indications and important facts about eloctate
what is the most important information I should know about ELOCTATE® [Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), Fc Fusion Protein]? You should not use ELOCTATE if you are allergic to ELOCTATE or any of its other ingredients. Tell your healthcare provider if you have had an allergic reaction to any Factor VIII product prior to using ELOCTATE.
Allergic reactions may occur. Call your healthcare provider or emergency department right away if you have any of the following symptoms: difficulty breathing, chest tightness, swelling of the face, rash or hives.
Your body can also make antibodies called "inhibitors" against ELOCTATE. This can stop ELOCTATE from working properly. Your healthcare provider may give you blood tests to check for inhibitors.
THE MOST COMMON SIDE EFFECTS OF ELOCTATE INCLUDE: headache, rash, joint pain, muscle pain and general discomfort. These are not all the possible side effects of ELOCTATE. Talk to your healthcare provider for more information and about any side effect that bothers you or does not go away.
WHAT SHOULD I TELL MY HEALTHCARE PROVIDER BEFORE STARTING ELOCTATE?
Tell your healthcare provider about all your health conditions, including if you:
AFTER STARTING ELOCTATE:
If your bleeding is not controlled and you experience a lack of clinical response to Factor VIII therapy, call your healthcare provider right away.

Your healthcare provider may give you ELOCTATE when you have surgery.
HOW SHOULD I RECEIVE ELOCTATE?
ELOCTATE should be administered as ordered by your healthcare provider. You should be trained on how to do infusions by your healthcare provider.
