Cinqair FDA Approval History
Cinqair (reslizumab) is an interleukin 5 antagonist monoclonal antibody (IgG4 kappa) indicated for add-on maintenance treatment of patients with eosinophilic asthma.
The FDA approval of Cinqair was based on efficacy and safety data from five placebo-controlled studies that included 1,028 asthma patients. In the three Phase III studies, Cinqair was associated with reduction in asthma attacks of up to 59% as well as a significant improvement in lung function, symptoms, and asthma-related quality of life.
Cinqair is administered via intravenous infusion every four weeks in a clinical setting prepared to manage anaphylaxic reactions. The most common side effect reported during clinical trials was oropharyngeal pain.
