Answer

Central venous catheter placement may be required before the administration of immunosuppressive therapy, and patients with these catheters should be treated as inpatients. Patients may require blood product support during ATG therapy, as well as close monitoring for allergic or anaphylactic signs and symptoms and for prophylaxis and treatment of fevers. [5]
