Fasenra Injection Therapy

What is Fasenra?

Fasenra (benralizumab) is a biologic drug therapy that is an add-on maintenance treatment for patients 12 years and older with ‚Äčsevere eosinophilic asthma (EA)

How does Fasenra work?

Eosinophils are normal white blood cells. People with eosinophilic asthma have increased levels of eosinophils, which worsens inflammation in their lungs and can cause severe asthma attacks. Fasenra has been proven to reduce eosinophil levels in the blood, which helps prevent asthma attacks, improves breathing and lung function, and better controls asthma symptoms. Taking Fasenra may reduce or completely eliminate a patient’s need to take oral steroids daily. 

How is Fasenra administered?

Fasenra is administered via injection. The first 3 doses are administered once every 4 weeks, and then once every 8 weeks thereafter.
