DB09105Asfotase alfaIndicated for the treatment of patients with perinatal/infantile and juvenile onset hypophosphatasia (HPP).
DB09109Turoctocog alfaTuroctocog alfa is indicated for the treatment and prophylaxis of bleedings in patients presenting hemophilia A.[L1105] The treatment with turoctocog alfa is related with its use to control bleeding episodes or as a perioperative management.[L1106] Hemophilia A is a hereditary hemorrhagic disorder generated by the congenital deficit of the coagulation factor VIII. This disease is manifested as excessive spontaneous or trauma-driven bleeding. The coagulation factor VIII is a robust initiator of thrombin which is later required for the generation of fibrin to form a platelet plug and its gene is expressed in the X chromosome.[A31505]

DB13999Moroctocog alfaMoroctocog Alfa is approved by Health Canada for the control and prevention of hemorrhagic episodes and for routine and surgical prophylaxis in patients with hemophilia A (congenital factor VIII deficiency or classic hemophilia). Moroctocog Alfa is also approved by the European Medicines Agency for the treatment and prophylaxis of bleeding in patients with Haemophilia A (congenital factor VIII deficiency).
DB09329Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), PEGylatedFor the management of hemophilia A (congenital factor VIII deficiency) [FDA label], [A32064]. This medication is a human antihemophilic factor indicated in adolescent and adult patients (12 years and older) with hemophilia A (congenital factor VIII deficiency). It is also used for on-demand treatment and control of bleeding and routine prophylaxis of bleeding episodes. It is not indicated for the treatment of von Willebrand disease [FDA label].
DB14712ElapegademaseElapegademase is approved for the treatment of adenosine deaminase severe combined immune deficiency (ADA-SCID) in pediatric and adult patients.[L4654] This condition was previously treated by the use of pegamedase bovine as part of an enzyme replacement therapy.[L4655] ADA-SCID is a genetically inherited disorder that is very rare and characterized by a deficiency in the adenosine deaminase enzyme. The patients suffering from this disease often present a compromised immune system. This condition is characterized by very low levels of white blood cells and immunoglobulin levels which results in severe and recurring infections.[L4656]
DB14738Turoctocog alfa pegolTuroctocog alfa pegol (N8-GP) is indicated for use in adults and children of all ages with hemophilia A (congenital factor VIII deficiency) for routine prophylaxis in reducing the frequency of bleeding episodes, on-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes, and the perioperative management of bleeding [F3649].

DB13884Albutrepenonacog alfaUnder the EMA and FDA, rIX-RFP is indicated in the treatment of hemophilia B.[L2306] For Health Canada, rIX-FRP is also indicated to prevent or reduce bleeding episodes.[L2305] Hemophilia B is the second most common type of hemophilia. It is a rare inherited bleeding disorder caused by reduced or absent levels of factor IX (FIX). The FIX is a vitamin K-dependent plasma protease that when activated is involved in the blood coagulation cascade.[A32551] The hemophilia B is caused by mutations in the _FIX_ gene which can cause different phenotypes. The severe form is characterized by the presence of spontaneous and recurring bleeds into the joints and muscles and excessive bleeding after trauma or surgery.[A32552]
DB14731TagraxofuspTagraxofusp is indicated for the treatment of blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) in adults and pediatric patients over 2 years old. This treatment allows an alternative for the previous intense treatment which consisted of intensive chemotherapy followed by bone marrow transplantation.[L4893] BPDCN is a rare hematologic malignancy derived from plasmacytoid dendritic cells. It is characterized by the significantly increased expression of cells expressing CD4/CD56/CD123 and other markers restricted to plasmacytoid dendritic cells and a lack of expression of lymphoid, natural killer or myeloid lineage-associated antigens.[A40274] A key feature of the malignant cells is the overexpression of CD123, also known as interleukin-3 receptor, and the constant requirement of IL-3 for survival.[L4897]
