Cimzia® (certolizumab pegol) Prefilled Syringe
- Product Description
The Cimzia® (certolizumab pegol) prefilled syringe, designed by UCB in partnership with OXO GOOD GRIPS® is available exclusively for use with the Cimzia®, an injectable medication approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in May 2009 for the treatment of adult patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis. UCB and OXO recognized the importance of designing a syringe and packaging components with the patient in mind to provide ease of use, comfort, control and confidence.
The new syringe provides a soft, non-slip grip on the flange which allows patients to hold the syringe steady using various grip positions making it is easy and comfortable to use. The large and soft thumb pad on the plunger makes it easy to push while the rounded finger loop allows for easy removal of the needle cover. The easy-to-read syringe barrel helps to ensure patients receive the entire dose as they can see the medicine inside and know when they have injected all of the medication. Additionally, the packaging utilizes Velcro® for easy opening and resealing.
