  Purpose

RV568 is being developed as a possible treatment of smoking related lung disease (also known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - COPD).

The main purpose of this study is to examine the safety and tolerability of a new inhaled formulation of RV568 in healthy volunteers. The study will be run in two parts; Part A and Part B. Part A (Cohorts 1, 2 & 3) will investigate 6 different dose levels of RV568 given as a single dose and Part B (Cohorts 4 & 5) will investigate 2 different dose levels of RV568 given once a day for 14 days.

  • Vital sign assessments within normal ranges (systolic blood pressure (SBP) 90 140 mm/Hg; diastolic blood pressure (DBP) 55 - 90 mm/Hg; heart rate (HR) 40 - 100 bpm).
  • Agree not to use prescription medications within 14 days before first administration of study medication and through the duration of the study (with the exception of contraception and hormone replacement therapy (HRT)).
  • Agree not to use over the counter (OTC) medications (including corticosteroids, decongestants, antihistamines, aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)) and herbal medication (including, but not limited to, herbal tea and St. John's Wort), within 14 days before first administration of study medication and through to the final follow up visit, unless approved by the Investigator and Sponsor Medical Monitor. Occasional use of paracetamol at recommended doses (≤ 1 g/ 6 hours and ≤ 2 g/day) and continued pre-existing use of vitamins at recommended doses is allowed.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any acute or chronic illness or clinically relevant abnormality identified on the screening medical assessment, laboratory tests or ECG.
