A Study to Measure Serum Periostin, Asthma-Related Biomarkers and Response to Prednisolone in Adult and Adolescent Patients With Severe Oral Corticosteroid-Dependent Asthma
A STUDY TO MEASURE SERUM PERIOSTIN, ASTHMA-RELATED BIOMARKERS AND RESPONSE TO PREDNISOLONE IN ADULT AND ADOLESCENT PATIENTS WITH SEVERE ORAL CORTICOSTEROID-DEPENDENT ASTHMA
This interventional, open study will evaluate clinical data in relation to biomarkers in patients 12 to 75 years of age with severe oral corticosteroid (OCS) - dependent asthma. Patients with uncontrolled asthma will be offered an additional escalation of OCS at a dose of 0.5 mg/kg for 7 days. Patients enrolled in this study would be eligible to be enrolled in a future placebo-controlled intervention study designed to measure the steroid-sparing effect of lebrikizumab.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult and adolescent patients , >/=12 to </=75 years of age at the time of informed consent

  • History of asthma treatment with high doses of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS ) (>/=1500 mcg beclomethasone dipropionate daily, or equivalent) and long-acting beta-2 agonists (LABAs), with or without an additional controller, for at least six months before Screening
  • Chronic treatment with maintenance oral corticosteroids (OCS) for at least six months before the time of informed consent ; (baseline OCS dose: adults 10 to 40 mg/day, adolescents 5 to 40 mg/day daily dose equivalent)
  • Compliance with OCS therapy will be based on prior detectable levels of serum prednisolone, cortisol suppression, or observation of Cushingoid appearance consistent with regular systemic steroid use
  • Diagnosis of refractory asthma (Heaney et al 2010) with OCS dependence on minimal effective or maximum tolerated dose
  • Confirmed (by chest x-ray) absence of other significant lung disease
