  Purpose
The aim of the trial is to investigate asthma control with 160 to 640 μg ciclesonide/day. Asthma control will be assessed by the Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ).

Condition Intervention Phase
Bronchial Asthma
Drug: Ciclesonide
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in the ACQ score from last measurement to baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline until end of treatment (up to 52 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ACQ score is the mean of 7 items and ranges between 0 (well controlled) and 6 (extremely poorly controlled). Subjects recall their experiences during the previous 7 days and respond to each question using a 7-point scale.

Study Completion Date: August 2014
Primary Completion Date: August 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: CIC 160
Two puffs of 40 µg ciclesonide inhaled in the morning and the evening (corresponding to a total daily dose of 160 µg)
Drug: Ciclesonide
During the treatment period subjects will inhale two puffs of either 40, 80 or 160 μg ciclesonide in the morning and the evening (corresponding to a total daily dose of 160, 320 or 640 μg)
Active Comparator: CIC 320
Two puffs of 80 µg ciclesonide inhaled in the morning and the evening (corresponding to a total daily dose of 320 µg)
Drug: Ciclesonide
During the treatment period subjects will inhale two puffs of either 40, 80 or 160 μg ciclesonide in the morning and the evening (corresponding to a total daily dose of 160, 320 or 640 μg)
Active Comparator: CIC 640
Two puffs of 160 µg ciclesonide inhaled in the morning and the evening (corresponding to a total daily dose of 640 µg)
Drug: Ciclesonide
During the treatment period subjects will inhale two puffs of either 40, 80 or 160 μg ciclesonide in the morning and the evening (corresponding to a total daily dose of 160, 320 or 640 μg)

Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Written informed consent was provided
  • History of persistent bronchial asthma for at least 6 months
  • Current treatment with an Inhaled Corticosteroid (ICS) at a stable dose in the dose range of 200-1000 μg Fluticasone Propionate (FP)/day or equivalent for a minimum of 12 weeks
  • Good inhalation technique
  • Under the current ICS pre-treatment the ACQ score ranges between ≥ 0.75 and ≥ 2

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Clinically relevant abnormal laboratory values suggesting an unknown disease and requiring further clinical evaluation
  • Concomitant severe diseases (e.g. malignant diseases during the past 5 years [other than basal or squamous cell carcinoma], hepatitis C, acquired immune deficiency syndrome [AIDS])
  • Diseases which are contraindications for the use of ICS (e.g. active or inactive pulmonary tuberculosis or relevant fungal, bacterial or viral infections of the lower respiratory tract demanding specific treatment)
  • Use of systemic glucocorticosteroids within 4 weeks (injectable depot steroids 6 weeks) before entry into the baseline period, or more than 3 times during the last 6 months
