- Overall Clinical Assessment of the Haemostatic Efficacy of Octafibrin in Treating the First Documented Bleeding Episode of Each Patient. [ Time Frame: 24 hours after last infusion for each bleeding episode ]
The first bleeding episode covers the time period from the first Octafibrin infusion until 24 hours (i.e., 1 day) after the last infusion.
The investigator's overall clinical assessment of haemostatic efficacy for bleeding was based on a 4 point haemostatic efficacy scale. The final efficacy assessment of each patient was adjudicated by the Independent Data Monitoring & Endpoint Adjudication Committee (IDMEAC).
- Maximum Clot Firmness (MCF) After Fibrinogen Infusion in Each Documented Bleeding Episode (BE), Measured in Frozen Plasma in a Central Laboratory. [ Time Frame: Before first infusion and 1 hour after end of first and last infusion of each documented bleeding episode ]MCF (mm) was determined using ROTEM and was used as a surrogate marker for haemostatic efficacy. ROTEM is a method for the continuous measurement of clot formation and clot firmness. It utilises a mechanical detection system which is based on the ability of the blood or plasma clot to form a mechanical coupling over a distance of 1 mm.
- Fibrinogen Plasma Level [ Time Frame: Before (pre-infusion), 1 hour and 3 hours after the end of each subsequent infusion as well as at the time of the overall clinical assessment of haemostatic efficacy (i.e., 24 hours after the last infusion of each documented bleeding episode) ]Fibrinogen plasma level was assessed using the Clauss fibrinogen assay
- Response as Indicated by Incremental in Vivo Recovery (IVR) [ Time Frame: Pre-infusion and 1 and 3 hours post-infusion ]Incremental IVR (response): calculated as the maximum increase in plasma fibrinogen (i.e., Clauss data) between pre-infusion and 1 and 3 hours post-infusion, divided by the exact dose of Octafibrin.
- Efficacy of Octafibrin for All Bleeding Episodes Collected in the Study [ Time Frame: 24 hours after last infusion for each bleeding episode ]The investigator's overall clinical assessment of haemostatic efficacy for bleeding will be based on a 4-point haemostatic efficacy scale. The final efficacy assessment of each patient will be adjudicated by the Independent Data Monitoring & Endpoint Adjudication Committee (IDMEAC)
- Efficacy of Octafibrin in Preventing Bleeding During and After Surgery [ Time Frame: First dose of Octafibrin administered prior to elective surgery to at least 3 post-operative days for minor and 7 post-operative days for major surgeries or last post-operative infusion, whichever comes last ]The efficacy of Octafibrin will be assessed at the end of surgery by the surgeon and post-operatively by the haematologist using two 4-point haemostatic efficacy scales. An overall efficacy assessment taking both the intra- and post-operative assessment into account will be adjudicated by the IDMEAC
- Analysis of Safety: Immunogenicity Testing for Anti-fibrinogen Antibodies [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days (start of the first Octafibrin infusion until the end of each 30-day observation and follow-up period for on-demand treatment or until the Last Post-Operative Day in surgeries) ]Immunogenicity testing for the presence of anti-fibrinogen antibodies at Day 14 and Day 30 after the administration of Octafibrin for bleeding. An experimental non-standard ELISA was developed for this study for evaluating anti-fibrinogen antibodies. No specific test was performed to discern for neutralizing antibodies. The clinical implications of the assay results are not known.
