HEAR FROM DR. HUZEFA BAHRAIN,
AN IDA HEALTHCARE PROVIDER
Dr. Bahrain explains why he uses Monoferric to treat his IDA patients.
I’m Dr. Huzefa Bahrain, welcome to Monoferric Moments.
I practice hematology and oncology in Baltimore. We operate an erythropoiesis center where we treat a wide variety of patients with various iron deficiency anemia etiologies. They can range from bariatric surgery patients to heart failure, to pregnancy.
Monoferric is an intravenous iron replacement therapy that can be given in just 1 single dose, delivering 1000 milligrams.
In my experience, we find that for most patients, just 1 dose of 1000 milligrams of Monoferric is sufficient to replace iron stores. If iron deficiency anemia reoccurs, a repeat dose would be necessary.
I use Monoferric in my practice because of its overall combination of 1-dose administration, efficacy, tolerability, and patient support services.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Monoferric is contraindicated in patients with a history of serious hypersensitivity to Monoferric or any of its components. Reactions have included shock, clinically significant hypotension, loss of consciousness, and/or collapse.
WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
Serious hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylactic-type reactions, some of which have been life-threatening and fatal, have been reported in patients receiving Monoferric. Patients may present with shock, clinically significant hypotension, loss of consciousness, and/or collapse. Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of hypersensitivity during and after Monoferric administration for at least 30 minutes and until clinically stable following completion of the infusion. Only administer Monoferric when personnel and therapies are immediately available for the treatment of serious hypersensitivity reactions. Monoferric is contraindicated in patients with prior serious hypersensitivity reactions to Monoferric or any of its components. In clinical trials in patients with IDA and CKD, serious or severe hypersensitivity were reported in 0.3% (6/2008) of the Monoferric treated subjects. These included 3 events of hypersensitivity in 3 patients; 2 events of infusion-related reactions in 2 patients and 1 event of asthma in one patient.
Excessive therapy with parenteral iron can lead to excess iron storage and possibly iatrogenic hemosiderosis or hemochromatosis. Monitor the hematologic response (hemoglobin and hematocrit) and iron parameters (serum ferritin and transferrin saturation) during parenteral iron therapy. Do not administer Monoferric to patients with iron overload.
Adverse reactions were reported in 8.6% (172/2008) of patients treated with Monoferric. Adverse reactions related to treatment and reported by ≥1% of the treated patients were nausea (1.2%) and rash (1%). Adjudicated serious or severe hypersensitivity reactions were reported in 6/2008 (0.3%) patients in the Monoferric group. Hypophosphatemia (serum phosphate <2.0 mg/dL) was reported in 3.5% of Monoferric-treated patients in Trials 1 & 2.
