Der er ikke udført formelle forsøg på patienter yngre end 18 år og på patienter ældre end 75

år.

Generel information

Caverject Dual Chamber bør administreres ved direkte intrakavernøs injektion med den

vedlagte kanyle (29G, 12 mm). Det sædvanlige injektionssted er langs den dorsolaterale side

af den proximale trediedel af penis. Synlige vener bør undgås. Der skal både veksles mellem

begge sider af penis og skiftes injektionssted mellem injektionerne.

De første injektioner med Caverject Dual Chamber skal foretages af medicinsk trænet

personale. Efter tilstrækkelig træning kan patienten selv fortage injektionerne hjemme. Det

anbefales, at patienten kontrolleres regelmæssigt (f.eks. hver 3. måned), især i

begyndelsesfasen med selvinjektioner, hvor det kan blive nødvendigt med dosisjusteringer.

Caverject Dual Chamber dosis fastlægges individuelt for hver enkelt patient af en læge ved

omhyggelig dosistitrering. Der bør anvendes den lavest effektive dosis, som giver patienten

en erektion, der er tilfredsstillende til gennemførelse af samleje. Det anbefales, at den givne

dosis giver en erektion, der ikke varer mere end en time. Hvis varigheden er længere, bør

dosis reduceres. Størstedelen af patienterne opnår en tilfredsstillende virkning med doser i

intervallet 5-20 µg.

Engangssprøjten er beregnet til at indgive en enkelt dosis, som kan justeres trinvis med 25%

af den nominelle dosis ad gangen. Doser på over 40 µg alprostadil er normalt ikke berettiget.

Følgende doseringer kan indgives ved hjælp af Caverject Dual Chamber:

A.

Behandling

Ved erektil dysfunktion af vaskulogen, psykogen eller blandet årsag gives initialt 2,5 µg.

Den anden dosis bør være 5 µg, hvis der er delvis effekt, og 7,5 µg, hvis der ingen effekt

er. Efterfølgende optitreres med 5-10 µg ad gangen, til den optimale dosis er fundet. Hvis

der ikke ses effekt ved den indgivne dosis, kan næste, højere dosis gives indenfor en

time. Hvis der ses en effekt, bør der gå en dag, før den næste dosis gives.

Ved erektil dysfunktion af neurogen årsag, som kræver mindre doser end 2,5 µg, bør det

overvejes at dosistitrere med Caverject pulver til injektionsvæske, begyndende med en

dosis på 1,25 µg. Hvis denne dosis ikke giver effekt, bør næste dosis være 2,5 µg. Bortset

fra startdosis er det muligt at dosistitrere med både Caverject Dual Chamber og Caverject

pulver til injektionsvæske med samme optitrering, som ved behandling af ikke-neurogen

erektil dysfunktion.

Anbefalet injektionsfrekvens er højst 1 gang daglig og højst 3 gange på en uge.

B.

Diagnosticering

Patienter uden tegn på neurologisk dysfunktion: 10-20 µg alprostadil injiceres i corpus

cavernosum og masseres ind i penis. Over 80% af patienterne kan forventes at reagere på

en enkelt 20 µg alprostadildosis.

60195_spc.doc

Side 2 af 11

Patienter med tegn på neurologisk dysfunktion: Disse patienter kan forventes at reagere

på lavere doser alprostadil. Hos patienter med mild erektil dysfunktion eller erektil

dysfunktion forårsaget af neurologisk sygdom/traumer må dosis ved diagnosticering ikke

overskride 10 µg, og en begyndelsesdosis på 5 µg er sandsynligvis tilstrækkelig.

Skulle en efterfølgende erektion vare længere end en time, bør detumescent behandling

iværksættes, før patienten forlader behandlingsstedet for at undgå risiko for priapisme

(jvf. pkt. 4.9). Erektionen bør være faldet fuldstændig, og penis skal være fuldstændig

slap, når patienten forlader behandlingsstedet.

Patienter bør monitoreres for systemiske bivirkninger i tilfælde af manglende erektil

respons under titreringsfasen.

4.3

Kontraindikationer

Caverject Dual Chamber bør ikke anvendes af patienter med overfølsomhed over for

alprostadil eller over for et eller flere af hjælpestofferne. Patienter med tilstande, der kan

disponere til priapisme, såsom seglcelleanæmi eller -træk, multipelt myelom eller leukæmi,

patienter med anatomiske deformationer af penis, såsom vinkling, kavernøs fibrose,

forhudsforsnævring eller Peyronies sygdom samt patienter med implantater i penis bør ikke

behandles med Caverject Dual Chamber.

Caverject Dual Chamber bør ikke anvendes til mænd, for hvem seksuel aktivitet ikke er

tilrådelig eller er kontraindiceret (f.eks. patienter med svær hjertesygdom).

4.4

Særlige advarsler og forsigtighedsregler vedrørende brugen

De underliggende medicinske årsager til erektil dysfunktion, bør diagnosticeres og

behandles inden behandling med alprostadil initieres.

Forlænget erektion og/eller priapisme kan forkomme efter intrakavernøs adminsitration af

alprostadil. For at mindske risikoen, skal den laveste effektive dosis vælges.

Patienter bør instrueres i straks at søge læge, hvis erektionen varer i en længere periode,

f.eks. 4 timer eller mere. Behandling af priapisme bør ikke udskydes mere end 6 timer.

Behandling af priapisme bør følge gældende retningslinier for behandling (se pkt 4.9).

Smertefuld erektion forekommer især hos patienter med anatomiske deformationer af penis,

f.eks. vinkling, forhudsforsnævring, kavernøs fibrose, Peyronies sygdom eller plaques. Penil

fibrose inklusive vinkling, kavernøs fibrose, fibrøse knuder og Peyronies sygdom kan opstå

efter intrakavernøs administration af Caverject Dual Chamber. Forekomsten af fibrose kan

øges ved langvarig brug. Regelmæssig opfølgning af patienter med omhyggelig undersøgelse

af penis anbefales kraftigt for at opdage tegn på penil fibrose eller Peyronies sygdom.

Behandling med Caverject Dual Chamber bør seponeres hos patienter, der udvikler penil

vinkling, kavernøs fibrose eller Peyronies sygdom.

Patienter i behandling med antikoagulantia f.eks. warfarin eller heparin kan have en øget

blødningstendens efter intrakavernøs injektion. Hos nogle patienter kan injektion af Caverject

Dual Chamber inducere en lille blødning på injektionsstedet. Hos patienter inficeret med

blodoverførte sygdomme kan dette øge smitterisikoen for deres partner.

Caverject Dual Chamber bør anvendes med forsigtighed til patienter med kardiovaskulære og

cerebrovaskulære risikofaktorer.

60195_spc.doc

Side 3 af 11

Caverject Dual Chamber bør anvendes med forsigtighed af patienter, som har haft

forbigående iskæmiske anfald eller som lider af ustabile kardiovaskulære sygdomme.

Seksuel stimulering og samleje kan føre til hjerte- og lungeproblemer hos patienter med

koronar hjertesygdom, hjerteinsufficiens eller lungesygdom. Caverject Dual Chamber bør

anvendes med forsigtighed af disse patienter, og de bør udvise forsigtighed ved seksuel

aktivitet.

Caverject Dual Chamber er ikke beregnet til samtidig administration med andre lægemidler til

behandling af erektil dysfunktion (se også pkt. 4.5).

Potentialet for misbrug af Caverject Dual Chamber bør tages i betragtning hos patienter, der

har haft psykiske sygdomme eller misbrugsproblemer.

Rekonstitueret opløsning af Caverject Dual Chamber er kun beregnet til engangsbrug.

Injektionskammersystemet/sprøjten og eventuelle rester i sprøjten skal bortskaffes forsvarligt.

Alprostadil sterilt pulver og solvens (tokammer-cylinderampul) indeholder benzylalkohol,

som kan forårsage overfølsomhedsreaktioner.

Der anvendes en meget tynd nål ved administration af Caverject Dual Chamber, og som ved

alle meget tynde nåle, er der risiko for, at nålen knækker.

Der er set tilfælde af knækkede nåle, hvor en del af nålen blev siddende tilbage i penis. Nogle

tilfælde krævede hospitalsindlæggelse, og fjernelse af nålen ved operation.

Omhyggelig patientvejledning i korrekt brug og injektionsteknik kan mindske risikoen for, at

nålen knækker.

Patienten skal instrueres i, at hvis nålen er bøjet, må den ikke bruges, og man skal ikke

forsøge at rette en bøjet nål ud. Patienten skal fjerne nålen fra sprøjten, smide den ud og sætte

en ny, ubrugt steril nål på sprøjten.

4.5

Interaktion med andre lægemidler og andre former for interaktion

Sympatomimetika kan reducere alprostadils effekt.

Alprostadil kan forstærke effekten af antihypertensiva, vasodilaterende stoffer,

antikoagulantia og trombocytaggregationshæmmere.

Virkningen af samtidig behandling med alprostadil og anden behandling for erektil

dysfunktion (f.eks. sildenafil) eller med andre lægemidler, som inducerer erektion (f.eks.

papaverin), er ikke formelt undersøgt. Sådanne lægemiddelstoffer bør ikke anvendes sammen

med Caverject Dual Chamber på grund af potentialet for forlænget varighed af erektionerne.

Virkninger på evnen til at føre motorkøretøj eller betjene maskiner

Ingen mærkning.

4.8

Bivirkninger

Den hyppigst forekommende bivirkning efter intrakavernøs injektion var smerte i penis. 30%

af patienterne oplevede smerte mindst en gang. 11% af de administrerede injektioner var

forbundet med smerter. I de fleste tilfælde blev smerten vurderet som mild eller moderat. 3%

af patienterne stoppede behandlingen på grund af smerter.

Penil fibrose inklusiv vinkling, fibrøse knuder og Peyronies sygdom blev rapporteret af 3% af

patienterne i de kliniske forsøg. I et selvinjektionsforsøg med behandlingsvarighed på op til

18 måneder var hyppigheden af penil fibrose højere, ca. 8%.

Hæmatom og blodudtrækninger på injektionsstedet, som er mere relateret til

injektionsteknikken end til alprostadils effekt, blev rapporteret af henholdsvis 3% og 2% af

patienterne.

Forlænget varighed af erektionen (4-6 timer) forekom hos 4% af patienterne. Priapisme

(smertefuld erektion i mere end 6 timer) forekom hos 0,4%. I de fleste tilfælde forsvandt den

spontant.

Nedenstående tabel viser bivirkningerne, som blev rapporteret under kliniske forsøg og efter

markedsføringen. Frekvenserne er meget almindelig (≥1/10), almindelig (≥ 1/100, <1/10),

4.9

Overdosering

Der er ikke set tilfælde af overdosering i de kliniske forsøg med alprostadil. Hvis der sker

intrakavernøs overdosering med Caverject Dual Chamber bør patienten observeres af en læge

indtil eventuelle systemiske virkninger er aftaget og/eller penil detumescens er indtruffet.

Eventuelle systemiske symptomer kan behandles symptomatisk.

Behandlingen af priapisme (forlænget erektion) bør ikke udsættes mere end 6 timer. Initial

behandling bør være penil aspiration. Indfør ved aseptisk teknik en 19-21 G butterflynål i

corpus cavernosum og aspirer 20-50 ml blod. Dette kan få penis til at falde. Proceduren kan

om nødvendigt gentages på den modsatte side af penis til en totalmængde blod på 100 ml er

aspireret. Hvis dette er uden virkning anbefales intrakavernøs injektion af alfa-adrenerg

medicin. Selvom den sædvanlige kontraindikation ved intrapenil administration af en vaso-

konstriktor ikke gælder for behandling af priapisme, bør der udvises forsigtighed, hvis denne

udvej vælges. Blodtryk og puls bør måles kontinuerligt under denne procedure. Der skal

udvises stor forsigtighed hos patienter med koronar hjertesygdom, ukontrolleret hypertension,

cerebral iskæmi, og hos personer i behandling med monoaminooxidasehæmmere. I sidst-

nævnte tilfælde bør der være faciliteter til stede til behandling af en eventuel hypertensiv

krise. Der bør forberedes en 200 µg/ml opløsning af noradrenalin og 0,5-1,0 ml af opløs-

ningen injiceres hvert 5.-10. minut. Alternativt kan en 20 µg/ml adrenalinopløsning anvendes.

Om nødvendigt kan dette følges af yderligere aspiration af blod gennem den samme

butterflynål. Maksimal dosis er noradrenalin 1 mg eller adrenalin 100 µg (5 ml opløsning).

Som alternativ kan metaraminol anvendes, men det bør understreges, at der er rapporteret

fatale hypertensive kriser. Hvis dette heller ikke virker mod priapismen, er det nødvendigt

med hastehenvisning til kirurg til yderligere behandling, hvilket kan omfatte en

shuntprocedure.

FARMAKOLOGISKE OPLYSNINGER

5.0

Terapeutisk klassifikation

G 04 BE 01

Lægemidler til erektil dysfunktion.

5.1

Farmakodynamiske egenskaber

Alprostadil er den naturligt forekommende form af prostagladin E

(PGE

). Alprostadil har

en lang række farmakologiske virkninger, hvoraf vasodilatation og hæmning af trombocyt-

aggregation er de mest markante. Hos de fleste dyrearter afslapper alprostadil retractor

penis-musklen og corpus cavernosum urethrae in vitro. Alprostadil afslapper også human

corpus cavernosum og spongiosum in vitro såvel som kavernøse arterielle dele kontraheret

af enten noradrenalin eller PGF

in vitro. Hos svinehale aber (Macaca nemestrina) øger

alprostadil den kavernøse arterielle blodcirkulation in vivo. Graden og varigheden af

afslappelse af den kavernøse glatte muskulatur er dosisafhængig hos denne dyreart.

Alprostadil forårsager erektion ved afslapning af trabekulær glat muskulatur og ved

dilatation af kavernøse arterier. Dette fører til ekspansion af lakunære rum og afklemning

af blod ved kompression af venolerne mod tunica albuginea, en proces kaldet corporal

60195_spc.doc

Side 8 af 11

veno-okklusiv mekanisme. Erektion forekommer sædvanligvis 5-15 minutter efter

injektion. Varigheden er dosisafhængig.

5.2.

Farmakokinetiske egenskaber

Caverject Dual Chamber indeholder alprostadil som den aktive substans i et kompleks med

alfadex. Ved rekonstitution dissocieres komplekset straks til alprostadil og alfadex.

Alprostradils farmakokinetik er derfor uændret i Caverject Dual Chamber sammenlignet med

Caverject pulver til injektionsvæske.

Absorption: Ved behandling af erektil dysfunktion administreres alprostadil ved injektion i

corpora cavernosa.

Distribution: Ca. 5 minutter efter intrakavernøs injektion af 20 µg alprostadil er de gennem-

snitlige plasmakoncentrationer øget 22 gange i forhold til baseline-niveauer af endogen

alprostadil. Alprostadilkoncentrationen falder til endogent niveau indenfor 2 timer efter

injektion. Alprostadil bindes primært til albumin i plasma (81%) og i mindre grad til

globulin IV-4 fraktion (55%). Der sker ingen signifikant binding til erytrocytter eller

leukocytter.

Metabolisme: Alprostadil omdannes hurtigt til forbindelser, der metaboliseres yderligere

før udskillelse. Efter intravenøs administration metaboliseres ca. 80% alprostadil ved første

passage gennem lungerne, primært ved beta- og omega-oxidation. Alprostadil metaboli-

seres således meget hurtigt i den systemiske cirkulation efter intrakavernøs injektion.

Hovedmetabolitterne er 15-keto-PGE

, 15-keto-13,14-dihydro-PGE

og 13,14-dihydro-

. I modsætning til 15-keto-PGE

og 15-keto-13,14-dihydro-PGE

, som næsten

mangler biologisk aktivitet, er det vist, at 13,14-dihydro-PGE

sænker blodtrykket og

hæmmer trombocytaggregationen. 10 minutter efter injektion øges plasmakoncentrationen

af hovedmetabolitten (15-keto-13,14-dihydro-PGE

) 34 gange i forhold til baseline-

niveauer af endogen alprostadil og falder til baseline-niveauer 2 timer efter injektionen.

Plasmakoncentrationer af 13,14-dihydro-PGE

øges 7 gange 20 minutter efter injektion.

Elimination: Alprostadils metabolitter udskilles primært via nyrerne. Næsten 90% af

intravenøs indgivet dosis udskilles via urinen indenfor 24 timer. Resten udskilles i fæces.

Der er ikke tegn på, at alprostadil eller dets metabolitter tilbageholdes i vævet efter

intravenøs administration. Hos raske frivillige forsøgspersoner omdannes 70-90% af den

indgivne dosis ved førstegangspassage i lungerne. Den metaboliske halveringstid er

således mindre end 1 minut.

Farmakokinetik i subpopulationer

Virkning af nedsat nyre- eller leverfunktion: Førstegangspassage i lungerne er den primære

faktor, der påvirker alprostadils systemiske clearance. Selvom alprostadils farmakokinetik

ikke er blevet formelt undersøgt hos patienter med nyre- eller leverinsufficiens, burde

ændringer i nyre- eller leverfunktionen ikke have den store virkning på alprostadils farmako-

kinetik.

5.3

Prækliniske sikkerhedsdata

Prækliniske virkninger ses kun ved eksponeringer, der ligger tilstrækkeligt over den

maksimale humane eksponering. Dette tyder på ringe betydning ved klinisk brug.

Subkutane alprostadildoser på op til 0,2 mg/kg/dag havde ingen uønsket effekt på

reproduktionsfunktionen hos hanrotter.

Brugsanvisning

For at rekonstituere opløsningen, sættes nålen på engangssprøjten ved at presse nålen fast på

enden af sprøjten og dreje med uret indtil den stopper. Fjern den ydre beskyttelseshætte på

nålen. Drej stemplet med uret indtil det stopper for at opløse pulveret. Vend engangssprøjten

2 gange for at sikre, at opløsningen er ensartet blandet. Opløsningen skal være klar. Fjern

forsigtigt den indre beskyttelseshætte fra nålen. Hold engangssprøjten opad og tryk stemplet

så langt ind, som det kan komme. Der vil komme nogle få dråber fra nålespidsen. Drej enden

af stemplet med uret for at vælge den ønskede dosis.

Indlægssedlen giver fyldestgørende instruktioner vedrørende rekonstitution, rengøring af

injektionsstedet og også om, hvordan injektionen gives.

Scientific guideline:  Draft guideline on the use of minimal residual disease as a clinical endpoint in multiple myeloma studies, draft: consultation open

Scientific guideline: Draft guideline on the use of minimal residual disease as a clinical endpoint in multiple myeloma studies, draft: consultation open

The guideline aims to address the use of undetectable minimal residual disease (MRD) as an intermediate efficacy endpoint in controlled randomised clinical studies in patients with multiple myeloma (MM), adequately designed to demonstrate efficacy by relevant hard endpoints. MRD as an endpoint in this context would allow earlier approval of new drugs pending final confirmatory data.
