PATIENT INFORMATION

Patients should be advised that life-threatening anaphylactic reactions have occurred in some patients during and up to 24 hours after ELAPRASE therapy. Patients who have experienced anaphylactic reactions may require prolonged observation. Patients with compromised respiratory function or acute respiratory disease may be at risk of serious acute exacerbation of their respiratory compromise due to hypersensitivity reactions.

A Hunter Outcome Survey has been established in order to understand better the variability and progression of Hunter syndrome (MPS II) in the population as a whole, and to monitor and evaluate long-term treatment effects of ELAPRASE. Patients and their physicians are encouraged to participate in this program. For more information, call Shire Human Genetic Therapies, Inc. at 1-866-888-0660.
