IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Cathflo Activase (alteplase)

INDICATIONS

Cathflo®Activase®(alteplase) is indicated for the restoration of function to central venous access devices as assessed by the ability to withdraw blood.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Contraindications

Cathflo Activase should not be administered to patients with known hypersensitivity to alteplase or any component of the formulation.

PRECAUTIONS

General

Certain causes of catheter dysfunction should be considered before treatment with Cathflo Activase (e.g. catheter malposition, mechanical failure, consriction by a suture and lipid deposits or drug precipitates within the catheter lumen).

Excessive pressure should be avoided when Cathflo Activase is instilled into the catheter.

Bleeding

The most frequent adverse reaction associated with all thrombolytics in all approved indications is bleeding. Cathflo Activase has not been studied in patients known to be at risk for bleeding events that may be associated with the use of thrombolytics. Caution should be exercised with patients who have any condition for which bleeding constitutes a significant hazard.

Should serious bleeding in a critical location (e.g., intracranial, gastrointestinal, retroperitoneal, pericardial) occur, treatment with Cathflo Activase should be stopped and the drug should be withdrawn from the catheter.

Infections

Cathflo Activase should be used with caution in the presence of known or suspected infection in the catheter. Using Cathflo Activase in patients with infected catheters may release a localized infection into the systemic circulation.

Adverse Reactions

In clinical trials, the most serious adverse events reported after treatment were sepsis, gastrointestinal bleeding, and venous thrombosis.
