AN AGILE TREATMENT PLAN
A plan that helps you and your healthcare professional navigate and react to changes in your multiple sclerosis (MS) journey.
TREATMENT WITH PONVORY® MAY ALIGN WITH THE IDEA OF AN AGILE TREATMENT PLAN
LET’S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT HOW
MANAGING VACCINES AND INFECTIONS WITH PONVORY®
PONVORY® locks away immune cells called lymphocytes, without destroying them.*
If your healthcare professional decides it’s necessary to pause treatment with PONVORY®, lymphocytes may return to normal levels within 1 to 2 weeks.†
This might be important when planning for certain vaccines or addressing infections.
*The exact way PONVORY® works in MS is unknown, but it is believed to work by reducing the number of lymphocytes in the blood.
†In the phase 3 study, lymphocyte counts returned to normal range within 2 weeks after stopping PONVORY®.
FAMILY PLANNING WITH PONVORY®
If you're thinking about planning for a family,‡ PONVORY® leaves the body naturally in ~7 days after pausing.¶
PONVORY® may harm your unborn baby. Tell your healthcare professional right away if you become pregnant while taking PONVORY® or within 1 week after you stop taking PONVORY®.
If you're a woman who can become pregnant, you should use effective birth control during your treatment with PONVORY® and for 1 week after you stop taking PONVORY®. Talk to your healthcare professional about what method of birth control is right for you.
When PONVORY® is stopped, symptoms of MS may return and become worse compared with before or during treatment. Always talk to your healthcare professional before you stop taking PONVORY® for any reason. Tell your healthcare professional if you have worsening symptoms of MS after stopping PONVORY®.
Make sure to discuss family planning or other treatment goals with your healthcare professional.Do not stop taking PONVORY® without talking to your healthcare professional first.
‡PONVORY® should not be taken during pregnancy. Tell your healthcare professional right away if you become pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant.
¶No elimination procedure required.
You and your healthcare professional should work as a team to come up with a treatment plan that’s based on a shared understanding of the medications available to you. This is called shared decision-making, and it’s key to developing a treatment plan that’s best suited for you and your personal MS experience.
