This trial will study a drug called benralizumab. The researchers want to know if benralizumab is useful in treating severe asthma. To see if benralizumab has an impact in treating severe asthma, this study will compare it with placebo. The placebo will be like benralizumab but will not contain any active medication.

Benralizumab is an approved treatment for asthma in Canada, US, Europe, and other countries under the trade name Fasenra.
