Why is this medication prescribed?

Beremagene geperpavec-svdt is used to treat certain adults and children 6 months of age or older who have dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (an inherited disorder that causes the skin to be fragile leading to blisters, wounds, skin infections, and scarring). Beremagene geperpavec-svdt is in a class of medications called gene therapy. It works by replacing a gene that promotes wound healing by strengthening and stabilizing the skin.

How should this medicine be used?

Beremagene geperpavec-svdt is supplied as a gel that a medical practitioner can apply to their skin at home or at a clinic. Usually, it is given directly to wounds once every seven days. Up until the wound heals fully, treatment is administered.

Your doctor might not be able to treat every wound during a single visit. Depending on the severity of your wounds, your doctor will select which ones to treat and most likely develop a plan for treating them in order of priority. It’s critical to keep treating any wound(s) every week until they heal fully. Your doctor will most likely treat more wounds once the first one has fully healed.

Do not come into touch with bandages, dressings, or treated wounds for approximately 24 hours following beremagene geperpavec-svdt treatment. Bandages, dressings, and treated wounds should not be handled or scratched. Wash the afflicted area thoroughly with water if contact occurs.

How to change your wound dressings will be explained by your doctor to you or a caregiver. As you change a wound dressing, wash your hands and put on safety gloves. You will be instructed by your physician to discard discarded wound dressings and gloves. Pay close attention to these instructions. If you have any concerns about getting rid of wound dressings, speak with your physician or pharmacist.

Request a copy of the patient’s manufacturer’s information from your pharmacist or physician.
