Study Description

The ALTA Study is being carried out to better understand the potential effects of an investigational study drug, called PT027, on treating acute airway obstruction (narrowing of the airways). PT027 contains albuterol, which has been used for treating asthma for over 40 years. PT027 also contains the anti-inflammatory drug, budesonide, which has been used in asthma treatment for over 30 years. You will be asked to breathe in a sugar called mannitol via an inhaler both before and after you receive the investigational drugs. Inhaling mannitol may help researchers to find out if PT027 is safe and effective for treating acute airway obstruction. If you join the ALTA study, you will need to attend the study center 3 times to receive the study treatment and have some tests and assessments, including:  Routine medical tests, overall health checks and checking the symptoms of your asthma. A screening visit of 5 hours to check if you are eligible to enter the study.  Two study center visits of 10-12 hours each where you will receive the study treatment.
