JERUSALEM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE:TEVA) announced today that reslizumab, an investigational anti-IL-5 monoclonal antibody, demonstrated clear levels of efficacy in achieving the primary endpoint of reduction in the frequency of clinical asthma exacerbations (CAE) compared to placebo in two pivotal Phase III studies in patients with inadequately controlled moderate to severe asthma with elevated levels of blood eosinophils.

In both trials, reslizumab treatment showed both clinically relevant and statistically significant reductions in the frequency of CAE compared to placebo (50% and 60% respectively, p <0.0001 for both). Reslizumab has also demonstrated a positive effect on lung function and asthma control in the Phase III program (data to be presented at the European Respiratory Society Congress, Sept 6-10). The combination of an effect on clinically important exacerbations and on improvements and preservation of lung function suggest that reslizumab may be a uniquely differentiated treatment for patients with moderate to severe asthma with elevated levels of blood eosinophils.
