Plasma center personnel requested NMDOH assistance in arranging possible hospital admission for VIGIV treatment.
On the basis of the patient interview and review of photos of the transferred lesions, neither hospitalization nor treatment with VIGIV was recommended.
Thirteen years after VTGIV was first delivered to the SNS, VIGIV still remains a critical medical countermeasure in the government's preparedness efforts," said Adam Havey, executive vice president and president, biodefense division, Emergent BioSolutions.
The scope of the contract, originally awarded to Cangene Corporation, which Emergent acquired in February 2014, was to maintain the ability to manufacture licensed VIGIV, with annual options to conduct additional services to support licensure maintenance activities for the product and to allow for additional manufacturing and plasma collections.
The Food and Drug Administration approved VIGIV with the condition that postmarketing studies be conducted, including assessing clinical benefits, such as increased survival in patients with progressive vaccinia and eczema vaccinatum.
VIGIV was requested from CDC and administered intravenously on June 25 because of concerns about the location and extent of lesions and the potential for further spread.
In light of the number, location, and extent of lesions and the recently recalled history of eczema, CDC released VIGIV for the patient with tertiary infection, and he was admitted to the hospital.
The patient subsequently developed vaccinia virus infection and was treated with human vaccinia immune globulin intravenous (VIGIV) and an investigational antiviral agent.
Within 24 hours of confirmation of PV on March 4, the patient received licensed Vaccinia Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human) (VIGIV) (Cangene Corporation, Winnipeg, Canada).
The initial treatment included Vaccinia Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human) (VIGIV); supportive care included sedation, intubation, and mechanical ventilation.
