CONTRAINDICATIONS

VITRASE (hyaluronidase injection) is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to hyaluronidase or any other ingredient in the formulation. A preliminary skin test for hypersensitivity to VITRASE can be performed. The skin test is made by intradermal injection of approximately 0.02 mL (4 Units) of a 200 Units/mL solution [see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION]. A positive reaction consists of a wheal with pseudopods appearing within 5 minutes and persisting for 20 to 30 minutes and accompanied by localized itching. Transient vasodilation at the site of the test, i.e., erythema, is not a positive reaction.

Discontinue VITRASE if sensitization occurs.

This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
