PREVNAR 20™ Drug Interactions (pneumococcal 20-valent conjugate vaccine)

7 DRUG INTERACTIONS

7.1 Prior Vaccination with PNEUMOVAX 23

Receipt of PPSV23 1 to 5 years prior to Prevnar 20 resulted in diminished OPA geometric mean titers (GMTs) to Prevnar 20 compared to OPA GMTs in recipients who received Prevnar 13 at least 6 months previously, and compared to OPA GMTs in recipients who received Prevnar 13 followed by PPSV23, with the last dose of PPSV23 given at least 1 year prior to Prevnar 20 [see Clinical Studies (14.2)].

7.2 Immunosuppressive Therapies

Individuals with impaired immune responsiveness due to the use of immunosuppressive therapy (including irradiation, corticosteroids, antimetabolites, alkylating agents, and cytotoxic agents) may not respond optimally to Prevnar 20.
