Study Completion Date: August 2009
Primary Completion Date: August 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Inhaled Loxapine
Staccato Loxapine, 10 mg doses x 2, 10 hours apart
Drug: Inhaled Loxapine
Staccato Loxapine, 10 mg x 2 doses, 10 hours apart
Placebo Comparator: Inhaled Placebo
Staccato Placebo,inhalations x 2, 10 hours apart
Drug: Inhaled Placebo
Staccato Placebo, inhalations x 2 , 10 hours apart

Detailed Description:
To address the possibility that inhalation of loxapine may have adverse pulmonary effects, we studied two 10-mg inhaled doses of loxapine or placebo were given 10 hr apart to subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The objective was to determine the time course and reversibility of pulmonary effects for inhaled loxapine compared with placebo.
