A Comparative Study Between Fluticasone Furoate/Umeclidinium/Vilanterol (FF/UMEC/VI) Single Inhaler Triple Therapy Versus Tiotropium Monotherapy in Subjects With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)


Brief description of study

COPD is a progressive disease characterized by increasing obstruction to airflow and the progressive development of respiratory symptoms including chronic cough, increased sputum production, dyspnea and wheezing. Once-daily triple therapy of an Inhaled Corticosteroid/ Long-acting Muscarinic Receptor Antagonists/ Long Acting Beta-Agonist (ICS/LAMA/LABA) that is combination of FF/UMEC/VI in a single device is being developed with the aim of providing a new treatment option for the management of advanced COPD. The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate lung function and health related quality of life (HRQoL) after 84 days of treatment with a single inhaler triple therapy combination of FF/ UMEC/VI once daily via the ELLIPTA dry powder inhaler (DPI) compared with tiotropium once daily via HANDIHALER, in subjects with COPD. Subjects will be randomized 1:1 to receive FF/UMEC/VI or tiotropium in the morning for 84 days. Subjects will also receive albuterol/salbutamol as a rescue therapy throughout the study. Approximately 848 subjects with advanced COPD will be enrolled in the study. The total study duration will be approximately 17 weeks including, 4-week run-in period, 12-week treatment period and a 1-week follow-up period.
