~1 million patients have received Neulasta® Onpro®

Only Neulasta® Onpro® reduces the risk of febrile neutropenia without having to go back to the doctor's office*

Some patients find it hard to return to their physician the next day to receive Neulasta®, and missing a dose of Neulasta® can increase the risk of febrile neutropenia. With Onpro®, patients can receive Neulasta® at home so they don't have to go back to the doctor on the day after chemo. Staying at home can also reduce the risk of coming into contact with viral infections.

Neulasta® Onpro® may be able to help
with these common challenges

For many patients, there’s no place like home the day after chemo. There’s no reason to make trips back to the doctor if you can stay at home instead. Ask your doctor if Neulasta® Onpro® is right for you.

Neulasta® Onpro® may be right for you if you are an adult, are comfortable with the patient instructions for use, and have no allergies to acrylics.

* If, for any reason, you believe you did not receive your full dose of Neulasta® or that your on-body injector is not working correctly, immediately contact your healthcare provider, as an incomplete dose could increase infection risk.

How the Neulasta® Onpro®
on-body injector works

Right after your strong chemo treatment, your healthcare provider will apply the on-body injector to your skin. The on-body injector is designed to automatically deliver your Neulasta® dose over 45 minutes, approximately 27 hours after application. Once your dose is complete, remove the injector and dispose of it according to the Patient Instructions for Use.

The summary does not replace the Patient Instructions for Use. If you are using Neulasta® Onpro®, it’s
important that you review the patient instructions and call your doctor if you have any questions.
