Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1b, single center study designed to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of GSK3923868 following repeat doses in mild asthmatics during experimental human rhinovirus 16 (HRV-16) infection. The study will be conducted in two parts. Part A will determine the efficacy of GSK3923868 administration after viral inoculation (i.e., therapeutic treatment) and Part B may be undertaken to determine the efficacy of GSK3923868 administration before viral inoculation (i.e., prophylactic treatment). The purpose of this study is to establish proof-of-mechanism that GSK3923868 treatment can reduce symptoms of Human Rhinovirus (HRV) infection in a controlled setting.

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 68 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

Part A: In therapeutic treatment cohorts (cohort 1 and 2) repeat doses of GSK3923868 are administered after experimental viral infection with increasing time windows between viral inoculation and the initiation of study drug. The treatment is initiated 2 and 4 days post-viral inoculation for cohort 1 and 2 respectively.

Part B: In prophylactic treatment cohort (cohort 3), treatment is initiated before inoculation with virus.

Of 3 cohorts planned, two cohorts will be performed (Cohort 1 and either Cohort 2 or 3). Cohort 1 data will be used to determine which cohort to progress to along with any study design changes.

Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Masking Description: The participants and site staff will be blinded to the study intervention.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo Controlled, Repeat Dose Phase 1b Study to Assess the Efficacy, Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Inhaled GSK3923868 During Experimental Human Rhinovirus Infection in Participants With Mild Asthma
Actual Study Start Date : June 9, 2022
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 27, 2023

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area under curve (AUC) of change from baseline (CfB) in total lower respiratory tract symptoms (LRTS) score from day of inoculation up to discharge [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Day 15 ]
    The LRTS includes cough, chest tightness, shortness of breath, wheezing, daily activity, and nighttime awakenings. Each symptom is assessed on a 4-point scale. The score ranges from 0 to 3, where higher points indicate more symptoms experienced and severity that restricts normal activities. Shortness of breath and wheezing will be measured on a 5-point scale and ranges from 0 to 4 in which 0 indicates no symptoms and 4 indicates symptoms at total rest and the highest level of disease severity. LRTS assessment is performed three times a day.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximal CfB in total LRTS score from day of inoculation up to discharge [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Day 15 ]
  2. AUC and maximal CfB in total upper respiratory tract symptoms (URTS) score from day of inoculation up to discharge [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Day 15 ]
    The URTS includes nasal discharge, nasal obstruction, sneezing and sore throat. Each symptom will be assessed on a 4-point scale, where 0 indicates no symptom and a higher point for more symptoms and severity that restricts normal activities.

  3. AUC and maximum decline from baseline in trough force expiratory volume (FEV1) from day of inoculation up to discharge [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Day 15 ]
  4. AUC and maximum decline from baseline in morning and evening peak expiratory flow (PEF) from day of inoculation up to discharge [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Day 15 ]
  5. Number of participants with adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to Day 22 ]
  6. Number of participants with clinically significant changes in vital signs [ Time Frame: Up to Day 22 ]
  7. Number of participants with clinically significant changes in electrocardiogram (ECG) [ Time Frame: Up to Day 22 ]
  8. Number of participants with clinically significant changes in clinical laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: Up to Day 22 ]

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • All Participant aged between 18 to 65 years of age (inclusive).
  • Participants with a diagnosis of asthma.
  • A screening pre-bronchodilator FEV1 greater than or equal to (≥) 65 percentage (%) predicted normal value.
  • Positive Methacholine challenge test, defined as ≥ 20% fall in FEV1 at a methacholine concentration less than or equal to (≤) 16 milligram/milliliter (mg/mL) at Screening.

If the methacholine challenge test is negative or the participant is unable to perform this test, bronchodilator reversibility is allowed as an alternative, assessed as follows:

  • Positive bronchodilator reversibility test, defined as an increase in FEV1 >12% and >200 mL from baseline, 10 to 15 minutes after administration of 400 micrograms (mcg) salbutamol (or equivalent).
  • Participants with positive skin prick test.
  • The HRV-16 neutralization antibody assay indicates that the participant will be susceptible to HRV-16 infection.
  • Participants with controlled asthma, using short-acting beta agonist (SABA) or intermittent inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) or ICS/ long-acting beta agonist (LABA) therapy.
  • Male and female- A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Participant capable of giving signed informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

All participants:

  • The presence of concurrent significant pulmonary diseases, other than asthma, including bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or other significant respiratory abnormalities.
  • Any significant abnormality altering the anatomy of the nose in a substantial way or nasopharynx that may interfere with the study.

  • Evidence of vaccinations within the 4 weeks prior to the planned date of viral challenge.
  • Intention to receive any vaccination before the last day of follow up.
  • Prior participation in another Human Viral Challenge study with a respiratory virus in the preceding 12 months.
