About fibrinogen concentrate [human]
CSL Behring manufactures a purified fibrinogen concentrate marketed under the name Haemocomplettan ® P which is licensed for an acquired bleeding indication in the following countries: Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Iran, Israel, Kuwait, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Switzerland, Taiwan, and Turkey.
CSL Behring is conducting a Phase III study to further investigate the utility of fibrinogen concentrate in complex cardiovascular surgery. Its utility is also being investigated in a range of other clinical indications, including liver disease, postpartum haemorrhage and trauma, in which a critical reduction in the level of coagulation factors can lead to additional non-surgical bleeding complications.
In the United States, fibrinogen concentrate is indicated for the treatment of acute bleeding episodes in patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency, including afibrinogenaemia and hypofibrinogenaemia. Afibrinogenaemia, or congenital fibrinogen deficiency, is a rare and life-threatening disorder that results from a deficiency in fibrinogen that prevents blood from clotting normally. This disease is inherited and can occur in men and women.  Approximately one in one million people in Western countries have this disorder.
