Phase 3

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) After 2 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: Day 15 (after 2 weeks of treatment) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Spirometry was conducted according to internationally accepted standards. The trough FEV1 was defined as the average of the FEV1 measurements taken at 23 hours 10 minutes and 23 hours 45 minutes post dose. The mixed model used baseline FEV1 and FEV1 prior to and 30 minutes post inhalation of albuterol as covariates.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) After 1 Day of Treatment [ Time Frame: Day 2 (after 1 day of treatment) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Spirometry was conducted according to internationally accepted standards. The trough FEV1 was defined as the average of the FEV1 measurements taken at 23 hours 10 minutes and 23 hours 45 minutes post dose on day 2. The mixed model used baseline FEV1 and FEV1 prior to and 30 minutes post inhalation of albuterol as covariates.
