What is Reblozyl?
Reblozyl is a brand-name prescription medication. It’s used to treat anemia (low red blood cell count) in adults with certain blood disorders. Specifically, it’s used:
- In adult patients with β-thalassaemia who require regular red blood cell transfusions,
- In anemia failing an erythropoiesis stimulating agent and requiring 2 or more red blood cell units over 8 weeks in adult patients with very low- to intermediate-risk myelodysplastic syndrome with ring sideroblasts (MDS-RS) or with myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasm with ring sideroblasts and thrombocytosis
More specifically, Reblozyl is a type of drug called an erythroid maturation agent. It helps raise the number of healthy, mature red blood cells in the blood. Reblozyl is a biologic (a drug made using living cells) that contains the active drug luspatercept-aamt. The drug is administered by subcutaneous injection (an injection under the skin), typically once every 3 weeks.
