Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Main Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female patients aged > 18 years.
  • Patients with persistent asthma not optimally controlled (GINA 2010) on high doses of ICS or medium dose of ICS+LABA at a stable dose for at least 4 weeks prior to screening.
  • Patients with FEV1 >= 40% and < 80% of predicted for the patient normal value and at least 0.9 L.

  • At screening and at the end of the run-in period, patients with not adequately controlled asthma according to GINA 2010 and with score at the Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ)> 0.75

Main Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of near fatal asthma or of a past hospitalisation for asthma in Intensive Care Unit or of frequent exacerbations (3 or more asthma exacerbations/ year).
  • Hospitalisation, Emergency Room admission or use of systemic steroids (more than 3 days) for asthma exacerbation in the 4 weeks prior to screening visit and during the run-in period.
  • Symptomatic infection of the lower airways in the 4 weeks before the screening visit.
  • Current or ex-smokers with total cumulative exposure equal or more than 5 pack-years and /or having stopped smoking one year or less prior to screening visit.
  • Patients with a clinically significant abnormality at 12-lead ECG or presenting a QTcB interval value in ECG > 450 msec in males or > 470 msec in females).
