A Single-dose Study to Investigate the Effects of 3 Different Doses of Inhaled AZD2115 in COPD Patients

This study has been completed.

First received: December 21, 2011
Last updated: October 25, 2012
Last verified: October 2012
This study in COPD patients will investigate the bronchodilatory effect of AZD2115. AZD2115 will be tested versus placebo and active comparators. The safety and tolerability of AZD2115 including investigations of clinically relevant systemically mediated effects will also be investigated.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: AZD2115
Drug: Placebo
Drug: Indacaterol
Drug: Indacaterol + Tiotropium
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo and Active Controlled, Multi-centre, 6 Way Cross-over, Single-dose Phase IIa Study to Investigate the Local and Systemic Effects of 3 Different Doses of Inhaled AZD2115 in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Peak Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1) defined as the maximum FEV1 from the spirometry assessments [ Time Frame: During the first 24 hours following administration ]
  • Trough FEV1defined as the average FEV1 from the spirometry assessments [ Time Frame: During 22 to 26 hours following administration ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Average FEV1 [ Time Frame: FEV1 0-24h post-dose ]
  • Peak, average and trough Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) [ Time Frame: FVC peak and average 0-24h post-dose and trough 22-26h post-dose ]
  • Systemic effect by assessment of blood pressure (BP) [ Time Frame: Peak and average 0-4 h post dose ]
  • Systemic effect by assessment of heart rate (HR) and QT interval corrected for heart rate using Fridericia's formula (QTcF) [ Time Frame: Peak and average 0-4 h post dose ]
  • Systemic effect by assessment of Potassium and Glucose [ Time Frame: Peak and average 0-4 h post dose ]
  • Safety and tolerability of 3 different single doses of AZD2115 [ Time Frame: At screening, during 0-26 h post-dose and at follow-up ]
  • Plasma concentrations of AZD2115 after 3 different single doses measured as area under the curve over the time (AUC) and maximum concentration (Cmax), and time to maximum concentration (tmax) [ Time Frame: 0-24h post dose ]

Enrollment: 39

Detailed Description:
A randomised, double-blind, placebo and active controlled, multi-centre, 6 way cross-over, single-dose Phase IIa study to investigate the local and systemic effects of 3 different doses of inhaled AZD2115 in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Provision of informed consent prior to any study specific procedures
  • Male or female of non-childbearing potential (post-menopausal or surgically sterilised), age ≥40 years at Visit 1
  • Clinical diagnosis of COPD for more than 1 year at Visit 1, according to GOLD guidelines
  • Post-bronchodilator FEV1 ≥ 40 to < 80% of the predicted normal value and post-bronchodilator FEV1/FVC < 70%
  • Reversible airway obstruction

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Significant disease or disorder which, in the opinion of the Investigator, may either put the patient at risk because of participation in the study, or influence the result of the study, or the patient's ability to participate in the study.
  • An exacerbation of COPD within 6 weeks prior to Visit 1
  • Treatment with systemic glucocorticosteroids with 6 weeks of Visit 2.
  • Recent or ongoing respiratory tract infection during enrolment period.
  • Need for long-term oxygen therapy and/or saturation O2 < 92%.
