Reported adverse events (AEs)

The safety and tolerability profile of ZEJULA in PRIMA is consistent with previous clinical trial experience1,2

AEs reported in ≥20% of all patients in PRIMA1

Patient icon

Only 12% of patients discontinued treatment with ZEJULA due to AEs.†1
This decreased even further to just 9% of patients in the BRCAmut sub-group.9

Compared with 2.5% in the placebo group.1 Discontinuation due to thrombocytopenia, anaemia, and neutropenia occurred in 4%, 3%, and 2% of patients, respectively.3

AE management

Side effects with ZEJULA can be managed with dose interruption and modification3

In PRIMA, adverse events led to dose interruptions and dose reductions in 79.5% and 70.9% of patients who received ZEJULA, respectively1

Monitoring complete blood counts and blood pressure will help identify the need to modify dosage of ZEJULA‡3

This is the recommended minimum requirement for monitoring. Prescribers should monitor as per guidelines and discretion.3

Monitor periodically.

Individualised dosing

ZEJULA individualised starting dose demonstrated lower rates of selected AEs vs a fixed starting dose3-8
