Summary

This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of two dosages of a new drug TPI ASM8 administered by inhalation for 14 days to mild to moderate asthmatic patients, aged between 18-65, non-smokers . The study will also look at the nature and quantity of inflammatory white cells in the lung secretions and in the blood, and some additional inflammation markers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

Drugs that are used to treat asthma.

A beta-adrenergic agonist used in the treatment of asthma and bronchospasms.

Adrenergic beta-2 agonist used as bronchodilator for emphysema, bronchitis and asthma.
