Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incremental recovery of rIX-FP [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Half-life (t1/2) of a single dose of rIX-FP [ Time Frame: Approximately 10 to 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Area under the curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: Approximately 10 to 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUC to the last sample with quantifiable drug concentration (AUC0-t) of a single dose of rIX-FP

  • Clearance of a single dose of rIX-FP [ Time Frame: Approximately 10 to 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of subjects developing Factor IX (FIX) inhibitors [ Time Frame: Approximately 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The frequency of related adverse events [ Time Frame: Approximately 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Number of subjects developing antibodies against rIX-FP [ Time Frame: Approximately 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Proportion of bleeding episodes requiring one, two or more than two infusions of rIX-FP to achieve hemostasis [ Time Frame: Approximately 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Consumption of rIX-FP [ Time Frame: Approximately 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Recombinant IX-FP consumed expressed as:

    • number of infusions per month and per year
    • IU/kg per month, per year and per event

Estimated Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: September 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: rIX-FP
Recombinant Fusion Protein Linking Coagulation Factor IX with Albumin (rIX-FP) will be administered by IV infusion as routine weekly prophylaxis and episodic treatment for bleeding episodes.
