Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to symptom relief for an acute attack, as assessed by the patient [ Time Frame: Patients monitored for a minimum of 8 hrs or until stable ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in VAS score from pretreatment [ Time Frame: 2, 4 and 8 hours post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluation of global outcome of treatment using symptom severity score (by patient and investigator) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 hours post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of global improvement(by patient and investigator) [ Time Frame: 4 and 8 hours post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Global assessment of symptoms (by investigator) [ Time Frame: 2, 4 and 8 hours post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time(s) to initial symptom improvement and almost complete symptom relief [ Time Frame: Up to 5 days post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Time to reduction in symptom severity of laryngeal attacks [ Time Frame: Up to Day 5 post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to onset of symptom relief using VAS [ Time Frame: Patients monitored for a minimum of 8 hrs after first attack ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to onset of symptom relief for first attack using composite VAS for non-laryngeal and mild-moderate laryngeal attacks [ Time Frame: Patients monitored a minimum of 8 hrs after first attack ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to symptom relief using composite VAS for mild-moderate laryngeal attacks [ Time Frame: Patients monitored for a minimum of 8 hrs after first attack ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Each patient must meet the following criteria to be enrolled in this study.

  1. The patient is ≥18 years old at the time of informed consent.
  2. The patient has a documented diagnosis of HAE type I or II. The diagnosis will be confirmed either by documented decreased C4 levels and/or immunogenic or functional C1-INH deficiency results (<50% of normal levels) consistent with HAE types I and II or by medical history.
  3. The current HAE attack must be in the cutaneous, abdominal and/or laryngeal (inclusive of laryngeal and pharyngeal) areas.
  4. Cutaneous or abdominal HAE attacks must be moderate to very severe as determined by investigator global assessment at pre-treatment assessments
  5. The patient must report at least 1 VAS score ≥ 30mm
  6. The patient commences treatment within 6 hours of the attack becoming at least mild (laryngeal) or moderate (non-laryngeal) in severity, but not more than 12 hours after the onset of the attack.
  7. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative urine pregnancy test and must use appropriate methods to prevent pregnancy during their participation in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

Patients who meet any of the following criteria will be excluded from the study.

  1. The patient has a diagnosis of angioedema other than HAE type I or II.
  2. The patient has received previous treatment with icatibant.
  3. The patient has participated in a clinical trial and has received treatment with another investigational medicinal product within the past 30 days.
  4. The patient has received treatment with any pain medication since the onset of the current angioedema attack.
  5. The patient has received replacement therapy (fresh frozen plasma [FFP], C1-INH products) less than 5 days (120 hours) from the onset of the current angioedema attack.
  6. The patient is receiving treatment with angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors.
  7. Evidence of coronary artery disease based on medical history or screening examination in particular unstable angina pectoris or severe coronary heart disease;
  8. The patient has a serious concomitant illness or condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would be a contraindication for participation in the trial.
  9. The patient is pregnant or breastfeeding.
