This trial is conducted in Asia, Europe and North America. The aim of the trial is to investigate the safety of monthly replacement therapy of recombinant factor XIII in patients with congenital FXIII deficiency. The trial continues until the product is commercially available, but an interim assessment will take place when all subjects have completed 52 weeks in the trial.

Ages Eligible for Study:   6 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • For subjects who participated in F13CD-1725:
  • Previous participation (means up to and inclusive Visit 16, (End of Trial)) in F13CD-1725
  • For all other subjects:
  • Diagnosis of congenital FXIII A-subunit deficiency (confirmed by genotyping at screening visit or documented results from previously performed genotyping)
