Important safety information
Warnings and precautions:
- Injection site bleeding in patients with thrombocytopenia: Increased risk of local bleeding in patients with thrombocytopenia; should not be used if thrombocytopenia is severe.
- Delay in improvement of immune function: Protect immune deficient patients from infections until improvement in immune function.
The most commonly reported adverse reactions were cough and vomiting.
In addition, the following post-marketing reports for the same class of enzyme replacement therapy used in the treatment of ADA-SCID, may also be seen with Revcovi treatment:
- Hematologic events: hemolytic anemia, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, thrombocythemia, thrombocytopenia and autoimmune thrombocytopenia
- Dermatological events: injection site erythema, urticaria
Important monitoring information:
Treatment with Revcovi should be monitored by measuring trough plasma ADA activity and trough dAXP levels for maintenance of therapeutic targets. If a persistent decline in plasma ADA activity occurs, immune function and clinical status should be monitored closely, and precautions should be taken to minimize the risk of infection.
