What are the benefits of NUCALA?

Adding injections of NUCALA once every four weeks to current asthma medications can:

Prevent severe asthma attacks.
Studies have proven that NUCALA significantly reduced the occurrence of severe asthma attacks by more than half, even those that led to ER visits or hospitalizations. Your results may vary.
Reduce the use of oral steroids.
NUCALA is NOT a steroid, and when added to your asthma medication, it helps to reduce your use of steroids like prednisone, while maintaining asthma control. Your results may vary.
