Further study details as provided by CSL Behring:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The frequency of related Adverse Events (AEs) to rVIIa-FP. [ Time Frame: 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Number of subjects who develop inhibitors against Factor VII (FVII). [ Time Frame: 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Number of subjects who develop antibodies against rVIIa-FP. [ Time Frame: 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under curve to the last sample with quantifiable drug concentration (AUC0-t) of a single dose of rVIIa-FP [ Time Frame: 120 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Half- life (t1/2) of a single dose of rVIIa-FP [ Time Frame: 120 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incremental recovery (IR) of rVIIa-FP [ Time Frame: 120 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clearance (Cl) of a single dose of rVIIa-FP [ Time Frame: 120 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: rVIIa-FP Biological: rVIIa-FP
Recombinant VIIa-FP (rVIIa-FP) is a fusion protein linking coagulation factor VIIa with albumin and will be administered by intravenous infusion in escalating doses up to 1000 mcg/kg. Participants will receive pre-treatment with an oral anticoagulant starting 7 days prior to administration of study product and continuing for 7 days after study product has been administered.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo (0.9% normal saline) Biological: Placebo (0.9% normal saline)
Placebo will be administered by intravenous infusion. Participants will receive pre-treatment with an oral anticoagulant starting 7 days prior to administration of placebo and continuing for 7 days after placebo has been administered.
