2014-08-27 03:54:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary objective of this study is to investigate the efficacy of levalbuterol 90 ug (2 actuations, 45 ug each) versus placebo (2 actuations) in the treatment and prevention of bronchoconstriction in adolescent and adult subjects with asthma, with all treatments administered 4 times a day (QID).

Description

A double-blind, randomized, placebo- and active-controlled, multicenter, parallel-group trial of levalbuterol in subjects 12 years of age and older with asthma. Study participation will include one 1-week single-blind placebo run-in and an 8-week, randomized,double-blind, active-treatment period with four treatment groups.

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.
