Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to investigate if the systemic drug exposure of at least 25 μg and perhaps 50 μg salmeterol presented as inhalation powder in PE capsules and administered via HandiHaler® 2 does not exceed that of 50 μg Serevent® Diskus® and to investigate safety and tolerability of salmeterol presented as inhalation powder in PE capsules and administered via HandiHaler® 2

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: Salmeterol capsule - low Drug: Salmeterol capsule - high Drug: Salmeterol via Serevent® Diskus® Phase 1

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. AUC0-∞ (area under the concentration-time curve of salmeterol in blood plasma over the time interval from 0 extrapolated to infinity) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]
  2. Cmax (maximum measured concentration of salmeterol in blood plasma) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. AUC0-tz (area under the concentration-time curve of salmeterol in plasma over the time interval from 0 to the time of the last quantifiable data point) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]
  2. AUCt1-t2 (area under the concentration time curve of salmeterol in plasma over the time interval t1 to t2) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]
  3. tmax (time from dosing to the maximum concentration of salmeterol in plasma) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]
  4. λz (terminal rate constant in plasma) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]
  5. t½ (terminal half-life of salmeterol in plasma) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]
  6. MRTih (mean residence time of salmeterol in the body after inhalational administration) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]
  7. CL/F (apparent clearance of salmeterol in the plasma after extravascular administration) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]
  8. Vz/F (apparent volume of distribution during the terminal phase (λz) following an extravascular dose) [ Time Frame: up to 8 hours after drug administration ]
  9. Number of patients with abnormal changes in laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: up to 14 days following the last drug administration ]
  10. Number of patients with clinically significant changes in vital signs [ Time Frame: up to 14 days following the last drug administration ]
    Blood Pressure, Pulse Rate

  11. Number of patients with clinically significant changes in 12-lead ECG parameters [ Time Frame: up to 14 days following the last drug administration ]
  12. Number of patients with adverse events [ Time Frame: up to 14 days following the last drug administration ]
  13. Assessment of tolerability by investigator on a 4-point scale [ Time Frame: 14 days following the last drug administration ]
