Brief Summary:
The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the long-term safety of fluticasone propionate (Fp) inhalation powder in 2 strengths and fluticasone propionate/salmeterol inhalation (FS) powder in 2 strengths when administered with the Teva multidose dry powder inhaler (MDPI) device over 26 weeks in patients with persistent asthma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Persistent Asthma Drug: Fp MDPI Drug: FS MDPI Drug: FLOVENT HFA Drug: ADVAIR DISKUS Drug: albuterol/salbutamol HFA Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This was a stratified, randomized, open-label, active drug-controlled Phase 3 study.

Patients who met all of the inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria at the screening visit completed a 14 day (±2 days) pretreatment run in period. During the run-in period, patients continued using their current asthma medications (ie, inhaled corticosteroid and/or other controller therapies) except for their SABA, which was replaced by the sponsor-provided albuterol (salbutamol) hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) inhaler to be used as needed for symptomatic relief of asthma symptoms during the run in and treatment periods.

Patients were assigned to inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) monotherapy or inhaled corticosteroid/long acting beta2 agonist (ICS/LABA) combination therapy and then to a mid- or high-treatment strength based on their current asthma maintenance therapy regimen. Patients in each strength of the ICS monotherapy cohort were randomly assigned in a 3:1 distribution to either the Fp MDPI or FLOVENT HFA treatment arm. Patients in each strength of the ICS/LABA combination cohort were randomly assigned in a 3:1 distribution to either the FS MDPI or ADVAIR DISKUS treatment arm. There was a total of 8 treatment arms following randomization.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Experiences (TEAE) During the Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 26 of the Treatment Period ]
    An adverse event was defined as any untoward medical occurrence that develops or worsens in severity during the conduct of a clinical study and does not necessarily have a causal relationship to the study drug. Severity was rated by the investigator on a scale of mild, moderate and severe, with severe= an AE which prevents normal daily activities. Relationship of AE to treatment was determined by the investigator. Serious AEs include death, a life-threatening adverse event, inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, persistent or significant disability or incapacity, a congenital anomaly or birth defect, OR an important medical event that jeopardized the patient and required medical intervention to prevent the previously listed serious outcomes.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Participants With Positive Swab Test Results for Oral Candidiasis [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1 pre-treatment), Weeks 2, 6, 10, 14, 18, 22 26, Endpoint ]

    Oropharyngeal examinations for visual evidence of oral candidiasis were conducted at each visit by a qualified healthcare professional. Any visual evidence of oral candidiasis during the oropharyngeal exam was evaluated by obtaining and analyzing a swab of the suspect area.

    This outcomes indicates how many participants had positive swab test results. The total number of participants who had oropharyngeal exams at each timepoint are specified in the timepoint field. Appropriate therapy was to be initiated immediately at the discretion of the investigator and was not to be delayed for culture confirmation. Participants with a culture-positive infection could continue participation in the study on appropriate anti-infective therapy, provided this therapy was not prohibited by the protocol.


  2. Participants With Potentially Clinically Significant Abnormal Vital Signs During the Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1 pre-treatment), Weeks 2, 6, 10, 14, 18, 22 26, Endpoint ]

    Data represents participants with potentially clinically significant (PCS) vital sign values during the Treatment period.

    Significance criteria:

    • Systolic blood pressure - high: >=180 and increase >=20 mmHg
    • Systolic blood pressure - low: <=90 and decrease >=20 mmHg
    • Diastolic blood pressure - high: >=105 and increase of >=15 mmHg
    • Diastolic blood pressure - low: <=50 and decrease of >=15 mmHg
    • Pulse - high: >=120 and increase of >= 15 beats/minute from baseline
    • Pulse - low: <=50 and decrease of >=15 beats/minute

  3. Shifts From Baseline to Endpoint in Electrocardiogram (ECG) Findings [ Time Frame: Screening (Day -14), Endpoint (week 26 if study was completed) ]
    A 12 lead ECG was conducted at the screening visit and week 26 or the early termination visit. A qualified physician at a central diagnostic center was responsible for interpreting the ECG. The worst post-baseline finding for the participant is summarized. Endpoint refers to the last observation carried forward.

  4. Analysis of 24-Hour Urine Cortisol Free Over the 26-Week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1, pre-treatment), Weeks 14 and 26 and early termination visit if applicable ]

    Samples for 24-hour urine cortisol were collected at baseline (Day 1, pretreatment), and Weeks 14 and 26. For participants requiring early termination (ET), this evaluation was performed at the ET visit. For participants requiring ET for safety reasons, the visit was not delayed in order to collect the 24-hour urine cortisol.

    The analysis is based on a mixed model for repeated measures (MMRM) model with adjustment for visit, treatment, and a treatment*visit interaction. The urine cortisol result is log transformed prior to analysis and the results are back transformed after modeling. An unstructured covariance matrix is used in the MMRM model.


  5. Change From Baseline in Trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Minute (FEV1) Over the 26-Week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1 pre-treatment), Weeks 2, 6, 10, 14, 18, 22 26, early termination visit if applicable ]

    Spirometry measurements were obtained before the AM dose of study drug for the randomization visit (Day 1), at each of the treatment visits and at the early termination visit if applicable. At each visit where FEV1 was assessed, the highest acceptable results from each session were recorded.

    The analysis is based on a mixed model for repeated measures (MMRM) with adjustment for baseline FEV1, sex, age, (pooled) investigational center, visit, treatment, and treatment-by-visit. An unstructured covariance matrix is used in the MMRM model.

Criteria for Randomization:

Patients were randomized into the study if they met all of the following criteria:

  1. The patient continued to be in general good health, meeting the entry criteria.
  2. The patient continued to have a predose/pre-albuterol FEV1 at the randomization visit (RV) that was ≥40% of predicted normal.
  3. The patient had no clinically significant abnormal laboratory test results or ECG findings at the screening visit.
  4. The patient had no significant changes in asthma medications during run-in, excluding the albuterol/salbutamol HFA (90 mcg ex actuator) or equivalent used as rescue medication as supplied per protocol.
  5. The patient did not have a upper respiratory tract infection (URI) or lower respiratory tract infection (LRI) during the run in period. Patients who developed a URI or LRI during the run in period could be discontinued from the study and allowed to re-screen 2 weeks after resolution of symptoms.

The patient had no asthma exacerbation during the run in period, defined as any worsening of asthma requiring any significant treatment other than rescue albuterol/salbutamol HFA (90 mcg ex actuator) or equivalent or the patient's run-in MDPI. This included requiring the use of systemic corticosteroids and/or emergency department (ED) visit or hospitalization or an increase in the patient's regularly prescribed nonsteroidal maintenance treatment. Urgent care/ED visits where the treatment was limited to a single dose of nebulized albuterol/salbutamol did not meet the criteria of an asthma exacerbation.

    • completion of AM and PM asthma symptom scores on 4 or more of the 7 days immediately preceding the RV.
    • completion of rescue medication use (whether used or not) on 4 or more of the 7 days immediately preceding the RV.
