ALBUMINEX is a High-Purity Albumin Product

ALBUMINEX 5% and ALBUMINEX 25% are purified from human plasma using a four-step process1-4:

Fractionation icon
(Cohn cold ethanol process)
Diafiltration icon
Anion exchange icon
Anion exchange
chromatography (DEAE Sepharose purification)
This chromatography “polishing” step reduces denatured impurities and increases the purity of ALBUMINEX 5% and ALBUMINEX 25% to

Important Safety Information

ALBUMINEX 5% and ALBUMINEX 25% are contraindicated in patients with:

Suspicion of allergic or anaphylactic reactions requires immediate discontinuation of the infusion and implementation of appropriate medical treatment.

Hypervolemia may occur if the dosage and rate of infusion are not adjusted to the patient’s volume status. At the first clinical signs of cardiovascular overload (headache, dyspnea, jugular venous distention, increased blood pressure), the infusion must be slowed or stopped immediately. Use albumin with caution in conditions where hypervolemia and its consequences or hemodilution could represent a special risk to the patient.

Colloid-osmotic effect of human albumin 25% is approximately five times that of blood plasma. Therefore, when concentrated albumin is administered, care must be taken to assure adequate hydration of the patient. Patients should be monitored carefully to guard against circulatory overload and hyperhydration.

Albumin is a derivative of human blood. Based on effective donor screening and product manufacturing processes, it carries an extremely remote risk for transmission of viral diseases. A theoretical risk for transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is also considered extremely remote. No cases of transmission of viral diseases or CJD have ever been identified for ALBUMINEX 5% or ALBUMINEX 25%.

The most common adverse reactions associated with infusion of human albumin solutions are rigors, hypotension/decreased BP, tachycardia/increased heart rate, pyrexia, feeling cold (chills), nausea, vomiting, dyspnea/bronchospasm, rash/pruritus. Reactions usually resolve when the infusion is slowed or stopped. Anaphylaxis, with or without shock, may occur and in this situation, stop the infusion.
