Effectiveness and Safety of BIO-11006 Inhalation Solution to Treat the Overproduction of Mucus and Inflammation in COPD

2014-07-24 14:18:15 | BioPortfolio


The symptoms associated with COPD include overproduction of mucus and inflammation in the lungs. Overproduction of mucus results in impaired lung function and it encourages bacterial growth and associated COPD exacerbations. Therefore, a treatment that inhibits mucus overproduction or blocks inflammation could benefit COPD patients. The drug under evaluation in this study, BIO-11006 Inhalation Solution, is a new drug that may inhibit overproduction of mucus and may have important anti-inflammatory properties.


COPD encompasses a number of chronic lung disorders that obstruct the airways and may be accompanied by airway hyperactivity. The most common form of COPD is a combination of chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Many of the signs and symptoms associated with chronic bronchitis are a result of airway mucus hypersecretion induced by chronic inflammation of the airways. Clinically, mucus hypersecretion results in impaired gas exchange and compromised mucociliary clearance, encouraging bacterial colonization and associated exacerbations. A treatment that inhibits mucus hypersecretion or blocks inflammation could benefit COPD patients with chronic bronchitis. The drug under evaluation in this study, BIO 11006, is a new therapeutic agent that may inhibit mucus secretion and may have important anti inflammatory properties. In this study, BIO-11006 will be administered to COPD patients with chronic bronchitis, and the effects lung function will be assessed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inhalation of oxygen aimed at restoring toward normal any pathophysiologic alterations of gas exchange in the cardiopulmonary system, as by the use of a respirator, nasal catheter, tent, chamber, or mask. (From Dorland, 27th ed & Stedman, 25th ed)

A variety of devices used in conjunction with METERED DOSE INHALERS. Their purpose is to hold the released medication for inhalation and make it easy for the patients to inhale the metered dose of medication into their lungs.

Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).

Gases or volatile liquids that vary in the rate at which they induce anesthesia; potency; the degree of circulation, respiratory, or neuromuscular depression they produce; and analgesic effects. Inhalation anesthetics have advantages over intravenous agents in that the depth of anesthesia can be changed rapidly by altering the inhaled concentration. Because of their rapid elimination, any postoperative respiratory depression is of relatively short duration. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p173)

The pressure required to prevent the passage of solvent through a semipermeable membrane that separates a pure solvent from a solution of the solvent and solute or that separates different concentrations of a solution. It is proportional to the osmolality of the solution.
