Brief Summary:

This is an interventional, randomized, parallel group, treatment, Phase 3b/4, double blind, 2-arm study to assess the effect of dupilumab compared to standard of care therapy on preventing or slowing the rate of lung function decline in adult patients with uncontrolled moderate to severe asthma.

The estimated duration is 4±1 weeks of screening and run-in period, followed by a 3-year double blinded treatment period. There will be a post-treatment follow-up (FU) period up to 12 weeks.

    The AQLQ (S) was designed as a self-administered patient reported outcome to measure the functional impairments that are most troublesome to patients as a result of their asthma. A global score is calculated ranging from 1 to 7. Higher scores indicate better quality of life.

Patients requiring a third controller for their asthma will be considered eligible for this study, and it should also be on stable dose ≥1 month prior to Visit 1. Patients requiring an additional controller as a fourth controller (Montelukast) for another type 2 comorbid condition such as allergic rhinitis will be considered eligible for this study, and should be on a stable dose for ≥1 month prior to Visit 1.
  • Pre-bronchodilator forced expiratory volume (FEV1) ≤ 80% of predicted normal for adults at Visits 1 and 2, prior to randomization
  • Asthma Control Questionnaire 5-question version (ACQ-5) score ≥1.5 at Visits 1 and 2, prior to randomization.
  • Variable airflow obstruction as documented by one or more of the following (at least 1 needs to be met):

Exclusion Criteria:

Participants are excluded from the study if any of the following criteria apply:

  • History or clinical evidence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) including Asthma-COPD Overlap Syndrome (ACOS) or any other significant lung disease (eg, emphysema, lung fibrosis, sarcoidosis, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, bronchiectasis, Churg-Strauss Syndrome).

Examples include, but are not limited to, participants with short life expectancy, uncontrolled diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, severe renal conditions (eg, participants on dialysis), or other severe endocrinological, gastrointestinal, metabolic, pulmonary, psychiatric, or lymphatic diseases. The specific justification for participants excluded under this criterion will be noted in the study documents (chart notes, case report forms [CRFs], etc).
  • Patients with active tuberculosis (TB) or non-tuberculous mycobacterial infection, or a history of incompletely treated TB will be excluded from the study unless it is well documented by a specialist that the participant has been adequately treated and can now start treatment with a biologic agent, in the medical judgment of the Investigator and/or infectious disease specialist. Tuberculosis testing will be performed on a country by country basis, according to local guidelines if required by regulatory authorities or ethics boards, or if TB is suspected by the investigator
  • Known or suspected immunodeficiency, including history of invasive opportunistic infections (eg, histoplasmosis, listeriosis, coccidioidomycosis, pneumocystosis, and aspergillosis) despite infection resolution, or otherwise recurrent infections of abnormal frequency or prolonged duration suggesting an immune-compromised status, as judged by the Investigator.

  • History of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or positive HIV 1/2 serology at Visit 1 (screening visit).
  • Diagnosed with, suspected of, or at high risk of endoparasitic infection, and/or use of antiparasitic drugs within 2 weeks before Visit 1 (screening visit) or during the screening and run-in period
  • Current smoker (cigarette or e-cigarette) or cessation of smoking within 6 months prior to Visit 1.
  • Previous smoker with a smoking history >10 pack-years.
  • History of systemic hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis to dupilumab or any other biologic therapy, including any excipient.
  • Any biologic therapy (including experimental treatments and dupilumab) or any other biologic therapy/immunosuppressant/immunomodulators within 4 weeks prior to V1 or 5 half-lives, whichever is longer.
  • Treatment with a live (attenuated) vaccine within 4 weeks before Visit 1 (screening visit) or during the screening period.
