NUWIQ Safety in PTPs1

  • NUWIQ was shown to be safe in clinical studies that included 135 previously treated patients (PTPs)
  • FVIII levels can be safely and accurately measured with both the chromogenic and one-stage assays
  • No serious or severe reactions to NUWIQ in clinical studies, and no deaths reported

Inhibitor Risk in Previously Untreated Patients (PUPs)

Results from the SIPPET Study (Survey of Inhibitors in Plasma-Product Exposed Toddlers)3

  • The SIPPET study compared the rates of inhibitors in PUPs who were treated with either plasma-derived FVIII (pdFVIII) or recombinant FVIII (rFVIII) made from hamster cells
  • Results from the SIPPET study showed:
    PUPs treated with rFVIII from hamster cells had a 28.4% incidence of high-titer inhibitors
    PUPs treated with pdFVIII had a 18.6% incidence of high-titer inhibitors

NUWIQ Safety in PUPs

  • The safety of NUWIQ in PUPs with severe Hemophilia A is being studied in a clinical trial called NuProtect.3
  • The trial will evaluate 110 PUPs, making NuProtect the largest prospective study with a single FVIII product.
  • In an interim analysis from NuProtect, data from 66 PUPs treated with NUWIQ was evaluated.
  • The interim data showed a 12.8% incidence of high-titer inhibitors*

*Results are from an interim analysis of the NuProtect study and do not reflect final study results. These data have not been presented to the FDA for evaluation. Information from the NuProtect study is presented in parallel to the SIPPET study for context, but please note that these trials were performed under different conditions, with different populations, and are not “head to head” comparisons.
