In this article, we will discuss Belimumab and Immunization. So, let’s get started.
Belimumab and Immunization
Live vaccines should not be given for 30 days before or concurrently with Belimumab as clinical safety has not been established. No data are available on the secondary transmission of infection from persons receiving live vaccines to patients receiving Belimumab or the effect of Belimumab on new immunizations. Because of its mechanism of action, Belimumab may interfere with the response to immunizations.
