Indication and Important Safety Information

SAJAZIR™ (Icatibant) injection is indicated for the treatment of acute attacks of hereditary angioedema (HAE) in adults 18 years of age and older.

Warnings and precautions: Given the potential for airway obstruction during acute laryngeal HAE attacks, patients should be advised to seek medical attention in an appropriate healthcare facility immediately in addition to treatment with SAJAZIR.

Adverse reactions: The most commonly reported adverse reactions were injection-site reactions, which occurred in almost all patients (97%) in clinical trials. These injection-site reactions included bruising, hematoma, burning, erythema, hypoesthesia, irritation, numbness, edema, pain, pressure sensation, pruritus, swelling, urticaria, and warmth.

Other common adverse reactions included pyrexia (4%), transaminase increase (4%), and dizziness (3%), as well as rash, nausea, and headache.

Drug interactions: Icatibant is a bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist and thereby has the potential to have a pharmacodynamic interaction with ACE inhibitors where SAJAZIR may attenuate the antihypertensive effect of ACE inhibitors. Clinical trials to date have excluded subjects taking ACE inhibitors.

Use in specific populations: Clinical studies of Icatibant included a limited number of subjects aged 65 and over. Elderly patients are likely to have increased systemic exposure. Reported clinical experience has not identified differences in efficacy and safety between elderly and younger patients.

Safety and effectiveness in patients below 18 years of age have not been established.

The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown.

Pregnancy: Available data from published literature and the pharmacovigilance database with icatibant use in pregnant women have not identified a drug-associated risk of major birth defects, miscarriage or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes.

Lactation: The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for icatibant and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from icatibant or from the underlying maternal condition.
