What Is Cuvitru?

Cuvitru (generic name: immune globulin) is derived from human plasma, and it is given to patients with antibody deficiencies to protect against infections.

This medicine belongs to the immune globulins drug class. Cuvitru is FDA approved to be used as a monotherapy or adjunct therapy with other medications.

Cuvitru Treatment/Therapy

Cuvitru is an immunoglobulin solution that is administered via subcutaneous infusion only.  It works by replacing antibodies that are not functioning properly or not present in the human body to help fight off infections. FDA-approved doses are given to increase extremely low blood immunoglobulin levels to required levels.

What Is Cuvitru Used To Treat?

Cuvitru is Indicated for:

  • Primary Humoral Immunodeficiency (PI) in adults and pediatric patients 2 years and older (people with inborn lack of antibody generation).
  • Blood cancer patients with little antibody production and recurring infections when preventative antibiotics can not be used.
  • Bone marrow cancer patients and those who lack antibody production with repeated infections.
  • Decreased levels of antibodies following transplantation of bone marrow cells from another patient.

Blood Clot Risk Factors

Cuvitru has a Black Box Warning due to the possibility of causing blood clots.

Patients are at increased risk of having blood clots if they have one or more of the following risk factors:

  • Advanced age
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Hypercoagulable conditions
  • History of previous blood clots
  • Estrogen use

There may be other factors, and patients are encouraged to discuss them with their doctor.

To help prevent or reduce the risk of blood clots, the manufacturer recommends infusing at the minimum dose and lowest infusion rate possible. Monitor signs and symptoms during and after the treatment.

Cuvitru Dosing

Cuvitru is administered under the skin (subcutaneously), typically by a trained healthcare professional.

Dosing varies from patient to patient.

Factors That Influence Dosing Calculations:

  • Body weight
  • Blood IgG levels
  • Medical history
  • Current conditions
  • Clinical response to the treatment

Based on these factors, the patient (a child or adult) may be prescribed a loading dose of at least 1.0-2.5 ml/kg of body weight divided over a few consecutive days.

Following this loading dose, patients will start to receive Cuvitru at regular intervals from daily to once every two weeks.

The total monthly dose will be between 1.5-5.0 ml/kg of body weight after the loading dose. 

The doctor may adjust the dose over time to achieve the desired clinical response and serum IgG levels.

For patients who are switching from another IVIG brand, the Cuvitru dose will be based on the previous IVIG dose and will be adjusted according to the number and frequency of infusion.

It is not recommended to make changes to the dose or dosing interval without talking to the doctor.

If you miss a dose, it is important to speak to the doctor as early as possible and get a new dosing schedule. Avoid doubling the dose to catch up.
