Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is a cancer of the blood in which a particular kind of white blood cell is growing out of control.

Blincyto is given around the clock (continuous) using an infusion pump. A healthcare provider will give you this injection. The medicine enters the body through a catheter placed into a vein.

You may receive your first dose of Blincyto in a hospital or clinic setting to quickly treat any serious side effects. You may also need to be in a hospital if you start using the medicine again after not using it for a short time.

Your injections will be prepared at the pharmacy and you will receive the medicine in IV bags. Keep the IV bags in their original package and do not open the package. Store it in the refrigerator, protected from light. Do not freeze. Each IV bag will be unpackaged and prepared by a healthcare provider.

Read and carefully follow any Instructions for Use provided with your medicine. Do not use Blincyto if you don’t understand all instructions for proper use. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions.

Blincyto is usually given around the clock. Your doctor will determine how often you need to use this medicine, and for how long.

Do not change the settings on your infusion pump without the assistance of a healthcare professional.

You may be given medication to prevent certain side effects while you are receiving Blincyto.

When it is time to change IV bags, call your doctor or pharmacist if you do not have a new IV bag ready to attach to the infusion pump.

Be sure to keep the skin clean around your catheter (IV) to reduce the risk of infection.

Blincyto can increase your risk of bleeding or infection by changing the way your immune system works. You will need frequent medical tests. Your cancer treatments may be delayed based on the results.
