Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent reduction in daily OCS dose compared with baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of patients achieving ≥50% reduction in OCS dose [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  2. Proportion of patients achieving OCS dose reduction to ≤5mg daily dose [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  3. Percent change from baseline in OCS dose [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  4. Proportion of patients achieving less than 5 mg decrement in OCS dose compared to the baseline OCS dose [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  5. Annualized rate of clinical asthma exacerbations [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
    Annualized rate of clinical asthma exacerbations requiring a burst of systemic corticosteroid (injection, or if oral, at least a doubling from the current OCS dose for at least 3 days); an asthma-specific hospital admission; or an asthma-specific emergency department visit

  6. Proportion of patients discontinuing OCS [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  7. Time to first clinical asthma exacerbation [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  8. Pre-bronchodilator FEV1: change from baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  9. Post-bronchodilator FEV1: change from baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  10. Ambulatory lung function: change in peak expiratory flow (PEF) from run-in baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  11. Asthma Quality of Life (AQLQ) + 12 score: change from baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  12. ACQ-6: change from baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  13. Change in nighttime awakenings due to asthma requiring rescue inhaler from run-in baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  14. Change in total asthma symptom scores from run-in baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  15. European Quality of Life 5-dimension health state utility index (EQ-5D) score: change from baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  16. St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) score: change from baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  17. Change in total rescue inhaler use from run-in baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
  18. Serum response relationships [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 24 ]
    Serum reslizumab concentrations to characterize PK and assess exposure response relationships

  19. Immunogenicity as assessed by anti-drug antibodies (ADA) [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 48 ]
  20. Percentage of participants with adverse events [ Time Frame: Week 0 through study week 32 ]
