Pharma/Biotech Update: CSL Behring Submits New Drug to FDA

December 16, 2014; Posted by: WeBleed staff

After successful studies, CSL Behring submits application for FDA approval.


According to a recent news article released by the website MPR, CSL Behring is officially submitting a Biologistics License Application (BLA) to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the new factor IX, hemophilia B product called rIX-FP. So what does this mean?  CSL experienced successful Phase 2 & 3 studies recently that compared on-demand treatment to a weekly prophylaxis regimen  as well as the number of patients who developed inhibitors (antibodies) against factor IX.  In 2012, the FDA granted Orphan Drug designation to rIX-FP for the treatment and prophylaxis of bleeding episodes in patients with hemophilia B.

WeBleed will continue to post updates as the status and decision from the FDA becomes available.
