What should I know before receiving Autoplex-T?

Before receiving Autoplex-T, you should know that:
  • This medication is made from human blood plasma. While the plasma has been tested and treated for diseases, there is still a small chance it could be contaminated with disease-causing pathogens, including hepatitis A virus or parvovirus B19 (especially risky for pregnant women or people with weakened immunity).
  • While the risks to a fetus from Autoplex-T itself are unknown, you should tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before receiving this medication.
  • Autoplex-T may not be suitable for people with hardened arteries, liver disease or other blood disorders.    
  • Your doctor should be informed of any allergies you have, including latex, before you receive Autoplex-T.
  • Always discuss the risks and benefits of Autoplex-T with your doctor before starting treatment.
