01 March 2010 Surveys Reveal High Frequency of Prodromal Symptoms Prior to Acute Hereditary Angioedema Attacks

Patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE) experience prodromal or early warning symptoms before nearly three-quarters of their HAE attacks, according to survey findings presented today at the 2010 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting. According to researchers, this high frequency suggests that prodromal symptoms may reliably indicate when to initiate treatment to help prevent an acute HAE attack.

01 March 2010 Study Shows C1-Esterase Inhibitor Concentrate Rapidly Relieves Acute, Successive Attacks of Hereditary Angioedema at All Body Sites

C1-esterase inhibitor (C1-INH) concentrate is an effective, well-tolerated therapy that rapidly relieves acute swelling attacks and successive attacks at any body location in patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE), a rare and serious genetic disorder, according to data presented today at the 2010 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting. Additional pharmacokinetic data presented at the meeting confirms that C1-INH concentrate has a longer half-life than other treatment options for HAE, which protects patients from rebound attacks.

01 March 2010 IgPro20, the First 20 Percent Subcutaneous Immunoglobulin, Demonstrates Efficacy Against Infections While Maintaining Tolerability in Patients with Primary Immunodeficiency

Data presented today suggest that 20 percent liquid formulation, Immune Globulin Subcutaneous (Human) (SCIg), or IgPro20 effectively protects patients with primary immunodeficiencies (PI) against infection. The 20 percent formulation, the highest Ig concentration currently available, was also shown to sustain serum IgG levels without causing unexpected rates of adverse events. The data were presented at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA, US.

01 March 2010 European Data Suggest Switching Patients to IgPro20 May Significantly Reduce Drug Administration Volume

Data from a European multicenter (non-IND study) showing that patients with PI who switched to IgPro20 from previously available SCIg formulations achieved comparable IgG trough levels without dosage adjustment, resulting in significantly less administration volume. The data were presented at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA, US.

01 March 2010 New Data Show IgPro20 Delivers Highest Available Subcutaneous Ig Concentration with Tolerability Comparable to Current Treatments

Data presented today show that IgPro20, the first 20 percent liquid formulation, delivers a higher concentration of treatment, with no trade-off in terms of local tolerability relative to currently marketed subcutaneous immunoglobulin (SCIg) products. The data were presented at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA, US.
