This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of two dosages of a new drug TPI ASM8 administered by inhalation for 14 days to mild to moderate asthmatic patients, aged between 18-65, non-smokers . The study will also look at the nature and quantity of inflammatory white cells in the lung secretions and in the blood, and some additional inflammation markers.
