Active Comparator: 2
Fluticasone 100 μg
Drug: Fluticasone propionate 100
Fluticasone 100ug is a HFA pMDI that delivers 50ug of Fluticasone propionate per actuation. Patients will take 2 actuations BID for 12 weeks.
Other Name: SKP Fluticasone 100

Active Comparator: 3
Formoterol 10 μg
Drug: Formoterol fumarate 10
Formoterol 10ug is a HFA pMDI that delivers 5ug of Formoterol fumarate per actuation. Patients will take 2 actuations BID for 12 weeks.
Other Name: SKP Formoterol 10

Placebo Comparator: 4
Drug: Placebo
Placebo is a HFA pMDI that delivers placebo aerosol. Patients will take 2 actuations BID for 12 weeks.
Other Name: SKP Placebo

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 s (FEV-1) over 12 weeks recorded in electronic diary. Discontinuation due to lack of efficacy [ Time Frame: Week 0 and 12 visits ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Other pulmonary function tests including forced vital capacity (FVC) and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR). [ Time Frame: Whole duration of study ]
  2. Clinical endpoints (frequency of asthma exacerbations and patient data captured in diary including daily morning and evening PEFR). [ Time Frame: Whole duration of study ]
  3. Safety variables including adverse events, ECGs, clinical laboratory tests and vital signs. [ Time Frame: Whole duration of study ]
  4. Serial 12-hour FEV-1 area under the curve (AUC). [ Time Frame: Week 0, 2 and 12 visits ]
