This study is a Phase 3 clinical trial which aims to evaluate a potential new medicine for severe asthma and is not yet approved to treat patients with asthma.
GSK3511294 (also known as the study drug) is a type of medicine called a monoclonal antibody that is made in the laboratory. It works by blocking a specific protein in the body called interleukin-5 which is involved in the severity of asthma and inflammation of the lungs.
The study drug works the same way as three already approved asthma medications: mepolizumab, reslizumab, and benralizumab. These medications are taken every 4 to 8 weeks. However, it is hoped that the effect of the study drug will last over a longer period of time (once every 26 weeks).
