Acute bleeding episodes

DrugDrug NameDrug Description
DB09329Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), PEGylatedAntihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), PEGylated, was approved by the FDA in December 2016 as the product _Adynovate_ [FDA label]. Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), PEGylated, is a recombinant full-length human coagulation factor VIII (2,332 amino acids with a molecular weight (MW) of approximately 280 kDa) covalently conjugated with at least one molecule of polyethylene glycol (MW 20 kDa) [FDA label]. It has been created to increase the half-life of factor VIII, which decreases dose frequency and decreases the occurrence of bleeding events [A32067], [A32069], [FDA label]. PEGylation is the covalent attachment of a polyethylene glycol polymer, called PEG, to a drug or protein. PEGylation decreases factor VIII clearance and allowing for an increased duration of drug circulation in the plasma [L1529].
DB09222Fibrinogen HumanFibrinogen concentrate (human) is a hematological agent. It works by replacing a certain protein in the blood that helps with blood clotting. Fibrinogen (factor I) is a soluble plasma glycoprotein with a molecular weight of about 340 kDa. It is a physiological substrate for three enzymes: plasmin, factor XIIIa and thrombin. it is indicated for the treatment of acute bleeding episodes in patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency, including afibrinogenemia and hypofibrinogenemia.
