HEALTH CANADA ADVISORY

March 25, 2019

Health Canada has issued information concerning the use of Darzalex (Daratumumab). To read the full Health Canada Advisory, visit Health Canada's web site at www.hc-sc.gc.ca.

Anemia: Darzalex (Daratumumab) may cause low levels of red blood cells. If you experience symptoms of reduced red blood cell count (anemia) such as shortness of breath, feeling unusually tired, or pale skin, contact your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will order routine blood tests to make sure potential problems are caught early.

Bleeding: Darzalex (Daratumumab) may cause a reduced number of platelets in the blood, which can make it difficult to stop cuts from bleeding. If you notice any signs of bleeding, such as frequent nosebleeds, unexplained bruising, or black and tarry stools, notify your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will order routine blood tests to make sure potential problems are caught early.

Hepatitis B reactivation: People who have a hepatitis B infection that is dormant may experience the infection returning, causing liver dysfunction or liver failure. If you have a history of hepatitis B, discuss with your doctor how Darzalex (Daratumumab) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of this mediation, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms of worsening liver function, such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

Infection: As well as killing cancer cells, Darzalex (Daratumumab) can reduce the number of cells that fight infection in the body (white blood cells). If possible, avoid contact with people with contagious infections. Tell your doctor immediately if you notice signs of an infection, such as fever or chills, severe diarrhea, shortness of breath, prolonged dizziness, headache, stiff neck, weight loss, or listlessness. Your doctor will do blood tests regularly to monitor the number of specific types of blood cells in your blood.

Infusion reactions: Darzalex (Daratumumab) can cause a hypersensitivity or infusion reaction. Your doctor will prescribe a corticosteroid, an antihistamine, and a fever-reducing medication to help reduce the risk of this type of reaction. People who have breathing problems such as Asthma or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) (COPD) may require inhalers if breathing problems develop after the infusion. Infusion reactions generally appear during the infusion of the medication and may include flushing, chest pain, shortness of breath, and a dramatic drop in blood pressure. In rare instances, these reactions can cause death, so it is important to let your nurse or doctor know immediately if you notice any unusual reactions.

Pregnancy: Darzalex (Daratumumab) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Darzalex (Daratumumab), contact your doctor immediately. Women who may become pregnant who are taking Darzalex (Daratumumab) should use an effective method of birth control, such as condoms, during treatment and for 3 months after the last dose of Darzalex (Daratumumab).
