Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Forced Expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV-1) from morning predose at Baseline (Week 0) to predose at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 0 and 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Other pulmonary function tests including forced vital capacity (FVC) and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR). [ Time Frame: Whole duration of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical endpoints (frequency of asthma exacerbations and patient data captured in diary including daily morning and evening PEFR). [ Time Frame: Whole duration of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety variables include adverse events, ECGs, clinical laboratory tests and vital signs. [ Time Frame: Whole duration of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
