Considerations for choosing an appropriate factor product

  

More frequent dosing may provide higher factor levels1

  

Depending on patients' needs and lifestyles, continuing with or switching to an SHL factor product may represent an appropriate option.1
 

Higher factor levels and more frequent peaks may be needed for some patients.1

  • The importance of peak and trough levels in hemophilia patients is still not clearly understood. However, studies suggest that higher trough levels and greater area under the  curve may correlate to fewer bleeds, especially in the joints2
     

  • In patients with more sedentary lifestyles, longer dose intervals may be acceptable1
     
  • In patients with a less than below average half-life prolongation, target joints* or more on-the move lifestyles, higher and more frequent peak factor levels may be beneficial for sufficient bleed protection1,3
BeneFIX® offers the flexibility to infuse on-demand or prophylactically based on your patients' needs.4    Mahesh – a patient on the move  Patient profiles are hypothetical and for discussion purposes only.  Who is Mahesh?

On-the-move adult
 

A 36-year-old patient with severe
hemophilia B. A university administrator who travels often and loves playing outdoors with his children.

  

Treatment

  

Mahesh is currently on prophylaxis with BeneFIX® at a dose of 40 IU/kg every 3 to 4 days. He has experienced occasional joint pain and expects the dosing to be flexible and to consistently protect his joints.
He wants to consult his haematologist about increasing his dose as he is keen to avoid joint bleeds.

  


These patients may be doing everyday activities such as commuting to work, playing with their children or going for a walk. Patients who plan to engage in certain physical activities may benefit from higher levels and more frequent peaks.1

Why BeneFIX® may be appropriate for patients like Mahesh

  

Efficacy that is established
for prophylaxis, on-demand and surgery5,7,8
Convenient storage options
storage flexibility through room temperature storage (2 - 30 °C).4 Do not freeze4
Flexible dosing
with a predictable PK to support your patient's everyday life10
Favourable safety
with low inhibitor formation6
A broad range of vial sizes
(250, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000 IU) so you can individualise FIX coverage for your patients4

  

Informed decisions may lead to more favourable outcomes.1,3

To help ensure that patients are actively involved in creating their treatment plan, consider discussing the following points to help determine if an SHL or an EHL is more appropriate:

 

  • Lifestyle and activity level
  • Bleed pattern
  • Joint health
  • PK profile

  

*A target joint is a joint in which 3 or more spontaneous bleeds occurred within a consecutive 6-month period.9

  

EHL, extended half-life; FIX, factor IX; PK, pharmacokinetics; SHL, standard half-life.
