Brief Summary:
This study was conducted to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetics of an echocardiographic contrast agent, AI-700, in patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and/or congestive heart failure (CHF).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Congestive Heart Failure Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Drug: AI-700 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
In ongoing clinical trials, AI-700 is currently being evaluated for its value to provide enhanced echocardiography to detect CAD. The patient population is comprised of those patients who have chest pain and are being evaluated for inducible ischemia. This population may include patients with compromised pulmonary function due to COPD or CHF. This study was to evaluate the safety of AI-700 in these patients.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
