Abstract Number: PB0607
Meeting: ISTH 2021 Congress
Background: Both rFVIII-FS(Kogenate®) and BAY 81‐8973 (Kovaltry®) are unmodified, full‐length recombinant factor VIII (FVIII) indicated for prophylaxis and treatment of bleeds in patients with haemophilia A (HA). Both rFVIII’s safety and efficacy were established in clinical studies, however the real-world data of product switch in China is scarce.
Aims: Explore the efficacy and safety after product switching from rFVIII-FS(Kogenate®) to BAY 81‐8973 (Kovaltry®) in Chinese real-world clinical setting.
Methods: 24 patients under regularly follow-up with middle-dosed prophylaxis regimen were included. Data include annual bleeding rate(ABR), annual joint bleeding rate(AJBR), ultrasound score(HEAD-US-C ) and HJHS for six index joints(bilateral elbow, knee and ankle) was collected. All patients switch their product from rFVIII-FS(Kogenate®) to BAY 81‐8973 (Kovaltry®) since 2020 May. The data from 2019 January to 2020 December was used to conduct paired Wilcoxon test with SPSS 22.0.
Results: After product switching, the ABR significantly decreased from 8.9 to 5.9 (p=0.003) and AJBR significantly declined from 6.9 to 4.3 (p=0.012). (figure 1).
While the mean score of HJHS decreased 51.5% (from 25.7 to 16.9, p=0.006), the US score slightly lifted 10.3% after the switching. All patients are willing to accept the switch. No difference of the FVIII consumption was found. No inhibitor formation during the switch.
Conclusions: All these 24 patients benefit from the product switching (from rFVIII-FS(Kogenate®) to BAY 81‐8973 (Kovaltry®)) with less bleeds and better joint function while the joint structure is not reversable under intermediate-dose prophylaxis. With no extra FVIII consumption needed, BAY 81-8973(Kovaltry®) showed optimal efficiency which may contributed to its superior pharmacokinetic profiles. Further studies focus on PK comparison of these two products in Chinese real-world setting are needed.
