Brief Summary:
  • Primary objective is to evaluate time to onset of effect of formoterol, 9 μg single dose,compared with salmeterol, 50 μg single dose, in patients with moderate COPD.Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1) measured by spirometry 5 minutes postdose.
  • Secondary efficacy variables: Average FEV1 during the first 15 minutes (area under the FEV1 curve from 0 to 15 minutes), Average FEV1 during 120 minutes (area under the FEV1 curve from 0 to 120 minutes)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. FEV1(Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second) Measured by Spirometry 5 Minutes Post Dose [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and 5 minutes post-dose ]
    FEV1(Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second) measured by spirometry 5 minutes post dose, percentage change versus pre dose FEV1


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Average FEV1 During the First 15 Minutes Post Dose [ Time Frame: Pre dose and 15 minutes post dose ]
    Average FEV1 during the first 15 minutes post dose, change versus pre dose FEV1

  2. Average FEV1 During 120 Minutes Post Dose [ Time Frame: Pre dose and 120 minutes post dose ]
    Average FEV1 during 120 minutes post dose, change versus pre dose FEV1

  3. Percentage of Patients Who Has Achieved at Least 12 % Increase in FEV1 [ Time Frame: Pre dose, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 120 minutes post dose ]
    Percentage of patients who has achieved at least 12 % increase in FEV1 at each time point between 5 to 120 minutes post dose, change versus pre dose FEV1

  4. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: At baseline and at each day of treatment ]
    Number of participants with at least 1 AE.
