Short description
Pharmacodynamic properties
(Mechanism of action; Source EMA document)
When infused into a haemophilia patient, octocog alfa binds to endogenous von Willebrand Factor in the patient’s circulation. Activated factor VIII acts as a Cofactor for activated Factor IX, accelerating the conversion of Factor X to activated Factor X. Activated Factor X converts prothrombin to thrombin. Thrombin then converts fibrinogen into fibrin and a clot can be formed.
Haemophilia A is a sex-linked hereditary disorder of blood coagulation due to decreased levels of factor VIII activity and results in profuse bleeding into joints, muscles or internal organs, either spontaneously or as a result of accidental or surgical trauma. The plasma levels of factor VIII are increased by replacement therapy, thereby enabling a temporary correction of the factor VIII deficiency and correction of the bleeding tendency.
