Caution For Usage
Incompatibilities: This medicinal product must not be mixed or diluted with other medicinal products except those mentioned in the following text.
Do not dilute with dextrose or glucose solutions.
Special precautions for disposal and othe handling:
150 mg presentation: Appropriate aseptic technique should be used. Each 150 mg vial of TRAZIMERA is reconstituted with 7.2 mL of SWFI (not supplied). Use of other reconstitution solvents should be avoided.
This yields a 7.4 mL solution for single-dose use, containing approximately 21 mg/mL trastuzumab, at a pH of approximately 6.0. A volume overfill of 4% ensures that the labelled dose of 150 mg can be withdrawn from each vial.
TRAZIMERA should be carefully handled during reconstitution. Causing excessive foaming during reconstitution or shaking the reconstituted solution may result in problems with the amount of TRAZIMERA that can be withdrawn from the vial.
The reconstituted solution should not be frozen.
Instructions for reconstitution: 1) Using a sterile syringe, slowly inject 7.2 mL of SWFI in the vial containing the lyophilised trastuzumab.
2) Swirl the vial gently to aid reconstitution. DO NOT SHAKE.
Slight foaming of the product upon reconstitution is not unusual. Allow the vial to stand undisturbed for approximately 5 minutes. The reconstituted trastuzumab results in a clear to slightly opalescent and colourless to pale yellow-brown solution and should be essentially free of visible particulates.
After reconstitution with SWFI, the reconstituted solution is physicochemically stable for 48 hours at 2°C-8°C, however, from a microbiological point of view, the product should be used immediately. Any remaining reconstituted solution should be discarded.
Determine the volume of the solution required: See Equations 1 & 2.

The appropriate amount of solution should be withdrawn from the vial and added to an infusion bag containing 250 mL of 0.9% sodium chloride solution. Do not use with dextrose- or glucose-containing solutions (see Incompatibilities in the previous text). The bag should be gently inverted to mix the solution in order to avoid foaming.
No incompatibilities between TRAZIMERA and polyvinylchloride, polyethylene, polypropylene, or ethylene vinyl acetate bags or glass IV bottles have been observed.
Solutions for intravenous infusion are physicochemically stable in polyvinylchloride, polyethylene, polypropylene, or ethylene vinyl acetate bags or glass IV bottles containing sodium chloride 9 mg/mL (0.9%) solution for injection for 24 hours at temperatures not exceeding 30°C.
From a microbiological point of view, the reconstituted solution and infusion solution should be used immediately. The product is not intended to be stored after reconstitution and dilution unless this has taken place under controlled and validated aseptic conditions. If not used immediately, in-use storage times and conditions are the responsibility of the user.
Parenteral medicinal products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration.
TRAZIMERA is for single-use only, as the product contains no preservatives. Any unused medicinal product or waste material should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
440 mg presentation: Appropriate aseptic technique should be used. Each 440 mg vial of TRAZIMERA is reconstituted with 20 mL of bacteriostatic water for injection (BWFI), containing 1.1% benzyl alcohol as a preservative (supplied). This yields a multi-dose solution containing 21 mg/mL trastuzumab, at a pH of approximately 6.0.
In patients with known hypersensitivity to benzyl alcohol, reconstitute with 20 mL of Sterile Water for Injection (SWFI) without preservative (not supplied) to yield a single use solution.
TRAZIMERA should be carefully handled during reconstitution. Causing excessive foaming during reconstitution or shaking the reconstituted solution may result in problems with the amount of TRAZIMERA that can be withdrawn from the vial.
The reconstituted solution should not be frozen.
Instructions for reconstitution: 1. Using a sterile syringe, slowly inject the 20 mL of diluent into the vial containing the lyophilized TRAZIMERA.
2. Swirl the vial gently to aid reconstitution. DO NOT SHAKE.
Slight foaming of the product upon reconstitution is not unusual. Allow the vial to stand undisturbed for approximately 5 minutes. The reconstituted trastuzumab results in a clear to slightly opalescent and colourless to pale yellow-brown solution and should be essentially free of visible particulates.
Store reconstituted TRAZIMERA at 2°C-8°C.
If TRAZIMERA is reconstituted with BWFI, discard unused TRAZIMERA after 28 days.
If TRAZIMERA is reconstituted with SWFI without preservative, the reconstituted solution is physicochemically stable for 48 hours at 2°C-8°C. However, from a microbiological point of view, the product should be used immediately. Any remaining reconstituted solution should be discarded.
Determine the volume of the solution required: See Equations 3 and 4.
