Antihemophilic factor

CSL Behring has announced that Idelvion (Coagulation Factor IX [Recombinant], Albumin Fusion Protein) is now available in a 3500 IU vial size.

Idelvion is also available in 250 IU, 500 IU, 1000 IU, and 2000 IU vial sizes.

For some patients requiring high doses of Idelvion, the new 3500 IU vial size will reduce the reconstitution time needed to prepare multiple vials for a similar dose.

Idelvion is a fusion protein linking recombinant coagulation factor IX with recombinant albumin, and it is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat children and adults with hemophilia B.

Idelvion can be used as routine prophylaxis to prevent or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes, for on-demand control and prevention of bleeding episodes, and for the perioperative management of bleeding.

Idelvion is approved for up to 14-day dosing in appropriate patients.

For more details on Idelvion, see the prescribing information.
