Safety and Tolerability Study of Levalbuterol HFA and Racemic Albuterol HFA in Pediatrics Subjects With Asthma
A Cumulative Dose Tolerability Study of Levalbuterol HFA and Racemic Albuterol HFA in Pediatric Subjects With Asthma

The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and tolerability of levalbuterol HFA metered dose inhaler (MDI) versus racemic albuterol HFA MDI in pediatric subjects 4-11 years of age with asthma

A randomized, double-blind, active-controlled multicenter, two-way crossover study of HFA levalbuterol (with and without a spacer) in subjects 4-11 years of age with asthma. 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.

Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Asthma
  • Drug: Levalbuterol HFA MDI followed by Racemic albuterol HFA MDI
    (a) Subjects will receive both treatments: (a) levalbuterol HFA MDI; 45 micrograms (16 cumulative doses); followed by (b) racemic albuterol HFA MDI; 90 micrograms (16 cumulative doses)
    Other Names:
    • Xopenex HFA MDI
    • albuterol HFA MDI
  • Drug: Racemic Albuterol followed by levalbuterol HFA MDI
    (a) Subjects will receive both treatments: (a) racemic albuterol HFA MDI; 90 micrograms (16 cumulative doses) followed by (b) levalbuterol HFA MDI; 45 micrograms (16 cumulative doses)
    Other Names:
    • albuterol HFA MDI
    • Xopenex HFA MDI
  • Experimental: A

    Subjects will receive both treatments: (a) levalbuterol HFA MDI; 45 micrograms (8 cumulative doses); followed by (b) racemic albuterol HFA MDI; 90 micrograms (8 cumulative doses).

    The first treatment will be administered, followed by a 7 ±2 days washout period, after which the second of the two treatments will be administered. Cumulative dosing will occur according to the following schedule: 1 puff at 0 and 30 minutes, 2 puffs at 60 minutes, 4 puffs at 90 minutes and 8 puffs at 120 minutes. Treatment will be administered with an AeroChamber Plus ™ spacer for the first cohort (spacer cohort) of subjects and without the AeroChamber Plus ™ spacer (non-spacer cohort) for the second cohort of subjects.

    Intervention: Drug: Levalbuterol HFA MDI followed by Racemic albuterol HFA MDI
