Statement of Need

In order to prevent and treat bleeding in patients with hemophilia A, the activity of the replaced clotting factor VIII must reach or exceed a target level over a period of time. Pharmacokinetic (PK) measures are therefore used to determine the dosing regiment of different factor VIII replacement products. Recently, extended half-life recombinant factor VIII products with improved PK profiles have been approved and these reduce treatment burden and improve treatment adherence.

In this CME Outfitters live and on-demand webcast, renowned hematologists will discuss the clinical significance of the results of the head-to-head comparison study of PK profiles of extended half-life factor VIII products including the application of population PK models and shared decision-making to provide personalized hemophilia A therapy.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Summarize the comparative PK data and the clinical significance of popPK studies on factor VIII replacement therapies.
  • Apply popPK models to determine individualized dosing regiments for patients with hemophilia A.
  • Integrate approaches for SDM to develop patient-centered, PK-based treatment plans for patients with hemophilia A.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE credit:

  • Summarize the comparative PK data and the clinical significance of popPK studies on factor VIII replacement therapies.
  • Explain popPK models that can determine individualized dosing regimens for patients with hemophilia A.
  • Describe approaches for SDM to develop patient-centered, PK-based treatment plans for patients with hemophilia A.

Financial Support
