Response to ipratropium bromide
Any clinically relevant and important abnormality identified at the screening medical assessment (physical examination/medical history), clinical laboratory tests, or ECG (12-lead or Holter).
A history of breathing problems
A mean QTc(B) value > 450ms, the QTc(B) of the 3 screening ECGs are not within 10% of the mean, a PR interval outside the range 90-210ms or an ECG that is not suitable for QT measurements at screening.
A history of elevated resting blood pressure or a mean blood pressure higher than 140/90 mmHg at screening.
A mean heart rate outside the range 40-90 bpm inclusive at screening.
History of use of tobacco- or nicotine-containing products within 6 months of screening, and/or positive urine cotinine test results at screening.
Where participation in the study would result in donation of blood in excess of 500mL within a 56 day period at screening.
The subject is currently taking regular (or a course of) medication, whether prescribed or not, including herbal remedies such as St John's Wort etc.
