The primary objectives of this study are:

i. to determine the effect of single oral doses (20 and 200 mg) of ONO-6950 versus placebo on exercise induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) as percent attenuation in the decrease of forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) after exercise challenge

ii. to determine the safety and tolerability of single dose administrations of 20 and 200 mg of ONO-6950 in asthmatic patients.

The secondary objectives of this study are:

i. to compare the effect of different (20 and 200 mg) single oral doses of ONO-6950 versus montelukast (10 mg) on EIB as percent attenuation in the decrease of FEV1 after exercise challenge

ii. to determine the ratio of responders/non-responders in FEV1 for different (20 and 200 mg) single oral doses of ONO-6950 in comparison to montelukast (10 mg) and placebo.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Inhibition of maximum fall in Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1) after exercise [ Time Frame: 60 minutes following the exercise challenge ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC (0-30 min) [ Time Frame: 30 minutes following the exercise challenge ]
    area under the concentration time curve integrating fall in FEV1 following exercise over the 30 minute interval immediately following exercise

  • AUC (0-60 min) [ Time Frame: 60 minutes following the exercise challenge ]
    area under the concentration time curve integrating fall in FEV1 following exercise over the 60 minute interval immediately following exercise

  • Time to recovery of FEV1 to within 5% of the pre-exercise baseline [ Time Frame: 90 minutes following the exercise challenge ]
  • Proportion of patients using a short acting beta agonist (rescue medication) [ Time Frame: 90 minutes following the exercise challenge ]
  • Ratio of responder/non-responder in FEV1 [ Time Frame: 60 minutes following the exercise challenge ]

Enrollment: 59
Study Start Date: March 2012
Primary Completion Date: November 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Detailed Description:
The study will examine if ONO-6950 could alleviate EIB in asthmatic patients. Eligible patients will complete a randomized, double-blind, four-way crossover study. During each of four evaluation periods, patients will be administered a single dose of either 20 or 200 mg ONO-6950, 10 mg Montelukast, or placebo. Each evaluation period include various assessments following exercise challenge in an ambulatory setting.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients of both genders, between 18 to 60 years of age, with bronchial asthma for at least 6 months and history of exercise induced bronchospasm
  • Patients with FEV1 ≥ 70% of predicted after withholding short-acting β agonists for at least 8 hours prior to testing
  • Screening exercise challenge demonstrates that the patient experiences a fall in FEV1 of ≥ 20%
  • Non-smokers with free from the usage of nicotine-containing products at least for a year prior to screening

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous history of life-threatening asthma, respiratory tract infection and/or exacerbation of asthma within 6 weeks prior to the first screening visit
  • History of being unable to tolerate or complete an exercise challenge and clinically significant multiple drug or food allergies
  • Past or present disorders and diseases including, but are not limited to cardiovascular, malignancy, hepatic, renal, hematological, neurological, psychiatric, endocrine, or pulmonary other than asthma
  • Patients with Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (SAR) or seasonal allergic asthma,with significant symptoms that may confound study assessment
  • Significant safety laboratory, ECG, or vital sign abnormalities that would place the patient at undue risk during the study procedures
