Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Post-hospitalization Study
This trial is a randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, multicenter study to be conducted in the United States. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the rate of exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) following hospital discharge for an acute exacerbation of COPD, in patients receiving either fluticasone propionate/salmeterol combination product 250/50mcg BID or salmeterol 50mcg BID via DISKUS™ over 29 weeks. The study population will include patients hospitalized for an acute exacerbation of COPD. The target enrolment is 720 subjects at 80 study centers. The primary endpoint is the rate of exacerbation requiring hospitalization that occur more than 21 days post-discharge, emergency room visit or physician's office visit for an exacerbation of COPD requiring treatment with oral corticosteroids or oral corticosteroids and antibiotics. The secondary endpoint is the rate of COPD exacerbation requiring treatment with oral corticosteroids, antibiotics, and/or hospitalization (alone and in combination). Related efficacy endpoints include, time to first exacerbation of COPD requiring treatment with oral corticosteroids, antibiotics, and/or hospitalization (alone and in combination), pre-dose AM FEV1, the probability of premature withdrawal of subject from the study, and supplemental albuterol use, change in biomarkers of inflammation, including, surfactant protein D (SP-D), clara cell secretory protein 16 (CC-16) and high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP). Health outcome assessments include domain scores evaluation for fatigue, dyspnea, emotional function and mastery, measured with the Chronic Respiratory Disease Questionnaire self-administered standardized format (CRQ-SAS); and symptoms (congestion, cough, phlegm, mucus, chest discomfort, shortness of breath and sleep disturbance), assessed by the EXAcerbations of Chronic pulmonary disease Tool (EXACT). Albuterol will be supplied to study subjects for use as-needed throughout the study. Safety will be assessed by monitoring of adverse events.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive
A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.
Pulmonary Heart Disease
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.
Sleep Apnea, Central
A condition associated with multiple episodes of sleep apnea which are distinguished from obstructive sleep apnea (SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE) by the complete cessation of efforts to breathe. This disorder is associated with dysfunction of central nervous system centers that regulate respiration. This condition may be idiopathic (primary) or associated with lower brain stem lesions; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (LUNG DISEASES, OBSTRUCTIVE); HEART FAILURE, CONGESTIVE; medication effect; and other conditions. Sleep maintenance is impaired, resulting in daytime hypersomnolence. Primary central sleep apnea is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea. When both forms are present the condition is referred to as mixed sleep apnea (see SLEEP APNEA SYNDROMES). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395; Neurol Clin 1996;14(3):611-28)
Plethysmography, Whole Body
Measurement of the volume of gas in the lungs, including that which is trapped in poorly communicating air spaces. It is of particular use in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and emphysema. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
