Official Answer by Drugs.com 7 Mar 2018

Giapreza (angiotensin II) injection, from La Jolla Pharmaceuticals, is an intravenous infusion used to increase blood pressure in adults with septic or other distributive shock. Giapreza is a synthetic human angiotensin II vasoconstrictor. In clinical studies of 321 patients with shock and a critically low blood pressure, significantly more patients responded to treatment with Giapreza compared to placebo. Giapreza effectively increased blood pressure when added to conventional treatments (fluid and vasopressor therapy such as catecholamines and/or vasopressin) used to raise blood pressure.
