Study of a pd vWF/FVIII, Biostate®, in Subjects With Haemophilia A

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
CSL Behring Identifier:
First received: April 9, 2009
Last updated: February 10, 2011
Last verified: February 2011

The aim of this study are to

  • assess the efficacy of Biostate® [Study Product (SP)] in subjects with Haemophilia A
  • compare the pharmacokinetics of Biostate® [SP] with the previously marketed product Biostate® (here referred to as Biostate® [Reference Product (RP)]).

This study is divided into 3 parts:

Part 1: Cross-over pharmacokinetic (PK) component. PK subjects will be randomised to determine the order in which they receive the two study products. This part of the study is double-blinded.

Part 2: Efficacy component. All subjects will receive Biostate® [SP] as required to manage their haemophilia condition for an estimated period of 6 months (or minimum of 50 exposure days) to assess efficacy and safety of the product. This part of the study is open-label.

Part 3: Repeat pharmacokinetic assessment. Subjects who participated in Part 1 (PK component) will undergo a repeat PK assessment on Day 180 following administration of Biostate® [SP].

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Haemostatic efficacy [ Time Frame: Monthly, until final study visit ]
  • Number of treatments/units required to resolve any bleeding event [ Time Frame: From Day 1 until final study visit ]
  • FVIII concentrate usage (number of infusions, IU/kg per event, per month, and per year) [ Time Frame: From Day 1 until final study visit ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
PK Biostate® [SP]

Part 1: PK subjects are randomized to receive Biostate® [SP] either on Day 1 or Day 8.

Part 3: All PK subjects receive Biostate® [SP] on Day 180.

Biological: Biostate® [SP]
Single bolus intravenous dose of 50 IU/kg
Other Name: Human Coagulation Factor VIII / von Willebrand Factor
PK Biostate® [RP]
Part 1: PK subjects are randomized to receive Biostate® [RP] either on Day 1 or Day 8.
Biological: Biostate® [RP]
Single bolus intravenous dose of 50 IU/kg.
Other Names:
  • Biostate®
  • Human Coagulation Factor VIII / von Willebrand Factor
Experimental: Efficacy
Part 2: This arm includes all subjects during the efficacy component of the study.
Biological: Biostate® [SP]
The dose is dependent on the reason for use and may consist of repeated bolus doses as required to manage haemophilia condition.
Other Name: Human Coagulation Factor VIII / von Willebrand Factor


Ages Eligible for Study:   12 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosed with Haemophilia A with ≤ 1% Factor VIII (FVIII) levels in the absence of factor replacement
  • Evidence of vaccination against hepatitis A and B (or presence of antibodies against hepatitis A and B due to either a previous infection or prior immunisation) within 10 years prior to Day 1 documented in the medical notes
  • At least 150 days of prior exposure to a FVIII replacement product
  • Written informed consent given

Exclusion Criteria (for participation in the pharmacokinetic (PK) component):

  • Active bleeding
  • Body weight > 100 kg

Exclusion Criteria (for all subjects):

  • Receipt of an infusion of any FVIII product, cryoprecipitate, whole blood, plasma, or desmopressin acetate (DDAVP) in the 4 days prior to Day 1

  • Receipt of aspirin or other Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) within 7 days of administration of study product.
  • CD4 lymphocytes < 200/µL. Subjects wo are HIV-1 positive may be considered for the study if viral load ≤ 200 particles/µL at screening and all other eligibility criteria are met.
  • Impaired liver function ie. bilirubin >1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) and/or AST/ALT > 2.5 x ULN at screening.
  • Acute or chronic medical condition, other than haemophilia A, which may, in the opinion of the Investigator, affect the conduct of the study

  • Evidence or a history (within the previous 12 months) of abuse of any drug substance, licit or illicit
  • Known or suspected hypersensitivity or previous evidence of severe side effects to Biostate®, FVIII concentrates or human albumin
  • Participation in a clinical study or use of an investigational compound (e.g. a new chemical entity not approved for clinical use) in the 3 months preceding the first day of study drug administration, or plans to enter such a study during the study period
  • Not willing and/or not able to comply with study requirements
