Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1) Area Under Curve (AUC) 0-24 Hours on Day 14 [ Time Frame: From Day 1 to 0-24 hours after drug administration on Day 14 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) was calculated as the volume of air forcibly exhaled in one second as measured by a spirometer. This outcome measures the change is FEV1 from predose (day 1) to the readings taken 0-24 hours post dose on day 14. The variable was analyzed with an analysis-of-covariance model which included baseline FEV1 value as a covariate.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1) AUC 0-12 Hours on Day 14 [ Time Frame: From day 1 to 0 -12 hours after drug administration on Day 14 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) was calculated as the volume of air forcibly exhaled in one second as measured by a spirometer. This outcome measures the change is FEV1 from pre-dose (day 1) to the readings taken 0-12 hours post dose on day 14. The variable was analyzed with an analysis-of-covariance model which included baseline FEV1 value as a covariate.

  • Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1) AUC 12-24 Hours on Day 14 [ Time Frame: From Day 1 to 12 hours-24 hours after drug administration on Day 14 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) was calculated as the volume of air forcibly exhaled in one second as measured by a spirometer. This outcome measures the change is FEV1 from pre-dose (day 1) to the readings taken 12-24 hours post dose on day 14. The variable was analyzed with an analysis-of-covariance model which included baseline FEV1 value as a covariate.

  • Number of Participants Who Experienced Adverse Events (AEs), Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 14 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    According to FDA 21CFR 314.80, a serious adverse event (SAE) is described as any adverse event that leads to death, is life threatening , causes or prolongs hospitalization, results in a congenital anomaly, or any other important medical event not described above. See Adverse Events module for details.
