What is Fasenra Pen?

Fasenra Pen is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by AstraZeneca. It is an interleukin-5 receptor alpha-directed cytolytic monoclonal antibody (IgG1, kappa) indicated for the add-on maintenance treatment of patients with severe asthma aged 12 years and older, and with an eosinophilic phenotype. Fasenra reduces blood eosinophils. Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell that may contribute to your asthma.

Fasenra is not for the treatment of other eosinophilic conditions or for the relief of acute bronchospasm or status asthmaticus.

What doses of Fasenra Pen are available?

Fasenra is available in injection form, in the following doses: 30 mg/mL solution in a single-dose prefilled syringe, 30 mg/mL solution in a single-dose autoinjector Fasenra Pen.

Fasenra is the only respiratory biologic that offers the choice of self-administration at home or in a doctor’s office with eight-week maintenance dosing. Administer Fasenra by subcutaneous injection. The recommended dose is 30 mg every 4 weeks for the first 3 doses, followed by once every 8 weeks thereafter.

You must not stop taking or reducing the dose of your other asthma medicines unless your doctor advises you to. Fasenra does not treat acute asthma symptoms such as a sudden asthma attack. You will still need your reliever inhaler.

Please see the accompanying full prescribing information including the patient information and instructions for use and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
