Cuvitru is infused under the skin (subcutaneous or SC administration), and will initially be given by your doctor in his office.
You and your caregiver may be taught to give Cuvitru at home by your doctor or nurse, and you will practice them for the first few treatments. Your doctor will determine the correct dose and how often you should receive Cuvitru based on your weight.
Cuvitru is an Immune Globulin Subcutaneous (Human) (IGSC), 20% Solution used as replacement therapy for primary humoral immunodeficiency (PI) in adult and pediatric patients two years of age and older.
Cuvitru is used in patients who do not have enough antibodies in their blood which leads to a weak immune system and frequent infections. Regular and sufficient doses of Cuvitru can raise low immunoglobulin levels in your blood to normal levels.
