Brief Summary:

104317: The market authorisation application for mepolizumab for the indication of hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) was filed in 2008, but later the file was withdrawn due to outstanding questions from regulator's raised from the application. On the basis of sponsor's evaluation, participants with life-threatening HES who have documented failure (lack of efficacy or a contra-indication) to at least 3 standard HES therapies (compassionate use) and participants who have participated in a previous GSK sponsored study in HES (long-term access) can be consider for mepolizumab treatment where the country regulation permits. In this study, participants will receive mepolizumab in an open-labelled manner, and limited data will be collected to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of mepolizumab.

201956: This is a Long-term Access Programme (LAP) which aims to support provision of mepolizumab, until it is commercially available, to eligible subjects with severe asthma who participated in a GSK-sponsored mepolizumab clinical study in severe asthma. Eligible subjects will initiate mepolizumab within a 6-month period following the individual subject's last scheduled visit in their preceding clinical study. For each subject benefit versus risk will be assessed throughout the study to support continued treatment with mepolizumab.

112562: To provide a mechanism for expanded access to mepolizumab therapy for eligible patients with HES. Whenever possible, use of an investigational medicinal product by a patient as part of a clinical trial is preferable. However, when patient enrollment in a clinical trial is not possible (such as when the patient is not eligible for ongoing clinical trials or the patient is not able to attend investigational sites), appropriate patients may receive mepolizumab through expanded access. This expanded access protocol was designed to allow access to mepolizumab for HES patients with seriously debilitating or life-threatening disease that are not able to enroll in clinical trials, including those patients that have already participated in a mepolizumab clinical trial.

Eosinophilia >1500cells/ul for at least 6 months with evidence of symptoms and signs of organ system involvement or dysfunction that can be directly related to eosinophilia (with no evidence of parasitic, allergic or other recognized causes of eosinophilia such as connective tissues disease, malignancy) or Eosinophilia of >1500cells/ul for less than 6 months who meet the other criteria for HES accompanied by clear evidence of eosinophil tissue infiltration and with exclusion for secondary causes of eosinophilia as above.

  • Compassionate use: Documented failure (lack of efficacy or a contra-indication) to at least 3 standard therapies (corticosteroids, cytotoxic agents, immunomodulatory therapy, and Imatinib mesylate) at the appropriate duration and dose

Subsequently, subjects should complete the 20-week assessments in Study 205203, open-label extension (OLE) to Study 200622, prior to being considered for this protocol (MHE104317). In addition, subjects should not have had an adverse event (serious or non-serious) considered related to study treatment while participating in Study 200622 or Study 205203 which resulted in permanent withdrawal of study treatment.

104317 Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects without HES but with other conditions associated with eosinophilic pathological process such as Churg-Strauss, Wegner's Granulomatosis, atopic disorders, hypersensitivity reactions to parasitic infections, eosinophilic gastroenteropathies, will not be eligible for this compassionate use program which is restricted to life-threatening HES.
  • Female subjects of child -bearing potential who are not using an effective method of contraception:

Consistent and correct use of one of the following acceptable methods of birth control for one month prior to the start of the investigation product and 16 weeks after the last dose.

  • Pregnant or lactating females
  • Subjects with severe/life-threatening underlying disease unrelated to HES unrelated to HES where life expectancy is estimated to be less than 3 months.
  • Subjects with a history of or current malignancy: Subjects with a history of or current lymphoma or Subjects with current malignancy or previous history of cancer in remission for less than 12 months prior to the first dose. Subjects that had localized carcinoma (i.e., basal or squamous cell) of the skin which was resected for cure will not be excluded.
  • Subjects with history of serious allergic reaction (hypersensitivity/anaphylaxis) to anti-IL5 or other antibody therapy or known or suspected hypersensitivity to any component of mepolizumab, leading to treatment discontinuation
