SPECIAL WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS2

Serious infections caused by encapsulated bacteria

The use of Aspaveli may predispose individuals to serious infections caused by encapsulated bacteria including Neisseria meningitidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Haemophilus influenzae. To reduce the risk of infection, all patients must be vaccinated against these bacteria according to applicable local guidelines at least 2 weeks prior to receiving Aspaveli, unless the risk of delaying therapy outweighs the risk of developing an infection 


CONTRAINDICATIONS2

Aspaveli must not be initiated in patients:

  • with unresolved infection caused by encapsulated bacteria including Neisseria meningitidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Haemophilus influenzae
  • who are not currently vaccinated against Neisseria meningitidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Haemophilus influenzae unless they receive prophylactic treatment with appropriate antibiotics until 2 weeks after vaccination

PNH LABORATORY MONITORING2

Patients with PNH receiving Aspaveli should be monitored regularly for signs and symptoms of haemolysis, including measuring LDH levels, and may require dose adjustment within the recommended dosing schedule

Please refer to the Aspaveli Summary of Product Characteristics for further information.
