OBJECTIVE The objective of the present study was to evaluate the pharmacokinetics and the clearance pathways of rFVIIa after intravenous administration to hemophilia patients. METHODS Ten severe hemophilia patients were included in the study; all patients were intravenously administered a clinically relevant dose of 90 μg kg(-1) (1.8 nmol kg(-1)) rFVIIa.(More)
The objective was to diagnose a hypercoagulative state or "pre-DIC" with new laboratory tests. APACHE II score was used as a measure of primary illness. Ventilator time was used as a reflexion of secondary complications. Twenty-three ICU patients were divided into two groups depending on time on the ventilator: Group 1 > 7 days and Group II < or = 7 days.(More)
N8 is a new recombinant factor VIII (rFVIII) compound produced and formulated without human- or animal-derived protein. The aims of the present studies were to evaluate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics properties of N8 and to compare with a commercially available rFVIII product (Advate(®)) in haemophilia A mice. The pharmacokinetics were evaluated(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) profiles of the new recombinant FVIII compound turoctocog alfa and a Glyco-PEGylated FVIII derivative thereof (N8-GP) in Haemophilia A dogs. Six haemophilic dogs divided into two groups were included in the study. Each dog was administered a dose of 125 U(More)
Recombinant FVIIa is a haemostatic agent administered to patients with severe FVIII or FIX deficiency with inhibitors. Although rFVIIa is effective at stopping bleeding, a reliable assay to monitor its effect is lacking. To characterize the pharmacokinetics and global coagulation effects of rFVIIa for 6 h following a IV dose of 90 μg kg⁻¹. Ten non-bleeding(More)
Right ventricle (RV) dysfunction is a key outcome determinant and a leading cause of death for patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). In this report, we followed the 5-year clinical journey of a patient with CTEPH. The tricuspid pressure gradient was significantly increased in the early phase of CTEPH and "normalized" at the(More)
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) constitutes a part of the multiple organ failure (MOF) syndrome seen with such disorders as trauma and sepsis. Early detection of increased coagulation and fibrinolytic activity is important. The dynamic changes in some markers for early detection of the activation of these cascade systems are presented in(More)
