Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) Standardized (With Respect to Time) Area Under the Curve (AUC) From 22 to 24 Hours Post-dose on Day 2 [ Time Frame: From 22 to 24 hours post-dose on Day 2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Measurements were made in each treatment period at 22, 23, and 24 hours post-dose on Day 2. Standardized FEV1 AUC was calculated by the trapezoidal rule. The analysis included patient, period, and treatment group as fixed effects and baseline FEV1 prior to drug administration in the treatment period as a covariate.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Peak Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) From 5 Minutes to 4 Hours Post-dose on Day 1 [ Time Frame: From 5 minutes to 4 hours post-dose on Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Measurements were made in each treatment period at 5, 15, and 30 minutes and 1, 2, and 4 hours post-dose on Day 1. The analysis included baseline FEV1 prior to drug administration in the treatment period as a covariate.

  • Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) by Time Point From 5 Minutes to 12 Hours Post-dose on Day 1 and From 22 to 24 Hours Post-dose on Day 2 [ Time Frame: From 5 minutes to 12 hours post-dose on Day 1 and from 22 to 24 hours post-dose on Day 2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Measurements were made in each treatment period at 5, 15, and 30 minutes and 1, 2, 4, 8, and 12 hours on Day 1 and 22, 23, and 24 hours on Day 2. The analysis included baseline FEV1 prior to drug administration in the treatment period as a covariate.

    FEV1 was measured with spirometry conducted according to internationally accepted standards. Measurements were made in each treatment period at 5, 15, and 30 minutes and 1, 2, 4, 8, and 12 hours on Day 1 and 22, 23, and 24 hours on Day 2.
