CUVITRU INFUSION: STEP BY STEP

You’ve got supplies. Now let’s figure them out.

How is CUVITRU administered?

To administer your CUVITRU [Immune Globulin Subcutaneous (Human)] 20% treatment, you'll need vial(s) of CUVITRU and the following infusion supplies:

  • Subcutaneous needle set
  • Transfer device(s)
  • Syringe(s)
  • Sterile tip caps
  • Sterile clear bandage
  • Tape
  • Gauze
  • Sharps container
  • Infusion pump
  • Infusion log

This isn't a complete list of all of the supplies you may need, but it is all of the basics. When infusing, remember to refer to your Detailed Instructions for Administration for Patients or consult your healthcare provider. Takeda doesn't prefer, recommend or attest to using any specific infusion pump or other ancillary device.

Below is an example of what you can expect from your specialty pharmacy, but you should talk to your doctor or specialty pharmacist to make sure you receive the necessary supplies for your intended infusion rate.
