New long-term data to be presented on Elocta(TM) at annual EAHAD meeting
Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ) (Sobi) in collaboration with Biogen Idec will present new data from their haemophilia clinical development programmes at the 8th European Association for Haemophilia and Allied Disorders (EAHAD), taking place in Helsinki, Finland, February 11 - 13, 2015. Six abstracts will be presented, including new, interim results from the ASPIRE long-term extension study. Results from the Kids A-LONG, A-LONG, and B-LONG Phase 3 studies will also be presented.
“We are pleased to continuously share emerging evidence generated from the pivotal clinical programs for the product candidates Elocta and rFIXFc. The new interim results from the ASPIRE study, presented in collaboration with Biogen Idec, discuss the longer term use of Elocta in people with severe haemophilia A, followed in an open label extension from the pivotal A-LONG study, and further establishes the efficacy and safety of Elocta”, says Birgitte Volck, MD, PhD, Senior Vice President, Chief Medical Officer at Sobi.
The titles of the poster presentations are as follows:
- Long-term safety and efficacy of recombinant factor VIII Fc (rFVIIIFc) in adults and adolescents with severe haemophilia A: an interim analysis of the ASPIRE study; PP066
- Interim analysis of the ASPIRE study evaluating long-term safety and efficacy of recombinant factor VIII Fc (rFVIIIFc) in children with severe haemophilia A; PP076
- Perioperative management of subjects with haemophilia A in the ASPIRE study with long-acting recombinant factor VIII Fc fusion protein (rFVIIIFc); PP116
- Safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics of recombinant factor VIII Fc fusion protein (rFVIIIFc) in previously treated paediatric subjects with severe haemophilia A (Kids A-LONG); PP032
- Subject-reported changes in physical activity during the A-LONG study of recombinant factor VIII Fc fusion protein (rFVIIIFc) for severe haemophilia A; PP035
- Subject-reported changes in physical activity during the B-LONG study of recombinant factor IX Fc fusion protein (rFIXFc) for severe haemophilia B; PP028
