Detailed Important Risk Information
Prescribing Information (PI)
ADYNOVATE [Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), PEGylated] Important Information

ADYNOVATE, Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), PEGylated, is a human antihemophilic factor indicated in children and adults with hemophilia A (congenital factor VIII deficiency) for:

  • On-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes
  • Perioperative management
  • Routine prophylaxis to reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes

Limitation of Use

ADYNOVATE is not indicated for the treatment of von Willebrand disease.

ADVATE [Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant)] Important Information

ADVATE is a recombinant antihemophilic factor indicated for use in children and adults with hemophilia A (congenital factor VIII deficiency) for:

  • Control and prevention of bleeding episodes.
  • Perioperative management.
  • Routine prophylaxis to prevent or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes.

ADVATE is not indicated for the treatment of von Willebrand disease.


Neutralizing Antibodies
Neutralizing antibodies (inhibitors) have been reported following administration of ADVATE predominantly in previously untreated patients (PUPs) and previously minimally treated patients (MTPs). Monitor all patients for the development of factor VIII inhibitors by appropriate clinical observation and laboratory testing. If expected plasma factor VIII activity levels are not attained, or if bleeding is not controlled with an expected dose, perform an assay that measures factor VIII inhibitor concentration.
