EXPERIENCE. CONSISTENCY. SUPPORT.

For more than 18 years, Remodulin patients and the healthcare professionals who care for them have been supported by United Therapeutics, a company dedicated to helping patients live with PAH. This trust and commitment are a part of why Remodulin is the #1 prescribed branded parenteral therapy for PAH.1,2

Remodulin has bioequivalent SC and IV administration options

Continuous subcutaneous infusion is the preferred administration method for Remodulin. Use IV infusion if subcutaneous infusion is not tolerated.2

SC Remodulin:

Patients can start SC Remodulin at home

No infusion-related bloodstream infections* reported in SC Remodulin clinical trials2

No mixing or reconstitution required2

Up to 3 days between refills4

*To reduce the risk of infection, aseptic technique must be used in the preparation and administration of Remodulin.

IV Remodulin:

Patients usually start treatment in the hospital4

No infusion site pain or infusion site reactions as commonly reported with SC administration5

Up to 2 days between pump refills6

Options available for mixing, including at-home premixing and the SPmix Program

Why Remodulin?

Appropriate patients on IV Remodulin can participate in the SPmix Program, saving them time by not having to mix on their own.

SC and IV Remodulin: Bioavailable within minutes, bioequivalent in less than 6 hours2,7

Remodulin has bioequivalent SC and IV administration options

Remodulin pharmacokinetics were analyzed in 51 healthy volunteers receiving IV or SC Remodulin at a dose of 10 ng/kg/min for 72 hours. Following a 4-day washout, volunteers were given the opposite route of their initial administration. Pharmacokinetics were then compared between IV and SC administration.7

Remodulin has a 4-hour half-life and can be delivered via SC or IV routes over 24 hours for patients who need continuous prostacyclin therapy.2

Identifying appropriate Remodulin patients

NYHA FC II-IV patients: Remodulin is indicated for FC II-IV patients2

High-risk and progressing patients: Remodulin is appropriate for high-risk and progressing patients who need quick intervention4,8

Patients transitioning from Flolan® (epoprostenol sodium): Flolan patients may benefit from transitioning to Remodulin because of the longer 4-hour half-life, reducing the risk of rebound pulmonary hypertension following hemodynamic compromise2,4

The power of Remodulin

With an established clinical profile, Remodulin has been demonstrated to diminish symptoms associated with exercise and, for patients requiring transition from Flolan, slow the rate of clinical deterioration.2

Median change of +10 meters in 6MWD at week 122,12

In two 12-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials, SC Remodulin infusion was compared to placebo in a total of 470 patients. The primary endpoint of these trials was the median change in 6MWD at week 12.2,12

  • Median change in the Remodulin group: +10 meters
  • Median change in the placebo group: 0 meters
  • Mean Remodulin dose: 9.3 ng/kg/min at 12 weeks
  • The most common adverse reactions: infusion site pain and reaction, headache, diarrhea, rash, nausea, jaw pain, vasodilatation, dizziness, edema, and hypotension

Indication

Remodulin is a prostacyclin vasodilator indicated for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH; WHO Group 1) to diminish symptoms associated with exercise. Studies establishing effectiveness included patients with NYHA Functional Class II-IV symptoms and etiologies of idiopathic or heritable PAH (58%), PAH associated with congenital systemic-to-pulmonary shunts (23%), or PAH associated with connective tissue diseases (19%).

In patients with PAH requiring transition from epoprostenol, Remodulin is indicated to diminish the rate of clinical deterioration. Consider the risks and benefits of each drug prior to transition.
