Why is this medication prescribed?

Ublituximab-xiiy injection is used to treat adults with various forms of multiple sclerosis (MS; a disease in which the nerves do not function properly and people may experience weakness, numbness, loss of muscle coordination, and problems with vision, speech, and bladder control), including :

  • Clinically isolated syndrome (first episode of neurologic symptoms)
  • Relapsing-remitting forms (course of disease where symptoms flare up from time to time)
  • Secondary progressive forms (course of disease where relapses occur more often).

Ublituximab-xiiy injection is in a class of medications called monoclonal antibodies. It works by decreasing the action of immune cells that may cause nerve damage.

How should this medicine be used?

The injection known as ubituximab-xiiy is administered intravenously (into a vein) by a physician or nurse at a hospital or doctor’s office. It is a solution (liquid). The initial infusion takes place over four hours, and then two weeks later, a second infusion takes place over an hour. After that, the subsequent infusions take place over an hour every twenty-four weeks. The first hour following your infusion, your doctor will keep an eye on you. Injections of ubituximab-xiiy assist manage multiple sclerosis, but they do not treat the disease.
