RhoGAM Resources For Patients

To help you counsel and educate your patients, Kedrion Biopharma has developed a series of educational tools and resources that help explain many different topics, like understanding blood types and how Rh-sensitization may lead to hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN).

For patient counseling:

 

  • Teaching Chart: Can help you explain how and why HDFN can develop and
    how RhoGAM works to potentially prevent it.

Indication

  • RhoGAM® Ultra-Filtered PLUS [Rho(D) Immune Globulin (Human)] (300 μg) and MICRhoGAM® Ultra-Filtered PLUS [Rho(D) Immune Globulin (Human)] (50 μg) are immune globulins indicated for use in preventing Rh immunization for pregnancy and other obstetrical conditions in Rh-negative women unless the father or baby is conclusively Rh-negative, e.g., delivery of an Rh-positive baby irrespective of the ABO groups of the mother and baby, any antepartum fetal-maternal hemorrhage (suspected or proven), actual or threatened pregnancy loss at any stage of gestation and ectopic pregnancy.
  • In the case of postpartum use, RhoGAM and MICRhoGAM are intended for maternal administration. Do not inject the newborn infant.

Important Safety Information

  • RhoGAM and MICRhoGAM are contraindicated in Rh-positive individuals and in patients with a known history of anaphylactic or severe systemic reactions to the administration of human immune globulin products.
  • Severe hypersensitivity reactions may occur with the use of RhoGAM or MICRhoGAM. RhoGAM and MICRhoGAM should be administered in a setting where appropriate equipment, medications such as epinephrine, and personnel trained in the management of hypersensitivity, anaphylaxis, and shock are available.
  • Products made from human blood may carry a risk of transmitting infectious agents (e.g., viruses, the variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease [vCJD] and, theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease [CJD] agent).
  • After administration of Rho(D) immune globulin, a transitory increase of various passively transferred antibodies in the patient’s blood may yield positive serological testing results.
  • The most frequently reported adverse reactions in patients receiving Rho(D) Immune Globulin (Human) products are injection site reactions, such as swelling, induration, redness and mild pain or warmth. Possible systemic reactions are skin rash, body aches or a slight elevation in temperature. Severe systemic reactions include allergic reactions and hemolytic reactions.
