Abstract Number: PB0616
Meeting: ISTH 2021 Congress
Background: Individualized treatment can be tailored by requirement of hemophilia patients . Pharmacokinetics (PK)-guided individualized treatment is important to avoid disability .
Aims: The aim of this study was to analyze whether PK-guided individual regimen impacts the cost of treatment.
Methods: 17 patients from our center’s registry were included in this study, which divided into individualized group (n=8) and non-individualized group (n=9) according to different treatment regimens after PK analysis. All patients received a single dose infusion of FVIII after a 72-hour washout period, post-infusion blood sample were collected at 9 h and 15 h, and the concentration of FVIII was detected. WAPPS system was used to calculate individual pharmacokinetic parameters. Amount of recombinant factor VIII usage, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) scores, number of joint bleeds, HJHS scores of joint rehabilitation and 6 major joint ultrasound scale scores (0-14 points) were collected in both groups for 6 months before and after PK test. SPSS 20.0 statistical software was used to analyze the differences in efficacy between and within groups using 2 Independent Samples Tests, and a significant difference was expressed at P<0.05.
Results: 17 patients had a median age of 21 (8-57) years and a median baseline FVIII:C activity of 0.6 (0.1-1.1) %. The number of bleeding (P= 0.020) and joint ultrasound scores (P=0.014) were significantly different in two groups, especially in the right elbow (P= 0.006). Although non-significantly difference was shown in HRQOL scores, the individualized group was significantly improved in social functioning (P= 0.031).Also there was no significant increase in FVIII consumption before and after individualized treatment.
Conclusions: Individualized treatment is expected to improve the quality of life by significantly reducing joint bleeds and improving social skills without significantly increasing the cost of additional FVIII consumption.
