What Is Fulphila?

Pegfilgrastim, which is also known by the brand name, Neulasta, is a hematopoietic agent that is used to treat neutropenia. Neulasta was the first medication produced based on the active element pegfilgrastim. Pegfilgrastim is not a hazardous drug, nor is it a form of chemotherapy.

Based on Neulasta, several different biosimilars have been produced, one of which is called Fulphila. Fulphila is similar to Neulasta in its mechanism of action, administration route, strength, and dosage.

Mechanism of Action

Pegfilgrastim is a blood cell colony-stimulating agent (CSA) and has been used successfully by cancer patients to stimulate the growth of white blood cells, more specifically neutrophils. It does this by stimulating the production of neutrophils directly from the bone marrow.

How Is Fulphila Used?

Fulphila has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment and prevention of (febrile) neutropenia caused by chemotherapy or radiation.

Available Formulations

Fulphila is only available as a subcutaneous (under the skin) injection. The injection is available as a single-use prefilled syringe for subcutaneous injection at a dose of 6 mg/0.6 mL. 

The injection sites can include upper areas of the buttocks, front of the thighs, lower abdomen area (2 inches away from the navel), or the upper outer arms. Do not inject into areas where the skin is tender, bruised, red, scaly, or hard, and avoid areas with scars or stretch marks. After injection, do not rub the injection site. Do not handle the prefilled syringe if you are allergic to latex, and do not save unused medication in the prefilled syringe for later use. You should not attempt to give yourself a subcutaneous injection until you have received the appropriate training from your healthcare provider.

Missed Dose

If you miss a dose, contact your physician immediately to reschedule.

Precautions

Unless approved by your physician, pegfilgrastim is generally not recommended for:

  • Patients who have an allergy to human granulocyte colony-stimulating factors (CFS) such as filgrastim or pegfilgrastim products. The needle cap on the prefilled syringe contains natural rubber (derived from latex). Do not handle the prefilled syringe if allergic to latex. Allergic reactions can cause a rash over the whole body, shortness of breath, wheezing, dizziness, swelling around your mouth or eyes, fast heart rate, and sweating. If you have any of these symptoms, stop using Fulphila and call your doctor or get emergency help right away.
  • Patients with sickle cell disorder. Using Fulphila can lead to a condition called sickle cell crisis, which may be life-threatening and require discontinuation of Fulphila.
  • Patients receiving radiation therapy. Fulphila may increase the risk of developing a precancerous condition called myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or a type of blood cancer called acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
