Thymoglobulin infusion

I was asked to place a PICC line in a 18 y/o kidney transplant patient for a thymoglobulin infusion. I am not familiar with this drug. What I do know is that it is used as a last resort when a patient is rejecting. Anyway, the doctor wanted the PICC because she considered the drug a vesicant and was worried about chemical phlebitis. I wanted to lean more towards a Midline ( I could not find any info related to its vesicant qualities at the time), so I went ahead with the PICC. Is anyone familiar with this drug or know its vesicant qualities????? 

 Thanks, Parrish
