      Trial Summary

      This clinical trial was done to study a new medicine called, MTPS9579A, for the treatment of asthma. This study investigated whether MTPS9579A was effective for controlling asthma in people who used inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) and another medicine – a second controller for the asthma. This was a Phase 2a, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study, conducted at 26 study centers in 5 countries.
