First Time in Human (FTIH) Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, Immunogenicity, Pharmacokinetics (PK) and Pharmacodynamics (PD) of GSK3511294 Administered Subcutaneously (SC) in Subjects With Mild to Moderate Asthma

Overview

GSK3511294 is a humanized monoclonal antibody antagonist of Interleukin (IL)-5 which is known to block binding of IL-5 to the IL-5 receptor complex, causing a reduction in the circulating population of eosinophils. This is a single ascending dose FTIH study to investigate safety, tolerability, immunogenicity, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of GSK3511294, administered SC in subjects with mild to moderate asthma maintained on a low-medium daily dose of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) or ICS/long acting beta-agonist (LABA), and short acting beta-agonist (SABA). The subjects will attend a pre-screen visit of up to 12 weeks before dosing for assessment of blood eosinophils. Eligible subjects with blood eosinophils >=200 cells per microliter (cells/µL) will undergo a screening period of up to 4 weeks. The subjects will then be randomized into 5 cohorts. In each cohort, the subjects will be randomized to receive a single dose of GSK3511294 or placebo in a ratio of 3:1. The follow-up period will be up to 40 weeks post dose and will be dose-dependent. The scheduled maximum duration for each subject will be up to 44 weeks including up to 28 days of screening.
