    Terbutaline (Bricanyl) and its prodrug Bambuterol (Bambec) are highly potent β2-adrenoceptor agonists often used in asthma patients. Terbutaline in the form of inhaled short-acting bronchodilator relieves asthmatic symptoms. However, the effects of bambuterol given intratracheally have rarely...
