17. PATIENT COUNSELING INFORMATION

Hepatotoxicity, Including Veno-occlusive Liver Disease (VOD)

Inform patients that liver problems, including severe, life-threatening, or fatal VOD may develop during MYLOTARG treatment. Prior to receiving MYLOTARG, inform patients who previously received, or will receive an HSCT that they may be at increased risk for developing VOD. Inform patients that the risk of developing VOD after an allogeneic HSCT is increased after receiving treatment with MYLOTARG. Inform patients that signs or symptoms of liver toxicity, including rapid weight gain, right upper quadrant pain and tenderness, hepatomegaly, and ascites should be monitored regularly during treatment, but these symptoms may not identify all patients at risk or prevent the complications of liver toxicity. Inform patients that liver problems may require dosing interruption or permanent discontinuation of MYLOTARG [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].

Hemorrhage

Inform patients that decreased platelet counts, which may be life-threatening, may develop during MYLOTARG treatment and that complications associated with decreased platelet counts may include bleeding/hemorrhage events, which may be life-threatening or fatal. Inform patients to report signs and symptoms of bleeding/hemorrhage during treatment with MYLOTARG. Inform patients that severe bleeding/hemorrhage may require dosing interruption or permanent discontinuation of MYLOTARG [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].

Infusion-Related Reactions

Advise patients to contact their health care provider if they experience signs and symptoms of infusion-related reactions, including symptoms such as fever, chills, rash, or breathing problems [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].

Embryo-Fetal Toxicity

Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to the fetus. Advise females of reproductive potential to inform their healthcare provider of a known or suspected pregnancy [see Warnings and Precautions (5.6), Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].

Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with MYLOTARG and for at least 6 months after the last dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.3)].

Advise males with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with MYLOTARG and for at least 3 months after the last dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.3)].

Lactation

Advise women not to breastfeed during treatment with MYLOTARG and for at least 1 month after the final dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.2)].
