Datapoint: FDA Rejects Fasenra for Nasal Polyps
The FDA last week rejected AstraZeneca’s application to expand its IL-5 inhibitor Fasenra into chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps. The injectable is currently approved to treat asthma, where it holds covered or better status for 78% of all insured lives under the pharmacy benefit. 32.9% of covered lives have preferred access to Fasenra, largely with utilization management restrictions.
