Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the dose-response of different doses of CHF 5259 pMDI on lung function and other clinical outcomes, to identify the optimal dose(s) in terms of benefit/ risk ratio for further development in the target subject population.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
COPD Drug: CHF 5259 Drug: Placebo Drug: Tiotropium Bromide 18 MCG Inhalation Capsule Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a phase II, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo and active controlled dose-ranging 6-arm parallel group study to identify the optimal dose of CHF 5259 pMDI with respect to lung function and other clinical efficacy and safety outcomes.

After a 2 week run-in period under rescue albuterol and background ICS as needed, patients will be randomized to one of the 6 study treatment groups. Following randomization, subjects will be assessed after 3 weeks and 6 weeks of study treatment at the center. A follow-up phone call will be performed a week after the last visit.

During the study, daily symptoms, rescue and background medication use and compliance with the study drug will be recorded via a subject diary. Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) will be assessed and recorded throughout the study. At screening and subsequent visits, subjects will undergo physical and vital signs examinations, spirometry measurements, and 12-lead ECG. Symptoms and COPD health status will be assessed through validated questionnaires. Routine hematology, blood chemistry, and pregnancy testing will be performed before enrollment and at end of study. 24-hour digital recording of ECGs (Holter) will be performed before and after the first dose and just before the last dose of study treatment.
