Uncontrolled Asthma is defined as one of the following:
1. Poor symptom control ACQ >1.5, ACT <20
2. Frequent sever exacerbations: 2 or more burst of prednisone in last 12 months.

  2. Diagnosis of asthma at least 1 year prior to visit 1
  3. Using one of the following:
    • Medium-to-high-ICS
    • Medium-to-high-ICS with addition of LRTRA, LAMA or theophylline
    • Low-to-high-dose ICS in combination with LABA
  4.  Had at least one asthma exacerbation within the last 12 months that required use of oral steroids for at least 3 consecutive days.
