NUCALA is a different kind of treatment for your severe asthma. It’s an injection you get every 4 weeks in addition to your current asthma medicines. You can get your NUCALA injection in your doctor’s office or take it at home.

How can NUCALA help severe asthma?

NUCALA may decrease airway inflammation that can cause severe asthma attacks. It works by targeting eosinophils, one source of inflammation, so it treats more than just your symptoms of severe asthma. Find out more about how NUCALA works.

The mechanism of action of NUCALA is not fully understood.

How do I know if NUCALA is an option for me?

Your doctor can give you a blood test that measures your eosinophil count. In clinical studies, the eosinophil blood test helped identify patients whose asthma was more likely to respond to treatment with NUCALA.

Based on your blood test results, your doctor may diagnose you with severe eosinophilic asthma and recommend adding NUCALA to your asthma treatment plan.
