  Purpose

This study is a randomized, active- and placebo-controlled, single-dose, seven-arm, crossover and dose-ranging design. This study aims to evaluate the efficacy and initial safety profiles, and to identify the optimum dose of A006, from a select dose-range for future clinical PK/PD and Phase III studies. This study is to be conducted in generally healthy, adult subjects who have mild-to-moderate persistent asthma for at least 6 months prior to Screening.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC [ Time Frame: 5, 20, 40, 60, 90; 120, 180, 240, and 360 minutes post-dose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Area under the curve (AUC) of post-dose FEV1 percentage changes from the Pre-dose Baseline. The primary analysis of the primary endpoint is to compare the AUC0-t of FEV1, between the A006 treatments and the Placebo Control.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to Effect [ Time Frame: 0 to 360 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to onset of bronchodilator effect

  • Peak Response [ Time Frame: 0 - 360 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    peak bronchodilator response

  • Duration [ Time Frame: 0 - 360 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of effect

  • Response Rate [ Time Frame: 0 - 360 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Bronchodilatory Response Rate

  • Hand Tremor [ Time Frame: within 5 min. prior to dosing and 50 and 360 min post-dose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Evaluation of hand tremor

  • Vital Signs [ Time Frame: within 15 min. prior to dosing, and 30, 90 and 360 min post-dose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Pulse, heartrate, respirations, blood pressure

  • 12 lead ECG [ Time Frame: within 15 min. prior to dosing and at 50 and 360 min postdose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    12-lead ECG for routine and QT/QTc evaluations

  • Blood Work [ Time Frame: within 15 min. prior to dosing, and 30 and 120 min. postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Collect blood samples (~5 mL) for serum glucose and K+ tests
