Evaluation of intravenous anthrax immune globulin for treatment of inhalation anthrax. [2013]
Bacillus anthracis toxins can be neutralized by antibodies against protective antigen (PA), a component of anthrax toxins. Anthrivig (human anthrax immunoglobulin), also known as AIGIV, derived from plasma of humans immunized with BioThrax (anthrax vaccine adsorbed), is under development for the treatment of toxemia following exposure to anthrax spores.

Ciprofloxacin dry powder for inhalation in non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis: a phase II randomised study. [2013]
This phase II, randomised, double-blind, multicentre study (NCT00930982) investigated the safety and efficacy of ciprofloxacin dry powder for inhalation (DPI) in patients with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis. Adults who were culture positive for pre-defined potential respiratory pathogens (including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Haemophilus influenzae) were randomised to ciprofloxacin DPI 32.5 mg or placebo administered twice daily for 28 days (with 56 days of follow-up).

Efficacy and safety of loxapine for inhalation in the treatment of agitation in patients with schizophrenia: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. [2011.10]
CONCLUSIONS: Inhaled loxapine was generally safe and well tolerated and produced rapid improvement in agitated patients with psychotic disorders. Statistically significant differences in efficacy were found for the 10-mg dose compared with placebo, with results suggesting 5 mg may be effective. The delivery of loxapine by inhalation may provide a rapid, well-tolerated option for treating acute psychotic agitation that allows patients to avoid the aversive effects and loss of autonomy often associated with use of intramuscular medications. Further investigation of this new loxapine formulation is warranted. TRIAL REGISTRATION: ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT00369577. (c) Copyright 2011 Physicians Postgraduate Press, Inc.

Clinical Trials Related to Proventil ( Inhalation)

Controlled, 12-Week Study of Albuterol HFA Versus the Active Control, Proventil(R)-HFA in Asthmatic Patients [Terminated]
This 12-week clinical study evaluates the safety and efficacy of Albuterol Sulfate HFA Inhalation Aerosol (Albuterol-HFA, or: A004), Armstrong's proposed HFA formulation of metered dose inhaler (MDI) of Albuterol (Treatment T), in comparison with: 1. Placebo control: (HFA propellant only, Treatment P); and 2. Active control: 3M/Key's Proventil-HFA (Treatment R). The treatments will be given as self-administered oral inhalations in adult and adolescent patients with mild-to-moderate asthma, for 12-weeks. Dosing regimen throughout the 12-week study is two actuations four times daily (QID).

Testing Potential Synergistic Effects of Albuterol and Caffeine on Metabolic Rate [Completed]

Preterm Infant Inhaled Albuterol Dosing [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to help determine the best dose of albuterol in premature babies at risk of developing bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). BPD is the chronic lung disease of prematurity and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, longer hospital stays, and increased healthcare utilization. Albuterol is an inhaled medication frequently used in premature infants with chronic lung disease and in people with asthma. It is believed to be safe, but the optimal dose for infants is not clear. The investigators hypothesize that albuterol may help a subset of premature infants with lung disease, but they need to determine the best dose prior to doing research about how effective it is for chronic lung disease/BPD. Response to each of three doses of albuterol will be measure using pulmonary function tests.

Single-Dose Cross-Over Study of the Effects of Albuterol-HFA in Exercise Induced Bronchoconstriction [Terminated]
This clinical study will evaluate and establish the protective effects of Amphastar's Albuterol Sulfate HFA Inhalation Aerosol (Albuterol-HFA), in preventing exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) in adolescent and adult asthmatic patients, in comparison with (1) Proventil®-HFA (Reference drug and Active Control ), and (2) Placebo-HFA control (HFA propellant only). Safety of the test drug, Albuterol-HFA, will also be evaluated in comparison to the Active and Placebo Controls. Analyses will be performed to determine if the Armstrong's Albuterol-HFA has resulted in a significant bronchoprotective effect, with attenuated Max % Fall in FEV1, in comparison to the Placebo-HFA control.

Efficacy and Safety Comparison of Albuterol Spiromax® and ProAir® Hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) in Pediatric Patients [Completed]
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, placebo-controlled, single-dose, 5-treatment, 5-period, 5-way crossover study in pediatric patients with persistent asthma. The primary purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of Albuterol Spiromax with that of ProAir HFA in pediatric asthma patients at 2 delivered dose levels equivalent to 90 mcg and 180 mcg of albuterol base.
