A new integrated analysis of Phase III data for FASENRA® (benralizumab) shows that patients with severe eosinophilic asthma who were continuously treated with the medicine for up to two years reduced their use of oral corticosteroids (OCS) and experienced a sustained improvement in exacerbation rates, lung function, asthma control and health-related quality of life. The analysis, presented today at the American Thoracic Society (ATS) 2019 International Conference, provides long-term efficacy and safety data for FASENRA from the one-year Phase III SIROCCO and CALIMA exacerbation trials, the one-year Phase III BORA extension trial and the 28-week Phase III ZONDA OCS-sparing trial.
Data focused on breaking treatment boundaries, treating patients earlier in their disease, and raising the bar for better outcomes
AstraZeneca is teaming up with PGA golf champion Jason Day to encourage newly diagnosed Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer patients to ask their doctor about biomarker testing (sometimes referred to as molecular testing or mutation testing), which can help patients and their physician find the treatment options that are right for them. AstraZeneca is partnering with the world-renowned golf pro to launch the Test It Back campaign, focused on ensuring complete biomarker testing becomes standard of care at every late-stage lung cancer diagnosis. The Test It Back site includes a series of inspiring videos featuring Day and his mother, Dening, whose decision to get mutation testing of her Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer last year informed her treatment decisions.
