  • Evaluation of PK parameter estimates of rFVIIIFc and rFVIII [ Time Frame: 156 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Evaluation of subject's response to treatment [ Time Frame: 156 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To evaluate the efficacy of rFVIIIFc used in a surgical subgroup [ Time Frame: 156 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: November 2010
Study Completion Date: October 2012
Primary Completion Date: August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A
Individualized Prophylaxis
Drug: rFVIIIFc
IV administration
Experimental: B
Weekly Prophylaxis
Drug: rFVIIIFc
IV administration
Experimental: C
Episodic (on demand) treatment
Drug: rFVIIIFc
IV administration

Detailed Description:

The current hemophilia standard of care for the prevention of bleeds and arthropathy is to maintain FVIII activity level above 1%. Due to the short half-life of the current FVIII products, prophylaxis therapy will require injection of 2-3 times per week or every other day. Treatment usually involves intravenous access, an invasive procedure, especially difficult in children. Episodic treatment will involve 1-3 injections to treat bleeding episodes, depending on the severity of the hemorrhage. Severe hemophilia patients will treat prophylactically with the long-lasting recombinant factor VIII Fc fusion protein (rFVIIIFc) in an interval to maintain FVIII activity level above 1%. Any bleeding episodes will be reported. The response to treatment will also be recorded to access the effectiveness of the rFVIIIFc.
