  Purpose

The aim of this pilot study is to assess the methodology, practical arrangements and pulmonary absorption with charcoal blockage for the future bioequivalence studies. In addition, PK of budesonide and formoterol after administration from 2 different batches of Symbicort TH is compared with each other.
