Brief Summary:
The rationale is to investigate the systemic availability of BDP/B17MP and formoterol after single oral inhalation of CHF 1535 50/6 pMDI vs the free combination of approved BDP and Formoterol pMDIs, in asthmatic children (5 to 11 years old).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Official Title: A Single-dose, Open-Label, 2-Way Cross-Over, Clinical Pharmacology Study Of Chf 1535 50/6 HFA pMDI (Fixed Combination Of Beclomethasone Dipropionate 50µg Plus Formoterol Fumarate 6 µg) Using The Aerochamber Plus™ Spacer Device Versus The Free Combination Of Beclomethasone HFA pMDI And Formoterol HFA pMDI Available On The Market Using The Aerochamber Plus™ Spacer Device In Asthmatic Children
Study Start Date : September 2009
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 2010
Actual Study Completion Date : December 2010

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CHF1535 pMDI + AC Plus
Fixed combination of Beclomethasone Dipropionate and Formoterol 50/6 mcg with Aerochamber Plus spacer device
Drug: CHF1535 pMDI + AC Plus
Four inhalations for a total dose of BDP/FF 200/24 mcg
Other Name: Fixed combination of BDP and FF 50/6 mcg

Active Comparator: BDP and Formoterol + AC Plus
Beclomethasone Dipropionate 50 mcg and Formoterol 6 mcg with Aerochamber Plus spacer device
Drug: BDP + AC Plus
Four inhalations for a total dose of BDP 200 mcg
Other Name: Beclomethasone Dipropionate 50 mcg with Aerochamber Plus

Drug: Formoterol + AC Plus
Four inhalations for a total dose of Formoterol 24 mcg
Other Name: Formoterol 6 mcg with Aerochamebr Plus

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. B17MP AUC0-t [ Time Frame: pre-dose until 8hours post dose ]
    B17MP (active metabolite of BDP) systemic exposure as AUC0-t

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. B17MP PK profile [ Time Frame: pre-dose until 8 hours post-dose ]
  2. BDP PK prolile [ Time Frame: Pre-dose until 8 hours post-dose ]
  3. Formoterol PK profile [ Time Frame: Pre-dose until 8 hours post-dose ]
  4. Plasma potassium AUC, Cmin, tmin [ Time Frame: Pre-dose until 8 hours post-dose ]
    Plasma potassium to evaluate drug systemic effect

  5. Urinary Cortisol excretion [ Time Frame: Pre-dose until 8 hours post-dose ]
    8h urinary excretion of cortisol and 8h urinary excretion of cortisol normalized for 8h creatinine excretion to evaluate dru systemic effects

  6. Glucose in urine [ Time Frame: Pre-dose until 8 hours post-dose ]
    Glucose to evaluate the drug systemic effects

  7. Heart rate Time averaged heart rate value (AUC0-t)/t [ Time Frame: Pre-dose until 8 hours post-dose ]
    Heart rate to evaluate the drug systemic effects

  8. Spirometry: PEF [ Time Frame: Pre-dose until 8 hours post-dose ]
    Peak respiratory flow as a measure of drug efficacy
