Zenalb 20 is a solution containing the active substance called human albumin (a protein found naturally in your blood which is needed for many different functions). Human albumin is obtained from blood plasma from screened donors selected from the USA.
Zenalb 20 is used to replace the blood or body fluids that the patient have lost because of bleeding, surgery, or kidney dialysis (blood "cleaning" by a machine). It contains four times the amount of albumin as normal blood.
The product is given by injection into a vein (intravenous infusion) either undiluted or in a solution containing 5% glucose or 0.9% sodium chloride. It is only available on a physician's prescription.
This medicine is also suitable for premature babies and patients on kidney dialysis as it contains only very small quantities of aluminum.
