Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) area under the curve from 0 to 12 hours [AUC(0-12)] from test day baseline across the three doses of inhaled PT005 compared with placebo. [ Time Frame: Serial FEV1 measured over 12 hours ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to onset of action (>10% improvement in FEV1 from baseline) [ Time Frame: Serial FEV1 measured over 12 hours ]
  2. Peak FEV1 [ Time Frame: Serial FEV1 measured over 12 hours ]
  3. Trough FEV1 [ Time Frame: Serial FEV1 measured over 12 hours ]
  4. Peak inspiratory capacity (IC) [ Time Frame: Serial IC measured over 12 hours ]
  5. Peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) [ Time Frame: Serial PEFR measured over 12 hours ]
  6. Forced vital capacity (FVC) [ Time Frame: Serial FVC measured over 12 hours ]
