PFIZER IS BUILDING ONTO THE CLINICAL EXPERIENCE OF PEGFILGRASTIM

​​​​​​NYVEPRIA is an FDA-approved biosimilar to Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim)1*

Product Information & Dosing

Ordering information

Dosing and administration

NYVEPRIA dosing for adults1


  • NYVEPRIA is administered subcutaneously via a single-dose prefilled syringe for manual use

   *Biosimilar means that the biological product is approved based on data demonstrating that it is highly similar to an FDA-approved biological product, known as a reference product, and that there are no clinically meaningful differences between the biosimilar and the reference product.1

   †The NYVEPRIA prefilled syringe is not designed to allow for direct administration of doses less than 0.6 mL  (6 mg). The syringe does not bear graduation marks, which are necessary to accurately measure doses of NYVEPRIA less than 0.6 mL (6 mg) for direct administration to patients. Thus, the direct administration to patients requiring dosing of less than 0.6 mL (6 mg) is not recommended due to the potential for dosing errors.

   ‡For pediatric patients weighing less than 10 kg, administer 0.1 mg/kg (0.01 mL/kg) of NYVEPRIA.

​​​​​​​INJECTION: 6 mg/0.6 mL of a sterile, clear, colorless, preservative-free solution in a single-dose prefilled syringe with BD UltraSafe Plus Passive Needle Guard for manual use only

Storage and handling

Store refrigerated between 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C) in the carton to protect from light

Do not shake the prefilled syringe

Discard syringes stored at room temperature for more than 15 days

Avoid freezing; if frozen, thaw in the refrigerator before administration.
​​​​​​​Discard syringe if frozen more than once

The NYVEPRIA syringe plunger stopper and needle cover are not made with natural rubber latex.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Please see the full NYVEPRIA Prescribing Information for additional details.​​​​​​​

Contraindications
  • NYVEPRIA is contraindicated in patients with a history of serious allergic reactions to pegfilgrastim products or filgrastim products
  • Reactions have included anaphylaxis
Warnings and Precautions
Splenic Rupture
  • Splenic rupture, including fatal cases, can occur following the administration of pegfilgrastim products
  • Evaluate for an enlarged spleen or splenic rupture in patients who report left upper abdominal or shoulder pain after receiving NYVEPRIA
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)
  • ARDS can occur in patients receiving pegfilgrastim products
  • Evaluate patients who develop fever and lung infiltrates or respiratory distress after receiving NYVEPRIA
  • Discontinue NYVEPRIA in patients with ARDS
Serious Allergic Reactions
  • Serious allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, can occur in patients receiving pegfilgrastim products
  • The majority of reported events occurred upon initial exposure
  • Allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, can recur within days after the discontinuation of initial anti‐allergic treatment
  • Permanently discontinue NYVEPRIA in patients with serious allergic reactions
  • Do not administer NYVEPRIA to patients with a history of serious allergic reactions to pegfilgrastim products or filgrastim products
Use in Patients with Sickle Cell Disorders
  • Severe and sometimes fatal sickle cell crises can occur in patients with sickle cell disorders receiving pegfilgrastim products
  • Discontinue NYVEPRIA if sickle cell crisis occurs
Glomerulonephritis
  • Glomerulonephritis has occurred in patients receiving pegfilgrastim products
  • The diagnoses were based on azotemia, hematuria (microscopic and macroscopic), proteinuria, and renal biopsy
  • Generally, events of glomerulonephritis resolved after dose-reduction or discontinuation of pegfilgrastim products
  • If glomerulonephritis is suspected, evaluate for cause. If causality is likely, consider dose-reduction or interruption of NYVEPRIA
Leukocytosis
  • White blood cell counts of 100 x 109/L or greater have been observed in patients receiving pegfilgrastim products
  • Monitoring of complete blood count (CBC) during NYVEPRIA therapy is recommended
Thrombocytopenia
  • Thrombocytopenia has been reported in patients receiving pegfilgrastim products
  • Monitor platelet counts
Capillary Leak Syndrome (CLS)
  • CLS has been reported after granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G‐CSF) administration, including pegfilgrastim products, and is characterized by hypotension, hypoalbuminemia, edema, and hemoconcentration
  • Episodes vary in frequency and severity and may be life‐threatening if treatment is delayed
  • Patients who develop symptoms of CLS should be closely monitored and receive standard symptomatic treatment, which may include a need for intensive care
Potential for Tumor Growth Stimulatory Effects on Malignant Cells
  • The G-CSF receptor through which pegfilgrastim and filgrastim products act has been found on tumor cell lines
  • The possibility that pegfilgrastim products act as a growth factor for any tumor type, including myeloid malignancies and myelodysplasia, diseases for which pegfilgrastim products are not approved, cannot be excluded
Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) and Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in Patients with Breast and Lung Cancer
  • MDS and AML have been associated with the use of pegfilgrastim products in conjunction with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy in patients with breast and lung cancer
  • Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of MDS/AML in these settings
Aortitis
  • Aortitis has been reported in patients receiving pegfilgrastim products. It may occur as early as the first week after start of therapy
  • Manifestations may include generalized signs and symptoms such as fever, abdominal pain, malaise, back pain, and increased inflammatory markers (eg, c-reactive protein and white blood cell count)
  • Consider aortitis in patients who develop these signs and symptoms without known etiology. Discontinue NYVEPRIA if aortitis is suspected
Nuclear Imaging
  • Increased hematopoietic activity of the bone marrow in response to growth factor therapy has been associated with transient positive bone imaging changes. This should be considered when interpreting bone imaging results
Most Common Adverse Reactions
  • Bone pain
  • Pain in extremity

NYVEPRIA is indicated to decrease the incidence of infection, as manifested by febrile neutropenia, in patients with non-myeloid malignancies receiving myelosuppressive anti-cancer drugs associated with a clinically significant incidence of febrile neutropenia.

Limitations of Use

NYVEPRIA is not indicated for the mobilization of peripheral blood progenitor cells for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
