What is Onpattro?

Onpattro has FDA approval (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of the polyneuropathy of hereditary transthyretin-mediated amyloidosis (hATTR amyloidosis) in adults. It is manufactured by Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Onpattro contains a transthyretin-directed small interfering RNA that works by encasing siRNA in lipids and stops the production of disease-causing amyloid proteins.

What doses of Onpattro are available?

Onpattro is available as a Lipid Complex Injection in the following doses: 10 mg/5 mL (2 mg/mL) in a single-dose vial.

Onpattro doses are based on actual body weight. Your dose may need to change if you gain or lose weight. Onpattro treatment is given as an intravenous infusion into a vein. A healthcare provider will give you this injection once every 3 weeks. The infusion must be given slowly, it can take up to 80 minutes to complete.

You may need regular medical tests, even if you have no symptoms. Tests can help your doctor decide if this medicine is working. You may also need regular eye tests.

Always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Onpattro active ingredients

Patisiran is a double-stranded siRNA that causes degradation of mutant and wild-type TTR mRNA through RNA interference (RNAi). This results in a reduction of serum TTR protein and TTR protein deposits in tissues.

Onpattro side effects

The most common side effects of Onpattro in clinical trials include:

  • Upper respiratory tract infections

In rare instances, Onpattro can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Infusion-related reactions – discontinue the infusion if a serious or life-threatening infusion-related reaction occurs. To reduce the risk of IRRs, patients should receive premedication with a corticosteroid (acetaminophen, dexamethasone) and antihistamines (H1 and H2 blockers such as diphenhydramine) at least 60 minutes before treatment begins
  • Reduced serum vitamin A levels – refer to an ophthalmologist if ocular symptoms suggestive of vitamin A deficiency occurs. If you have problems with your vision, such as night blindness, talk to your doctor. Your doctor will tell you to take a vitamin A supplement every day

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Onpattro against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Onpattro to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
