Aprotinin (Trasylol)


FDA and Bayer Pharmaceuticals notified healthcare professionals of revisions to the prescribing information for Trasylol. The new labeling has a more focused indication, a new Warning that Trasylol administration increases the risk of renal dysfunction and may increase the need for dialysis in the perioperative period, and stronger warnings about anaphylactic reactions. In addition, due to the higher risk for anaphylactic reactions, re-administration of Trasylol to patients with a known or suspected exposure during the past 12 months is contraindicated.
