Pulmozyme

Overview

What is Pulmozyme?

Dornase alfa is a recombinant human deoxyribonuclease I (rhDNase), an enzyme which selectively cleaves DNA. The protein is produced by genetically engineered Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells containing DNA encoding for the native human protein, deoxyribonuclease I (DNase). The product is purified by column chromatography and tangential flow filtration. The purified glycoprotein contains 260 amino acids with an approximate molecular weight of 37,000 daltons. The primary amino acid sequence is identical to that of the native human enzyme.

PULMOZYME (dornase alfa) inhalation solution is administered by inhalation of an aerosol mist produced by a compressed air driven nebulizer or an approved nebulizer system []. PULMOZYME is a sterile, clear, colorless, highly purified solution in single-use ampules. Each ampule delivers 2.5 mL of the solution to the nebulizer bowl. Each mL of aqueous solution contains 1 mg dornase alfa, calcium chloride dihydrate (0.15 mg) and sodium chloride (8.77 mg). The solution contains no preservative. The nominal pH of the solution is 6.3.

What are the available doses of Pulmozyme?

Inhalation Solution: 2.5 mg/2.5 mL clear, colorless solution in single-use ampules. ()

What should I talk to my health care provider before I take Pulmozyme?

How should I use Pulmozyme?

PULMOZYME (dornase alfa) is indicated for daily administration in conjunction with standard therapies for the management of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients to improve pulmonary function.

In CF patients with an FVC ≥ 40% of predicted, daily administration of PULMOZYME has also been shown to reduce the risk of respiratory tract infections requiring parenteral antibiotics.

The recommended dosage for use in most cystic fibrosis patients is one 2.5 mg single-use ampule inhaled once daily using a recommended jet nebulizer/compressor system or eRapid™ Nebulizer System.

Some patients may benefit from twice daily administration

What should I look out for while using Pulmozyme?

PULMOZYME is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to dornase alfa, Chinese Hamster Ovary cell products, or any component of the product.


What might happen if I take too much Pulmozyme?

Single-dose inhalation studies in rats and monkeys at doses up to 180-times higher than doses routinely used in clinical studies are well tolerated. Single dose oral administration of PULMOZYME in doses up to 200 mg/kg are also well tolerated by rats.

Cystic fibrosis patients have received up to 20 mg BID for up to 6 days and 10 mg BID intermittently (2 weeks on/2 weeks off drug) for 168 days. These doses were well tolerated.


How should I store and handle Pulmozyme?

Store BENDEKA (bendamustine hydrochloride) injection in refrigerator, 2°-8°C (36°-46°F). Retain in original carton until time of use to protect from light.PULMOZYME (dornase alfa) inhalation solution is a sterile, clear, colorless solution supplied in:

Clinical Information

Chemical Structure

No Image found
Clinical Pharmacology

PULMOZYME is recombinant human deoxyribonuclease I (rhDNase), an enzyme which selectively cleaves DNA. In preclinical studies, PULMOZYME hydrolyzes the DNA in sputum of CF patients and reduces sputum viscoelasticity. In CF patients, retention of viscous purulent secretions in the airways contributes both to reduced pulmonary function and to exacerbations of infection. Purulent pulmonary secretions contain very high concentrations of extracellular DNA released by degenerating leukocytes that accumulate in response to infection.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
PULMOZYME is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to dornase alfa, Chinese Hamster Ovary cell products, or any component of the product.

None.
