How Is Belatacept Supplied?

If you have a kidney transplant, you may benefit from belatacept (NULOJIX®). This prescription medicine is approved for preventing the new organ from being rejected by the body. But how is belatacept supplied?
 
Belatacept is given as a slow injection into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, infusion). It comes as a powder that must be prepared into an IV before use. It is available in one strength: Belatacept 250 mg, in a single-use vial.
 
You will receive your first dose the day of your surgery, and then approximately every two to four weeks. A healthcare provider will administer your injection in a healthcare setting, such as a hospital or clinic. It will take approximately 30 minutes to administer each dose.
