This leaflet summarizes important information about Jivi with vial adapter. Please read it carefully before using this medicine. This information does not take the place of talking with your healthcare provider, and it does not include all of the important information about Jivi.

What is Jivi?

Jivi is an injectable medicine used to replace clotting factor (Factor VIII or antihemophilic factor) that is missing in people with hemophilia A (congenital Factor VIII deficiency).

Jivi is used to treat and control bleeding in previously treated adults and adolescents (12 years of age and older ) with hemophilia A. Your healthcare provider may also give you Jivi when you have surgery. Jivi can reduce the number of bleeding episodes in adults and adolescents with hemophilia A when used regularly (prophylaxis).

Jivi is not for use in children < 12 years of age or in previously untreated patients.

Jivi is not used to treat von Willebrand disease.

Who should not use Jivi?

You should not use Jivi if you

are allergic to rodents (like mice and hamsters).
are allergic to any ingredients in Jivi.

What should I tell my healthcare provider before I use Jivi?

Tell your healthcare provider about:

All of your medical conditions that you have or had.
All of the medicines you take, including all prescription and non-prescription medicines, such as over-the-counter medicines, supplements, or herbal remedies.
Pregnancy or planning to become pregnant. It is not known if Jivi may harm your unborn baby.
Breastfeeding. It is not known if Jivi passes into the milk.
Whether you have been told that you have inhibitors to Factor VIII.

What are the possible side effects of Jivi?

The common side effects of Jivi are headache, cough, nausea and fever.

Allergic reactions may occur with Jivi. Call your healthcare provider right away and stop treatment if you get tightness of the chest or throat, dizziness, decrease in blood pressure, or nausea. Allergic reactions to polyethylene glycol (PEG), a component of Jivi, are possible.

Your body can also make antibodies, called “inhibitors”, against Jivi, which may stop Jivi from working properly. Consult with your healthcare provider to make sure you are carefully monitored with blood tests for the development of inhibitors to Factor VIII.

If your bleeding is not being controlled with your usual dose of Jivi, consult your doctor immediately. You may have developed Factor VIII inhibitors or antibodies to PEG and your doctor may carry out tests to confirm this.

These are not all the possible side effects with Jivi. You can ask your healthcare provider for information that is written for healthcare professionals.

Tell your healthcare provider about any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away.
