NAGLAZYME® (galsulfase) Indication and Important Safety Information

VIMIZIM® (elosulfase alfa) Indication and Important Safety Information
WARNING: RISK OF ANAPHYLAXIS

INDICATION

NAGLAZYME® (galsulfase) is indicated for patients with Mucopolysaccharidosis VI (MPS VI; Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome). NAGLAZYME has been shown to improve walking and stair-climbing capacity.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Severe and life-threatening allergic reactions can occur during NAGLAZYME infusions and up to 24 hours after infusion. Typical signs of an allergic reaction include shock, difficulty breathing, wheezing, swelling of the throat, and low blood pressure. If a severe allergic reaction occurs during infusion, the infusion should be stopped immediately, and you should receive medical attention. Contact your doctor or get medical help right away if you develop any severe symptoms after infusion.

In clinical trials, most patients developed antibodies to NAGLAZYME treatment. There was no clear relationship between antibody formation and the safety or effectiveness of NAGLAZYME.

Serious and severe infusion reactions are associated with NAGLAZYME, including hives, chest pain, rash, abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, swelling, fever, and eye irritation. You should receive medication such as antihistamines before NAGLAZYME infusions to reduce the risk of infusion reactions. If an infusion reaction occurs, the infusion should be slowed or stopped, and you may be given additional medication.

The most common side effects of NAGLAZYME seen in clinical trials were rash, pain, hives, fever, itching, chills, headache, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and difficulty breathing. The most common side effects requiring medical attention are infusion-related effects.

These are not all of the possible side effects with NAGLAZYME. Talk to your doctor if you have any symptoms that bother you or that do not go away.

NAGLAZYME is a prescription medicine. Before treatment with NAGLAZYME, it is important to discuss your medical history with your doctor. Tell your doctor if you are taking any medication and if you are allergic to any medicines. Your doctor will decide if NAGLAZYME is right for you. If you have questions or would like more information about NAGLAZYME, contact your doctor.

Spinal cord damage may occur due to the natural MPS VI disease process. Signs of spinal cord injury include back pain, loss of bladder and bowel control, numbness, and paralysis. Contact your doctor immediately if you develop any of these symptoms.

INDICATION

VIMIZIM® (elosulfase alfa) is indicated for patients with mucopolysaccharidosis type IVA (MPS IVA; Morquio A syndrome).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Life-threatening allergic reactions, known as anaphylaxis, can occur during VIMIZIM infusions. Typical signs of anaphylaxis include cough, rash, throat tightness, hives, flushing, changes in skin color, low blood pressure, shortness of breath, chest pain, and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, abdominal pain, retching, and vomiting. Contact your doctor or get medical help right away if these symptoms occur during or after VIMIZIM infusions. If you have a respiratory illness, you may be at risk for a sudden worsening of your condition, and you may require additional monitoring.

VIMIZIM is a prescription medicine. Before treatment with VIMIZIM, it is important to discuss your medical history with your doctor. Tell your doctor if you are sick or taking any medication and if you are allergic to any medicines. Also tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are a nursing mother. Your doctor will decide if VIMIZIM is right for you. If you have questions or would like more information about VIMIZIM, contact your doctor.

Anaphylaxis can occur during any VIMIZIM infusion, as early as 30 minutes from the start and up to 3 hours after infusion, and as late into treatment as the 47th infusion. Hypersensitivity reactions have been observed as early as 30 minutes from the start of infusion but as late as 6 days after infusion.

Serious and severe reactions can happen with VIMIZIM treatment, including life-threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), hives, swelling, cough, shortness of breath, and flushing. You should receive medication such as antihistamines before VIMIZIM infusions to reduce the risk of reactions. If a reaction occurs, the infusion should be slowed or stopped and you may be given additional medication. If a severe reaction occurs, the infusion should be stopped immediately and you will receive appropriate medical treatment.

If you have acute febrile or respiratory illness at the time of VIMIZIM infusion, you may be at higher risk of life-threatening complications from hypersensitivity reactions. If you use supplemental oxygen or continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), you should have it available during your infusion in the event of a sudden reaction, or extreme drowsiness/sleep from antihistamines.

Spinal cord damage may occur due to the natural MPS IVA disease process. Signs of spinal cord injury include back pain, numbness and paralysis, and loss of bladder and bowel control. Contact your doctor immediately if you develop any of these symptoms.

The most common side effects reported during VIMIZIM infusions included fever, vomiting, headache, nausea, abdominal pain, chills, and fatigue. These are not all the possible side effects with VIMIZIM. Talk to your doctor if you have any symptoms that bother you or that do not go away.
