Octapharma Announces Publication of Clinical Data Demonstrating Low Immunogenicity and Excellent Efficacy of Nuwiq® in Previously Untreated Patients

Octapharma announce the publication of interim data from the NuProtect study (GENA-05,NCT01712438), the first clinical data on treatment with Nuwiq® in previously untreated patients (PUPs), on August 16, 2017 as an Early The NuProtect study was initiated in March 2013 to investigate the immunogenicity, efficacy and safety of Nuwiq® in PUPs with severe haemophilia A, who are at the greatest risk of developing inhibitors. The ongoing study has enrolled 110 PUPs of any age or ethnicity who will receive Nuwiq® for up to 100 exposure days (EDs), making it one of the largest studies with a single FVIII product. Patients who previously received any FVIII concentrates or blood products containing FVIII are excluded from the study. The recently published article describes interim results for 66 PUPs treated for at least 20 EDs, the time by which most inhibitors arise. The cumulative incidence (95% confidence interval) was 20.8% (10.7 "31.0) for all inhibitors and 12.8% (4.5 "21.2) for high-titre inhibitors. The study reported excellent efficacy of Nuwiq® in the prevention of bleeds, with median annual bleeding rates of 0 for spontaneous bleeds and 2.40 for all bleeds. Nuwiq® was also efficacious for the treatment of bleeds (92.4% of bleeds were controlled with one or two infusions) and as surgical prophylaxis (rated as “excellent” or “good” for 89% of surgical procedures). These interim results confirm the excellent haemostatic efficacy reported with Nuwiq® in previously treated patients.
