with antibiotics during the double-blind treatment period.

  3. Mean Change in Predose Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) [ Time Frame: Week 0 (Visit 2) to Week 52 ]
    Mean change from randomization (Visit 2) over 52 weeks of treatment in predose forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1)

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • 1. Male or female patients at least 40 years of age
  • 2. History of COPD (according to Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease [GOLD] 2010) for at least 12 months prior to Screening (Visit 1) associated with chronic productive cough for 3 months in each of 2 consecutive years (with other causes of productive cough excluded). Only patients with chronic bronchitis will be included (concomitant emphysema is permitted)
  • 3. Forced expiratory volume after 1 second (FEV1)/forced vital capacity (FVC) ratio (postbronchodilator) < 70% at Screening (Visit 1)
  • 4. FEV1 (postbronchodilator) ≤ 50% of predicted at Screening (Visit 1)
  • 5. At least two documented moderate or severe COPD exacerbations within 12 months prior to Screening (Visit 1)
  • 6. Patients must be on FDC LABA/ICS treatment ≥ 3 months prior to Screening (Visit 1)
  • 7. Former smokers (defined as smoking cessation at least 1 year ago) or current smokers (including patients who ceased smoking within the past year) both with a smoking history of at least 20 pack-years

Exclusion Criteria:

  • 1. Moderate or severe COPD exacerbation and/or COPD exacerbations treated with antibiotics or systemic glucocorticosteroids within 4 weeks of Screening (Visit 1) (ie, patients must be clinically stable)
  • 2. Known alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency
  • 3. Current diagnosis of asthma (either controlled or uncontrolled) (Note: History of childhood asthma is not exclusionary.)
  • 4. Body mass index (BMI) ≥ 45 kg/m2
