Introduction to Kynteles 300mg Injection

Kynteles 300mg injection contains the active component of vedolizumab, which belongs to the group of biological medicines known as monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). It is used as a treatment option for adults dealing with moderate to severe cases of ulcerative colitis (inflammation of the large bowel), crohn's disease (inflammation affecting the digestive system), and chronic pouchitis (inflammation of the lining of a pouch created during surgery to treat ulcerative colitis). In these three conditions, your initial course of treatment will typically involve other medications. If you do not respond well to them or experience intolerable side effects, your doctor may prescribe kynteles 300mg injection to help alleviate the signs and symptoms of your condition. 

Do not take this medication if you are under 18 or have allergies to vedolizumab or its components. Additionally, it is essential to inform your doctor if you have an active severe infection, such as tuberculosis (TB), blood poisoning, severe diarrhoea and vomiting (gastroenteritis), or nervous system infection. Another critical point is that you should not take this medication with other biological medicines that suppress your immune system, such as natalizumab or rituximab. 

Inform your healthcare provider if you plan to receive a vaccination or have recently had one. Vedolizumab may impact your response to vaccines. Always provide your doctor with a comprehensive overview of your medical history and the medications you are taking before starting this treatment. If you experience any possible side effects during or after treatment, don't hesitate to notify your doctor promptly.
