Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 23 Jan 2018

In November 2017 the FDA approved AstraZeneca’s Fasenra, an interleukin-5 receptor monoclonal antibody used as an add-on maintenance treatment for severe eosinophilic asthma. Eosinophilic asthma patients have limited treatment options and often rely on oral steroids to manage their symptoms, which can lead to serious side effects.

How is Fasenra given?

Fasenra (benralizumab) is given as a 30 mg subcutaneous injection once every 4 weeks for the first three doses, and then once every 8 weeks thereafter. Fasenra should be administered by a health care professional.
