GSK961081 has previously been administered to healthy subjects in a nebulised formulation and the first part of this study which will be conducted in healthy subjects proposes to bridge the change from nebulised to DPI formulation of GSK961081 before administration to patients. The second part of the study will be conducted in COPD patients and aims to assess the safety and bronchodilator profile of GSK961081 over 24 hours, during 14 days dosing.
