2X weekly prophylactic dosing can help align factor levels with the times you are physically active1
Talk to your doctor about which infusion days and dosage may be recommended for you. Your doctor will determine your dosage based on your age, weight, and bleeding pattern.
Prophylactic efficacy of RIXUBIS was studied in 23 previously treated patients (PTPs) between 1.8 and 11.8 years of age with severe or moderately severe hemophilia B for a mean treatment duration of 7.7 months.1,2
Routine prophylactic treatment helped patients achieve a low annualized bleed rate (ABR)1
Median ABR (range: 0.0-2.0)
Median ABR (range: 0.0-7.2)
Many patients (9 out of 23) taking RIXUBIS® did not bleed over the course of the clinical study1
- In this study, many patients experienced 0 bleeds with twice-weekly RIXUBIS prophylaxis.1,2
Most bleeds (23 out of 26) were resolved with 1 to 2 infusions1
With RIXUBIS, 96.2% of bleeding episodes were rated as having excellent or good bleed resolution.*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.

The clinical trial demonstrated that recovery levels were consistent over time across all patient groups1
WHAT DOES RECOVERY MEAN?
Recovery is the name for the relative amount of factor IX in the bloodstream immediately after infusing. An average recovery is about 50%.3 Factor levels gradually decrease following infusion. 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.4,5
Talk to your doctor about what recovery levels mean for you.
