What is Eloctate?
Eloctate is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Bioverativ Therapeutics Inc., a Sanofi company.
Eloctate is an antihemophilic Factor (recombinant), Fc fusion protein. It is a recombinant DNA-derived, antihemophilic factor used in adults and adolescents with Hemophilia A (congenital Factor VIII deficiency) for:
- On-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes
- Perioperative management of bleeding
- Routine prophylaxis to reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes
Eloctate is not recommended for the treatment of von Willebrand disease.
What doses of Eloctate are available?
Eloctate is available in injection form, in the following doses: nominally 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000, or 3000 IU, lyophilized powder in single-use vials for reconstitution.
For intravenous use after reconstitution only. One unit per kilogram of body weight will raise the FVIII level by 2% IU/dL. For on-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes and perioperative management, calculate the dose using the following formulas:
- Estimated increment of FVIII (IU/dL or % of normal) = [Total Dose (IU)/body weight (kg)] x 2 (IU/dL per IU/kg)
- Or required dose (IU) = body weight (kg) x desired FVIII rise (IU/dL or % of normal) x 0.5 (IU/kg per IU/dL)
- For routine prophylaxis – 50 IU/kg every 4 days. Adjust the dose based on patient response
- For routine prophylaxis in children less than 6 years of age – 50 IU/kg twice weekly. Adjust the dose based on patient response
Please see the full prescribing information, and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Eloctate active ingredients
B-domain deleted recombinant Factor VIII, Fc fusion protein (BDD-rFVIIIFc) is the active ingredient in Eloctate.
Eloctate contains the Fc region of human immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1). This binds to the neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn). FcRn is part of a naturally occurring pathway that delays the lysosomal breakdown of immunoglobulins by cycling them back into circulation and prolonging their plasma half-life.
Eloctate side effects
The most common side effects of Eloctate in clinical trials include:
- Myalgia, headache
In rare instances, Eloctate can cause more serious adverse reactions. These can include:
- Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis
- Development of Factor VIII neutralizing antibodies (inhibitors) can occur. If plasma Factor VIII activity levels are not attained, or if bleeding is not controlled with an appropriate dose, carry out an assay that measures Factor VIII inhibitor concentration
Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Eloctate to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
