Detailed Description:

This study will assess the safety of a new study drug called DAS181 (Fludase®). This study is being done with NexBio, Inc., the company that makes DAS181 (Fludase®). DAS181 is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA); however the FDA has given permission to use DAS181 in human studies. To date, DAS181 has been given to about 81 healthy people and has been well tolerated with no reported serious adverse reactions. This is the first experimental study to test if it is safe to use this drug in people with well-controlled asthma or bronchiectasis. DAS181 is not being given to treat asthma or bronchiectasis, but to learn if it is safe to use in people with well-controlled asthma or bronchiectasis. DAS181 is being developed as a medication to prevent and treat infections due to common respiratory viruses like influenza (including the pandemic H1N1 strain), parainfluenza, and other viruses. New drugs to treat respiratory viruses are needed because some currently available drugs are not effective against some types or strains of viruses. Drugs that are effective against respiratory viruses are especially important for people with asthma or bronchiectasis because these lung conditions increase the risk of serious complications due to respiratory virus infections. Making sure the new drug is safe in people with asthma or bronchiectasis is important because people with these lung conditions may have different side effects from a drug than people who don't have asthma or bronchiectasis. We plan to enroll 24 volunteers into the study: 12 persons with well-controlled asthma and 12 persons with bronchiectasis.

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. A male or female subject must be 18 to 65 years of age.

  3. Subject must be able to verbalize understanding of the informed consent form, verbalize willingness to complete all study procedures, and provide written informed consent (sign the informed consent form).
  4. Subject must be willing to commit to participating in both the initial and cross-over stages of the study.
  5. Dipstick analysis of subject's urine specimen must be negative or show only trace amounts of glucose, hemoglobin, and protein. A menstruating female who tests positive for urine hemoglobin may be retested.
  6. Subject must have blood screening test results that are within normal limits (according to standards set within the Clinical Center) for the following tests: alanine transaminase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALKP), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), and aspartate transaminase (AST).
  7. Subject must have hematologic screening tests that are within a specified range, including hemoglobin of 10.9 g/dL, white blood cell count 2500/mm3, and platelet count 125,000/mm3 (all <grade 1 on DAIDS severity scale).
  8. A female subject must be post-menopausal (1 year without menses), have been surgically sterilized, practice abstinence, or use an effective method of birth control that may include an intrauterine device, spermicide, barrier, and hormonal contraception. A female subject must also have a negative serum test for pregnancy during the Screening period, and a negative urine test for pregnancy on the first day of drug or placebo administration.

Asthma Subjects:

  1. Subject must have a clinically established diagnosis of asthma based upon a history of episodic symptoms of airway obstruction or airway hyper-responsiveness (i.e., wheezing).
  2. Subject must have a documented increase in FEV1 or forced vital capacity (FVC) 12% (and at least 200 mL) from baseline after inhaling a short-acting bronchodilator; or a PC20FEV1 response to methacholine (i.e., the concentration of methacholine that produces a 20% decrease in FEV1 from the post-saline value during the methacholine challenge) of 8 mg/mL.
  3. At the time of study enrollment, subject's asthma has been well-controlled for at least the past 3 months, as defined by the following:

    1. Daytime symptoms occur 2 days per week
