29 June 2015 CSL Behring Receives Positive CHMP Opinion for Respreeza® as Maintenance Treatment for Severe Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Patients in Europe

CSL Behring announced today that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has recommended granting marketing authorization for Respreeza®, a highly purified alpha-1 protein derived from human plasma, indicated to treat patients with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD). AATD is a hereditary condition marked by a lack of the alpha-1 antitrypsin protein, whose main function is to protect the lungs from inflammation. Respreeza® replaces the protein that these patients are missing and raises the alpha-1 antitrypsin levels in their blood, which can help to protect the lungs from damage due to inflammation.
