The CHMP opinion is based on review of a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) containing efficacy and safety data from Teva’s global development program in asthma. The clinical trial program consisted of five placebo-controlled studies which demonstrated the efficacy and/or safety profile in a population of 1,028 adult and adolescent asthma patients treated with reslizumab 3 mg/kg that were inadequately controlled with inhaled corticosteroid (ICS)-based therapies. Three of these studies constituted the Phase III program in patients with asthma and elevated blood eosinophils greater than 400 cells/mcL, where reslizumab was administered for up to 52 weeks. They demonstrated that treatment with reslizumab reduced the annual rate of asthma exacerbations in the two 52-week trials by 50 and 59 percent, respectively. In addition, reslizumab was associated with significant improvement in lung function, patient-reported asthma control and asthma-related quality of life measures. The most commonly reported adverse reaction during treatment was increased blood creatinine phosphokinase, which occurred in approximately two percent of patients. These were mostly mild, transient, asymptomatic and did not lead to treatment discontinuation. Adverse reactions of myalgia and anaphylactic reaction were uncommon and occurred in less than one percent of patients.
