What is Recombinate?

Recombinate is a recombinant factor VIII. It is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Baxter Healthcare Corporation and Wyeth BioPharma.

Recombinate [Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant)] is indicated for the perioperative management of patients with hemophilia A (classical hemophilia) for the prevention and control of hemorrhagic episodes. Hemophilia A is a genetic bleeding disorder characterized by hemorrhages, which may occur spontaneously or after minor trauma.

Recombinate (clotting factor) is a naturally occurring protein in the blood. People with hemophilia A have a deficiency in clotting factor VIII. Recombinant replaces clotting factor VIII in the blood. Recombinate can be of therapeutic value in patients with acquired Factor VIII inhibitors not exceeding 10 Bethesda Units per mL.

Recombinant Recombinate is not recommended for use in treating von Willebrand disease.

What doses of Recombinate are available?

Recombinate is available in injection form, in the following doses: 250[iU] in 5 mL.

Confirm Factor VIII deficiency prior to treatment and monitor for the development of Factor VIII inhibitors.

Store unmixed recombinant Recombinate in the original package in a refrigerator. Take the medicine out of the refrigerator and let it reach room temperature before preparing your dose. You may store unmixed recombinant Recombinate at room temperature. You must not return it to the refrigerator. Some brands of this medicine can be stored at room temperature for only a certain number of months, or until the expiration date (whichever comes first). Recombinant Recombinate requires reconstitution with a diluent (sterile water for injection) before use. Prepare an injection only when you are ready to give it.

Recombinant Recombinate is given as an infusion into a vein. The dosage is based on your medical condition, body weight, blood test results for your factor VIII levels, and response to treatment. Your body may develop antibodies to Recombinate, making it less effective. Call your doctor if this medicine becomes less effective in controlling your bleeding.

Please read the patient information provided and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
