What happens before I receive an ELAHERE infusion?

Before you start treatment

Your doctor will test a tissue sample to confirm your cancer is FRɑ positive to help determine if ELAHERE may be right for you. To do this, they can use tumor tissue stored from an earlier biopsy or surgery or take a new sample

Your doctor will also have you meet with an eye doctor before your first infusion and periodically throughout your treatment

Your doctor will prescribe steroid eye drops and lubricating eye drops for use before and during treatment with ELAHERE. You should use steroid and lubricating drops as directed by your doctor

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Taking ELAHERE with certain other medicines may cause side effects

Before each dose of ELAHERE, you will receive medicines to help prevent infusion-related reactions, nausea, and vomiting

  • Some of these medications may be taken orally and some may be given to you by infusion into your vein
  • Usually, these medications will be given on the same day as the infusion. However, your doctor may choose to give you the medications the day before you start ELAHERE

Before receiving ELAHERE, tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • Have vision or eye problems
  • Have numbness or tingling in your hands or feet
  • Have liver problems
  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. ELAHERE can harm your unborn baby. Tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant during treatment with ELAHERE
  • Are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if ELAHERE passes into your breast milk. Do not breastfeed during treatment and for 1 month after your last dose of ELAHERE

If you are able to become pregnant:

  • Your doctor should do a pregnancy test before you start treatment with ELAHERE
  • You should use an effective birth control (contraception) during treatment and for 7 months after your last dose of ELAHERE
