Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Late Asthmatic Response (LAR): Absolute Change From Saline in Minimum FEV1 Between 4-10 Hours (Hrs) Following the 1-hr Post-treatment Allergen Challenge on Day 21 of Each Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Day 21 of each treatment period (up to Study Day 197) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) is a measure of lung function and is defined as the maximal amount of air that can be forcefully exhaled in one second. Participants were exposed to an allergen (administered by inhalation) 1 hr after dosing on Day 21. Minimum FEV1 over 4-10 hours post-allergen challenge (minimum LAR) is the minimum value of all of the post-saline time points between 4 and 10 hrs post-allergen challenge, inclusive of the 4 hr and 10 hr timepoints (i.e., minimum over 4 hrs, 4.5 hrs, 5 hrs, 5.5 hrs, 6 hrs, 6.5 hrs, 7 hrs, 7.5 hrs, 8 hrs, 8.5 hrs, 9 hrs, 9.5 hrs, and 10 hrs). Absolute change from saline in minimum FEV1 was calculated as the minimum FEV1 minus the saline FEV1 value. After inhalation of saline, 3 single measurements of FEV1 were recorded; the maximum FEV1 value was taken as the saline value. Least squares means were obtained by adjusting for period and participant and period Baselines.

  • LAR: Absolute Change From Saline in Weighted Mean (WM) FEV1 Between 4-10 Hrs Following the 1-hr Post-treatment Allergen Challenge on Day 21 of Each Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Day 21 of each treatment period (up to Study Day 197) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 is a measure of lung function and is defined as the maximal amount of air that can be forcefully exhaled in one second. Participants were exposed to an allergen 1 hour after dosing on Day 21. LAR FEV1 was measured 4 hrs, 4.5 hrs, 5 hrs, 5.5 hrs, 6 hrs, 6.5 hrs, 7 hrs, 7.5 hrs, 8 hrs, 8.5 hrs, 9 hrs, 9.5 hrs, and 10 hrs post-allergen challenge on Day 21. Absolute change from saline in WM FEV1 was calculated as the area under the curve divided by the relevant time interval and subtracting the saline FEV1 value. After inhalation of saline, 3 single measurements of FEV1 were recorded; the maximum FEV1 value was taken as the saline value. Least squares means were obtained by adjusting for period and participant and period Baselines.

  • Early Asthmatic Response (EAR): Absolute Change From Saline in Minimum FEV1 Between 0-2 Hrs Following the 1-hr Post-treatment Allergen Challenge on Day 21 of Each Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Day 21 of each treatment period (up to Study Day 197) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 is a measure of lung function and is defined as the maximal amount of air that can be forcefully exhaled in one second. Participants were exposed to an allergen 1 hr after dosing on Day 21. Minimum FEV1 over 0-2 hrs post-allergen challenge (Minimum EAR) is the minimum value of all of the post-allergen challenge timepoints up to and including 2 hours post-allergen challenge (i.e., minimum over 5 minutes (min), 10 min, 15 min, 20 min, 30 min, 45 min and 1 hr, 1.5 hrs, and 2 hrs. Absolute change from saline in minimum FEV1 was calculated as the minimum FEV1 minus the saline FEV1 value. After inhalation of saline, 3 single measurements of FEV1 were recorded; the maximum FEV1 value was taken as the saline value. Least squares means were obtained by adjusting for period and participant and period Baselines.

  • EAR: Absolute Change From Saline in Weighted Mean FEV1 Between 0-2 Hrs Following the 1-hr Post-treatment Allergen Challenge on Day 21 of Each Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Day 21 of each treatment period (up to Study Day 197) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 is a measure of lung function and is defined as the maximal amount of air that can be forcefully exhaled in one second. Participants were exposed to an allergen 1 hr after dosing on Day 21. The EAR FEV1 was measured 0 minutes (min), 5 min, 10 min, 15 min, 20 min, 30 min, 45 min, 1 hr, 1.5 hrs, and 2 hrs post-allergen challenge on Day 21. Least squares means were obtained by adjusting for period and participant and period Baselines. Absolute change from saline in WM FEV1 was calculated as the area under the curve divided by the relevant time interval and subtracting the saline FEV1 value. After inhalation of saline, 3 single measurements of FEV1 were recorded; the maximum FEV1 value was taken as the saline value.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Percent Change From Saline in FEV1 Between 0-2 Hrs, Following the 1-hr Post-treatment Allergen Challenge on Day 21 of Each Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Day 21 of each treatment period (up to Study Day 197) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 is a measure of lung function and is defined as the maximal amount of air that can be forcefully exhaled in one second. Participants were exposed to an allergen 1 hr after dosing on Day 21. FEV1 was measured 0 minutes (min), 5 min, 10 min, 15 min, 20 min, 30 min, 45 min, 1 hr, 1.5 hrs, and 2 hrs post-allergen challenge on Day 21. Maximum percent change was calculated as the minimum FEV1 minus the saline FEV1 value divided by the saline FEV1 multiplied by 100. After inhalation of saline, 3 single measurements of FEV1 were recorded; the maximum FEV1 value was taken as the saline FEV1 value.

  • Provocative Concentration of Methacholine Estimated to Result in a 20% Reduction in FEV1 (PC20) on Day 22 of Each Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Day 22 of each treatment period (up to Study Day 198) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FEV1 is a measure of lung function and is defined as the maximal amount of air that can be forcefully exhaled in one second. Participants inhaled doubling increments of methacholine until a >=20% fall in FEV1 from the saline value was achieved. After inhalation of saline, 3 measurements of FEV1 were recorded; the maximum FEV1 value was taken as the saline value.

Detailed Description:

Asthma is an increasingly common disease and is essentially caused by an allergic type of reaction of the immune system. Airways of the lungs become inflamed and narrow as a result of a reaction to triggers like chemicals (house-hold cleaning products, pollution) and allergens (house dust mite and cat or dog fur). The airways become blocked, causing shortness of breath and wheezing. The purpose of this study is to find out more information about how effective the study drugs are at protecting the lungs against allergic triggers of asthma. There are three study drugs being investigated in this study: fluticasone furoate on its own, GW642444M on its own and a combination of fluticasone furoate (FF) and GW642444M.

FF is a corticosteroid that is being developed by for the treatment of asthma. A nasal spray formulation of FF has been approved for marketing in the USA, Europe and Japan for the treatment of hayfever (rhinitis) but the dry powder formulation used in this study is not yet approved.

GW642444M is a long-acting beta2-agonist being developed by GSK for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It works by acting on cells in the lungs, causing some of the muscles around the lungs to relax and open up better (bronchodilation), making breathing easier. The combination of FF/GW642444M is being developed as a once-daily treatment for both asthma and COPD.

Study treatment will be taken for 21 days in each period (4 treatment periods: FF alone, GW642444M alone, FF/GW64244M combination and placebo) and each subject will receive all treatments. On D21 subjects will undergo an allergen challenge, followed by a methacholine challenge on D22. The washout between treatment periods will be 21-35 days.
