Neulasta® Onpro®, evaluated in a real-world evidence study of FN
and reliable supply,
Onpro® has broad national coverage and financial support options for any insurance type6
Onpro® helps overcome next-day G-CSF delivery challenges
G-CSF = granulocyte colony-stimulating factor; FN = febrile neutropenia; OBI = on-body injector.
Pivotal trial study design and results3
Phase 3, multicenter, multinational, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of patients with breast cancer (Neulasta® [n = 463] or placebo [n = 465]) receiving 100 mg/m2 docetaxel Q3W for up to 4 cycles. The key endpoint was the percentage of patients who developed FN (Neulasta® 1% vs placebo 17%, P < 0.001). Also, secondary endpoints were lower for Neulasta®-treated patients as compared to placebo-treated patients (the incidence of hospitalization [1% vs 14%] and IV anti-infective use [2% vs 10%]).
FN defined as temperature ≥ 38.2°C and absolute neutrophil count < 0.5 x 109/L; Q3W = once every 3 weeks; IV = intravenous.
Onpro® is designed to automatically deliver pegfilgrastim ~27 hours after application.‡
‡Incomplete doses have been reported with Neulasta® Onpro® due to device not performing as intended. This may increase risk of neutropenia, FN, and/or infection.

Neulasta® Injection: 6 mg/0.6 mL in a single-dose prefilled syringe for manual use only.
Neulasta® Injection: 6 mg/0.6 mL in a single-dose prefilled syringe co-packaged with the on-body injector (OBI) for Neulasta® (Neulasta® Onpro® kit).
Special Instructions for the On-body Injector (OBI) for Neulasta®
A healthcare provider must fill the on-body injector (OBI) with Neulasta® using the co-packaged prefilled syringe and then apply the OBI to the patient’s skin (abdomen or back of arm). The back of the arm may only be used if there is a caregiver available to monitor the status of the OBI. Approximately 27 hours after the OBI is applied to the patient’s skin, Neulasta® will be delivered over approximately 45 minutes. A healthcare provider may initiate administration with the OBI on the same day as the administration of cytotoxic chemotherapy, as long as the OBI delivers Neulasta® no less than 24 hours after the administration of cytotoxic chemotherapy.
The prefilled syringe co-packaged in the Neulasta® Onpro® kit contains additional solution to compensate for liquid loss during delivery through the OBI. If this syringe is used for manual subcutaneous injection, the patient will receive an overdose. If the prefilled syringe for manual use is used with the OBI, the patient may receive less than the recommended dose.
Do not use the OBI to deliver any other drug product except the Neulasta® prefilled syringe co-packaged with the OBI. Use of the OBI has not been studied in pediatric patients.
The OBI should be applied to intact, non-irritated skin on the arm or abdomen.
A missed dose could occur due to an OBI failure or leakage. Instruct patients using the OBI to notify their healthcare professional immediately in order to determine the need for a replacement dose of pegfilgrastim if they suspect that the device may not have performed as intended. If the patient misses a dose, a new dose should be administered by single prefilled syringe for manual use as soon as possible after detection.
Review the Patient Information and Patient Instructions for Use with the patient and provide the instructions to the patient.
Refer to the Healthcare Provider Instructions for Use for the OBI for full administration information.
