Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MTPS9579A Drug: MTPS9579A
MTPS9579A IV infusion will be administered at the randomization visit (Week 2), Week 6, and every 4 weeks through Week 46.

Placebo Comparator: Placebo Drug: Placebo
Placebo matching MTPS9579A will be administered at the randomization visit (Week 2), Week 6, and every 4 weeks thereafter through Week 46.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to First CompEx Event [ Time Frame: Randomization visit [Week 2] to end of treatment [Week 50] ]
    A composite endpoint is defined as time from randomization to first asthma exacerbation or diary worsening

Secondary Outcome Measures :

  2. Time to First Asthma Exacerbation [ Time Frame: From randomization visit [Week 2] to end of treatment [Week 50] ]
  3. Absolute and Relative Change in Pre-Bronchodilator Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) [ Time Frame: From randomization visit [Week 2] to end of treatment [Week 50] ]
  4. Absolute and Relative Change in Fractional Exhaled Nitric Oxide (FeNO) [ Time Frame: Randomization [Week 2] to end of treatment [Week 50] ]
  5. Percentage of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to approximately Week 58 ]
  6. Serum Concentration of MTPS9579A [ Time Frame: Weeks 2, 3, 6, 10, 14, 22, 30, 38, 50, 54 ]
