Nucala is indicated as an add-on treatment for severe refractory eosinophilic asthma in adults, adolescents and children aged 6 years and older. Only Nucala 100mg SC is licenced for use.¹

Nucala is generally well tolerated. In clinical trials, Nucala had a similar incidence of adverse events vs. placebo with the exception of injection site reactions (8% vs. 3%), which occurred mainly within the first 3 injections¹

The recommended dose of Nucala is 100mg SC once every 4 weeks in adults and adolescents 12 years and older, available in a pre-filled pen, pre-filled syringe or lyophilised powder. The licensed dose of Nucala in children aged 6-11 years is 40mg SC regardless of weight and available in lyophilised powder.¹
