Safety And Tolerability Study In Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
GSK233705 is a high-affinity specific muscarinic receptor (mAChR) antagonist which is being developed for once daily treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The long duration of action of GSK233705 when administered via inhalation in animal models supports the potential for use as a once-daily bronchodilator for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
A Randomised, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Dose Ascending, 3 Period Crossover Study To Examine The Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacodynamics And Pharmacokinetics Of Repeat Inhaled Doses Of GSK233705B In COPD Subjects.

Subject diagnosed with COPD, as defined by the GOLD guidelines
Body weight greater than 50kg
Subject is a smoker or an ex-smoker with a smoking history of at least 10 pack years (1 pack year = 20 cigarettes smoked per day for 1 year or equivalent).
Subject has FEV1/FVC < 0.7 post-bronchodilator (salbutamol).
Subject has FEV1 greater than or equal to 80% of predicted normal for height, age and gender after inhalation of 200 µg salbutamol.
Response to ipratropium bromide defined as:
Either: An increase in FEV1 of =12% and =150 mL at 2 h following inhalation of 80 ug of ipratropium bromide at the screening visit
or: a documented increase in FEV1 of =12% and =150 mL at 2 h following inhalation of 80 ug of ipratropium bromide within 6 months of screening and an increase in FEV1 of >6% and >100ml 2h following inhalation of 80 ug of ipratropium bromide at the screening visit (in order to allow for potential fluctuations in the response to ipratropium bromide in patients known to be responders to ipratropium bromide).
