  • At the time of screening, any abnormality of the following measurements: hemoglobin, total white blood cell count (WBC), platelet count, aspartate transaminase (AST), alanine transaminase (ALT), amylase, or serum creatinine above the upper limits of normal (ULN); or other abnormal laboratory values in the screening panel that, in the opinion of the principal investigator, are judged to be clinically significant;
  • Evidence of any systemic disease or respiratory disease (other than asthma), any finding upon physical examination or history of any disease that, in the opinion of the investigator or medical monitor, may compromise the safety of the patient in the study or confound the analysis of the study; or
  • Employees of the clinical study site or any other individuals involved with the conduct of the study, or family members of such individuals.
