In the pediatric study, the prophylactic efficacy of RIXUBIS was studied in 23 previously treated patients (PTPs) between 1.8 and 11.8 years with severe or moderately severe hemophilia B for a mean treatment duration of 7.7 ± 1.08 months.1,3

Annual bleed rate is the number of bleeds a person experiences over the course of one year. If you don't have a year's worth of bleeds tracked, simply take the number of bleeds that you had in the last month and multiply by 12 as an estimate, which is your annualized bleed rate (ABR).
The efficacy of RIXUBIS was evaluated in a pediatric study, in which a total of 23 male PTPs between 1.8 and 11.8 years of age (mean age 7.10 years), with 11 subjects <6 years of age, received RIXUBIS for routine prophylaxis and control of bleeding episodes.1
Excellent is defined as full relief of pain and cessation of objective signs of bleeding after a single infusion; no additional infusion is required for the control of bleeding; Good is defined as definite pain relief and/or improvement in signs of bleeding after a single infusion; possibly requires more than one infusion for complete resolution.1
Mean incremental recovery for RIXUBIS 30 minutes after infusion at trial completion/termination.
After an infusion, your doctor may measure or keep track of the amount of factor IX in your blood. One such measure is called incremental recovery, or simply, recovery. Recovery is important to know because it helps your doctor determine the proper dose of factor your body needs.
Recovery is measured by taking a blood test, also called an assay. Recovery is different for every person and may change for you over time. It can be influenced by age and weight and differs based on the factor product used.4-7
