BACKGROUND Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has a significant negative impact on quality of life and increases the risk of premature death. Umeclidinium is a long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonist in development for the treatment of COPD with the aim to broaden treatment options for clinicians and patients by providing improved symptom(More)
To characterise the safety, tolerability, pharmacodynamics (bronchodilatory effect) and pharmacokinetics of inhaled umeclidinium in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The first investigation was a single dose, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study (clinicaltrials.gov: NCT00515502) in which ipratropium bromide-sensitive(More)
AIMS IL-13 is implicated as an important mediator of the pathology of asthma. This first clinical study with GSK679586, a novel humanized anti-IL-13 IgG1 monoclonal antibody, evaluated the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of escalating single and repeat doses of GSK679586. METHODS In this randomized, double-blind study, healthy subjects(More)
OBJECTIVE Mepolizumab is a humanized IgG1 monoclonal antibody that blocks human IL-5 from binding to the IL-5 receptor, which is mainly expressed on eosinophils. Eosinophils are key cells in the inflammatory cascade of various diseases, including asthma. This study investigated the pharmacokinetic (PK)/pharmacodynamic (PD) relationship between exposure of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of GSK1070806, a novel IgG1 mAb that neutralizes human interleukin (IL)-18. METHODS In this first-timein-human (FTIH) study, cohorts of healthy and obese subjects were randomly allocated to receive single doses of GSK1070806 (0.008 - 10 mg/kg) or placebo. Blood was(More)
AIMS To test the hypothesis that the renal clearance of moxonidine decreases when dosed with quinidine. METHODS A randomized, two-period study was conducted with six healthy, male subjects orally dosed with either 0.2 mg moxonidine alone or 1 h after 400 mg quinidine sulphate. Pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated using a noncompartmental analysis(More)
Mepolizumab is a fully humanized monoclonal antibody (IgG1/κ) targeting human interleukin-5 (IL-5), a key haematopoietin needed for eosinophil development and function. Mepolizumab blocks human IL-5 from binding to the α-chain of the IL-5 receptor complex on the eosinophil cell surface, thereby inhibiting IL-5 signalling. The pharmacokinetics of mepolizumab(More)
BACKGROUND Approximately 5% to 10% of asthmatic patients achieve incomplete symptom control on current therapies. The association of IL-13 with asthma pathology and reduced corticosteroid sensitivity suggests a potential benefit of anti-IL-13 therapy in refractory asthma. GSK679586, a humanized mAb, inhibits IL-13 binding to both IL-13 receptor α1 and α2.(More)
The metabolism and pharmacokinetics of moxonidine, a potent central-acting antihypertensive agent, were studied in four healthy subjects after a single oral administration of approximately 1 mg (approximately 60 muCi) of [(14)C(3)]moxonidine. Moxonidine was rapidly absorbed, with peak plasma concentration achieved between 0.5 to 2 h postdose. The maximal(More)
