Sanofi  announced today that Auvi-Q™ (epinephrine injection, USP) is

Auvi-Q is a breakthrough in epinephrine auto-injector device design
that talks patients and caregivers step-by-step through the injection
process.

"Patient feedback was a critical component to the development
process for Auvi-Q," said Anne Whitaker, President, North America
Pharmaceuticals, Sanofi. "The availability of Auvi-Q represents an
important step forward in our continued innovation to meet the needs
of people at risk for anaphylaxis and their caregivers."

SANOFI AUVI-Q(TM)Up to six million Americans may be at risk for
anaphylaxis, although the precise incidence is unknown and likely
under-reported. While guidelines emphasize the importance of the life-
saving role of epinephrine, two large surveys  show that two-thirds of
patients and caregivers do not carry their epinephrine auto-injectors
as recommended, and nearly half worry that others will not know how
to use their or their child's epinephrine auto-injector correctly during
an emergency.

Multiple studies have found an association between delay in
epinephrine administration and death from anaphylaxis. Life-
threatening allergic reactions may occur as a result of exposure to
allergens including foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish,
dairy, eggs, soy and wheat; insect stings; latex and medication, among
other allergens and causes.

  • Dr's recommend you carry two epinephrine
    auto injectors at all times.
  • Self carry two  Auvi-Q inside secured pant
    pockets, an undergarment holder, or a
    carrier that can be attached or clip on to
    your clothing.
