The Krystal Connect Team includes Patient Access Liaisons and Community Education Liaisons*:
Patient Access Liaisons (PALs)
PALs can help patients with treatment coordination, and can help with a broad range of topics, such as insurance coverage and financial assistance. PALs are experts in health insurance and helping patients understand the healthcare system.
Community Education Liaisons (CELs)
CELs have backgrounds in nursing or genetic counseling. They can provide education and help answer questions about DEB and treatment with VYJUVEK. They can share information about programs and events tailored to the DEB community.
*PALs and CELs do not direct patient care or provide medical advice.
VYJUVEK is a topical gel indicated for the treatment of wounds in patients 6 months of age and older with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB) with mutation(s) in the collagen type VII (COL7A1) gene.
WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
Accidental Exposure to VYJUVEK gel: VYJUVEK will not replicate in the subject’s cells and does not integrate into the subject cells’ native genetic material. For precautions, avoid direct contact with treated wounds (e.g., touching or scratching) and dressings of treated wounds for approximately 24 hours following treatment. Wear protective gloves when assisting subjects with changing wound dressings and handling the disposal. In the event of accidental exposure (e.g., through a splash to the eyes or mucous membranes), flush with clean water for at least 15 minutes.
Clean all surfaces that may have come in contact with VYJUVEK biological suspension or gel and treat all spills with a virucidal agent.
Dispose all materials (e.g., vial, syringe, needle, cleaning materials) that may have come in contact with VYJUVEK biological suspension or gel into a biohazard bag or container.ADVERSE REACTIONS
The most common adverse reactions (>5%) were itching, chills, redness, rash, cough, and runny nose.
