What Is Xembify?

Xembify is a type of subcutaneous immunoglobulin (SCIG). It contains a broad spectrum of antibodies (immune globulins) extracted from a large pool of human plasma.

Xembify is a 20% immune globulin solution that is FDA indicated for primary humoral immunodeficiency and can be used in a number of other medical conditions.

How Does Xembify Work?

Xembify provides a variety of immunoglobulins (Ig) that are opsonizing (more easily destroyed) and neutralizing in nature. Bacteria, viruses, parasites, and mycoplasmal agents and the toxins they release are neutralized by the antibodies found in Xembify.

What Is Xembify Used To Treat?

Xembify is FDA-indicated for primary humoral immunodeficiency in patients 2 years of age and older. This includes, but is not limited to, congenital agammaglobulinemia, common variable immunodeficiency (CVID), X-linked agammaglobulinemia, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, and severe combined immunodeficiencies.

Primary Humoral Immunodeficiency (PI)

The suboptimal function of the immune system in a primary humoral immunodeficiency patient can be detrimental. Treatment with Xembify can greatly strengthen the immune system and improve the quality of life.

Warnings of Xembify Usage

Upon evaluation, your doctor will determine if Xembify is ideal for you. Inform your doctor if you:

  • Have cardiovascular (heart) problems
  • Suffer from hyperviscosity (thickness) of blood from a sedentary lifestyle
  • Have a permanent IV catheter placed
  • Are taking any medications that contain estrogen
  • Have renal (kidney) impairment
  • Have risk factors of thrombosis

Patients with the risk of thrombosis should be treated with extra caution. In such cases, the doctor may prescribe Xembify at a minimum dose and a lower infusion rate.

Xembify Dosing

A patient’s pharmacokinetics and clinical response determine the dose of Xembify. The following sequence is adopted to determine the right amount. 

  1. After initiating Xembify treatment, measure the serum IgG trough level of the patient as early as 5 weeks.
  2. Continue monitoring IgG trough level every 2 to 3 months to determine if any subsequent dose adjustments are needed.
  3. For frequent dosing (i.e., two to seven times per week), divide the calculated weekly dose by the desired number of infusions per week.  

Note: If a patient does not maintain adequate clinical response to Xembify therapy (or serum IgG level is not achieved to the level of a previous treatment), dose adjustments may be necessary. For dose adjustments, the doctor will calculate the difference of the IgG trough level from the target IgG trough level, then find the difference via the following table:

Dose Adjustment (ML per Week)

Edit
Difference from Target IgG trough level (mg/dl) 10kg 15kg 20kg 30kg 40kg 50kg 60kg 70kg 80kg 90kg 100kg 110kg 120kg
50 0 1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3 4 4 5
100 1 1 2 2 3 4 5 5 6 7 8 8 9
150 1 2 2 3 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 13 14
200 2 2 3 5 6 8 9 11 12 14 15 17 18
250 2 3 4 6 8 9 11 13 15 17 19 21 23
300 2 3 5 7 9 11 13 16 18 20 23 25 27
350 3 4 5 8 11 13 16 19 21 24 27 29 32
400 3 5 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 27 30 33 36
450 3 5 7 10 14 17 20 24 27 31 34 38 41
500 4 6 8 11 15 19 23 27 30 34 38 42 45

Locate the corresponding amount (in ml) by which to increase/decrease the weekly dose based on the patient’s body weight.

Example: If a patient with a body weight of 70 kg has IgG trough level of 900 mg/dl and the target level is 1000mg/dl, the difference is 100mg/dl. Thus, increase the weekly dose by 5 ml.
