At-home convenience

  • Study Description

    12-week, open-label study assessed the correct use of the NUCALA Autoinjector in patients aged ≥12 years with severe eosinophilic asthma (n=104). NUCALA was administered as one 100-mg subcutaneous injection every 4 weeks by the patient or caregiver after being trained on proper technique with the Autoinjector at baseline. Successful use was determined by investigator observation using a checklist of steps based on Instructions for Use and visually inspecting the Autoinjector following the third dose. Ease of use and convenience of use at home were measured at study end on a 5-point scale (not at all, a little, moderately, very, and extremely) in the 102 patients with successful use.1,2

The only asthma biologic to offer:

  • Once-monthly dosing (every 4 weeks)
  • No loading dose
  • Fixed-dose (independent of weight)

At-home dosing and administration with the NUCALA Autoinjector:

  • Fixed 100-mg dose independent of weight
  • NUCALA may be administered by the patient or a caregiver
  • Subcutaneous injection every 4 weeks into the thigh or abdomen (or upper arm by caregiver)
