    • put the patient at risk because of participation in the study
    • influence the results of the study (as determined by medical history, examination and clinical investigations at screening)
    • cause concern regarding the patient's ability to participate in the study. *e.g. cardiac, gastro-intestinal, hepatic, renal, metabolic, dermatologic, neurological, haematological, oncological and psychiatric. Patients with malignancy for which the patient has undergone resection, radiation or chemotherapy within past 5 years.

  5. Previous participation in this study (receipt of randomized treatment) or active participation in a current interventional study.
  6. Patients with a clinically relevant abnormal baseline haematology, blood chemistry, or urinalysis at screening, if the abnormality defines a significant disease as defined in exclusion criterion No. 1.

    • The following medications within 4 weeks: topical steroids, change in prescription medications
    • The following medications within 2 weeks: LABA (long acting beta agonist), methylxanthines, leukotriene modifiers, any antihistamines, oral decongestants, any anti-rhinitis therapies (i.e., decongestants, herbals, anticholinergics), and hay-fever medications, tricyclic antidepressants, aspirin and any NSAIDs (non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs) (for occasional pain relief, only paracetamol may be used), oral beta 2 agonists
    • Before Visit 1: Short acting bronchodilator within 6 hours of baseline pulmonary function testing
  11. Patients with a risk for prolonged QT interval effects including:

    • A marked baseline prolongation of the QT interval in the electrocardiogram by demonstration of a QTcB interval (Bazett's correction formula) > 450 ms
    • A history of additional risk factors for TdP (Torsades de pointes) e.g., heart failure, hypokalemia, family, history of Long QT Syndrome, etc.
    • The use of concomitant medications known to prolong the QT/QTc interval
