Hereditary Angioedema (HAE)

01 March 2014 Patient Satisfaction and Convenience Increased with Current Hereditary Angioedema Treatment Options, According to Study Findings

Findings announced by CSL Behring today show that current hereditary angioedema (HAE) treatment options, such as C1 Esterase Inhibitor (C1-INH) concentrate, are allowing for greater patient satisfaction, higher rates of home treatment and a decrease in the number of hospitalizations and visits to the emergency room. HAE is a rare, potentially fatal swelling disorder caused by a deficiency of C1-INH. Until recently, only limited therapeutic options were available for patients in the U.S. with the condition. Today, HAE patients can choose from multiple options to address their condition. The 46-question online survey of physicians, which was conducted between March and June 2013, closely patterned after an initial survey conducted between October 2009 and February 2010. The data were presented at the 2014 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting.
