The purpose of this study is to test how changing the form of administration of an already approved medication affects how it is metabolised in the body. The medication, called Tacrolimus, is currently approved in multiple countries for patients who have received a lung transplant, and is normally given via a tablet or injection. In this study, the medication is given via an inhaler device (similar to an asthma pump) to healthy volunteers. Inhalation of this medication has previously been tested in a group of 20 healthy volunteers and was found to be well tolerated with no significant side effects.

The trial has been approved by an independent ethics committee and you will be reimbursed for your time.
