Does Anyone Need to Avoid Azficel-T?

Who Should Not Use Azficel-T?

You should not use azficel-T if you:
 
  • Are allergic to it, LaViv, or any of the inactive components used to make the product. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist has a list of the inactive ingredients.
  •  
  • Are allergic to gentamicin, amphotericin, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), or material of bovine (cow) origin. These substances are used during the laboratory process, and trace amounts may remain in the final product.
  •  
  • Have a skin infection near the treatment area.
  •  
  • Are not the person for whom the specific azficel-T dosage was designed. Each dosage is designed specifically for one person only, using that particular person's cells. Using someone else's azficel-T may result in very serious reactions.
  •

However, it is possible that not all of these issues were discussed in this article. Therefore, talk with your healthcare provider about the specific safety concerns that may apply to you.
