|Severe Hemophilia A||Drug: FVIII Concentrates Drug: FVIII/VWF concentrates|
The presence of Factor VIII (FVIII) inhibitor prevents FVIII infusions from working properly and makes treatment of bleeding episodes very difficult. Having an inhibitor is a serious and life-threatening complication in patients with Hemophilia. The usual treatment of patients with FVIII inhibitors involves "immune tolerance induction" (ITI). Immune Tolerance means that the body can accept infused FVIII and that FVIII is again effective in controlling bleeds. ITI involves giving high doses of FVIII regularly until the inhibitor disappears. This treatment is not always effective. The inhibitor persists in about 1 in 5 patients who undergo ITI.
There are 2 types of FVIII concentrates: FVIII concentrates derived from human plasma, which contain the von Willebrand factor, and concentrates of FVIII without VWF (recombinant or plasma derived). Both types of concentrates are commonly used to induce immune tolerance in patients with Hemophilia A. Retrospective studies in subjects with hemophilia and inhibitors at risk for failing ITI, have indicated a higher rate of success if patients were treated with von Willebrand containing factor VIII concentrates. It is not known whether the addition of Von Willebrand factor offers an advantage to achieving immune tolerance.

Active Comparator: von Willebrand factor-free FVIII concentrates
Patients treated with FVIII concentrates
Drug: FVIII Concentrates
Patients will be centrally randomized to receive a von Willebrand factor-free FVIII concentrate (recombinant or plasma-derived, monoclonally-purified). The choice of product brand will be based on physician / patients preferences.
Active Comparator: FVIII/VWF concentrates
Patients treated with FVIII/VWF concentrates
Drug: FVIII/VWF concentrates
Patients will be centrally randomized to receive a FVIII/VWF concentrate of 200 IU/Kg by one or two bolus injections daily.The choice of product brand will be based on physician / patients preferences.
- Primary end point is the success in inducing immune tolerance, defined as: the abolition of the inhibitor to < 0.6 BU within 33 months of ITI with a factor VIII recovery ≥ 66% and half-life ≥ 6 hrs, and measured after a 72-hour washout period. [ Time Frame: 33 months ]
- Absence of relapse, up to 12 months after achievement of Immune Tolerance [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
- Time to achieve partial or complete success as defined in the protocol. [ Time Frame: 33 months ]
- Safety Compliance to treatment [ Time Frame: 33 months ]
- Cost of Care [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
