Further study details as provided by Boehringer Ingelheim:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Trough forced expiratory volume (FEV1) response after four weeks of treatment. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Trough FEV1 response after 1 and 2 weeks [ Time Frame: after 1 and 2 weeks ]
  • Trough FVC response after 1, 2 and 4 weeks [ Time Frame: after 1, 2 and 4 weeks ]
  • FEV1, FVC AUC0-6h and peak response after 0, 1, 2 and 4 weeks [ Time Frame: after 0, 1, 2 and 4 weeks ]
  • Individual FEV1 and FVC measurements at each time point [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  • Weekly mean pre-dose morning and evening PEFR [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  • Weekly mean number of occasions of rescue therapy used per day [as occasion requires (PRN) albuterol] [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  • COPD symptom scores (wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing and tightness of chest) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  • Physician's Global Evaluation [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  • All adverse events [ Time Frame: 7 weeks ]
  • Pulse rate and blood pressure (seated) recorded in conjunction with spirometry up to the three hour pulmonary function test (PFT) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  • 12-lead ECGs at baseline (-10 minutes) and at 25 minutes, 2 and 6 hours post dose (Visits 2 and 5) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  • drug plasma concentrations [ Time Frame: 4 or 7 weeks ]
  • drug urine concentrations [ Time Frame: 4 or 7 weeks ]

  1. Patients must have relatively stable, moderate to severe airway obstruction with an FEV1 >=30% and <= 60% of predicted normal and FEV1 <=70% of FVC at the baseline PFTs at Visit 1 (at both timepoints).
  2. All patients must have an increase in FEV1 of at least 12% from baseline (th e -10 minute measurement) 45 min after inhalation of 80 ?g Atrovent MDI.
  3. Male or female patients 40 years of age or older.
  4. Smoker or ex-smoker with a history of more than 10 pack years.

1. Patients with any other significant disease will be excluded. 2. Patients with a history of asthma or allergic rhinitis will be excluded.
