As part of CSL Behring Canada's continued commitment to ensuring the safety of the new low volume preparation of Humate-P®, CSL Behring Canada proposes to conduct a prospective, multi-center structured data collection of routine management of patients with von Willebrand disease treated with Humate P® ivr in Canada. The surveillance will be non-interventional and non-experimental. During the observation period, the routine medical care of the patient will be documented.

It is expected that there will be no difference in the safety and tolerability of Humate-P® ivr compared to Humate-P®

Von Willebrand Disease

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Canadian, Multi-center, Prospective, Open-label, Observational, Pharmacovigilance Study to Assess the Safety of Humate-P® Ivr (Infusion Volume Reduced) in Patients Transitioning From Treatment With Currently Available Humate-P®
