What is Reblozyl?

Reblozyl is a medication manufactured by Bristol Myers Squibb. It is an erythroid maturation agent with FDA approval (Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of:

  • Anemia in adult patients with beta-thalassemia (an inherited blood disorder in which your red blood cells don’t make hemoglobin correctly) who require regular red blood cell transfusions (RBC)
  • Transfusion-dependent anemia failing treatment with an erythropoiesis-stimulating agent and requiring 2 or more RBC units over 8 weeks in adult patients, who have very low to intermediate-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) with ring sideroblasts (MDS-RS), who had an unsatisfactory response to or are ineligible for erythropoietin-based therapy or with myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasm with ring sideroblasts and thrombocytosis (MDS/MPN-RS-T)

Reblozyl is not for use as a substitute for RBC transfusions in patients who need immediate correction of anemia

What doses of Reblozyl are available?

Reblozyl is available in injection form, in the following doses: 25 mg lyophilized powder in a single-dose vial for reconstitution, 75 mg lyophilized powder in a single-dose vial for reconstitution

Starting dose is 1 mg/kg once every 3 weeks by subcutaneous injection under the skin. Hemoglobin (Hgb) results should be checked before each dose. See full prescribing information for preparation and administration instructions.

Reblozyl doses are dependent on your weight and your dose may change if you gain or lose weight. Also, your blood pressure will need to be checked often.
