Dosing chart icon.

If a dose or doses are missed, advise your patient to take 1 dose of FABHALTA as soon as possible (even if it is soon before the next scheduled dose) and then to resume the regular dosing schedule.

Switching from C5is (eculizumab and ravulizumab)1

To reduce the potential risk of hemolysis with abrupt discontinuation of other PNH therapies:

  • For patients switching from eculizumab, initiate FABHALTA no later than 1 week after the last dose of eculizumab 

  • For patients switching from ravulizumab, initiate FABHALTA no later than 6 weeks after the last dose of ravulizumab

There is no available information regarding time frame for initiation of FABHALTA after other PNH therapies.

Drug interactions with FABHALTA1

  • Concomitant use of CYP2C8 inducers (eg, rifampin) may decrease FABHALTA exposure, which may result in loss of or reduced efficacy of FABHALTA. Monitor the clinical response and discontinue use of the CYP2C8 inducer if loss of efficacy of FABHALTA is evident 

  • Concomitant use of strong CYP2C8 inhibitors (eg, gemfibrozil) may increase FABHALTA exposure, which may result in an increased risk of adverse reactions with FABHALTA. Coadministration with a strong CYP2C8 inhibitor is not recommended

Considerations for special populations.

Use of FABHALTA in specific populations1

Those who are breastfeeding:

  • Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in a breastfed child, breastfeeding should be discontinued during treatment with FABHALTA and for 5 days after the final dose

Those with renal impairment:

  • FABHALTA is not recommended in patients with severe renal impairment (eGFR <30 mL/ min/1.73 m2) with or without hemodialysis. No dose adjustment is required in patients with mild (eGFR 60 to <90 mL/min/1.73 m2) or moderate (eGFR 30 to <60 mL/min/1.73 m2) renal impairment

Those with hepatic impairment:

  • FABHALTA is not recommended in patients with severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh class C). No dose adjustment is required for patients with mild (Child-Pugh class A) or moderate (Child-Pugh class B) hepatic impairment

Monitoring of PNH Manifestations After FABHALTA Discontinuation

After discontinuing treatment with FABHALTA, closely monitor patients for at least 2 weeks after the last dose for signs and symptoms of hemolysis. These signs include elevated lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) levels along with sudden decrease in hemoglobin or PNH clone size, fatigue, hemoglobinuria, abdominal pain, dyspnea, major adverse vascular events (such as thrombosis, stroke, and myocardial infarction), dysphagia, or erectile dysfunction. If discontinuation of FABHALTA is necessary, consider alternative therapy. 

If hemolysis occurs after discontinuation of FABHALTA, consider restarting treatment with FABHALTA, if appropriate, or initiating another treatment for PNH.1
