Hydroxychinolinkaliumsulfat 100 mg

Polysorbat 80 50 mg

Wasser für Injektionszwecke q.s.p. 1 ml

Galenische Form und Wirkstoffmenge pro Einheit

Tuberkulin PPD (Purified Protein Derivative) RT 23 SSI ist eine klare gebrauchsfertige Lösung von

PPD ausgewählter Stämme von Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Tuberkulin PPD RT 23 SSI wird in

Mehrdosenbehältern (ca. 10 Dosen pro Behälter) in der Konzentration 2 Tuberkulineinheiten (TE)

hergestellt. 1 ml Tuberkulin-Lösung enthält 50 mg Polysorbat 80 (Tween 80) als Stabilisator, 100 mg

Konservierungsmittel (Hydroxychinolinkaliumsulfat (Chinosol)), Kochsalz und Phosphatpuffer.

Indikationen/Anwendungsmöglichkeiten

Zu Diagnosezwecken: Der Mantoux-Test mit Tuberkulin PPD RT 23 SSI ist ein anerkanntes

Hilfsmittel zur Bestimmung, ob eine Person jemals mit Mycobacterium tuberculosis infiziert wurde.

Dosierung/Anwendung

0,1ml intradermal

Der Hauttest hat anhand der Mantoux-Methode zu erfolgen. Wird der Test zu medizinisch-

diagnostischen Zwecken eingesetzt, empfiehlt sich die Verwendung von 0,1 ml Tuberkulin PPD RT

23 SSI zu 2 TE. Die Dosis beträgt 0,1 ml der Lösung PPD RT 23. Die intradermale Injektion ist am

mittleren Drittel des Unterarms vorzunehmen, da die Reaktion in Richtung Handgelenk und Ellbogen

abnimmt. Für jede Injektion ist eine neue Spritze zu verwenden.

Zur Verabreichung des Produkts empfiehlt sich die Verwendung einer Spritze mit 1 ml-Skala (0,5 x

10 mm) und einer leicht abgeschrägten Nadel (25-26 Gauge). Es ist etwas mehr als 0,1 ml der

Tuberkulin-Lösung aufzuziehen. Die überschüssige Menge sowie Luftblasen sind auszustossen, so

dass die Spritze exakt 0,1 ml der Lösung enthält. Die Injektion wird folgendermassen vorgenommen:

Haut leicht spreizen und Nadelspitze (abgeschrägte Fläche nach oben) in die obere Hautschicht

einstechen. Anschliessend die gesamte Dosis von 0,1 ml langsam injizieren. Die Injektion muss

unbedingt in die oberste Hautschicht erfolgen: Bei einer zu tiefen Injektion der Tuberkulin-PPD-

Lösung ist die Reaktion schwierig zu beurteilen. Wird die Injektion korrekt vorgenommen, bildet

sich unmittelbar danach eine kleine Erhöhung oder eine Quaddel von 8-10 mm Durchmesser, die

während rund 10 Minuten sichtbar bleibt. Bildet sich keine Erhebung, ist die Lösung möglicherweise

zu tief gespritzt worden, und der Hauttest sollte im Abstand von 4 oder mehr Zentimetern von der

ersten Injektionsstelle wiederholt werden.

Auswertung und Interpretation des Mantoux-Tests

Bei einer positiven Reaktion tritt 48-72 Stunden nach der Injektion eine Induration auf, die von einer

Rötung umgeben sein kann. Zu messen ist nur die Induration und dies etwa 3 Tage nach der

Verabreichung von Tuberkulin PPD RT 23 SSI. Die Hautreaktion kann als flache, unregelmässige

und leicht erhabene Induration ertastet werden, die mit Hilfe eines transparenten, biegsamen

Massstabs zu messen ist.

Eine positive Tuberkulin PPD RT 23 SSI Reaktion ist definiert als Induration mit einem

Durchmesser von über 6 mm.

ABLESEN DES MANTOUX-

TESTS

Durchmesser der Induration in

negativ positiv

stark positiv

0-5 mm 6-14 mm ≥15 mm

In Ländern, in denen die BCG-Impfung praktiziert wird, kann der Grenzwert für eine positive

Reaktion höher angesetzt werden.

Bei Patienten mit einem Immundefizit kann die Reaktion in bestimmten Fällen auch bei einer

Induration von unter 6 mm Durchmesser als positiv eingestuft werden.

Kontraindikationen

Überempfindlichkeitsreaktionen nach einem früheren Hauttest mit den Produkten Sensitin PPD oder

Tuberkulin PPD schliessen eine weitere Verwendung dieser Produkte aus.

Warnhinweise und Vorsichtsmassnahmen

Bei Personen, bei denen bei einem früheren Test mit den Produkten Tuberkulin PPD oder Sensitin

PPD schwere Hautreaktion aufgetreten sind, ist äusserste Vorsicht geboten.

Für jede Injektion eine neue Spritze verwenden. Angebrochene Behälter am gleichen Tag

aufbrauchen; bis zur Verwendung verschlossen bei +2° - +8°C aufbewahren und allfällige Reste

verwerfen.

Interaktionen

Impfungen mit Lebendimpfstoffen (zum Beispiel MMR-Impfung gegen Masern, Mumps und Röteln)

oder Virusinfektionen, wie Masern, HIV oder Grippe, können die Tuberkulinreaktion vorübergehend

abschwächen. Andere Erkrankungen, einschliesslich Krebs und Sarkoidose, können die Sensitivität

gegenüber Tuberkulin herabsetzen. Bei unterernährten oder immundefizienten Patienten kann die

Reaktion auf Tuberkulin PPD RT 23 SSI schwächer ausfallen als erwartet.

Personen mit aktiver Tuberkulose, deren Immunsystem durch die Turberkuloseinfektion schwer

geschwächt ist, können eine Reaktion von unter 6 mm zeigen.

Bei manchen Personen kann der Mantoux-Test positiv ausfallen, obwohl sie keine

Tuberkuloseinfektion haben oder hatten. Dies kann auf eine frühere BCG-Impfung oder Infektion

mit einem Nicht-Tuberkel-Mycobacterium, das offensichtlich keine Erkrankung ausgelöst hat,

zurückzuführen sein.

Schwangerschaft, Stillzeit

Der Tuberkulin-Test PPD RT 23 SSI kann während Schwangerschaft und Stillzeit durchgeführt

werden.

Wirkung auf die Fahrtüchtigkeit und auf das Bedienen von Maschinen

Nicht zutreffend.

Unerwünschte Wirkungen

Unmittelbar nach der Injektion können selten Schmerzen, Reizungen oder Unbehagen an der

Einstichstelle auftreten, die jedoch nach kurzer Zeit abklingen. Bei Personen, die auf Tuberkulin

extrem empfindlich reagieren, können an der Einstichstelle Bläschen oder Nekrosen auftreten. Es ist

auch über leicht erhöhte Temperatur oder Lymphknotenschwellungen berichtet worden.

Überdosierung

Nicht zutreffend.
