pen.After the rod is no longer visible through

the window,proceed to the next step.

4.Screw the Genotropin Pen parts together

Hold the filling cartridge chamber upright (facing

upward).

Gently screw the filling cartridge chamber and

plastic body back together.This action mixes

the diluent in the rear chamber of the cartridge

with the growth hormone powder in the front

chamber.

Gently movetheGenotropinPen from side to

side to help dissolve the powder completely.

Do not shake it as that might inactivate the

growth hormone.

5.Examine the solution and release trapped air

Look through the cartridge window in the filling

cartridge chamber and make sure the solution

is clear.If you see particles or if the solution is

discolored,do not injectit.Instead contact the

Pfizer representative.

Removethe outer needle cap and saveit for

later.

Removeand discard the inner needle cap.

Be careful not to touch the exposed needle.

Removeany trapped air from the solution as

detailed below:

a.Turnthe black injection knob clockwise.

This will line up the white mark on the black

injection knob with the gray mark on the

body of the pen.

b.Hold theGenotropinPen with the needle

pointing upward and gently tap the filling

cartridge chamber with your finger to move

any air bubbles to the top.

c.Push the black injection knob all the way in.

You will see a drop of liquid appear at the

needle point.

This action will release any trapped air.

d.If no liquid squirts out, press the white release

button and turn the black injection knob

clockwise (to the right) until the white mark

lines up with the greymark again.Repeat

the detailed instructions in steps b and c.

If necessary,reattach the needle guard - push

it back to its place until a click is heard.Again,

be careful not to touch the exposed needle.To

avoid an accidental needle prick, grip the sides

of the needle guard;never push on the end.

6.Dial your prescribed dose

Press the red release button to reset the device.

The black injection knob will pop out and

the dose display window will read 0.0.

With the dose display activated, turn the black

injection knob clockwise until your prescribed

dose is displayed.

If you go too far,just turn the knob back the

other way until the correct dose is displayed.

NOTE: If you turn the black injection knob backwards

beyond 0.0 after a cartridge has been inserted, the

dose display will show (--).Just turn the injection

knob clockwise until numbers reappear on the dose

display.

TheGenotropinPen contains a battery for the

dose display.Tosavethe battery’s energy, the

dose display is activated for two minutes and

then automatically disappears.

Although the display is no longer visible, the

dose remains available for delivery.

NOTE:

5.3 mg Pen - Each click of the black injection

knob equals a one-tenth-of-a milligram dose

(0.1 mg).One click - or 0.1 mg - is the minimum

possible dose per injection;20 clicks - or 2.0

mg - is the maximum possible dose per injection.

If you accidentally dial more than the maximum

2 mg dose, some liquid may emerge from the

tip.This is normal and will not affect your injection

- simply dial back to the correct dose.

12 mg Pen - Each click of the black injection

knob equals a two-tenths-of-a milligram dose

(0.2 mg).One click - or 0.2 mg - is the minimum

possible dose per injection;20 clicks - or 4.0

mg - is the maximum possible dose per injection.

If you accidentally dial more than the maximum

4 mg dose, some liquid may emerge from the

tip.This is normal and will not affect your injection

- simply dial back to the correct dose.

7.Inject your Genotropin dose

Select and prepare an injection site (such as

thigh, buttocks, arm or abdomen), as directed

byyour healthcare provider.

Pinch a fold of skin at the injection site firmly,

and push theGenotropinPen into the skin fold

at a 90°angle.

Push the pen down as far as possible.

Push the black injection knob until it clicks.

Wait at least 10 seconds and then withdraw

theGenotropinPen.

8.Discard the needle and store the Genotropin

Pen

Removeand store the needle guard, if you

used one.

Carefullyreplace the outer protective needle

cap on the needle, as instructed byyour

healthcare provider.

Unscrew the needle and discard it in a proper

disposal container.Never reuse a needle.

Replace the front cap, then put theGenotropin

Pen back in its protective case.Store it in the

refrigerator until your next injection.

Your next injection

If you already havea drug cartridge in your

Genotropin Pen, prepare the pen and your dose

as follows:

Removethe front cap of theGenotropinPen.

Removethe paper covering from the back of a

new needle.

Screw the needle onto the filling cartridge chamber

byturning it clockwise.

Removethe outer and inner protective needle caps.

Follow the instructions above, starting with step 6.

Toreplace the filling cartridge

Press the white release button to reset the

Genotropin Pen.

Turnthe black injection knob counterclockwise

asfarasitwillgo.

Unscrew the filling cartridge chamber and remove

the empty cartridge.

Discard the empty cartridge as instructed byyour

healthcare provider.

To insert a new cartridge and prepare the

Genotropin Pen for use, follow the instructions

detailed above.

Storage

Between uses, store yourGenotropinPen in the

refrigerator in its protective case.Always remove

the needle before storing.

Discard the cartridge in yourGenotropinPen within

28 days from reconstitution (from the moment the

growth hormone and the liquid were mixed) even if

the cartridge is not empty.When you are awayfrom

home, keep yourGenotropinPen in its protective

case and carry it in an insulated bag with an ice

pack to protect it from heat.Place a barrier between

the ice pack and the pen to prevent freezing.

Put it back in a refrigerator as soon as possible.

Caring for your Genotropin Pen

No special maintenance is required.Toclean the

Genotropin Pen, wipe the outside surface with a

damp cloth.Do not immerse in liquid.Do not use

alcohol or any other cleaning agents, as they may

damage the plastic body.Toclean the reusable needle

guard, wipe it with a damp cloth or alcohol swab.

COMMON QUESTIONS

How do I tell how much Genotropin is left in

the Genotropin Pen?

Look at the dose scale located along the side of

the window of the filling cartridge chamber.The

front edge of the gray rubber plunger lines up with

the number of milligrams remaining in the cartridge.

What happens when the battery runs low?

The battery in theGenotropinPen should run for

two years.When it begins to run low due to the end

of the battery’s life,you will see a flashing symbol

( ) in the dose display.This means the battery will

last about another month.When the battery is dead,

the dose display will show the symbol ( ) steadily.

A flashing "bt" in the dose display means the battery

is running verylow for some other reason and will

last for about another month.When the battery is

dead, the display will show a steady "bt".

Call the Pfizer representative for help.

If the battery suddenly dies, can the Genotropin

Pen still be used?

Yes.Call the Pfizer representative for instructions

on how to determine the dose without the electronic

Multi-country outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes sequence type 8 infections linked to consumption of salmon products

Published on: Thu, 25 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 A multi-country outbreak of 12 listeriosis cases caused by Listeria monocytogenes sequence type (ST) 8 has been identified through whole genome sequencing (WGS) analysis in three EU/EEA countries: Denmark (6 cases), Germany (5) and France (1). Four of these cases have died due to or with the disease. It is likely that the extent of this outbreak has been underestimated since the outbreak was identified through sequencing and only a subset of the EU/EEA count...
