This study is a first administration to man microdose study to describe the pharmacokinetics of GSK2239633.
The different shapes of the pharmacokinetic (PK) profiles following administration of GSK2239633 in rat and dog make it difficult to reliably predict the human PK profile. This microdose study will provide an early readout on the distribution and clearance profile of the drug in man and will be used to model potential clinical oral doses. The study will be conducted using an open-label, single dose design in one group of healthy male volunteers. Each subject will receive a single intravenous infusion of 100ug GSK2239633 (containing approximately 10kBq of [14C]-GSK2239633), administered over 15 minutes. Subjects will attend for a screening visit within 30 days prior to Day 1 and receive a single dose infusion of study drug on Day 1. Blood and urine samples will be taken over 48 hours for pharmacokinetic and total radioactivity analysis, and safety and tolerability will be monitored. Subjects will be discharged on Day 3 and a follow-up telephone call will be made 4-10 days post-dose.

Asthma often debuts in early life (1). During childhood, the prevalence of asthma is higher in boys, but prevalence is higher in girls after puberty (2). The goal of asthma treatment is to achieve and...
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.
