More patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE), a rare and potentially fatal genetic disorder, are being offered and opting for self-administration therapy, according to data from a new survey being presented at the 2013 American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) Annual Meeting. Of the HAE treatment centers surveyed in Europe, Canada and the United States, the majority (70 percent) reported that at least 50 percent of patients were now self-administering their therapy, and the HAE specialists who responded agreed that this treatment option is advantageous to patients, citing key benefits as time saved, independence and convenience.

23 February 2013 CSL Behring Study Shows Berinert® Is Least Costly On-demand

CSL Behring announced the results of a cost-effectiveness analysis showing that on-demand treatment of hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks with Berinert®, C1 Esterase Inhibitor (Human), provides cost savings to payers when compared with the use of two other therapies approved in the U.S. for the acute treatment of HAE. The data were presented at the 2013 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting. The cost study, which compared Berinert to Firazyr® and Kalbitor™, analyzed differential dosing and administration costs indirectly using current, publically available prices. Results were weighted by typical re-dosing frequencies. The study included no head-to-head comparison of product efficacy or safety.

08 November 2012 Analysis Finds Improvements in Health-Related Quality of Life for Hereditary Angioedema Patients Treated with C1-Inhibitor

A high level of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is achievable for patients managing hereditary angioedema (HAE), a rare and serious genetic disorder, when effective treatment such as C1-inhibitor (INH) concentrate is available, according to a prospective patient assessment published recently in Allergy & Asthma Proceedings, the official journal of Regional, State & Local Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Societies (RSLAAIS) and the American Association of Certified Allergists (AACA). More than half of the HAE patients participating in the assessment reported feeling somewhat or much better with the availability of C1-INH concentrate, and more than 80 percent of participants indicated a more optimistic outlook on the future.
