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.
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.
Exposure to viruses
People with a weakened immune
system may want to stay away
from those with a viral infection.
Struggle to get transportation
For some, getting a ride can be difficult.
Live far away
Driving is part of the
to an appointment.
One less trip back to
the doctor’s office
Neulasta® Onpro® was
designed so you can stay home* to get your dose.
Avoid the elements and
holidays & weekends
Chemo on a day before
next-day office closings.
* 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.
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.

use when using the Neulasta® Onpro® kit.
For a more secure fit, an adhesive extender that fits around the on-body injector called a PodPal™ may be added by your doctor or nurse if they deem it appropriate. You can also ask your doctor or nurse about adding a PodPal™ when they put your Onpro® on-body injector in place.
Only Neulasta® Onpro® is designed to automatically deliver Neulasta® the next day—so you don't have to leave your home to go back to the doctor's office.
Before your first round of chemo, ask your doctor if Neulasta® Onpro® can be part of your treatment plan.
