CINRYZE purification process1
CINRYZE is purified to reduce risk of viral transmission.
- CINRYZE is derived from natural human plasma collected from U.S. source donors prescreened to rule out infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1/HIV-2), hepatitis B virus, or hepatitis C virus
- CINRYZE is purified through a multistep process that includes pasteurization and nanofiltration to minimize a wide range of potential pathogens
Because CINRYZE is made from human blood, it may carry a risk of transmitting infectious agents, such as viruses and, theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) agent.
