Description

Antithymocyte globulin (ATG) is a hyperimmune globulin preparation developed from the plasma of rabbits or horses that have been immunized with human thymocytes or T cells. This immunoglobulin G is used for renal allograft rejection and aplastic anemia (moderate to severe) in patients not suitable for bone marrow transplantation (BMT).

Limitations of Use: The usefulness of ATG has not been shown in patients with aplastic anemia who are suitable candidates for BMT or in patients with aplastic anemia secondary to neoplastic disease, storage disease, Fanconi’s syndrome, myelofibrosis, or in individuals known to have been exposed to myelotoxic agents or radiation.

Dosage and Side Effects

Renal Allograft Rejection: The recommended dose of ATG is 10 to 15 mg/kg daily intravenously for 14 days. Additional alternate-day therapy up to a total of 21 doses may be considered.

Aplastic Anemia (Moderate to Severe): The recommended dose of Antithymocyte Globulin is 10 to 20 mg/kg daily administered intravenously for 8-14 days. Additional alternate-day therapy up to a total of 21 doses may be considered.

The most common side effects of Antithymocyte Globulin (ATG) are pyrexia, rash, thrombocytopenia, chills, leukopenia, and arthralgia.

Warning and Precautions

  • Anaphylaxis may develop with the use of ATG. Anaphylaxis is life-threatening. Stop treatment if anaphylaxis occurs. Generalized rash, dyspnea, tachycardia, and hypotension can be signs of an anaphylactic reaction. Monitor patients for symptoms of anaphylaxis during infusion and for at least 24 hours following the infusion.

  • Cytokine release syndrome may occur with the use of Antithymocyte Globulin, which can be fatal. Clinical signs and symptoms may include headache, fever, chills, chest pain, hypotension, tachypnea, dyspnea, and edema. Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of cytokine release syndrome and manage them as per relevant clinical guidelines.

  • Critical infusion-related reactions may occur with the use of Antithymocyte Globulin 250 mg/5 mL injection. Clinical signs and symptoms associated with infusion-associated reactions include dyspnea, rash, tachycardia, and hypotension. Monitor patients for infusion-associated reactions and manage them as per relevant clinical guidelines.

  • Serum sickness is a resisted hypersensitivity or immune reaction. Signs and symptoms of serum sickness may include chills, rash, arthralgia, pyrexia, and pain. Monitor all the patients for serum sickness and manage them as per relevant clinical guidelines.

  • Because of the immunosuppressive effects of ATG/ATGAM, opportunistic infections (bacterial, viral, and fungal) may occur. Sepsis may also occur. There is a higher risk of viral reactivation (such as cytomegalovirus, Epstein–Barr virus infection, and herpes simplex virus). Monitor all the patients for concurrent infection. 

  • Thrombocytopenia and neutropenia may occur with the use of ATG or ATGAM injection. In case thrombocytopenia occurs, consider platelet transfusions in order to maintain platelets at required levels. Consider discontinuing treatment if serious and unremitting thrombocytopenia or neutropenia occurs.
