What is Involved?
If you choose to join this study, you will:
- Get a random assignment (like a coin flip) to 1 of 2 groups
-- One group will take benralizumab
-- The other group will take a placebo (inactive substance that has no drug in it)
This "blinded" portion of the study will last 24 weeks. After the 24 weeks are done, you will have the option to continue in the study. Everyone who chooses to continue in the study will then get benralizumab no matter which group they were in previously. This extension portion of the study will last one year.
Throughout the study, you will also:
- Have blood draws
- Give urine samples
- Have heart scans (ECG)
- Have breathing tests
- Have physical exams
