“Before CUVITRU, I was on a weekly treatment that took me 2.5 hours to infuse.”

“Because I’m on 3 dance teams and really active, I felt like the treatments were really slowing me down.”

“After my mom talked to the doctor, I was switched to CUVITRU. I don't feel sick as much as I did before I was diagnosed. Now that I'm infusing every 2 weeks, I have more time for dance practice!”

Julie

“CUVITRU has been very life-friendly, including the set-up frequency. After my infusion, I don’t have to think about it again for 2 more weeks.”

“After I was diagnosed with PI, I began an IVIg treatment. While the treatments seemed to keep my infections under control, I’d experience 1 week of debilitating fatigue and malaise following each infusion.”

“Then, it started to become difficult to access my veins. This, coupled with the side effects that kept affecting me, got me to talk with my doctor about other options.”

“Now that I’m on CUVITRU, I don’t experience the same type of side effects I did with my IV infusions. Plus, the fact that my CUVITRU infusions only take about 35 minutes makes me optimistic for the future.”

Walter

“Now I’m back to living my life. My CUVITRU administration schedule helped give me that freedom.”

 PI Patient, 59 years oldActual patient with PI

“Before my PI was diagnosed, I experienced a dramatic decline in my health. With recurrent pneumonia and recurrent sinusitis, I sometimes felt like infections were in control of my life.”

“Getting diagnosed was a huge relief, but my previous subQ treatment required 4 needlesticks, which felt like a burden. When I brought up my concerns to my doctor, she told me about CUVITRU.”

“My experience with CUVITRU is just what I expected. My infections have been kept under control, my infusions require just 1 needlestick, and I’ve even been able to reduce my infusion time, which is a huge plus.”
