Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study was to assess the clinical effect of QAW039 in non-atopic asthmatics taking low dose Inhaled Corticosteroid (ICS) as background therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Asthma Drug: QAW039 Drug: Placebo QAW039 Drug: Fluticasone 250 mcg Drug: Fluticasone 100 mcg Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This was a multi-centre, randomised, placebo-controlled, double blind, 3-arm study designed to compare the efficacy and safety of a once daily dose of QAW039 with placebo in non-atopic and atopic asthmatics both inadequately controlled despite receiving a low dose ICS background therapy, over a 12 week treatment period. Efficacy and safety of a once daily dose of QAW039 was also compared with an increased dose of ICS in atopic asthmatics taking low dose ICS as background therapy.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Trough FEV1 (L) in Non-atopic Patients at Week 12 - Full Analysis Set [ Time Frame: baseline,12 weeks ]

    Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) is calculated as the volume of air forcibly exhaled in one second as measured by a spirometer. Baseline is defined as the last available FEV1 measurement taken prior to the first dose of randomized study drug.

    Data within 6 hr of rescue medication use is excluded from this analysis. For subjects with missing trough FEV1 (L) at Week 12, the last post baseline observation were used (LOCF).

    Estimates are from a mixed effects model with treatment, subject population (non-atopic vs. atopic), treatment by subject population interaction, baseline trough FEV1 and region as fixed effects and center nested within region as random effects. Full analysis set included all randomized subjects who received at least one dose of study drug.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Trough FEV1 (L) in Atopic Patients at Week 12 - Full Analysis Set [ Time Frame: baseline,12 weeks ]

    Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) is calculated as the volume of air forcibly exhaled in one second as measured by a spirometer. Baseline is defined as the FEV1 measurement taken prior to the first dose of randomized study drug.

    Data within 6 hr of rescue medication use is excluded from this analysis. For subjects with missing trough FEV1 (L) at Week 12, the last post baseline observation were used (LOCF).

    Estimates are from a mixed effects model with treatment, subject population (non-atopic vs. atopic), treatment by subject population interaction, baseline trough FEV1 and region as fixed effects and center nested within region as random effects. Full analysis set included all randomized subjects who received at least one dose of study drug.


  2. Change From Baseline in Trough FEV1 (L) in Non-atopic Compared to Atopic Patients at Week 12 - Full Analysis Set [ Time Frame: baseline,12 weeks ]

    Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) is calculated as the volume of air forcibly exhaled in one second as measured by a spirometer. Baseline is defined as the FEV1 measurement taken prior to the first dose of randomized study drug.

    Data within 6 hr of rescue medication use is excluded from this analysis. For subjects with missing trough FEV1 (L) at Week 12, the last post baseline observation were used (LOCF).

  3. Change From Baseline in ACQ-6 Score at Week 12 Non-atopic and Atopic Patients at Week 12 - Full Analysis Set [ Time Frame: baseline,12 weeks ]
    ACQ-6 consists of:5 items on symptoms, 1 item on rescue bronchodilator use, and 1 item on airway caliber (FEV1 % predicted). The ACQ was fully validated, including a minimal important difference (MID) or smallest change that could be considered clinically important (0.5). The ACQ was self-administered at the clinic and patients scored each item on a 7-point response scale: 0 = 'totally controlled' and 6 = 'severely uncontrolled.' Study staff scored question 7 based on % predicted FEV1 (ideally pre-bronchodilator). The total score=average of first 6 questions. Baseline=the ACQ-6 measurement taken prior to first dose of randomized study drug. The single missing score was interpolated by utilizing prior or subsequent completions of the questionnaire. Estimates were from a mixed effects model with treatment, subject population (non-atopic vs. atopic), treatment by subject population interaction, baseline ACQ-6 and region as fixed effects and center nested within region as random effects.

  4. Change From Baseline in ACQ-6 Score at Week 12 Non-atopic Compared to Atopic Patients at Week 12 - Full Analysis Set [ Time Frame: baseline,12 weeks ]
