Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with clinically stable persistent mild/moderate asthma within the 4 weeks preceding the screening visit, with the exclusion of other significant pulmonary diseases (e.g. chronic bronchitis, emphysema, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis or bronchopulmonary dysplasia)
  • Subjects with a screening pre-bronchodilator FEV1 70% predicted (having abstained from bronchodilators for the required period). Predicted values are based on the NHanes normal ranges
  • During the screening visit, subjects must demonstrate the presence of reversible airway disease, defined as an increase in FEV1 of 12.0% over the max of the three screening measures and an absolute change of 150 mL within 30 minutes following a single 400 mg salbutamol dose
  • Male and females who are aged between 18 and 65 years of age.A female is eligible to enter and participate in the study if she is of:

    1. Non-childbearing potential (i.e., physiologically incapable of becoming pregnant), including any female who is post menopausal. For the purposes of this study, post menopausal is defined as 1 year without menses (FSH/LH will be also tested to confirm menopausal status); or
    2. Child bearing potential, has a negative pregnancy test (urine) at screening and pre-dose Day 1, and agrees to one of the following acceptable contraceptive methods when used consistently and correctly (i.e., in accordance with the approved product label and the instructions of a physician for the duration of the study - screening visit to follow-up contact):

Complete abstinence from intercourse from the screening visit, throughout the trial and for 7 (~5 half-lives of GSK256066) days after the completion of the trial; or Male partner was sterile prior to the female subject's entry into the study, or Implants of levonorgestrel inserted for at least 1 month prior to the study medication administration but not beyond the third successive year following insertion; or Injectable progestogen administered for at least 1 month prior to the study medication administration and administered for 1 month following study completion; or Oral contraceptive (combined or progestogen only) administered for a least one monthly cycle prior to study medication administration; or The contraceptive transdermal patch, Ortho Evra (if the subject is less than 89kg); or Double-barrier method - spermicide plus a mechanical barrier (e.g., spermicide plus a male condom or a spermicide and female diaphragm.

Recent data now shows that certain double-barrier methods have a failure rate below 1% [Trussell, 2003]. Specifically, these are a spermicide plus a mechanical barrier (e.g., spermicide plus a male condom or a female diaphragm). This provides validated confirmation of the failure rate of the double-barrier method. Thus this method now meets the stated criterion for acceptable contraception in the EMEA guidelines [CPMP/ICH/285/95, 2000]; or Condom and occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository; or An intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS), inserted by a qualified physician, with published data showing that the highest expected failure rate is less than 1% per year; (not all IUDs meet this criterion) Acceptable IUDs: Tcu-380A (Paragard), TCU-380 Slimline (Gyne T Slimline), Tcu-220C, MULTILOAD-250 (MLCu-250) and 375, NOVA T and CUNOVAT (Novagard), Levonorgesterol (LNG-20) Intra-uterine System (Mirena/Levonova), and FlexiGard 330/CuFix PP330 (Gynefix). The device must be inserted at least 2 weeks prior to the Screen visit, and remain throughout the study and through the follow-up phase of the study or Any other methods with published data showing that the highest expected failure rate is less than 1% per year.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • As a result of medical interview, physical examination or screening investigations, the principle investigator or delegate physician deems the subject unsuitable for the study.

  • Subjects will require normal serum creatinine clearance values at screening [calculated from serum creatinine by a predicting equation using Cockcroft-Gualt formula].

  • The subject has participated in a clinical trial and has received a drug or a new chemical entity within 30 days or 5 half-lives, or twice the duration of the biological effect of any drug (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of current study medication
