Next time you see a hemophilia A patient, consider prescribing extended half-life Esperoct® [anitihemophilic factor (recombinant), glycopegylated-exei]. One simple 50 IU/kg prophylactic dosea every 4 days (for adults and adolescents ≥12 years) can help patients achieve and maintain high trough levelsb,c and a low median ABRb  with fewer infusions than SHL treatments.1,d

Please click here for Esperoct® Prescribing Information and see Important Safety Information at the bottom of the page.

ABR=annualized bleed rate.
aRegimen can be individually tailored to less or more frequent dosing based on bleeding episodes.1
bIn a phase 3, open-label study, safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of Esperoct® were evaluated in PTPs aged ≥12 years with severe hemophilia A. Single-dose PK studies were performed in 42 adults after receiving Esperoct® 50 IU/kg; 175 PTPs received routine prophylaxis (50 IU/kg Q4D) for 76 weeks and 12 adults elected to be treated on demand during the main phase. Treatment-requiring bleeds were reported by patients through diaries. Mean trough levels for adolescents (12-<18 years) were 2.7 IU/dL.1,2
cSteady-state FVIII activity profiles were estimated in 143 patients using a one-compartment model with first-order elimination with PK parameters of clearance and volume of distribution.
d50% fewer if previously dosed every other day; 40% fewer if previously dosed 3x/week.
