Combination Therapy of Low Doses of rFVIIa and FEIBA for Severe Hemophilia A Patients With an Inhibitor to Factor VIII

Patients with severe hemophilia and inhibitors can be treated effectively by Activated Prothrombin Complex Concentrates (APCC, eg. FEIBA) or High dose recombinant factor VIIa (rFVIIa). Rarely, such patients develop refractoriness to these products for whom therapy with sequential FEIBA and rFVIIa has been recently suggested.

The impetus for the present report was a hemophilia A patient with high titer inhibitor (1300BU) who had life threatening hematuria that was resistant to repeated doses of 400µg/kg rFVIIa up to a cumulative dose of 1200 µg/kg given over 6-9 hours.

Thrombin generation (TG) tested in vitro was consistent with resistance to high concentrations of rFVIIa but yielded good response to combinations of low doses of rFVIIa+FEIBA. In a desperate attempt to control the bleeding, concomitant therapy of 25 U/kg FEIBA and 40µg/kg rFVIIa was infused and resulted in arrest of bleeding within minutes. Over a span of about one year the patient has been successfully treated by this combination for more than 200 bleeding episodes in muscles and joints.

Inhibitor patients with HR inhibitors were eligible for study enrollment. After consent blood was drawn and ex- vivo spiked with rFVIIa/FEIBA and combinations, assayed by thrombin generation tests.

The combination yielding sufficient hemostasis was depicted for patients' therapy of future bleeding episodes.

Following actual therapy hemostasis and safety parameters were monitored.
