Efficacy and Safety Study in Subjects With Asthma

2014-08-27 03:19:12 | BioPortfolio


The study is a multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of selected doses and dose intervals of the novel long acting beta agonist (LABA), GW642444 in asthmatic subjects ≥18 years of age who are currently receiving inhaled corticosteroid treatment.


The study will be a five-period cross-over study with each 7 day treatment period separated by a 7 day wash-out period. The study will enroll asthmatic subjects ≥18 years of age who are currently receiving inhaled corticosteroid treatment with an FEV1 of between 40-85% of predicted normal and with airway reversibility as demonstrated by an increase in FEV1 of ≥12% and ≥200ml .

Efficacy assessments include 24-hour serial lung function testing. Safety assessments include incidence of adverse events and measurement of vital signs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.

The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)

Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.

Radiotherapy where there is improved dose homogeneity within the tumor and reduced dosage to uninvolved structures. The precise shaping of dose distribution is achieved via the use of computer-controlled multileaf collimators.
