Hypersensitivity Reactions Including Anaphylaxis
Advise patients and caregivers that reactions related to administration and infusion may occur during and after ELELYSO treatment, including life-threatening anaphylaxis and severe hypersensitivity reactions. Inform patients of the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis and hypersensitivity reactions, and have them seek medical care should signs and symptoms occur. Inform patients that they should be carefully re-evaluated for treatment with ELELYSO if serious hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, occur. Reduction of the infusion rate and/or pre-treatment with antihistamines, antipyretics and/or corticosteroids may prevent subsequent reactions [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
