Haematopoietic agent (Anemia, neutropenia)

FICOCYTE

DESCRIPTION

Ficocyte (filgrastim) is indicated for treatment:

- Shorten the time decreased neutrophils and reduced rates lower febrile neutropenia in patients treated with cytotoxic chemotherapy due to malignant diseases (excluding leukemia and chronic myeloid Assembly marrow dysplasia).

- Shorten the time of the neutropenia in patients treated with immunosuppressive drugs after bone marrow transplantation have an increased risk due to low neutrophil serious stretching.

For pediatric patients or adults with reduced neutropenia (congenital, cyclic, or idiopathic) with the number of absolute neutrophil count 0.5 x 109/lit, and a history of infection recurrent or severe infections, long-term use Ficocyte increase the number of neutrophils and decrease the rate of time and stages of infection.

- Ficocyte have the effect of reducing prolonged neutropenia in patients with advanced HIV infection (the number of neutrophils ≤ 1.0 x 109/lit), to reduce the risk of infection for these patients when the choice choose other treatment is not appropriate.

THERAPEUTIC INDICATIONS

 

 

 

 

- FICOCYTE is indicated for the reduction in the duration of neutropenia and the incidence of febrile neutropenia in patients treated with established cytotoxic chemotherapy for malignancy (with the exception of chronic myeloid leukaemia and myelodysplastic syndromes) and for the reduction in the duration of neutropenia in patients undergoing myeloablative therapy followed by bone marrow transplantation considered to be at increased risk of prolonged severe neutropenia.

- The safety and efficacy of FICOCYTE are similar in adults and children receiving cytotoxic chemotherapy.

- FICOCYTE is indicated for the mobilisation of peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPC).

- In patients, children or adults, with severe congenital, cyclic, or idiopathic neutropenia with an ANC of 0.5 x 109/L, and a history of severe or recurrent infections, long term administration of FICOCYTE is indicated to increase neutrophil counts and to reduce the incidence and duration of infection-related events.

FICOCYTE is indicated for the treatment of persistent neutropenia (Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) less than or equal to 1.0 x109/L) in patients with advanced HIV infection inappropriate.

Administration route: SC or IV injection

CONTRAINDICATIONS

 

 

FICOCYTE should not be administered to patients :

- Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients. FICOCYTE should not be used to increase the dose of cytotoxic chemotherapy beyond established dosage regimens.

- With severe congenital neutropenia (Kostman's syndrome) with abnormal cytogenetics.
