CUSTOMIZED ADMINISTRATION

CUVITRU can offer your patients an optimized treatment experience1

Whether your patients prefer infusions that take less than an hour or fewer needlesticks, CUVITRU [Immune Globulin Subcutaneous (Human)] 20% Solution is the SCIG of choice with administration that can be customized to meet their individual needs.1,2

Fastest SCIG infusion rates1

The median duration of once-weekly infusions was <1 hour (0.95 hours; range: 0.2-6.4 hours) in the North American clinical study.

  • Approximately 94% of infusions were completed within 2 hours3
  • Infuse at rates up to 60 mL/h/site in up to 4 sites simultaneously for a maximum total of 240 mL/h
  • For patients looking to minimize infusion time, CUVITRU may allow delivery of a full week’s dose in <15 min—with even shorter durations possible with more frequent dosing*
Fewest needlesticks1

84.9% of infusions (N=4314) were administered using only 1 or 2 infusion sites (18.5%=1 site; 66.4%=2 sites) in the North American clinical study.

  • Infuse weekly in <1 hour in 1-2 sites
  • Patients can infuse up to 60 mL/site, and use up to 4 sites simultaneously
  • The use of more infusion sites may be beneficial for patients who want to reduce the volume administered per site or overall infusion duration
Infuse from daily to every 2 weeks1,2

Patients who had received IVIG previously reported that CUVITRU fit better into their schedules and was more convenient than IVIG infusion.

  • With the highest infusion volume (60 mL/h/site, as tolerated) compared with any other conventional SCIG option, a weekly or biweekly infusion schedule is possible for your patients.

*If a patient is 75 kg (165 lbs) and was prescribed 36 g of IVIG per month, you could switch your patient to 12 g of CUVITRU weekly. After the first 2 infusions, subsequent infusions of CUVITRU could be completed in 15 mins at a rate of 60 mL/h/site using 4 sites simultaneously.

CUVITRU was shown to significantly improve patient quality of life in terms of Convenience (TSQM-9 difference 11.11; P<0.001) and Treatment Interference (LQI difference 1.50; P=0.008) when compared to IVIG treatment.
