Nucala Injection Therapy

What is Nucala?

Nucala (mepolizumab) is a biologic drug therapy that is an add-on maintenance treatment for patients 6 years and older with ‚Äčsevere eosinophilic asthma (EA)

How does Nucala 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. Nucala injections have 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 Nucala may reduce or completely eliminate a patient’s need to take oral steroids daily. 

How is Nucala administered?

A Nucala infusion is injected subcutaneously (under the skin) once every 4 weeks.
