Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate the onset and maintenance of effect of benralizumab on lung function, blood eosinophils, asthma control metrics and quality of life during 12-week treatment in patients with uncontrolled, severe asthma with eosinophilic inflammation. A subset of patients will take part in body plethysmography substudy to further investigate the effect on lung function.

Drug: Benralizumab
Benralizumab administered subcutaneously at Visit 1 (Day 0), Visit 8 (Day28 +/- 3 days) and Visit 9 (Day 56 +/- 3 days)

Placebo Comparator: Placebo arm
Placebo administered subcutaneously
Other: Placebo
Placebo administered subcutaneously at Visit 1 (Day 0), Visit 8 (Day28 +/- 3 days) and Visit 9 (Day 56 +/- 3 days)




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline (Visit 4) to Day 28 (Visit 8), Day 56 (Visit 9), and Day 84 (Visit 10) in Pre-BD FEV1 [ Time Frame: From first IP dose to Day 84 ]
    The average over the mean differences between benralizumab and placebo for change from baseline in pre-BD FEV1 is used to determine if the study is positive and to determine maintenance of effect. The first post baseline time point where the p-value for the mean difference between benralizumab and placebo is less than or equal to 0.05 is used to determine time to onset of effect.

  2. Change From Baseline (Visit 4) to End of Treatment Day 84 (Visit 10) in Residual Volume (RV) [ Time Frame: From first IP dose to Day 84 ]
    Body plethysmography was performed for sub-study patients. Lung volume subdivisions measures were performed by the investigator or qualified designee according to ATS/ERS guidelines.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Change From Baseline to End of Treatment in Eosinophils Counts [ Time Frame: From first IP dose to Day 84 ]
    Percent change from baseline to Day 84

  2. Change From Baseline (Visit 4) to Post Baseline Visits in Pre-BD FEV1 [ Time Frame: From first IP dose to Day 84 ]
    Post baseline visits include Day 3, Day 7, Day 14, Day 28, Day 56, Day 84. [Note: Day 28, 56, 84 are presented in the Primary measure.]

  3. Change From Baseline to Post Baseline for Pre-BD FVC [ Time Frame: From first IP dose to Day 84 ]
    Post baseline visits include Day 3, Day 7, Day 14, Day 28, Day 56, and Day 84.

  4. Percentage of Pre-BD FEV1 Responder [ Time Frame: From first IP dose to Day 84 ]

  5. Change From Baseline in ACQ-6 [ Time Frame: From first IP dose to Day 84 ]
    ACQ-6 contains one bronchodilator question and 5 symptom questions. Questions are rated from 0 (totally controlled) to 6 (severely uncontrolled). Mean ACQ-6 score is the average of the responses. Mean scores of <=0.75 indicates well-controlled asthma, scores between 0.75 to <=1.5 indicate partly controlled asthma, and >1.5 indicates not well controlled asthma.

  6. Change From Baseline in St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) [ Time Frame: From first IP dose to Day 84 ]
    The SGRQ is designed to measure health impairment in patients with asthma and COPD. It contains two parts: Part 1 (Questions 1 to 8) covers the patients' recollection of their symptoms over a preceding 4 weeks; Part 2, 42 items, relates to the daily activity and psychosocial impacts of the individual's respiratory condition. Total score is presented as a percentage of overall impairment, in which 100 represents the worst possible health status, while 0 indicates the best.
