Finding a treatment that works for you is important

From prophylaxis in adults and children (0-16 years), to helping to stop bleeds in adults and children on demand, you need a hemophilia A treatment that works for you. Click on the table below to learn more about the efficacy of Kogenate® FS Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant).

 

    15.2x Fewer Bleeds with Prophylaxis1

    In a clinical study measuring the results of Kogenate® FS as on-demand treatment versus prophylaxis (regular use) in previously treated adults, routine prophylactic treatment was proven to reduce the frequency of bleeds regardless of age, presence or absence of target joints, and bleeding history.1

    Eight times fewer bleeds

    Children using Kogenate FS as a prophylaxis treatment saw eight times fewer joint bleeds per year compared with enhanced on-demand treatment.1,4

    Over 8x fewer joint bleeds per patient per year1

    The average rate of index joint bleeds for subjects on on-demand therapy was 4.89 bleeds per year, versus 0.63 bleeds per year in the prophylaxis group.

    Study description:
    A total of 65 boys <30 months of age with severe hemophilia A (FVIII level ≤2 IU/dL) with ≤2 bleeds into each index joint and normal baseline joint imaging were observed for up to 5.5 years in a multicenter, open-label, prospective, randomized, controlled clinical study.

    Patients received Kogenate FS either 25 IU/kg every other day (primary prophylaxis, n=32) or at least 3 doses totaling a minimum of 80 IU/kg at the time of a bleeding episode (enhanced episodic, n=33).

    Joint damage was evaluated by MRI or radiography, and the frequency of bleeding episodes was assessed.

    Safety in routine prophylaxis

    A life-threatening bleed is a major hemorrhage or loss of blood, such as an intracranial or gastrointestinal bleed, which may result in death.

    Proven results

    Joint health is important for children living with hemophilia A. In one clinical study, 93% (25 of 27) of children with no pre-existing joint damage who were treated with Kogenate® or Kogenate® FS for routine prophylaxis up to 5.5 years had no joint damage as measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), compared with 55% (16 of 29) of children given on-demand treatment with Kogenate or Kogenate FS.1,4

    The difference between the 2 groups was statistically significant when using MRI but not when using x-ray alone.1

     

    9 out of 10
    children on routine prophylaxis experienced no joint damage, as measured by MRI.4

    Joint Outcome Study (JOS) study description: A total of 65 boys aged 0 to 2.5 years at the beginning of the study, with severe hemophilia A (FVIII level ≤2 IU/dL) and with ≤2 bleeds into each index joint and normal baseline joint imaging were observed for up to 5.5 years in a multicenter, open-label, prospective, randomized, controlled clinical study. Patients received either 25 IU/kg every other day (routine prophylaxis; 32 people) or at least 3 doses totaling a minimum of 80 IU/kg at the time of a bleeding episode (enhanced episodic; 33 people). Joint damage was evaluated by MRI or radiography, and the frequency of bleeding episodes was assessed.1,4

    Inhibitor rates

    Your body can make antibodies, called “inhibitors,” against factor VIII products including Kogenate FS, which may stop factor VIII from working properly. The inhibitor rates for Kogenate FS have been measured in several studies.

      Indications

    Kogenate® FS Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant) is a medicine used to replace clotting factor (factor VIII or antihemophilic factor) that is missing in people with hemophilia A.

    Kogenate FS is used to treat and control bleeding in adults and children with hemophilia A. Your healthcare provider may give you Kogenate FS when you have surgery. Kogenate FS can reduce the number of bleeding episodes in adults and children when used regularly (prophylaxis). Kogenate FS can reduce the risk of joint damage in children without pre-existing joint damage when used regularly.

    Kogenate FS is not used to treat von Willebrand disease.

     Important Safety Information

    You should not use Kogenate FS if you are allergic to rodents (like mice and hamsters) or are allergic to any ingredients in Kogenate FS.

    Tell your healthcare provider if you have been told you have heart disease or are at risk for heart disease.

    You could have an allergic reaction to Kogenate FS. Call your healthcare provider right away and stop treatment if you get rash or hives, itching, tightness of the chest or throat, difficulty breathing, light-headed, dizziness, nausea or a decrease in blood pressure.

    Your body can make antibodies, called “inhibitors,” against Kogenate FS, which may stop Kogenate FS from working properly. Consult with your healthcare provider to make sure you are carefully monitored with blood tests for the development of inhibitors to factor VIII.

    Other common side effects of Kogenate FS are local injection site reactions (pain, swelling, irritation at infusion site) and infections from implanted injection device. Tell your healthcare provider about any side effect that bothers you or does not go away.

    Call your healthcare provider right away if bleeding is not controlled after using Kogenate FS.

    For important risk and use information, please see full prescribing information.
