How can NUCALA help severe asthma?

NUCALA may decrease airway inflammation that can cause severe asthma attacks. It works by targeting eosinophils, a key source of asthma 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 blood testing 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.

Your blood test results may help your doctor diagnose you with severe eosinophilic asthma. They may recommend adding NUCALA to your asthma treatment plan.
