Clinical Study Experience
Serious adverse reactions were not observed in the AdreView (iobenguane i 123 injection for intravenous use) clinical study. The data described below reflect AdreView (iobenguane i 123 injection for intravenous use) exposure to 251 patients with known or suspected pheochromocytoma or neuroblastoma. The average ages were 49 years (range 17 – 88 years) for adults and, for pediatric patients, 4 years (range 1 month - 16 years). Slightly less than half the patients were male. All patients were monitored for adverse reactions over a 24 hour period following AdreView (iobenguane i 123 injection for intravenous use) administration.
Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.
Adverse reactions were all mild to moderate in severity and were predominantly isolated occurrences ( ≤ 2 patients) of one of the following reactions: dizziness, rash, pruritus, flushing or injection site hemorrhage.
Because postmarketing reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.
Hypersensitivity reactions have uncommonly been reported during the postmarketing use of AdreView [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
