Baxter To Initiate Late-Stage Clinical Trial Of BAX 855 For The Treatment Of Hemophilia A

Detailed Important Risk Information for ADVATE

ADVATE is contraindicated in patients with known anaphylaxis to mouse or hamster protein or other constituents of the product.

Allergic-type hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, are possible and have been reported with ADVATE. Symptoms have manifested as dizziness, paresthesia, rash, flushing, face swelling, urticaria, dyspnea, and pruritus. Discontinue use if hypersensitivity symptoms occur and administer appropriate emergency treatment.

Carefully monitor patients treated with AHF products for the development of FVIII inhibitors by appropriate clinical observations and laboratory tests. Inhibitors have been reported following administration of ADVATE predominantly in previously untreated patients (PUPs) and previously minimally treated patients (MTPs).

If expected plasma FVIII levels are not attained, or if bleeding is not controlled with an expected dose, perform an assay that measures FVIII inhibitor concentration.

The serious adverse reactions seen with ADVATE are hypersensitivity reactions and the development of high-titer inhibitors necessitating alternative treatments to FVIII.

The most common adverse reactions observed in clinical trials (frequency greater than or equal to 10 percent of patients) were pyrexia, headache, cough, nasopharyngitis, vomiting, arthralgia, and limb injury.

About Hemophilia A

Hemophilia is a rare genetic blood clotting disorder that primarily affects males. 1 People living with hemophilia do not have enough of, or are missing, one of the blood clotting proteins naturally found in blood. 1 Two of the most common forms of hemophilia are A and B. 2 In people with hemophilia A, clotting factor VIII is not present in sufficient amounts or is absent. 2 Without enough FVIII, people with hemophilia can experience spontaneous, uncontrolled internal bleeding that is painful, debilitating, damaging to joints and potentially fatal. 2 According to the World Federation of Hemophilia, more than 400,000 people in the world have hemophilia. 3,4 All races and economic groups are affected equally. 3,4
