Fibrin sealant topical is made from human plasma (part of the blood) and may contain infectious agents (e.g., viruses) that can cause disease. Although fibrin sealant topical (the active ingredient contained in Artiss) is screened, tested, and treated to reduce the possibility that it carries an infectious agent, it can still potentially transmit disease. Discuss with your doctor the risks and benefits of using fibrin sealant topical.

Contact your doctor if you develop fever, drowsiness, chills, runny nose, rash, joint pain, poor appetite, tiredness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark-colored urine, or yellowing of the skin or eyes following treatment with fibrin sealant topical. These may be symptoms of infections that may occur due to use of this product.

Notify your doctor immediately if you experience a rare but serious allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; or hives) to fibrin sealant topical.
