  • time to recovery (min), Protected/Unprotected Subjects Counts [ Time Frame: Days -7, 0, 5, 10, 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • FVC AUC 0-60 (% decrease from post-dose/pre-challenge FEV1). [ Time Frame: Days -7, 0, 5, 10, 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum percent decrease in FVC from visit post-dose/pre-challenge FVC, [ Time Frame: Days -7, 0, 5, 10, 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Minimum percent change in FVC for pre-dose FVC, [ Time Frame: Days -7, 0, 5, 10, 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • FEF25-75% AUC 0-60 (% decrease from post-dose/pre-challenge FEV1), [ Time Frame: Days -7, 0, 5, 10, 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum percent decrease in FEF25-75% from visit post-dose/pre-challenge FEF25-75% [ Time Frame: Days -7, 0, 5, 10, 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Minimum percent change in FEF25%-75% from visit pre-dose FEF25-75%. [ Time Frame: Days -7, 0, 5, 10, 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A
Subjects randomized to the levalbuterol arm will complete 1 of 6 possible randomization sequences containing (a) levalbuterol 45 µg (1 actuation of 45 µg); (b) levalbuterol 90 µg (2 actuation of 45 µg) and (c) levalbuterol 180 µg (4 actuations of 45 µg each). Subjects will receive treatment, according to the randomization sequence, followed by a 5±2 day washout.

Detailed Description:

A randomized, modified-blind, active controlled, multicenter, parallel treatment, 3x3 dose level crossover study evaluating the dose response of levalbuterol in subjects 12 years of age and older with exercise induced bronchoconstriction. This study was previously posted by Sepracor Inc. In October 2009, Sepracor Inc. was acquired by Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma., and in October 2010, Sepracor Inc's name was changed to Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc.
