Amgen Identifier:
First received: August 5, 2010
Last updated: April 28, 2015
Last verified: April 2015
The purpose of this study is to determine if AMG 827 is effective compared to placebo as measured by change in Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ) composite scores.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: AMG 827
Drug: Placebo
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Phase 2 Study to Determine the Safety and Efficacy of AMG 827 in Subjects With Inadequately Controlled Asthma

Further study details as provided by Amgen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary objective is to determine if AMG 827 is effective compared to placebo as mesasured by change in Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ) composite scores from baseline to week 12. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the efficacy of AMG 827 as measured by Pre- and post-bronchodilator FEV1 (forced expiratory volume in 1 second) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • Evaluate the efficacy of AMG 827 as measured by am and pm Peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • Evaluate the efficacy of AMG 827 as measured by use of rescue Short Acting β-Agonist (SABA) use [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • Evaluate the efficacy of AMG 827 as measured by daily asthma symptoms (aggregate/night and individual) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • Evaluate the efficacy of AMG 827 as measured by Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (AQLQ) score [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
