AstraZeneca-Amgen Drug For Severe Asthma Gains U.S. FDA Approval

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

As per reports, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved AstraZeneca (AZN) and Amgen’s (AMGN) asthma drug, Tezspire, to treat severe asthma for those aged 12 years and above. The approval comes based on late-stage trial data that shows the drug cut the rate of asthma attacks by 56% among patients when compared with placebo. Amgen informed that it was working to make Tezspire available to patients in January. Tezspire works by blocking a type of immune protein called TSLP, found in the linings of the lungs.

AstraZeneca will record sales outside U.S and Amgen will record sales in the United States. Both will also draw collaboration revenue from the profits.
