What is ELAPRASE® (idursulfase)?

ELAPRASE is a prescription medicine for patients with Hunter syndrome.

ELAPRASE has been shown to improve walking ability in patients 5 yrs and older.

In patients 16 months to 5 yrs old, ELAPRASE did not show improvement in disease-related symptoms or long term clinical result; however, treatment with ELAPRASE has reduced spleen size similarly to patients 5 yrs and older.

It is not known if ELAPRASE is safe and effective in children under 16 months old.

ELAPRASE IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Risk of serious allergic reactions:

Some patients have experienced serious allergic reactions (including life-threatening anaphylactic reactions) during and up to 24 hours after treatment, regardless of how long they were taking ELAPRASE. Anaphylactic reactions are immediate and include breathing problems, low oxygen levels, low blood pressure, hives and/or swelling of the throat or tongue.

If a patient (you or your child) has experienced an anaphylactic reaction, the patient may require an extended period of observation by the patient’s healthcare team.

If you or your child has breathing problems, a fever, or a respiratory illness, you or your child may be at risk of life-threatening worsening of those conditions due to allergic reactions from ELAPRASE. Your healthcare team should be advised of those conditions before treatment with ELAPRASE because the information may affect the timing of ELAPRASE treatment.

You or your child should be closely watched during and after ELAPRASE treatment and you should confirm with your healthcare team in advance of treatment that it is prepared to manage serious allergic reactions, including anaphylactic reactions. Tell your healthcare team immediately if any signs of an allergic reaction happen. Those signs may include breathing problems, low blood pressure, rash, hives, itching, flushing, fever and/or headache.

When serious allergic reactions happened during clinical trials, later ELAPRASE treatments were managed with allergy-controlling drugs before or during treatment, a slower rate of ELAPRASE treatment, and/or early discontinuation of treatment.

Children with serious genetic mutations may be at risk for allergic reactions, serious side effects and antibody development. In a clinical study of children 7 years and younger, patients with certain types of genetic mutations experienced a higher number of allergic reactions, serious side effects, and development of an immune response to treatment. This immune response may interfere with the effectiveness of ELAPRASE. Talk to your healthcare team about whether you or your child may be at risk.

If you or your child has breathing problems, other respiratory illness, heart problems, or susceptibility to fluid overload, you or your child may be at higher risk of fluid overload during ELAPRASE treatment. Your healthcare team should be advised of those problems before treatment and you should confirm with your healthcare team in advance of treatment that it is appropriately trained to watch for signs of fluid overload and provide the necessary medical support. Patients at risk for fluid overload may require longer observation time.

What are possible side effects of ELAPRASE?

The most common side effects of ELAPRASE include:

  • In patients aged 5 and older:
    • Headache
    • Itching
    • Muscle and bone pain
    • Hives
    • Diarrhea
    • Cough
  • In patients aged 7 and older:
    • Fever
    • Rash
    • Vomiting
    • Hives

The most common side effects needing medical attention were allergic reactions, and included rash, hives, itching, flushing, fever, and headache. Tell your healthcare team immediately if any signs of an allergic reaction happen. These are not all the possible side effects of ELAPRASE.

For additional safety information, please click here for Full Prescribing Information, including Boxed Warning for Risk of Anaphylaxis, and discuss with your doctor.

  • Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction to KALBITOR can be similar to the symptoms of HAE, the condition that you are being treated for. Your doctor or nurse should watch you for any signs of a serious allergic reaction after treatment with KALBITOR.
  • Tell your doctor or nurse right away if you have any of these symptoms of a serious allergic reaction during or after treatment with KALBITOR:
    • wheezing, shortness of breath, cough, chest tightness, or trouble breathing
    • dizziness, fainting, fast or weak heartbeat, or feeling nervous
    • reddening of the face, itching, hives, or feeling warm
    • swelling of the throat or tongue, throat tightness, hoarse voice, or trouble swallowing
    • runny nose, nasal congestion, or sneezing

VPRIV INDICATION

VPRIV® (velaglucerase alfa) for injection is a prescription medication indicated for long-term enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) for patients with type 1 Gaucher disease.

VPRIV IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Hypersensitivity reactions, including serious allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) have occurred. VPRIV should be administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional. VPRIV is given every other week by intravenous infusion that typically takes up to 60 minutes. Appropriate medical support should be available when VPRIV is administered. The most serious side effects in patients treated with VPRIV were hypersensitivity reactions.

Hypersensitivity reactions were the most commonly observed side effects in patients treated with VPRIV in clinical studies. The most commonly observed symptoms of hypersensitivity reactions were: headache, dizziness, low blood pressure, high blood pressure, nausea, tiredness/weakness, and fever. Hypersensitivity reactions in the clinical trials include any event considered related to and occurring within up to 24 hours of VPRIV infusion, including one case of anaphylaxis. Generally the reactions were mild and, in patients not previously treated, occurred mostly during the first 6 months of treatment and tended to occur less frequently with time. After the drug was approved, additional hypersensitivity reactions of chest discomfort, difficulty breathing, itching and vomiting have been reported. In some cases, vomiting can be serious and require hospitalization and/or stopping the medication.

If anaphylactic or other acute reactions occur, your healthcare provider will immediately discontinue the infusion of VPRIV and initiate the appropriate medical treatment. A hypersensitivity reaction should be treated based on the severity of the reaction. Your healthcare provider may manage a reaction by slowing the infusion rate or treating with medicine such as antihistamines, fever-reducing agents and/or corticosteroids or possibly stopping the medication and then restarting with a longer infusion time. For patients who have had symptoms of hypersensitivity reaction to enzyme replacement therapy, the doctor may consider treating the patient with antihistamines and/or corticosteroids before an infusion to help prevent such a reaction from happening.

The most commonly reported side effects during clinical studies (in ≥10% of patients) were hypersensitivity reactions, headache, dizziness, abdominal pain, nausea, back pain, joint pain, increased time it takes for blood to clot, tiredness/weakness, and fever. In clinical studies, the overall frequency of side effects was generally higher in the patients not previously treated with ERT than in the patients who switched from imiglucerase to VPRIV.

Talk to your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to be pregnant, are breastfeeding, or plan to breastfeed.

The safety and efficacy profiles were similar in pediatric (ages 4 to 17) and adult patients. The safety of VPRIV has not been established in patients under 4 years of age. Side effects more commonly seen in pediatric patients compared to adult patients include (>10% difference): rash, increased time it takes for blood to clot, and fever.

The side effect profile in elderly patients was generally similar to that seen in pediatric and other adult patients. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be approached cautiously, considering other existing medical conditions.

As with all therapeutic proteins, there is a potential for developing antibodies to VPRIV. In clinical studies, 1 of 54 (2%) patients who had not previously been treated with ERT, who were then treated with VPRIV, developed antibodies. One additional patient developed antibodies to VPRIV during an extension study. It is unknown if having antibodies to VPRIV is associated with a higher risk of infusion reactions. Patients with an immune response to other enzyme replacement therapies who are switching to VPRIV should continue to be monitored for antibodies to VPRIV.
