MBP 18.0 Fabrazyme (agalsidase beta)
Fabrazyme (agalsidase beta) is approved by the FDA for use in members with Fabry disease. Fabry disease is a progressive X-linked genetic disorder which causes a deficiency in the enzyme alpha-galactosidase A. This deficiency allows glycosphingolipids to accumulate in the vascular endothelium and visceral tissues throughout the body.

MBP 173.0 Fasenra (benralizumab)
Fasenra (benralizumab), a humanized monoclonal antibody (IgG1, kappa), is an interleukin-5 antagonist. IL-5 is the major cytokine responsible for the growth and differentiation, recruitment, activation, and survival of eosinophils (a cell type associated with inflammation and an important component in the pathogenesis of asthma). Benralizumab, by inhibiting IL-5 signaling, reduces the production and survival of eosinophils.
