Background

Asthma is a condition that makes breathing difficult due to airways narrowing due to inflammation and swelling. For most asthma patients, their treatment is successful and can provide long-term control. However, 10- 15% of asthmatics still show symptoms despite using maximum recommended treatments. 

This study seeks to investigate the potential benefits of a potential new treatment (Itolizumab) to help manage uncontrolled moderate-to-severe asthma.

The study seeks adults aged 18 to 75 years old who are diagnosed with moderate-to-severe asthma and are currently using asthma medication. Participants must attend a minimum of 9 study site visits at the research site over approximately 12 weeks.
