1.Primary Outcome
Title Change From Baseline in Forced Expiratory Volume (FEV1) Area Under the Curve (AUC) 0-24h
Hide Description FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. The standardized AUC FEV1 was calculated as the sum of trapezoids divided by the length of time over an entire day (AUC 0-24h). A positive change from baseline indicates improvement.
Time Frame baseline, 0 to 24 hours post-dose at week 12
Hide Outcome Measure Data
Hide Analysis Population Description
The full analysis, which included all randomized patients who received at least one dose of double-blind treatment, was considered for the analysis. Only participants with a value at both baseline and the post-baseline time point were included in the analysis.

Certain Agreements
Principal Investigators are NOT employed by the organization sponsoring the study.
There IS an agreement between Principal Investigators and the Sponsor (or its agents) that restricts the PI's rights to discuss or publish trial results after the trial is completed.
The terms and conditions of Novartis' agreements with its investigators may vary. However, Novartis does not prohibit any investigator from publishing. Any publications from a single-site are postponed until the publication of the pooled data (i.e., data from all sites) in the clinical trial or disclosure of trial results in their entirety.
