Albuterol aerosol was found to be a potent and long acting bronchodilating drug with relative specificity for beta2 receptors in bronchial smooth muscle. Its degree of effectiveness and duration of action in relieving bronchospasm appear to be superior to those of isoproterenol in the doses which were employed in this study. The subjects involved tolerated the drug well and reported no significant adverse effects.
