GlaxoSmithKline plc GSK announced that the FDA has approved the label expansion of eosinophilic asthma drug, Nucala, to include treatment of eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis ("EGPA"). With this approval, Nucala becomes the first targeted treatment for EGPA, which was previously known as Churg-Strauss syndrome.

Nucala is presently approved for treating severe eosinophilic asthma.
