Detailed Product Description
Routine prophylaxis dosage schedule:
Adults and Children 7 and older –
TETGLOB®(Tetanus Immunoglobulin B.P.) equivalent to 250 I.U. should be administered by deep intramuscular injection. At the same time, 0.5 ml dose of Tetanus vaccine (T. T.) can be given intramuscularly on a different extremity in a separate syringe and completion of the immunisation schedule is required with booster doses administered as and when necessary.
Children less than 7 years old –
The dose of TETGLOB®(Tetanus Immunoglobulin B.P.) may be calculated according the body weight in kilograms of the child (4 units/kg) OR 250 I. U. and given as deep intramuscular injection.
However, it may be advisable to administer the entire contents of the vials of TETGLOB®(Tetanus Immunoglobulin B.P.) 250 I.U. regardless of child’s size, since theoretically the same amount of toxin will be produced in the child’s body by the infecting Tetanus organism as it will in an adult’s body.
Treatment of active cases of Tetanus –
Standard therapy for the treatment of active tetanus including the use of TETGLOB® (Tetanus Immunoglobulin B.P.) must be implemented immediately.
The dosage should be adjusted according to the severity of the infection.
TETGLOB ® (Tetanus Immunoglobulin B.P.) may be administered locally by infiltration into the wound site as well as deep intramuscular injection.
