Safety And Tolerability Study In Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
GSK233705 is a high-affinity specific muscarinic receptor (mAChR) antagonist which is being developed for once daily treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The long duration of action of GSK233705 when administered via inhalation in animal models supports the potential for use as a once-daily bronchodilator for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

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)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of GSK233705B compared with placebo in subjects with COPD.
GSK233705 is a high-affinity specific muscarinic receptor (mAChR) antagonist which is being developed for once daily treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The long du...
The safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics/efficacy profiles of two different doses of GSK233705 will be compared with 2 active comparators and placebo, all medication...
GSK233705 is being developed for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This will be an open-label, dose-ascending study in 7 healthy male subjects to establish well toler...
GW642444 and GSK233705 are in development for treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Development of these two inhaled drugs as a combination therapy would have potential for i...
The chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a highly undiagnosed disease. The use of short screening questionnaires designed to detect chronic airflow obstruction may help to the early diagnos...
Our goal was to estimate the number of individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the Capital Region of Denmark and the need of resources required to implement the regional manag...
Lung transplantation (LT) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a procedure with a high rate of morbimortality. The aim of this paper is to analyze the early and late rates of complicatio...
INTRODUCTION: Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) often suffer from comorbidities. This study evaluates the need for hospitalization due to comorbidity in COPD patients and the...
ABSTRACT Exacerbations are important events in the natural history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The higher the number of COPD exacerbations, the worse are the clinical and economic...
