Getting your SYLVANT infusion
Before administering SYLVANT® (siltuximab), your doctor will perform blood tests to check that your body is ready to receive treatment. The tests are performed prior to every infusion for the first 12 months, and then every 3 dosing cycles thereafter.
What to expect
SYLVANT is an infusion treatment administered at a hospital, infusion center, or home by a trained healthcare professional.
Make comfort a priority: wear loose-fitting clothing and layers in case you get too warm or too cold.
Bring a book, laptop, tablet, or any other digital device to help pass the time.
The infusion is given over 1 hour, every 3 weeks.
After your first infusion, try not to make any other commitments for the rest of the day, as you won’t know how your body will react to the infusion.
Treatment with SYLVANT should be continued until disease progression.
When I received my iMCD diagnosis, I was relieved because I knew I was going to receive the proper treatment…and that made me hopeful for the future.
