Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: PK substudy
A cohort of 13-18 subjects will be included in the pharmacokinetic (PK) evaluation of GreenGene™ F and an approved recombinant Factor VIII product (Refacto AF); a minimum of 13 of these subjects will be re-evaluated at study end (50 exposure day).
Biological: GreenGene™ F and an approved recombinant Factor VIII product
one 50 IU/kg, intra-venous infusion over 5 minutes, Infusion rate < 10 mL/min
Other Names:
  • GreenGeneF
  • GreenGene F
Experimental: Prophylaxis safety and efficacy substudy
Hemostatic efficacy of GreenGene™ F will be assessed by its effectiveness in controlling spontaneous or traumatic bleeding episodes and by the rate of breakthrough bleeding during prophylaxis over ≥ 50 exposure days.
Biological: GreenGene™ F
intra-venous infusion, 30 ± 5 IU/kg infusions 3 times per week with dose escalation to 45 ± 5 IU/kg if appropriate, for 50 exposure days
Other Names:
  • GreenGeneF
  • GreenGene F
Experimental: On-demand safety and efficacy substudy
Hemostatic efficacy of GreenGene™ F will be assessed by its effectiveness in controlling spontaneous or traumatic bleeding episodes and by the rate of breakthrough bleeding in a minimum of 10 on demand treated subjects during 50 exposure days.
Biological: GreenGene™ F

intra-venous infusion,

On-demand safety and efficacy substudy:

minor bleed = 10-20 IU/kg moderate bleed = 15-30 IU/kg major bleed = 30-50 IU/kg

Other Names:
  • GreenGeneF
  • GreenGene F
Experimental: Surgical substudy
Peri-operative hemostatic control of GreenGene™ F in surgery or invasive procedures will be assessed in at least 10 surgeries, some of them major, in at least five subjects
Biological: GreenGene™ F

intra venous infusion,

Surgical substudy:

Minor surgery including tooth extraction = Post in fusion FVIII level of 60-100% of normal. A single bolus infusion (30-50 IU/kg) beginning within one hour of the operation. Optional additional dosing every 12 to 24 hours as needed to control bleeding.

Major surgery = Pre- and post infusion FVIII level 80-120% of normal. Preoperative bolus infusion: 40-60 IU/kg. Verified 100% activity prior to surgery. Maintenance bolus infusion (40-60 IU/kg) repeat infusions every 8 to 24 hours, depending on the desired level.

Other Names:
  • GreenGeneF
