FDA Approves Grifols Biological's Albutein
Treating a variety of conditions, including shock due to blood loss in the body, burns, low protein levels due to surgery or liver failure, and as an additional medicine in bypass surgery.
It may be used for certain conditions as determined by your doctor.
Albutein is a concentrate of plasma proteins from human blood. It works by increasing plasma volume or serum albumin levels.
Albumin (Human) U.S.P., Albutein® 5% Solution is indicated:
For treatment of hypovolemic shock.
In conditions in which there is severe hypoalbuminemia. However, unless the pathologic condition responsible for the hypoalbuminemia can be corrected, administration of albumin can afford only symptomatic or supportive relief.
As an adjunct in hemodialysis and in cardiopulmonary bypass procedures.
In those conditions in which the colloid requirement is high and there is less need for fluid, albumin should be administered as a 25% solution.
