Experimental: Subjects from clinical study MEA115921
Subjects who participated in clinical study MEA115921 and who require a dose of prednisolone (or equivalent) of 5 mg/day for adequate control of their EGPA will be included. Eligible subjects will receive subcutaneously administered mepolizumab at a dose of 300 mg SC every 4 weeks.
Mepolizumab will be available as lyophilized powder for injection to be reconstituted with sterile water for injection, prior to use. Subjects will be dosed with mepolizumab at a dose of 300 mg which will be administered as three separate 100 mg SC injections every 4 weeks. The injections will be administered into any of the upper arm, thigh or anterior abdominal wall.
Subjects who require a dose of prednisolone (or equivalent) of 5 mg/day for adequate control of their EGPA will be included.
- Number of subjects with corticosteroid use [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years approximately ]The use of corticosteroids excluding inhaled and topical steroids will be summarized.
- Number of subjects with adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years approximately ]An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a subject, temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product. SAE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence that, at any dose: results in death; is life-threatening; requires hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization; results in disability/incapacity; is a congenital anomaly/birth defect; other important medical events based on medical or scientific judgment; and is associated with liver injury and impaired liver function.
