Description

Summary

To asses effectiveness and safety of tezepelumab in adult and adolescent participants with severe asthma including several under-studied populations in the United States.

Official Title

A Multicenter, Single-arm, Open-label, Post-Authorization, Phase 4 Effectiveness and Safety Study of Tezepelumab in Adult and Adolescent Participants With Severe Asthma Including Several Under-Studied Populations in the United States (PASSAGE)

Detailed Description

This is a multicenter, single-arm, open-label, Post-authorization, Phase 4 study to assess the effectiveness of tezepelumab in the United States (US) among a real-world population of adults and adolescent participants with asthma requiring medium-dose to high-dose inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), with additional controller(s) for at least 12 months with documented history of at least 2 asthma exacerbations during the year prior to enrolment. The total duration of the study for each participant wil... more

This is a multicenter, single-arm, open-label, Post-authorization, Phase 4 study to assess the effectiveness of tezepelumab in the United States (US) among a real-world population of adults and adolescent participants with asthma requiring medium-dose to high-dose inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), with additional controller(s) for at least 12 months with documented history of at least 2 asthma exacerbations during the year prior to enrolment. The total duration of the study for each participant will be approximately 56 weeks. Approximately 400 participants will be enrolled. Participants will receive tezepelumab via subcutaneous injection at the study site, over a 48-week treatment period. The study also includes a post-dosing follow-up period from Weeks 48 to 52.

Documented physician-diagnosed asthma for at least 12 months prior to enrollment and confirmed by the Investigator not to be due to alternative diagnoses.

Inclusion Criteria: Male or female participant must be 12 years of age or older, at the time of signing the informed consent form or assent. Documented physician-diagnosed asthma for at least 12 months prior to enrollment and confirmed by the Investigator not to be due to alternative diagnoses. Documented treatment with medium- to high dose ICS as per Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) guidelines (GINA 2021) for at least 12 months prior to enrollment. Use of additional asthma maintenance controller medication(s) in addition to ICS for at least 12 months prior to enrollment. The additional maintenance controller medication may be contained in a combination product (eg, ICS/ long-acting ß-agonist (LABA)). Documented history of at least 2 asthma exacerbations during the 12 months prior to enrollment. Physician decision that participant is eligible for treatment with tezepelumab according to the approved United States product insert (USPI). Currently receiving care from specialist physicians (eg, pulmonologists and/or allergists). Provision of signed and dated written informed consent form. Exclusion Criteria: Any contraindication to tezepelumab as per the US approved product label or in the opinion of the Investigator. Comorbid diagnosis of severe or very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) per GOLD guidelines (GOLD 2021). Use of biologics that are approved for the treatment of asthma within 4 months or 5 half- lives (whichever is longer) prior to enrollment. Participation in an interventional clinical trial for asthma within 12 months prior to enrollment. Judgment by the Investigator that the participant is unlikely to comply with study procedures, restrictions, and requirements.

Vincent Devlin, DO, is Board Certified in Allergy/Immunology as well as Pediatrics. He sees patients (infants through adults) on the main campus of Eisenhower Health in Rancho Mirage. Dr. Devlin earned a graduate degree in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology with a certificate in Vaccine Health and Policy from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, before completing medical school at New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine in Old Westbury, NY. He completed residency program in General Pediatrics at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, and a fellowship program in adult and pediatric Allergy and Immunology medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans.

While studying art history as an undergraduate, Dr. Devlin became increasingly interested in the sciences and volunteered at a free clinic, which drew him to patient care and pursuing medicine as a career. After he earned his master’s degree he worked as a research study assistant at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, prior to going to medical school. “I was always drawn to the resiliency of children and completed my residency in General Pediatrics, but during rotations I became interested in Allergy/Immunology, so I decided to combine the two disciplines,” states Dr. Devlin.

Dr. Devlin enjoys seeing all types of patients – infants to adults – with a focus on educating patients and their parents so they can achieve a good understanding of their disease and take an active role in their treatment. “Fortunately, in most cases we see a quick result or resolution of an allergy,” states Dr. Devlin, “This happens because the patient (or parents) understand what needs to be done in their environment to prevent or resolve the disease.”
