AstraZeneca: FDA Approves Self-administration For Fasenra In Fasenra Pen

AstraZeneca (AZN.L,AZN) said the US FDA has approved the self-administration of Fasenra in the Fasenra Pen, a pre-filled, single-use auto-injector. The approval is based on data from the Phase III GRECO trial and the Phase I AMES trial.

The company said Fasenra is now the only respiratory biologic that offers the choice of administration at home or in a doctor's office.

Fasenra is currently approved as an add-on maintenance treatment for severe eosinophilic asthma in the US, EU, Japan and other countries.
