About

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of the dry powder formulation of ASM-024 following single and multiple administration by inhalation of ascending doses in healthy subjects and subjects with stable moderate asthma.

Full description

This is a phase I/II, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of single ascending and multiple ascending doses of ASM-024 administered by dry powder inhalation to healthy subjects and subjects with stable moderate asthma. The goal of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic profile of a new, dry powder formulation of ASM-024. The doses that will be tested in subjects with asthma will be determined based on the information collected first in healthy volunteers. In addition to standard safety and tolerability evaluations, the acute effects of the study medication on the airways will be assessed.

  • Normal lung function; and
  • Normal 12-lead ECG

Asthmatics:

  • Male or female adult, 18 to 60 years of age with diagnosis of moderate asthma according to the GINA Guidelines and on regular inhaled corticosteroids with or without short or long-acting beta 2-agonists;
  • Non-smoker or former smoker;
  • FEV1 ≥ 70 % predicted in the absence of medications for asthma;
