    Has anyone given Darzalex Faspro? Did you have any problems? Did the patient have any reactions?

    I'm assuming this is the rapid infusion. We just started doing this a few weeks ago in our office. Two patients who have been receiving Darzalex for a good while now. The typical infusion usually ran 3-4 hours. This infusion is still kept in a 500ml NS bag, initially started at 200ml for a half hour then increased to 400ml/hr if no reaction for the remainder. Decreasing infusion time to a little over an hour and a half. They did fine no issues and we're very happy to reduce their time in the chair. We also do rapid Rituxan infusion.
