How to talk with your doctor about Kogenate® FS, Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant)

Interested in using Kogenate FS? Talk with your healthcare provider and consider asking some of these questions:

  1. Should I consider routine prophylaxis for my child?
  2. What are the side effects associated with factor VIII treatment?
  3. How safe is it to take rFVIII every other day?
  4. If treated episodically, or on demand, what is the likelihood of developing joint damage?
  5. What are the chances of being infected with a virus from rFVIII?
  6. How does the Kogenate FS work?

Always tell your doctor about these things, too:

  1. Tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions.
  2. Tell your healthcare provider (and pharmacist) about all of the medicines you take, including all prescription and non-prescription medicines, such as over-the-counter medicines, supplements or herbal remedies.
  3. Tell your healthcare provider if you have been told you have heart disease or are at risk for heart disease or are at risk for heart disease.
  4. Tell your healthcare provider if you have been told that you have inhibitors to factor VIII (because Kogenate FS may not work for you).

 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.
