  Purpose

This 4-week clinical study evaluates the efficacy and safety of Albuterol Sulfate HFA Inhalation Aerosol in comparison with the Active Control, Proventil-HFA (3M Pharmaceuticals, Inc) in pediatric patients (4-11 years old) with mild-to-moderate asthma. In addition, pharmacokinetic profile in this population will be evaluated using a population PK approach with sparse blood samples.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary endpoint for efficacy evaluation is to obtain the ratio of the geometric mean of area under the curve of change in FEV1%versus time for pediatric patients using the study drug to the active reference drug. [ Time Frame: visits 1 and 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC of serial FEV1 volume changes from the Same Day Baseline versus time, during the 6-hr post-dose. [ Time Frame: each visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to onset of bronchodilator effect, determined by linear interpolation as the time point when FEV1 first exceeded 12.0% over the respective Same Day Baseline. [ Time Frame: each visist ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The peak bronchodilator response, Fmax, defined as the maximum FEV1 (% change from the Same Day Baseline). [ Time Frame: each visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The time to peak bronchodilator response (FEV1), with Fmax defined as the maximum FEV1 (% change from the Same Day Baseline). [ Time Frame: each visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Duration of bronchodilator effect, defined as the total duration when FEV1 is maintained greater than or equal to 12.0% above the respective Same Day Baseline values. [ Time Frame: each visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • (6) Percentage of positive responders including those whose FEV1 exceed the Same-Day Baseline by greater than or equal to 12.0% at or before 30 min post-dose (quick responders), and at any time during the entire 6 hr post-dose (overall responders). [ Time Frame: each visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetic parameters including Cmax, AUC, and t1/2, based on a population pharmacokinetic (PPK) approach with sparse blood samples, conducted at Clinical Visit 3. [ Time Frame: visit 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Requirements for rescue/concomitant medications, for each treatment group [ Time Frame: end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean Overall Asthma Control Scores evaluated by investigators [ Time Frame: end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Total daytime asthma symptom scores [ Time Frame: end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Nighttime sleep disturbance scores [ Time Frame: end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Morning and evening pre-dose Peak Expiratory Flow Rate (PEF). [ Time Frame: end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of asthma exacerbations during the entire study period [ Time Frame: end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Vital signs (SBP/DBP, and heart rate) will be monitored at: 1. baseline (prior to dosing), and; 2. 60 minutes post-dose, but before the 60 min FEV1 tests. 3. 360 minutes post-dose, but before the 360 min FEV1 tests. [ Time Frame: Screening, visits 1 and 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • A 12-lead ECG (HR, QT and QTc intervals) recorded at: 1. pre-dose, and; 2. 60 minutes post-dose, but before the 60 min FEV1 tests. [ Time Frame: Screening and visits 1 and 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • lab tests for CBC, blood metabolic panel, and urinalysis. [ Time Frame: Pre-study and end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Physical examinations [ Time Frame: Screening and end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Blood potassium levels [ Time Frame: Screening and EOS for all subjects; and at 120+15 min post dose (Visit 3) for population PK subjects only ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Study compliance and safety will be reviewed. Concomitant medications will be reviewed and recorded [ Time Frame: All Study Visits ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Adverse events, whether observed by investigators or reported by subjects, will be documented and followed up if deemed necessary. [ Time Frame: At All Study Visits ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
