  • Oprelvekin Uses

    Oprelvekin is used in the prevention of low platelet count (thrombocytopenia) and in minimizing the need for transfusion of platelets after a patient has undergone certain chemotherapy. Platelets are important for blood clot and healing of wounds in case of any injury. Having few platelets can cause a person to bruise easily and to bleed for a longer period in case of any injury. Oprelvekin stimulates the bone marrow to produce extra platelets to avoid the already existing platelets from reducing to a very low level. Very low platelet level can lead to bone marrow suppression or the need for blood platelet transfusion.

    • Thrombocytopenia
  • Oprelvekin Dosage

    Oprelvekin should be injected under the skin. Patients should be instructed on how to perform self-injection at home. Patients should never inject Oprelvekin if they do not understand how the injection should be given

    • The recommended adult dose for Thrombocytopenia should be 50 mcg/kg subcutaneously once every day 6-24 hours after the completion of chemotherapy (Non-myeloid malignancy). Patients are required to continue with therapy until at least 50000/mm3 post-nadir platelet count or for a maximum of 21 days.
