Galcanezumab: Aseptic Techniques During Supply Shortages

During medical supply shortages, Lilly encourages patients to contact their health care provider for assistance.


Injection Aseptic Techniques

This medical response may not completely match the information in the current local labeling for GALCANEZUMAB. Please see local labeling for approved label information.

Patients should follow the guidance on good aseptic techniques, such as handwashing and use of alcohol swabs, as outlined in the galcanezumab “Instructions for Use.”1

Guidance During Medical Supply Shortages

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread medical supply shortages, including alcohol swabs and bottles of 70% isopropyl alcohol.

During shortages, patients should contact their health care provider for suggested alternative aseptic measures.

Injection Site Preparation

As an alternative to the use of alcohol, the WHO recommends the use of soap and water for skin preparation and disinfection of injection sites.2
