We are currently recruiting Mild Asthmatics who are using the Blue sulbutamol inhaler (Ventolin), only.
The study involves a stay of 15 nights in our unit with one outpatient visit and one follow up visits. Total duration of the study is 18 days.
Start dates are flexible so please call us to see if we can work around your calander.
The main purpose of the study is to see how safe the Study Drug is and how well it is tolerated after dosing.
The study will also investigate:
• How the Study Drug is taken up, metabolised (chemically broken down), distributed through the body and excreted, this is called the pharmacokinetics (PK) of the Study Drug.
• How the body is affected by the Study Drug, this is called the pharmacodynamics (PD) of the Study Drug.
• Try to understand why different people respond differently to the same drug through DNA testing (please refer to the separate informed consent form for genetic testing).The sponsor is developing the study drug as a treatment for asthma. Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways that makes breathing difficult. The study drug works by preventing the formation of certain proteins by the immune system, which cause inflammation (swelling), and so reducing the symptoms of asthma.
This is a first time in human study.
