Multi-Center Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of PT003, PT005, and PT001 in Subjects With Moderate to Very Severe COPD (PINNACLE 2)


About this study

This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel group, chronic-dosing (24 weeks), placebo-controlled study to assess the efficacy and safety of Glycopyrrolate (GP and Formoterol Fumarate (FF) combination metered-dose inhaler (MDI) (GFF; PT003), GP MDI (PT001), and FF MDI (PT005) compared with Placebo MDI in subjects with moderate to very severe COPD.

  • Poorly controlled COPD, defined as acute worsening of COPD that requires treatment with oral corticosteroids or antibiotics within 6 weeks prior to screening or during the Screening Period
  • Lower respiratory tract infections that required antibiotics within 6 weeks prior to screening or during the Screening Period
  • Unstable ischemic heart disease, left ventricular failure, or documented myocardial infarction within 12 months of enrollment.
  • Recent history of acute coronary syndrome, percutaneous coronary intervention, coronary artery bypass graft within the past three months
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF NYHA Class III/IV)
  • Clinically significant abnormal 12-lead ECG
  • Abnormal liver function tests defined as AST, ALT, or total bilirubin ≥ 1.5 times upper limit of normal at Visit 1 and on repeat testing
