LACHEN, Switzerland-Wednesday 6 November 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Octapharma announced today that the human fibrinogen concentrate fibryga® has received approval for use in treatment of acquired fibrinogen deficiency (AFD) in 15 European countries. The approval extends the market authorisation for fibryga®, which is already approved for use in patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency. The addition represents a major milestone for bleeding management in critical care settings.

Fibrinogen is a coagulation factor essential for blood clotting, and therefore to stop excessive bleeding. Unlike with rare congenital fibrinogen deficiencies, AFD arises when excessive blood loss, and so clotting, caused by trauma or major surgery use up the fibrinogen reserves in the blood. Fibrinogen replacement is a recommended first line therapy in the management of patients developing complications from uncontrolled bleeding.

Fibryga® is a highly puri ... Read more »

LACHEN, Switzerland-Saturday 2 November 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Octapharma has announced the publication of new data demonstrating that the fibrinogen concentrate fibryga® is an effective alternative to cryoprecipitate for patients with severe bleeding during cardiac surgery. The data were recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).1
