What is Cuvrior?
Cuvrior is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Orphalan SA. FDA approval of Cuvrior was based on the results of the global phase 3 trial, CHELATE.
Cuvrior is a copper chelator agent used for the treatment of adult patients with stable Wilson’s disease who are de-coppered and tolerant to penicillamine. Wilson’s disease is a rare genetic disorder that stops the body from removing copper, causing it to build up in the liver, brain, eyes, and other organs. High copper levels can cause life-threatening organ damage.
Cuvrior removes copper from the body by forming a complex that is excreted through urine. Cuvrior may also prevent copper absorption from the intestinal tract.
What doses of Cuvrior are available?
Cuvrior is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 300 mg.
Determine serum non-ceruloplasmin copper (NCC) levels when starting treatment, after 3 months, and then every 6 months thereafter. The starting total daily dosage in adults is 300 mg up to a maximum dosage of 3,000 mg orally in divided doses, twice a day. Take Cuvrior on an empty stomach. Swallow the tablets whole, without crushing, chewing, or dissolving them.
Please see the full prescribing information. Also, read the labeling provided and drug information with your medicine and always speak with your healthcare provider for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
