Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline, as Measured by the Percentage of Participants Requiring Rescue With Corticosteroids, and as Measured by the Time to Deviation From the Protocol Prescribed Steroid Tapering Regimen [ Time Frame: 6 months of blinded treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA) Exacerbation Rates During Double-blind Treatment Period and Open-label Treatment Period [ Time Frame: 6 months, 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) From Baseline, Measured at 3 and 6 Months of Treatment [ Time Frame: 3 months, 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to Steroid Free State. [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change From Baseline in Average Oral Corticosteroid Use. [ Time Frame: 6 months, 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of Participants Responding to Omalizumab, as Defined by a Reduction in Oral Corticosteroid Dose Use of 50% or More as Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: 6 months, 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 14
Study Start Date: November 2008
Study Completion Date: July 2010
Primary Completion Date: July 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Omalizumab

Eligible participants received a maximum dose of 600 mg omalizumab via subcutaneous injection for 6 months in the double-blind phase of the study. The study medication was to be administered at the same time of day. Study medication was injected subcutaneously into the upper arm in the area of the deltoid or to the thigh. A maximum 600 mg dose required 4 injections. All participants who entered the study received itraconazole twice daily, while receiving oral corticosteroids, with a maximum daily dose of 400 mg.

Participants who completed double-blinded phase, entered open-label treatment period of 6 months and continued the same regimen of omalizumab of double-blinded phase.

Drug: Omalizumab
Omalizumab subcutaneous injections of 600 mg daily.
Other Names:
  • Xolair
  • IGE025
Drug: Itraconazole
Itraconazole twice daily with a maximum daily dose of 400 mg.
Other Name: Sporanox
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Eligible participants received placebo comparator via subcutaneous injection for 6 months in the double-blind phase of the study. The study medication was to be administered at the same time of day. Study medication was injected subcutaneously into the upper arm in the area of the deltoid or to the thigh. All participants who entered the study received itraconazole twice daily, while on oral corticosteroids, with a maximum daily dose of 400 mg.
Drug: Placebo
Placebo subcutaneous injections blinded to match experimental arm dosing regimen.
Drug: Itraconazole
Itraconazole twice daily with a maximum daily dose of 400 mg.
Other Name: Sporanox
