Brief Summary:
Phase 2 study, to examine the prophylactic efficacy, safety and tolerability of PrEP-001 in asthmatics who have been infected with the human rhinovirus (HRV16) after receiving two doses of the study drug/placebo.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Asthma Drug: PrEP-001 Drug: G-004 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Screening took place up to 90 days before quarantine, where volunteers were asked to complete an informed consent and undergo scheduled screening assessments to determine their eligibility.

Eligible volunteers were invited to test and record their respiratory symptoms and peak expiratory flow (PEF), medications and any adverse events in diary cards from Day -14 to Day -5.

They attended Quarantine on Day -4/-3, received the study drug/placebo intra nasally on Day -2 and Day -1 and subsequently challenged with HRV16 on Day 0. Randomisation to receive study drug/placebo was 1:1.

Volunteers remained in the quarantine unit for 8 days after inoculation.

PEF self-testing continued from Day 9 to Day 28.

On Day 20 (±3 days) and Day 28 (±5 days), volunteers attended follow up visits where they were assessed by a study physician for well-being, on-going symptoms and adverse events.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: IMP - PrEP-001

In Viral Challenge arm cohort:

A nasal dose of 6400 μg PrEP-001 equally divided over both nostrils on 2 consecutive days (Day -2 and Day -1).

In the Safety arm's first dose cohort:

A nasal dose of 6400 μg PrEP-001 equally divided over both nostrils on 2 consecutive days (Day -2 and Day -1).

Then assuming no significant safety issues with the lower dose (as determined by blinded review by the DSMB team), the Safety arm's second dose cohort will consist of:

A nasal dose of 12800 μg PrEP-001 equally divided over both nostrils on 2 consecutive days (Day -2 and Day -1)

Drug: PrEP-001
A spray dried powder for intranasal administration formulated from an aqueous mixture of pre-gelatinized waxy maize starch and the drug substance delivered using a single dose nasal powder device.

Placebo Comparator: Placebo - G-004

In the Viral Challenge arm and each Safety Arm cohort:

A nasal dose of placebo equally divided over both nostrils on 2 consecutive days (Day -2 and Day -1).

Drug: G-004
A spray dried pre-gelatinized waxy maize starch powder (G-001) in the single dose nasal powder device
