Take control of your HAE attacks with BERINERT self-administration

BERINERT is an intravenous (IV) injection that, with training, you can infuse on your own or with the help of a caregiver at the first sign of an HAE attack. Learning how to self-administer BERINERT can give you or your caregiver the confidence to treat attacks wherever life takes you.

Treat HAE attacks at the first sign

On-demand therapy that you can self-administer gives you the power to react quickly to the first signs of an HAE attack, wherever you happen to be. The sooner you treat with BERINERT, the faster you will experience relief. Treating quickly is especially important if you experience a laryngeal attack, as it can be life threatening.

BERINERT is the only on-demand C1-INH approved for self-administration to treat acute abdominal, facial, or laryngeal attacks of HAE in adults and children.

IV infusion helps BERINERT work fast

IV infusion of BERINERT delivers the active ingredient—C1-INH—directly into your bloodstream so it can go to work fast, restoring your body’s ability to stop the swelling.

Following setup, BERINERT takes about 7 to 8 minutes* to self-administer for an average-sized adult.

*Based on an infusion rate of 4 mL per minute.

Dosing individualized for you

Your BERINERT dose is calculated by weight. That means you get an individualized amount of medicine—for your body.

And because BERINERT is given on demand for acute attacks, you take it only when you need it.

The recommended dose is 20 IU/kg body weight.

95% of BERINERT infusions are self-administered at home or in other non-healthcare settings

BERINERT is an IV infusion that you can learn to self-administer at home or anywhere that’s convenient. In fact, a study showed that 95% of BERINERT infusions were given outside of healthcare settings.

Vial and package

If you self-administer to treat a laryngeal attack

immediately seek medical attention afterward. If you self-administer for an abdominal attack, inform your physician so that other possible causes can be ruled out.

Self-administration training materials

Use these materials in combination with self-administration training from a healthcare provider. Never attempt to self-administer BERINERT unless you’ve been taught to do so by a healthcare provider.
