INDICATION

SYNAGIS, 50 mg and 100 mg for injection, is indicated for the prevention of serious lower respiratory tract disease caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) in pediatric patients:

  • with a history of premature birth (≤35 weeks gestational age) and who are 6 months of age or younger at the beginning of RSV season
  • with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) that required medical treatment within the previous 6 months and who are 24 months of age or younger at the beginning of RSV season
  • with hemodynamically significant congenital heart disease (CHD) and who are 24 months of age or younger at the beginning of RSV season

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Hypersensitivity Reactions: Anaphylaxis and anaphylactic shock (including fatal cases) and other severe acute hypersensitivity reactions have been reported. Permanently discontinue SYNAGIS and administer appropriate medication if such reactions occur.

Coagulation Disorders: SYNAGIS should be given with caution to children with thrombocytopenia or any coagulation disorder.

RSV Diagnostic Test Interference: Palivizumab may interfere with immunological-based RSV diagnostic tests, such as some antigen detection-based assays.

Serious Adverse Reactions: The most common serious adverse reactions occurring with SYNAGIS are anaphylaxis and other acute hypersensitivity reactions.

Most Common Adverse Reactions: The most common adverse reactions are fever and rash.

Postmarketing Experience: Severe thrombocytopenia and injection site reactions have been identified during post approval use of SYNAGIS. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.

LIMITATIONS OF USE

The safety and efficacy of SYNAGIS have not been established for treatment of RSV disease.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Previous significant hypersensitivity reaction to SYNAGIS.
