Common questions about NUCALA

  • What is NUCALA?

    NUCALA is a biologic; it’s not a steroid. It’s an injection you get every 4 weeks. When NUCALA is added to your current treatment plan, it can help reduce your symptoms of CRSwNP (like nasal congestion, nasal discharge, mucus in the throat, and loss of smell) and helped prevent the need for surgery. NUCALA helps reduce the size of your nasal polyps and the use of steroids.*

    *Oral or injectable steroids.

  • What else should you know about NUCALA?

    Eosinophils are a normal part of your immune system, but in higher numbers, they can cause inflammation. NUCALA helps reduce eosinophils in the blood, so it treats a source of inflammation. Inflammation can play a role in CRSwNP.


    It is not fully understood how NUCALA works. 

    Do not use NUCALA if you are allergic to mepolizumab or any of the ingredients in NUCALA.

  • Why would your doctor recommend NUCALA?

    Your current treatment may not be controlling your symptoms and not addressing an underlying cause of your nasal polyps: eosinophils. NUCALA specifically targets eosinophils, a driver of inflammation in nasal polyps.
