Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Participants receiving GSK3511294 (Depemokimab) Biological: GSK3511294 (Depemokimab)
GSK3511294 (Depemokimab) will be administered using a pre-filled syringe.

Placebo Comparator: Participants receiving placebo Drug: Placebo
Matching placebo will be administered as a normal saline using a pre-filled syringe.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Annualized rate of clinically significant exacerbations over 52 weeks [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline in Saint (St.) George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) total score at Week 52 (scores on a scale) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and Week 52 ]
    The SGRQ is a well-established instrument, comprising 50 items designed to measure Quality of Life in participants with diseases of airway obstruction. It consists of two parts: Part 1 produces the symptom score and Part 2 produces the activity and impact score. A Total score is also calculated which summarizes the impact of the disease on overall health status. Scores are expressed as a percentage of overall impairment where 100 represents worst possible health status and zero indicates best possible health status. Higher scores indicate worst quality of life.

  2. Change from Baseline in Asthma Control Questionnaire-5 (ACQ-5) score at Week 52 (scores on a scale) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and Week 52 ]
    The ACQ-5 is a five-item questionnaire, which has been developed as a measure of participants' asthma control that can be quickly and easily completed. The questions are designed to be self-completed by the participant. The five questions enquire about the frequency and/or severity of symptoms (nocturnal awakening on waking in the morning, activity limitation, and shortness of breath, wheeze) over the previous week. The response options for all these questions consist of a zero (no impairment/limitation) to six (total impairment/ limitation) scale. Higher scores indicate more limitations.

  3. Change from Baseline in pre-bronchodilator forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) at Week 52 (liters) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and Week 52 ]
    FEV1 will be measured by spirometry.

  4. Annualized rate of exacerbations requiring hospitalization and/or Emergency department (ED) visit over 52 weeks [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ]

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   12 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Key inclusion Criteria:

  • Adults and adolescents greater than or equal to (>=)12 years of age, at the time of signing the informed consent/assent.
  • Participants must have a documented physician diagnosis of asthma for >=2 years that meets the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) guidelines or Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) guidelines and

    1. Have, or with high likelihood of having, asthma with an eosinophilic phenotype
    2. Have previously confirmed history of >=2 exacerbations requiring treatment with systemic corticosteroid (CS) (intramuscular [IM], intravenous [IV], or oral), in the 12 months prior to Visit 1, despite the use of medium to high-dose ICS. For participants receiving maintenance CS, the CS treatment for the exacerbations must have been a two-fold dose increase or greater.
  • Persistent airflow obstruction as indicated by:

    1. For participants >=18 years of age at Visit 1, a pre-bronchodilator FEV1 less than (<)80% predicted (The Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey [NHANES III]) recorded at Visit 1
    2. For participants 12-17 years of age at Visit 1:

      • A pre-bronchodilator FEV1 <90% predicted (NHANES III) recorded at Visit 1 OR
      • FEV1:Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) ratio <0.8 recorded at Visit 1.
  • A well-documented requirement for regular treatment with medium to high dose ICS (in the 12 months prior to Visit 1 with or without maintenance OCS). The maintenance ICS dose must be >=440 micrograms (mcg) Fluticasone propionate (FP) Hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) product daily, or clinically comparable (GINA). Participants who are treated with medium dose ICS will also need to be treated with LABA to qualify for inclusion.
  • Current treatment with at least one additional controller medication, besides ICS, for at least 3 months (for example [e.g.], LABA, LAMA, leukotriene receptor antagonist [LTRA], or theophylline).

Key randomization inclusion criteria:

  • For blood eosinophilic count:

    1. An elevated peripheral blood eosinophil count of >=300 cells/microliter (mcL) demonstrated in the past 12 months prior to Visit 1 that is related to asthma OR
    2. An elevated peripheral blood eosinophil count of >=150 cells/mcL at Screening Visit 1 that is related to asthma.
  • Evidence of airway reversibility or responsiveness as documented by either:

    1. Airway reversibility (FEV1>=12% and 200 milliliters [mL]) demonstrated at Visit 1 or Visit 2 using the Maximum Post Bronchodilator Procedure OR
    2. Airway reversibility (FEV1>=12% and 200 mL) documented in the 24 months prior to Visit 2 (randomization visit) OR
    3. Airway hyperresponsiveness (methacholine: Provocative concentration causing a 20% fall in FEV1 [PC20] of <8 milligrams (mg)/mL, histamine: PD20 of <7.8 micromoles, mannitol: decrease in FEV1 as per the labelled product instructions) documented in the 24 months prior to Visit 2 (randomization visit).

Key exclusion Criteria:

  • Presence of a known pre-existing, clinically important lung condition other than asthma. This includes (but is not limited to) current infection, bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, or diagnoses of emphysema or chronic bronchitis (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease other than asthma) or a history of lung cancer.

  • Participants with allergy/intolerance to the excipients of GSK3511294 or a any mAb or biologic.

Key radomization exclusion criteria:

  • QTcF >=450 msec or QTcF >=480 msec for participants with Bundle Branch Block, at randomization Visit 2 are excluded. Participants are excluded if an abnormal ECG finding from the 12-lead ECG conducted at Screening Visit 1 is considered to be clinically significant and would impact the participant's participation during the study, based on the evaluation of the Investigator.
  • Participants with a clinically significant asthma exacerbation in the 7 days prior to randomization should have their randomization visit delayed until the investigator considers the participant's asthma to be stable .
  • Any changes in the dose or regimen of Baseline ICS and/or additional controller medication (except for treatment of an exacerbation) during the run-in period.
