AREXVY 120 MCG KIT 10 DOSE/20 VIALS
RX - Pharmaceuticals
AREXVY (Respiratory Syncytial Virus Vaccine, Adjuvanted) is a sterile suspension for intramuscular injection. The vaccine is supplied as a vial of lyophilized recombinant respiratory syncytial virus glycoprotein F stabilized in pre-fusion conformation (RSVPreF3) as the antigen component, which must be reconstituted at the time of use with the accompanying vial of AS01E adjuvant as the adjuvant suspension component. The RSVPreF3 antigen is expressed by culturing genetically engineered Chinese Hamster Ovary cells in media containing no antibiotics or animal-derived proteins. The RSVPreF3 protein is purified by several chromatographic and filtration steps, formulated with excipients, filled into vials, and lyophilized. The AS01E adjuvant is composed of 3‑O‑desacyl‑4’‑monophosphoryl lipid A (MPL) from Salmonella minnesota and QS-21, a saponin purified from plant extract Quillaja saponaria Molina, combined in a liposomal formulation. The liposomes are composed of dioleoyl phosphatidylcholine (DOPC) and cholesterol in a phosphate-buffered saline solution containing disodium phosphate anhydrous, potassium dihydrogen phosphate, sodium chloride, and water for injection. After reconstitution, each 0.5-mL dose is formulated to contain 120 mcg of the recombinant RSVPreF3 antigen, 25 mcg of MPL, and 25 mcg of QS-21. Each dose also contains 14.7 mg of Trehalose, 4.4 mg of sodium chloride, 0.83 mg of potassium dihydrogen phosphate, 0.26 mg of dipotassium phosphate, 0.18 mg of polysorbate 80, 0.15 mg of disodium phosphate anhydrous, 0.5 mg of DOPC, and 0.125 mg of cholesterol. AREXVY contains no preservatives. Each dose may also contain residual amounts of host cell proteins (≤2.0%) and DNA (≤0.80 ng/mg) from the manufacturing process. The vial stoppers are not made with natural rubber latex.
