FDA Approves Octapharma’S Nuwiq® for the Treatment of Adults and Children with Hemophilia A

Octapharma USA announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved NUWIQ®, Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), an intravenous therapy for adults and children living with Hemophilia A. The NUWIQ® approval includes on-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes; routine prophylaxis to reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes; and perioperative management of bleeding. NUWIQ® is the first B-domain deleted recombinant Factor VIII (FVIII) derived from a human cell-line, not chemically modified or fused with another protein, designed for the treatment of patients with Hemophilia A, congenital FVIII deficiency. Hemophilia A impacts the lives of up to 16,000 individuals in the U.S. and their caregivers. Although present therapies for Hemophilia A treatment exist in the U.S., significant challenges still remain, including development of inhibitors and the need for multiple infusions on a prophylactic basis. Octapharma USA is a subsidiary of global human protein products manufacturer Octapharma AG, which develops and manufactures high-purity recombinant and plasma-derived coagulation factor concentrates for patients with bleeding disorders. The European Commission first approved the therapy in August 2014. NUWIQ®is currently approved in many countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Sweden and Argentina.
