Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2b, Randomized, Double-blind Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Tralokinumab in Adults With Uncontrolled, Severe Asthma

Further study details as provided by MedImmune LLC:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Asthma Exacerbation [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    To compare the asthma exacerbation rate in participants treated with tralokinumab versus placebo


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Day 1 - Week 75 ]
    Safety and tolerability of tralokinumab

  • Pharmacokinetics of tralokinumab [ Time Frame: Day 1 - Week 75 ]
    Pharmacokinetics of tralokinumab measured by Cmax, AUC, t1/2, CL after first dose Pharmacokinetics of tralokinumab measured by Cmax, AUC, t1/2, CL after multiple doses

  • Effect of tralokinumab on pulmonary function as measured by FEV1, FEV6, FVC, IC, and PEF [ Time Frame: Day 1 - Week 52 ]
    To evaluate the effect of tralokinumab on FEV1: clinic spirometry, including pre- and post bronchodilator forced expiratory volume and and peak expiratory flow (PEF) and FEV1 measured at home.

  • Patient reported outcomes [ Time Frame: Week 2 - Week 75 ]
    Effect of tralokinumab on patient reported outcomes as measured by ACQ-6, EQ-5D, and AQLQ(S)

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Cohort 1
195 patients randomised 2:1 (tralokinumab high dose : placebo)
Drug: Tralokinumab
Tralokinumab is a human recombinant monoclonal antibody (MAb) of the immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) subclass that specifically binds human IL-13, blocking interactions with the IL-13 receptor
Active Comparator: Cohort 2
195 patients randomised 2:1 (tralokinumab low dose: placebo)
Drug: Tralokinumab
Tralokinumab is a human recombinant monoclonal antibody (MAb) of the immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) subclass that specifically binds human IL-13, blocking interactions with the IL-13 receptor

Detailed Description:
Interleukin-13 (IL-13) is a key mediator in the pathogenesis of established asthmatic disease. Tralokinumab is a human monoclonal antibody that blocks IL-13, which may result in improved control of asthma. This study will determine whether the addition of tralokinumab to standard asthma medications results in a reduced rate of asthma exacerbations in participants with severe asthma
