Meet Brian

Brian was diagnosed with hemophilia A at an early age. Because of the great support from the staff at his hemophilia treatment center, he learned how to be cautious while remaining very active. Throughout his life, Brian hasn't allowed hemophilia to limit his love of outdoor activities. Attending conferences, camps, and other hemophilia community events has also expanded his network of support and friendship. Brian's mission is to speak with families about his experiences living with hemophilia to remind them that they are not alone.

Selected Important Safety Information

Contraindications

  • Do not use in patients who have had life-threatening hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, to Novoeight® or its components, including hamster proteins

Warnings and Precautions

  • Anaphylaxis and severe hypersensitivity reactions are possible. Patients may develop hypersensitivity to hamster proteins, which are present in trace amounts in the product. Should symptoms occur, discontinue Novoeight® and administer appropriate treatment

Indications and Usage

Novoeight® (antihemophilic factor, recombinant) is indicated for use in adults and children with hemophilia A for on-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes, perioperative management, and routine prophylaxis to reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes.

  • Novoeight® is not indicated for the treatment of von Willebrand disease

Important Safety Information

Contraindications

  • Do not use in patients who have had life-threatening hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, to Novoeight® or its components, including hamster proteins

Warnings and Precautions

  • Anaphylaxis and severe hypersensitivity reactions are possible. Patients may develop hypersensitivity to hamster proteins, which are present in trace amounts in the product. Should symptoms occur, discontinue Novoeight® and administer appropriate treatment
  • Development of activity-neutralizing antibodies (inhibitors) may occur. Previously untreated patients (PUPs) are at greatest risk for inhibitor development with all factor VIII products. Inhibitors have been reported following administration of Novoeight in PUPs. If expected plasma factor VIII activity levels are not attained, or if bleeding is not controlled with an appropriate dose, perform testing for factor VIII inhibitors

Adverse Reactions

  • The most frequently reported adverse reactions (≥1%) were inhibitors in Previously Untreated Patients (PUPs), injection site reactions, and pyrexia.
