25 August 2015 CSL Behring Receives Marketing Authorization for Respreeza® in Europe

CSL Behring announced today that the European Commission (EC) has granted marketing authorization in all European Union (EU) member states for Respreeza® to treat patients with Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD). Respreeza®, a highly purified Alpha-1 protein derived from human plasma, is the only Alpha-1 proteinase inhibitor that has been proven in a prospective double blind, placebo controlled trial (the RAPID study) to significantly reduce the loss of lung tissue, slowing the progression of emphysema due to 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.

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.

01 June 2015 The Lancet Publishes CSL Behring’s Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Study Data

Findings from CSL Behring’s RAPID study, the largest placebo-controlled trial ever conducted in patients with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD), demonstrate that the use of Alpha1-Proteinase Inhibitor therapy may slow the progressive loss of lung tissue experienced by these critically ill patients. According to findings of RAPID (Randomized, Placebo-controlled Trial of Augmentation Therapy in Alpha-1 Proteinase Inhibitor Deficiency), published by The Lancet, patients with AATD treated with Alpha1-Proteinase Inhibitor therapy exhibited a lower annual rate of lung density decline compared to placebo, when measured using chest computed tomography, at full inspiration.
