Brief Summary:
This is a multi-centre, randomized, double-blind,placebo parallel-controlled phase III study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CMAB007 (recombinant humanized anti-immunoglobulin E(IgE) monoclonal antibody for injection) to treat asthma patients who remain not adequately controlled despite Med/high ICS plus LABA in China. Following a screening period of up to 2 weeks and run-in period of 4 weeks, randomized patients will enter a 24-week treatment period with CMAB007 or placebo. Efficacy and safety will be assessed at 4-week intervals during the treatment period.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Asthma, Allergic Drug: CMAB007 Drug: Symbicort Drug: Seretide Drug: Ventolin Drug: placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Approximately 400 asthma patients with an increased serum total IgE level(60-1500 international unit(IU)/ml) and uncontrolled receiving medium to high dose inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) plus long-acting β2-agonist(LABA) will be randomised in about 43 sites in China. They will be administered CMAB007 or placebo at a ratio of 2:1 for 24 weeks. During the whole study, all subjects will be on regularly fixed combination of med/high ICS and LABA (budesonide and formoterol fumarate powder for inhalation or salmeterol xinafoate and fluticasone propionate powder for inhalation). They should complete PEF measurement and patient diary daily and be assessed every 4 weeks. Spirometry, questionnaires, laboratory tests and so on will be performed. At selected sites, about 45 patients will be enrolled in a sub-study to assess the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic characterises of CMAB007. Anti-drug antibody (ADA) will be sampled at V1, V2 and V7 too.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CMAB007 + Seretide/Symbicort + Ventolin
CMAB007(recombinant humanized anti-IgE monoclonal antibody for injection ) will be at a fixed dose determined by the subjects' total IgE and weight at V0. All the subjects will be treated subcutaneously for 24 weeks. The 4-week total dose is 0.016mg/kg/IgE(IU/ml), administered every 2 or 4 weeks, for the subjects with total IgE level 60-700IU/ml. If the total IgE level is 700-1500IU/ml, they will be administered 375mg every 2 weeks. Symbicort(Budesonide and formoterol fumarate powder for inhalation) or Seretide (salmeterol xinafoate and fluticasone propionate powder for inhalation) will be used 1/2 inhalations bid as asthma-controlled drug during the whole study. Ventolin (Salbutamol sulphate aerosol) will be used as asthma rescue drug.

  3. change from baseline in asthma symptom scores(daytime, nocturnal and total) over the 24-week treatment period [ Time Frame: from baseline(0 week) to 24 weeks ]
    mean asthma symptom scores(daytime, nocturnal and total): (pre-treatment - post-treatment)/pre-treatment *100%

  4. change from baseline in Asthma Control Test(ACT) over the 24-week treatment period [ Time Frame: from baseline(0 week) to 24 weeks ]
    ACT total score: (pre-treatment - post-treatment)/pre-treatment *100%

  5. change from baseline in Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire(AQLQ) over the 24-week treatment period [ Time Frame: from baseline(0 week) to 24 weeks ]
    AQLQ total score and threshold score: (pre-treatment - post-treatment)/pre-treatment *100%

  6. investigator's and patient's Global Evaluation of Treatment Effectiveness(GETE) over 16 and 24-week treatment period [ Time Frame: from baseline(0 week) to 16 and 24 weeks ]
    GETE score at week 16 and 24

  7. change from baseline in rescue medication use over the 24-week treatment period [ Time Frame: from baseline(0 week) to 24 weeks ]
    mean rescue medication use(puff/day): (pre-treatment - post-treatment)/pre-treatment *100%

  8. change from baseline in lung function parameters(FEV1,FVC and FEV1/FVC) over the 24-week treatment period [ Time Frame: from baseline(0 week) to 24 weeks ]
    FEV1,FVC and FEV1/FVC values: (post-treatment - pre-treatment)/pre-treatment *100%

  9. change from baseline in mean peak expiratory flow(PEF) over the 24-week treatment period [ Time Frame: from baseline(0 week) to 24 weeks ]
