Hizentra Announcement

by Whitney

Canadian Blood Services and Hema-Quebec have announced that Hizentra 20ml (4g) will be available in pre-filled syringe. The transition of the 20ml format from vials to pre-filled syringes is expected to be completed by the end of June 2021. This transition will mean that Hizentra 20ml (4g), 10ml (2g) and 5ml (1g) will only be available in pre-filled syringe in Canada and will no longer be available in vials. 

If you have any questions regarding this change of format, please contact your infusion nurse or prescribing physician. 

You can find the letter announcing the changes on Canadian Blood Services website here and Hema-Quebec website here
