Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: January 6, 2021)

Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: January 6, 2021)
  • Change from baseline in pre-bronchodilator (BD) forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    FEV1 is the volume of air exhaled in the first second of a forced expiration as measured by spirometer.
  • Change from baseline in post-BD FEV1 at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    FEV1 is the volume of air exhaled in the first second of a forced expiration as measured by spirometer.
  • Change from baseline in pre-BD FEV1 at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    FEV1 is the volume of air exhaled in the first second of a forced expiration as measured by spirometer.
  • Time to first moderate or severe AECOPD [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 52 ]
    Time to first moderate or severe AECOPD over the 52 week placebo-controlled treatment period.
  • Annualized rate of severe AECOPD [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 52 ]
    Annualized rate of severe AECOPD over the 52 week placebo-controlled treatment period.
  • Time to first severe AECOPD [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 52 ]
    Time to first severe AECOPD over the 52-week placebo-controlled treatment period.
  • Annualized rate of corticosteroid-treated AECOPD [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 52 ]
    Annualized rate of corticosteroid-treated AECOPD over the 52-week placebo-controlled treatment period.
  • Change from baseline in Evaluating Respiratory Symptoms in COPD (E-RS:COPD) total score at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    The E-RS: COPD is administered as a part of the 14-item EXACT questionnaire and is completed on a daily basis.The 11-item E-RS:COPD assesses severity of respiratory symptoms overall and severity of individual symptoms such as breathlessness, cough and sputum, and chest symptoms The total score of E-RS:COPD ranges from 0 to 40, with higher values indicating more severe respiratory symptoms.
  • Rate of change in post-BD FEV1 (L) from baseline (post-BD FEV1 slope) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 52 ]
    FEV1 is the volume of air exhaled in the first second of a forced expiration as measured by spirometer.
  • Change from baseline in St. George''s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) total score at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    The SGRQ is a 50-item questionnaire designed to measure and quantify health status in adult participants with chronic airflow limitation. A global score ranges from 0 to 100. Scores by dimension are calculated for 3 domains: Symptoms, Activity and Impacts (Psycho-social) as well as a total score. A lower score indicates better quality of life.
  • Proportion of participants with a decrease from baseline of at least 4 points in SGRQ total score at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    The SGRQ is a 50-item questionnaire designed to measure and quantify health status in adult participants with chronic airflow limitation. A global score ranges from 0 to 100. Scores by dimension are calculated for 3 domains: Symptoms, Activity and Impacts (Psycho-social) as well as a total score. A lower score indicates better quality of life.
  • Incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs), adverse event of special interests (AESIs), serious adverse events (SAEs), and adverse events (AEs) leading to permanent treatment discontinuation [ Time Frame: Baseline up to end of study (Week 72) ]
  • Incidence of potentially clinically significant laboratory test, vital signs, and electrocardiogram (ECGs) abnormalities [ Time Frame: Baseline up to end of study (Week 72) ]
  • Functional itepekimab concentrations in serum [ Time Frame: Baseline up to end of study (Week 72) ]
  • Incidence of treatment-emergent anti-itepekimab antibodies responses [ Time Frame: Baseline up to end of study (Week 72) ]
