Brief Summary:
This is a randomized, multicenter, placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel-group study evaluating Asmanex Twisthaler 220 mcg once daily (QD) in the evening (PM) compared with "Asmanex" Placebo QD PM for 12 weeks. Efficacy will be measured for the changes in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) from baseline to the end of treatment period (Week 12 or end of the study).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline to Final/Terminal Visit in Forced Expiratory Value in 1 Second (FEV1) in Morning Office Measurements. [ Time Frame: Twelve (12) weeks ]
    The baseline value for this outcome measure was evaluated at the baseline visit prior to randomization. The change from Baseline to final/terminal visit in FEV1 was to be analyzed using an Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) model.

  • Be off treatment with leukotriene receptor antagonist (LTRA) for at least 14 days prior to Screening
  • Have an FEV1 >=65% but <=85% of predicted normal value at Screening and at Baseline when SABAs have been withheld for at least 6 hours
  • Demonstrate an increase of absolute FEV1 of >= 12% with an absolute volume increase of at least 200mL during Screening. Written documentation of FEV1 reversibility of >= 12% within 2 years prior to Screening was acceptable in lieu of testing. FEV1 reversibility testing should be done after withholding inhaled SABA for at least 6 hours
  • Have a frequency of asthma score of at least 2 (at least 2 symptoms) and/or frequency of bronchodilator use score of at least 2 at Screening
  • Have a Total Asthma Severity Score (TASS) of at least 4 on 8 or more of the AM and PM recordings from the last 7 days during the Run-in period prior to Baseline and the AM of the Baseline Visit
  • At Screening Visit, have sleep disturbance and scores of >=2 on the interference with sleep rating scale (recall over the past 7 nights), and at least 30 on the Medical Outcomes Study Sleep scale (MOS-SS) Sleep Disturbance Sleep Scale (recall over the past 7 days)
  • At the Baseline Visit, must have sleep disturbance and scores of >= 2 on interference with sleep rating scale (recorded in a diary during the past 7 nights), and at least 30 on the MOS-SS Sleep Problems Index II 9 items(SLP 9)
