Brief Summary:
The primary objective of the trial is to investigate the effect of the use of inhaled colistimethate sodium, administered twice daily via the I-neb for 12 months, compared to placebo in subjects with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFB) chronically infected with P. aeruginosa on the frequency of pulmonary exacerbations.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Annualized Pulmonary Exacerbation rate [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Annual mean NCFB pulmonary exacerbation rate.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to first pulmonary exacerbation [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Time (in days) from the first dose of IMP until the first pulmonary exacerbation;

  2. Annualised number of pulmonary exacerbation-free days [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Number of exacerbation-free days

  3. Number of severe NCFB pulmonary exacerbations, [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    severe NCFB pulmonary exacerbations are defined as those requiring intravenous antibiotics and/or hospitalisation;

  4. Time to first severe pulmonary exacerbation [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Time (in days) from first dose of IMP until the first severe pulmonary exacerbation

  5. Quality of life (SGRQ) [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
    Quality of life (QoL) as measured by the total score of the Saint George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ)

  6. Quality of Life (Qol-B) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Quality of Life - Bronchiectasis (QOL B) as measured by the total score of the ) and Quality of Life - Bronchiectasis (QOL B) questionnaire

  7. Days of work absence [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Number of days of work absence due to NCFB pulmonary exacerbations

  8. P. aeruginosa density [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    mean change in log10 colony forming units (CFU)/g sputum from baseline (Visit 2) to Day 28 of treatment (Visit 3) as well as to Visits 5 (6 months) to 11 (24 months) inclusive.

  3. myasthenia gravis or porphyria,
  4. severe cardiovascular disease such as severe uncontrolled hypertension, ischaemic heart disease or cardiac arrhythmia and any other conditions that would confound the evaluation of safety, in the opinion of the Investigator;
