Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Annual Asthma Exacerbation Rate in Adult and Adolescent Patients With Uncontrolled Asthma [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52. ]
    The annual exacerbation rate is based on unadjudicated exacerbations reported by the investigator in the eCRF. The analysis is based on the primary population (Full Analysis Set)

  2. Annual Asthma Exacerbation Rate in Adult and Adolescent Patients With Uncontrolled Asthma in Subjects With Baseline Eosinophils < 300 Cells/uL [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52. ]
    The annual exacerbation rate is based on unadjudicated exacerbations reported by the investigator in the eCRF. This analysis is based on subjects with baseline eosinophils < 300 cells/uL


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Change From Baseline at Week 52 in Pre-dose/Pre-bronchodilator (Pre-BD) Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) (L) (Key Secondary Endpoint) [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    Mean change from baseline in FEV1 as compared to placebo at Week 52. FEV1 is defined as the volume of air exhaled from the lungs in the first second of a forced expiration.

  2. Mean Change From Baseline at Week 52 in Standardized Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire for 12 Years and Older (AQLQ(S)+12) Total Score (Key Secondary Endpoint) [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    Mean change from baseline in AQLQ(S)+12 as compared to placebo at Week 52. The AQLQ(S)+12 is a questionnaire that measures the health-related quality of life experienced by asthma subjects. The total score is defined as the average of all 32 questions in the AQLQ(S)+12 questionnaire. AQLQ(S)+12 is a 7-point scale questionnaire, ranging from 7 (no impairment) to 1 (severe impairment).

  3. Mean Change From Baseline at Week 52 in Asthma Control Questionnaire-6(ACQ-6) (Key Secondary Endpoint) [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    Change from baseline in ACQ-6 as compared to placebo at Week 52. The ACQ-6 captures asthma symptoms and short-acting β2-agonist use via subject-report. Questions are weighted equally and scored from 0 (totally controlled) to 6 (severely uncontrolled). The ACQ-6 score is the mean of the responses.

  4. Mean Change From Baseline at Week 52 in Asthma Symptom Diary (Key Secondary Endpoint) [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    Mean change from baseline at Week 52 in Asthma Symptom Diary. The Asthma Symptom Diary comprises of 10 items (5 items in the morning; 5 items in the evening). Asthma symptoms during night time and daytime are recorded by the patient each morning and evening in the daily diary. A daily ASD score is the mean of the 10 items. Responses for all 10 items are required to calculate the daily ASD score; otherwise, it is treated as missing. For the 7-day average asthma symptom score, scoring is done with no imputation using the mean of at least 4 of the 7 daily ASD scores as a mean weekly item score. The 7-day average ASD score ranges from 0 to 4, where 0 indicates no asthma symptoms.

  5. Time to First Asthma Exacerbation [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    Time to first occurrence of asthma exacerbation post-randomisation, presented as number of subjects with at least one asthma exacerbation as reported by the investigator in the eCRF.

    Mean change from baseline at Study Week 52 in FeNO (ppb) measured at site

  7. Mean Change From Baseline in Daily Rescue Medication Use (Weekly Means) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    Daily rescue medication use is defined as: Number of night inhaler puffs + 2 x [number of night nebulizer times] + number of daytime inhaler puffs + 2 x [number of day nebulizer times]. Weekly means are calculated using at least 4 of 7 days of daily rescue medication use.

  8. Mean Change From Baseline in Work Productivity Loss Due to Asthma at Week 52 [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    WPAI+CIQ (Work Productivity and Activity Impairment plus Classroom Impairment Questionnaire) contains 10 questions. Work productivity loss is derived by sum of percentage of missed work due to asthma and product of percentage of actual working hours times degree of asthma affecting work productivity while working. Percentage of missed work due to asthma is calculated by number of hours missed work due to asthma divided by total number of hours missed work plus number of hours actually worked.

  9. Mean Change From Baseline in Class Productivity Loss Due to Asthma at Week 52 [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    WPAI+CIQ (Work Productivity and Activity Impairment plus Classroom Impairment Questionnaire) contains 10 questions. Class productivity loss is derived by sum of percentage of missed class hours due to asthma and product of percentage of actual hours in class times degree of asthma affecting productivity while in class. Percentage of missed hours in class due to asthma is calculated by number of hours in class missed due to asthma divided by total number of hours in class missed plus number of hours actually in class.

  10. Activity Impairment at Week 52 [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    WPAI+CIQ (Work Productivity and Activity Impairment plus Classroom Impairment Questionnaire) contains 10 questions. Activity impairment is the degree health affected regular activities (other than work or class) rated from 0 to 10, with 0 meaning no effect, divided by 10, and then expressed as a percentage.

  11. Pharmacokinetics of Tezepelumab [ Time Frame: Pre-dose samples at Baseline, Week 4, Week 12, Week 24, Week 36, Week 52, Week 64 ]

  12. Mean Change From Baseline at Week 52 in EQ-5D-5L VAS [ Time Frame: At Study Week 52 ]
    Mean change from baseline at Study Week 52 in EQ-5D-5L VAS. EQ-5D-5L visual analogue scale (VAS) allows subjects to rate current health status on a scale of 0-100, with 0 being the worst imaginable health state.

  13. Clinicians Global Impression of Change at Week 52 [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    CGIC (Clinical global impression of change) is an overall evaluation of response to treatment, conducted by investigator using 7-point rating scale, ranging from 1 (very much improved), to 7 (very much worse)

  14. Patients Global Impression of Change at Week 52 [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    PGIC (Patient global impression of change) is an overall evaluation of response to treatment, conducted by the patient using 7-point rating scale, ranging from 1 (very much improved), to 7 (very much worse).

  15. Patients Global Impression of Severity at Week 52 [ Time Frame: At Study Week 52 ]
    PGI-S (Patient global impression of severity) is an overall evaluation of patient's perception of overall symptom severity using a 6-point rating scale, ranging from 0 = No symptoms, 1=Very mild symptoms, 2=Mild symptoms, 3=Moderate symptoms, 4=Severe symptoms, 5=Very severe symptoms

  16. Mean Change From Baseline at Week 52 in Blood Eosinophils (Cells/uL) [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]

Weekly means are calculated using at least 4 of the 7 days of PEF data.

  21. Mean Change From Baseline in Night Time Awakenings (Weekly Means) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    Mean change from baseline in night time awakenings due to asthma at Study Week 52. Night-time awakenings percentage defined as number of nights with awakenings due to asthma and requiring rescue medication divided by number of nights with data and multiplied by 100%. At least 4 out of 7 days of data is required to calculate a weekly mean.

  22. Immunogenecity of Tezepelumab [ Time Frame: Baseline, and from time of first dose at Week 0 to end of study at Week 64. ]
    Anti-drug antibodies (ADA) responses at baseline and post baseline. Persistently positive is defined as positive at >=2 post baseline assessments (with >=16 weeks between the first and the last positive) or positive at last post baseline assessment. Transiently positive is defined as having at least one post baseline ADA positive assessment and not fulfilling the conditions of persistently positive. Treatment boosted ADA defined as baseline positive ADA that was boosted to a 4 fold or higher level following treatment. Treatment emergent ADA defined as sum of treatment induced ADA and treatment boosted ADA.

  23. Proportion of Subjects Who Had no Asthma Exacerbations [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
    The proportion of subjects who have no exacerbations is presented as the percentage of subjects with no exacerbations. This is defined as subjects who meet both the following criteria: (1) completed the 52 week treatment period and (2) did not report an exacerbation during this period.

  24. Annual Asthma Exacerbation Rate Resulting in Emergency Room Visit or Hospitalisation [ Time Frame: From randomisation to Study Week 52 ]
