What Is Fasenra?

Fasenra is an injectable prescription drug with the active substance, benralizumab. It is approved for treating eosinophilic asthma in adolescents (children aged 12 years or over) and adults. In people whose asthma is not controlled by their existing asthma drugs, Fasenra is used as an add-on therapy.

It is frequently used with other asthma medications (inhaled corticosteroids) to treat asthma symptoms, including wheezing and shortness of breath, and to avoid asthma episodes (flare-ups).

Fasenra can only be obtained via doctor’s prescription and is available in solution form for injection purposes. 

Is There a Generic for Fasenra?

There is no biosimilar (generic) of Fasenra. It is only available in brand form, making the medication expensive, even with insurance.

What Is Fasenra Used To Treat?

Fasenra has only been approved to treat eosinophilic asthma; it has not been approved to treat other eosinophil-related illnesses or severe acute asthma, such as acute bronchospasm or status asthmaticus.

Patients with eosinophilic asthma (EA), an uncommon but severe form of asthma, frequently have a disproportionately high quantity of eosinophils in their blood and phlegm (thick mucus) in their lungs. Eosinophils are the kind of white blood cell that ordinarily fights off infection-causing germs.

In the case of eosinophilic asthma (EA), however, the activation of too many eosinophils by typical asthma triggers produces inflammation and swelling in the respiratory tract, resulting in difficulty breathing and asthma attacks.
