Fenwal Receives FDA Clearance to Include New Clinical Data in the Product Label of its Platelet Additive Solution, InterSol
Mar 24 14
Fenwal announced it has received FDA clearance to include new clinical data in the product label of its platelet additive solution, InterSol(TM) (PAS 3). A multi-center, non-randomized, open-label retrospective medical chart review study involving about 14,000 transfusions looked at adverse events related to platelet transfusion with and without additive solution. Platelet transfusions using Fenwal InterSol led to a 0.55% adverse event reaction rate, while transfusions using only plasma platelets led to a 1.37% adverse event reaction rate. Clinical experience has suggested that allergic transfusion reactions may be reduced by replacing a portion of the total plasma volume with platelet additive solution. Fenwal InterSol solution replaces approximately 65% of the plasma used for platelet storage, on platelets collected on the Fenwal Amicus(R) separator. The results of this study are consistent with these previous findings. No adverse safety trends were identified after a review of all the adverse events by the Independent Clinical Events Committee. Platelet transfusions using Fenwal InterSol resulted in a 0.29% allergic reaction rate, while transfusions using only plasma platelets resulted in a 0.82% allergic reaction rate. Febrile Non-Hemolytic Transfusions reaction events were associated with 0.17% of platelet transfusions with Fenwal's InterSol and 0.50% of transfusions with plasma platelets.
