From WikiMD's free health, diet & wellness encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

No information is available on the clinical use of abciximab during breastfeeding.

Absorption unlikely

Because abciximab is a large protein molecule with a molecular weight of 47,615, the amount in milk is likely to be very low and absorption is unlikely because it is probably destroyed in the infant's gastrointestinal tract.

Use caution

Until more data become available, abciximab should be used with caution during breastfeeding, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.

Monitor for side effects

If it is used by a nursing mother, monitor the infant for bruising and bleeding.
