The Alpha-1 Foundation received the following communication update from CSL Behring, regarding Zemaira®, their prescription drug for augmentation therapy for the treatment of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (Alpha-1):

CSL Behring is pleased to inform you that we are lifting our precautionary distribution hold, and ZEMAIRA® [Alpha1-Proteinase Inhibitor (Human)] is now available for our customers.

“With this release of ZEMAIRA, CSL Behring is introducing a new and improved reconstitution device called the Mix2Vial® Transfer Set.

“The Mix2Vial Transfer Set, designed for use with ZEMAIRA, improves reconstitution and streamlines Alpha-1 therapy by:

  • Helps prevent vacuum loss
  • Less frequent spillage
  • Guided technique leading to safer handling

“Important Note: If the product comes with the Mix2Vial Transfer Set, you must only use the Mix2Vial and never use the old spike.

If you are a patient who typically self-infuses, please consult your healthcare professional.
