OCREVUS is indicated for the treatment of:
OCREVUS is contraindicated in patients with active hepatitis B virus infection and in patients with a history of life-threatening infusion reaction to OCREVUS.
Management recommendations for infusion reactions depend on the type and severity of the reaction. Permanently discontinue OCREVUS if a life-threatening or disabling infusion reaction occurs.
Delay OCREVUS administration in patients with an active infection until the infection is resolved. Vaccination with live-attenuated or live vaccines is not recommended during treatment with OCREVUS and after discontinuation, until B-cell repletion
Reduction in Immunoglobulins:
Monitor the level of immunoglobulins at the beginning of treatment. Monitor during and after discontinuation of treatment with OCREVUS, until B-cell repletion, and especially when recurrent serious infections are suspected. Consider discontinuing OCREVUS in patients with serious opportunistic or recurrent serious infections, and if prolonged hypogammaglobulinemia requires treatment with intravenous immunoglobulins
An increased risk of malignancy, including breast cancer, may exist with OCREVUS
