Brief Summary

Effect of CHF 6001 on biomarkers of inflammation in induced sputum and in blood, on pulmonary function and on symptoms benefits in comparison with placebo.

Detailed Description

The purpose of this study is to obtain information on the effects of two doses of CHF6001 on sputum and blood biomarkers of inflammation in subjects with symptomatic COPD with moderate, severe airflow limitation and with chronic bronchitis. The efficacy of the treatment will also be measured using forced oscillometry technique and spirometry. Safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics will be evaluated.

- Subjects with an established diagnosis of COPD (according to GOLD guidelines, update 2015) at least 12 months prior to the screening visit

- With a smoking history of at least 10 pack-years [pack-years=number of cigarettes per day x number of years/20]. Current and ex- smokers are eligible. With a BMI in the range of 18-35 Kg/m2 With a post-bronchodilator FEV1 ≥30% and ≤70%

- Subjects must be receiving daily maintenance with triple therapy (ICS plus LABA plus LAMA) at stable dose and dosing regimen, for at least 2 months prior to screening

- With a history of chronic bronchitis defined as chronic cough and sputum production for more than three months per year for two or more years and known as 'spontaneous sputum producer' subject

- Subjects must be symptomatic at screening defined as having a CAT score ≥10

- Subjects must be able to be trained to correctly use the DPI inhalers and They must have a cooperative attitude and ability to perform the required outcome measurements (e.g. spirometry testing, induced sputum...).

Exclusion Criteria:

- Pregnant or lactating female subject

- Subjects with a current diagnosis of asthma

- Subjects with a moderate or severe COPD exacerbation [i.e. resulting in the use of systemic (oral/IV/IM corticosteroids) and/or antibiotics or in hospitalisation] or a lower respiratory tract infection within 6 weeks prior to study entry or during the screening period

- Subjects on maintenance bronchodilators therapy only (LABA alone, LAMA alone, dual LABA/LAMA alone) or maintenance dual therapy only (ICS/LABA or ICS plus LAMA) within 2 months prior to study entry

- Subjects on PDE4 inhibitors (e.g. roflumilast) within 2 months prior to study entry

- Subjects requiring long-term (at least 12 hours daily) oxygen therapy for chronic hypoxemia; participating to a pulmonary rehabilitation programme or completing such a programme within the last 6 weeks prior to study entry

- Subjects with known respiratory disorders other than COPD...

- Subjects have lung cancer or a history of lung cancer or with active cancer or a history of cancer (other than lung) with less than 5 years disease free survival time

- Subjects with a known history of hypersensitivity to beta2-agonist, PDE4 inhibitors or any of the excipients contained in any of the formulations used in the trial

- Subjects with a diagnosis of depression associated with suicidal ideation or behaviour or with a diagnosis of generalised anxiety disorder that in the investigator's opinion would place the patient at risk
