Subcutaneous (SC)

SC administration of Remodulin

With SC administration, Remodulin is delivered continuously using a very thin, short, flexible tube called a cannula. This tube is not much thicker than a thread and is inserted just beneath the skin. No surgery is necessary for SC administration and you may even be able to start treatment in your home.

SC Remodulin is administered using a pump option called the CADD-MS® 3. The CADD-MS 3 has been used for more than 10 years for Remodulin. Remunity, a new pump for SC administration, has been approved and will be available later this year. Learn more here.

Benefits of SC Remodulin:

  • Small, discreet pump options (smaller than IV pumps)
  • Unlike IV administration, there is no surgery needed to start therapy and no need to mix medication
  • Less risk of bloodstream infections compared to IV administration
  • Most SC pumps need to be refilled every 2 to 3 days

SC infusion is the preferred route of administration for Remodulin. Remodulin IV infusion is reserved for patients for whom the SC route is not appropriate.

Your doctor can provide more information on the potential benefits and risks of SC Remodulin.

IV=intravenous.

Infusion site pain and reactions with SC pump therapy

For patients on SC Remodulin, it is common to experience infusion site pain and infusion site reactions. In a clinical trial, about 7% of patients discontinued treatment due to the infusion site pain or reactions.
