Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics of a single 300 µg dose of indacaterol (QAB149) alone administered via inhalation and in the presence of ketoconazole (at steady state) in healthy adult subjects

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of a single 300 µg dose of indacaterol (QAB149) given via inhalation in the presence of ketoconazole at steady state in healthy adult subjects.

  • A known hypersensitivity or severe adverse event to indacaterol/ketoconazole or drugs similar to the study drugs.
  • History of bowel obstruction, symptomatic gall bladder disease, suspected Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, or abdominal adhesions.
  • Any surgical or medical condition which might significantly alter the absorption, distribution, metabolism or excretion of drugs or which may jeopardize the subject in case of participation in the study.
  • History of immunodeficiency diseases, including a positive HIV (ELISA and Western blot) test result.
  • Any planned surgery or procedure within 3 months of screening.
  • A positive Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) or Hepatitis C or VDRL (Venereal Disease Research Laboratory) test result.
