A Study of a New Asthma Medicine in Asthmatics Whose Asthma Worsens With Exercise

This study has been withdrawn prior to enrollment.
(Study was cancelled prior to enrolling any subjects)

The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that the combination of inhaled fluticasone furoate/vilanterol (100 mcg/25 mcg) once daily provides superior protection throughout the day against bronchoconstriction induced by exercise compared with fluticasone propionate 250 mcg twice daily in adolescent and adult subjects aged 12 to 50 diagnosed with persistent asthma.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: Fluticasone Furoate/Vilanterol Inhalation Powder
Drug: Fluticasone Propionate Inhalation Powder
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Double-Dummy, Crossover Comparison of Fluticasone Furoate/Vilanterol 100/25 mcg Once Daily Versus Fluticasone Propionate 250 mcg Twice Daily in Asthmatic Adolescent and Adult Subjects With Exercise-Induced Bronchoconstriction

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximal percent decrease from baseline in FEV1 following exercise challenge at 12 hours post-dose [ Time Frame: At the end of treatment Week 4 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximal percent decrease from baseline in FEV1 following exercise challenge at 1 hour and 23 hours post-dose [ Time Frame: At the end of treatment Week 4 ]
  • Time required for recovery to within 5% of the pre-exercise baseline FEV1 from the time of the maximal percentage decrease from baseline following the challenge at 1 hour, 12 hours, and 23 hours post-dose [ Time Frame: At the end of treatment Week 4 ]
  • AUC (0-60 minutes) for percentage decrease from baseline in FEV1 after exercise at 1 hour, 12 hours, and 23 hours post-dose [ Time Frame: At the end of treatment Week 4 ]
  • Evaluation of a categorical treatment response using the percentage of subjects who demonstrate a decrease from the pre-exercise baseline in FEV1 of 1) <10%, 2) 10 to <20%, and 3) =/>20%. [ Time Frame: At the end of treatment Week 4 ]
  • Maximal percent decrease from pre-randomized treatment baseline in FEV1 following exercise challenge at 1 hour, 12 hours, and 23 hours post-dose. [ Time Frame: At the end of treatment Week 4 ]
