Brief Summary:
This is a Phase IIIa, multicenter, randomized, stratified (reversibility status), double-blind, parallel-group study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of FF/VI 100/25 micrograms (mcg) once daily (QD) compared with VI 25 mcg QD, administered in the morning via the ELLIPTA™ inhaler. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the contribution on lung function (as measured by trough forced expiratory volume in one second [FEV1]) of FF 100 mcg to the FF/VI 100/25 mcg QD combination by comparison of the latter with VI 25 mcg QD and the safety of FF/VI 100/25 mcg over a 12-week treatment period in subjects with COPD.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Change From Baseline (BL) in Clinic Visit Trough (Pre-bronchodilator and Pre-dose) FEV1, on Treatment Day 84 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Day 84 ]
    Pulmonary function was measured by forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), defined as the maximal amount of air that can be forcefully exhaled from the lungs in one second. Trough FEV1 measurements were taken electronically by spirometry on Days 2, 14, 28, 56 and 84. BL was defined as the mean of the assessments made 30 minutes pre-dose and immediately pre-dose on Treatment Day 1.Trough FEV1 was defined as the mean of the FEV1 values obtained 23 and 24 hours after previous morning's dosing. Change from BL was calculated as the average at each visit minus the BL value. Analysis was performed using a repeated measures model with covariates of treatment, reversibility status (stratum), BL, region, day, day by BL and day by treatment interactions.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Rescue-free 24-hour Periods Over the Entire 12-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: BL (Week -1), Week 1 to Week 12 ]
    Participants were given daily record cards for daily completion from BL (Week -1) through Week 12 (Visit 7) each morning and prior prior to taking study medication (i.e., single-blind and double-blind study medication), supplemental medication (albuterol [salbutamol] if received). Participants recorded number of occasions supplemental albuterol/salbutamol (MDI and/or nebules) or oxitropium bromide (applicable sites in Japan) used over the previous 24 hours and any medical problems that they had experienced and any medication used to treat these medical problems over the previous 24 hours. Rescue-free 24-hour periods are defined as the 24-hour periods in which the rescue medication (albuterol [salbutamol]) was not used. The percentage of 24-hour periods are summarized for the entire treatment period (12 weeks). Analysis was performed using an analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) model with covariates of treatment, reversibility status (stratum), baseline (week -1) and region.

  2. Time to First On-treatment Occurrence of Moderate or Severe COPD Exacerbation [ Time Frame: From the start of double blind study medication until visit 7 (week 12)/Early withdrawal ]
    Time to first on-treatment exacerbation was analysed using a Cox proportional hazards model with terms for treatment, reversibility status and percent predicted FEV1 at screening. Exacerbation of COPD is defined by a worsening of symptoms requiring additional treatment. Moderate COPD exacerbation is worsening symptoms of COPD that require treatment with antibiotics and/or systemic corticosteroids. Severe COPD exacerbation is worsening symptoms of COPD that require treatment with in-patient hospitalization. The number of participants with On-Treatment moderate or severe COPD exacerbations are presented.

The airflow limitation is usually progressive and is associated with an abnormal inflammatory response of the lungs to noxious particles or gases, primarily caused by cigarette smoking. Although COPD affects the lungs, it is also associated with significant systemic consequences.
