What is Ruconest?

Ruconest is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pharming Healthcare, Inc. Ruconest is a C1 esterase inhibitor [recombinant] used for the treatment of acute attacks in adults and adolescent patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE). It is not known if Ruconest is effective for treating HAE attacks that affect your throat.

With HAE, you have low levels of C1 esterase inhibitor (C1-INH), or you have a faulty version of it. Ruconest replaces the missing or faulty protein in your blood and helps control attacks of HAE.

What doses of Ruconest are available?

Ruconest is available as 2100 IU lyophilized powder for reconstitution for injection in a single-use vial.

Reconstitute each vial (2100 IU) by adding 14 mL sterile water for injection per vial to make a solution of 150 IU per mL. Administer the solution at room temperature as a slow intravenous injection over 5 minutes.

If the symptoms continue, a second dose can be given at the recommended dose level. Do not exceed 4200 IU per dose and no more than two doses should be administered within a 24 hour period. Your dosage will depend on your body weight in kilograms (kg).

Please read the full prescribing information, including the patient product information, and always speak to a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
