Pediatrics: Half-lives are shorter, volumes of distribution are larger, and recovery is lower after XYNTHA administration in children. Higher or more frequent dosing may be needed. (8.4)
See 17 for PATIENT COUNSELING INFORMATION and FDA-approved patient labeling.
XYNTHA, Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), is indicated for use in adults and children with hemophilia A (congenital factor VIII deficiency) for:
XYNTHA does not contain von Willebrand factor, and therefore is not indicated in patients with von Willebrand's disease.
For intravenous use after reconstitution only.
The expected in vivo peak increase in factor VIII level expressed as IU/dL (or % of normal) can be estimated using the following formulas:
Dosage (International Units) = body weight (kg) × desired factor VIII rise (IU/dL or % of normal) × 0.5 (IU/kg per IU/dL)
IU/dL (or % of normal) = Total Dose (IU)/body weight (kg) × 2 [IU/dL]/[IU/kg]
On-demand treatment and Control of Bleeding Episodes
A guide for dosing XYNTHA for on-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes is provided in Table 1. Maintain the plasma factor VIII activity at or above the levels (in % of normal or in IU/dL) outlined in Table 1 for the indicated period.
A guide for dosing XYNTHA during surgery (perioperative management) is provided in Table 2. Maintain the plasma factor VIII activity level at or above the level (in % of normal or in IU/dL) outlined in Table 2 for the indicated period. Monitor the replacement therapy by means of plasma factor VIII activity.
For intravenous infusion after reconstitution only.
Inspect the final XYNTHA solution visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration. The solution should be clear to slightly opalescent and colorless. If it is not, discard the solution and use a new kit.
Administer XYNTHA solution using the infusion set included in the kit. Do not administer reconstituted XYNTHA in the same tubing or container with other medicinal products.
These instructions are for the use of only one XYNTHA vial kit with one XYNTHA SOLOFUSE Kit.
The instructions below are for the use of multiple XYNTHA SOLOFUSE kits with a 10 milliliter or larger luer lock syringe. For further information, please contact the Medical Information Department at Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, 1-800-438-1985.
Note: Luer-to-luer syringe connectors are not provided in these kits. Instruct patients to contact their XYNTHA supplier to order.
XYNTHA SOLOFUSE is available as a white to off-white lyophilized powder in the following nominal dosages:
Each XYNTHA SOLOFUSE has the actual recombinant factor VIII (rFVIII) potency in International Units stated on the label.
Allergic type hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, are possible with XYNTHA. Inform patients of the early signs or symptoms of hypersensitivity reactions (including hives [rash with itching], generalized urticaria, chest tightness, wheezing, and hypotension) and anaphylaxis. Discontinue XYNTHA if hypersensitivity symptoms occur and administer appropriate emergency treatment.
XYNTHA contains trace amounts of hamster proteins. Patients treated with this product may develop hypersensitivity to these non-human mammalian proteins.
Inhibitors have been reported following administration of XYNTHA. Monitor patients for the development of factor VIII inhibitors by appropriate clinical observations and laboratory tests. If expected factor VIII activity plasma levels are not attained, or if bleeding is not controlled with an appropriate dose, perform an assay that measures factor VIII inhibitor concentration to determine if a factor VIII inhibitor is present [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12
The most common adverse reactions (≥10%) with XYNTHA in adult and pediatric previously treated patients (PTPs) were headache, arthralgia, pyrexia, and cough.
Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in clinical practice.
XYNTHA was evaluated in five completed clinical studies (N=178), comprising four studies with adult and pediatric PTPs.
The safety and efficacy of XYNTHA was evaluated in two completed pivotal studies. In the first study (n=94), safety and efficacy were examined in PTPs with severe to moderately severe hemophilia A (factor VIII activity in plasma [FVIII:C] ≤2%) who received XYNTHA for routine prophylaxis and on-demand treatment. Ninety-four subjects received at least one dose of XYNTHA, resulting in a total of 6,775 infusions [see Clinical Studies (14)]. The second study (n=30) examined the use of XYNTHA for surgical prophylaxis in PTPs with severe to moderately severe hemophilia A (FVIII:C ≤2%) who required elective major surgery and were expected to receive XYNTHA replacement therapy for at least 6 days post-surgery. All subjects received at least one dose of XYNTHA, resulting in 1,161 infusions. One subject received XYNTHA for a pre-surgery pharmacokinetic assessment only and did not undergo surgery [see Clinical Studies (14)].
Across all studies, safety was evaluated in 72 pediatric PTPs <17 years of age (46 subjects, <6 years of age (4 subjects were 0 to <2 years of age), 4 subjects 6 to <12 years of age, and 22 adolescents, 12 to <17 years of age). A total of 13,109 infusions of XYNTHA were administered with a median dose per infusion of 28 IU/kg (min-max: 6–108 IU/kg).
Across all studies, the most common adverse reactions (≥10%) with XYNTHA in adult and pediatric PTPs were headache (24%), arthralgia (23%), pyrexia (23%), and cough (12%). Other adverse reactions reported in ≥5% of subjects were: diarrhea (8%), vomiting (8%), and asthenia (6%).
There is a potential for immunogenicity with therapeutic proteins. The development of factor VIII inhibitors with XYNTHA was evaluated in 167 adult and pediatric PTPs with at least 50 exposure days (EDs). Laboratory-based assessments for FVIII inhibitor (partial Nijmegen modification of the Bethesda inhibitor assay) were conducted in the clinical studies. The criterion for a positive FVIII result test result was ≥0.6 BU/mL. Across all studies, 4 subjects developed factor VIII inhibitors (2.4%).
The completed clinical studies for XYNTHA examined 178 subjects (30 for surgical prophylaxis) who had previously been treated with factor VIII (PTPs). In the first safety and efficacy study, factor VIII inhibitors were detected in two of 89 subjects (2.2%) who completed ≥50 EDs. In a Bayesian statistical analysis, results from this study were used to update PTP results from a prior supporting study using XYNTHA manufactured at the initial facility (with one de novo and two recurrent inhibitors observed in 110 subjects) and the experience with predecessor product (with one inhibitor observed in 113 subjects). The Bayesian analysis indicated that the population inhibitor rate for XYNTHA, an estimate of the 95% upper limit of the true inhibitor rate, was 4.17%.
None of the PTPs developed anti-CHO (Chinese hamster ovary) or anti-TN8.2 antibodies. One PTP developed anti-FVIII antibodies; but, this subject did not develop an inhibitor.
In the surgery study, one low titer persistent inhibitor and one transient false-positive inhibitor were reported. In this study, one surgical subject developed anti-CHO cell antibodies with no associated allergic reaction. One subject developed anti-FVIII antibodies; but, this subject did not develop an inhibitor.
Across all studies, immunogenicity was evaluated in 64 pediatric PTPs <17 years of age with at least 50 EDs (43 children <6 years of age, 4 subjects 6 to <12 years of age, and 17 adolescents, 12 to <17 years of age). Of these, 2 pediatric subjects developed an inhibitor.
The detection of antibody formation is highly dependent on the sensitivity and specificity of the assay. Additionally, the observed incidence of antibody, including neutralizing antibody, positivity in an assay may be influenced by several factors, including assay methodology, sample handling, timing of sample collection, concomitant medications, and underlying disease. For these reasons, comparisons of the incidence of antibodies to XYNTHA with the incidence of antibodies to other products may be misleading.
Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.
The following postmarketing adverse reaction has been reported for XYNTHA:
Inadequate therapeutic response
It is not known whether XYNTHA can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with XYNTHA.
There is no information available on the effect of factor VIII replacement therapy on labor and delivery. XYNTHA should be used only if clinically indicated.
In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2–4% and 15–20%, respectively.
There is no information regarding the presence of XYNTHA in human milk, the effect on the breastfed infant, or the effects on milk production. The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother's clinical need for XYNTHA and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from XYNTHA or from the underlying maternal condition.
Safety and efficacy with XYNTHA were evaluated in clinical studies in 68 pediatric subjects <17 years of age (18 subjects aged 12 to <17 years, 50 subjects aged ≤12 years). There were no apparent differences in the efficacy and safety in pediatric subjects as compared to adults [see Adverse Reactions (6.1) and Clinical Studies (14)].
In comparison to the pharmacokinetic parameters reported in adults, children have shorter half-lives, larger volumes of distribution and lower recovery of factor VIII after XYNTHA administration. The clearance (based on per kg body weight) is approximately 40% higher in children. Higher or more frequent doses may be required to account for the observed differences in pharmacokinetic parameters [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
Clinical studies of XYNTHA did not include sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 and over to determine whether they respond differently from younger subjects. Other reported clinical experience has not identified differences in responses between the elderly and younger patients. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy.
The active ingredient in XYNTHA, Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), is a recombinant antihemophilic factor (rAHF), also called coagulation factor VIII, which is produced by recombinant DNA technology. It is secreted by a genetically engineered Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell line. The cell line is grown in a chemically defined cell culture medium that contains recombinant insulin, but does not contain any materials derived from human or animal sources.
The rAHF in XYNTHA is a purified glycoprotein, with an approximate molecular mass of 170 kDa consisting of 1,438 amino acids, which does not contain the B-domain.13 The amino acid sequence of the rAHF is comparable to the 90 + 80 kDa form of human coagulation factor VIII.
The purification process uses a series of chromatography steps, one of which is based on affinity chromatography using a patented synthetic peptide affinity ligand.14 The process also includes a solvent-detergent viral inactivation step and a virus-retaining nanofiltration step.
The potency expressed in International Units (IU) is determined using the chromogenic assay of the European Pharmacopoeia. The Wyeth manufacturing reference standard for potency has been calibrated against the World Health Organization (WHO) International Standard for factor VIII activity using the one-stage clotting assay. The specific activity of XYNTHA is 5,500 to 9,900 IU per milligram of protein.
XYNTHA is formulated as a sterile, nonpyrogenic, no preservative, lyophilized powder preparation for intravenous injection. Each single-use prefilled dual-chamber syringe (named XYNTHA SOLOFUSE) contains nominally 250, 500, 1000, 2000, or 3000 IU of XYNTHA. Upon reconstitution, the product is a clear to slightly opalescent, colorless solution that contains sodium chloride, sucrose, L-histidine, calcium chloride and polysorbate 80.
XYNTHA temporarily replaces the missing clotting factor VIII that is needed for effective hemostasis.
The activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) is prolonged in patients with hemophilia. Determination of aPTT is a conventional in vitro assay for biological activity of factor VIII. Treatment with XYNTHA normalizes the aPTT over the effective dosing period.
The pharmacokinetic parameters of XYNTHA in 30 PTPs 12 to 60 years old, who received a single infusion of 50 IU/kg XYNTHA are summarized in Table 3.
In addition, 25 of the same subjects later received a single infusion of 50 IU/kg of XYNTHA for a 6-month follow-up pharmacokinetic study. The parameters were comparable between baseline and 6 months, indicating no time-dependent changes in the pharmacokinetics of XYNTHA.
In a separate study, 8 of 30 subjects at least 12 years old with hemophilia A undergoing elective major surgery received a single 50 IU/kg infusion of XYNTHA. The pharmacokinetic parameters in these subjects are also summarized in Table 3.
Table 4 shows the pharmacokinetic parameters of nine children; four aged 14 or 15 years of age, who are also included in the summary for the adults above, along with five children aged 3.7–5.8 years after single 50 IU/kg doses of XYNTHA. Compared to adults, the half-life of XYNTHA is shorter in children and the clearance (based on per kg body weight) is approximately 40% higher in children.
No studies have been conducted with XYNTHA to assess its mutagenic or carcinogenic potential. XYNTHA has been shown to be comparable to the predecessor product with respect to its biochemical and physicochemical properties, as well as its nonclinical in vivo pharmacology and toxicology. By inference, predecessor product and XYNTHA would be expected to have equivalent mutagenic and carcinogenic potential. The predecessor product has been shown to be nongenotoxic in the mouse micronucleus assay. No studies have been conducted in animals to assess impairment of fertility or fetal development.
Preclinical studies evaluating XYNTHA in hemophilia A dogs without inhibitors demonstrated safe and effective restoration of hemostasis. XYNTHA demonstrated a toxicological profile that was similar to the toxicological profile observed with the predecessor product. Toxicity associated with XYNTHA was primarily associated with anti-FVIII neutralizing antibody generation first detectable at 15 days of repeat dosing in high (approximately 735 IU/kg/day) level-dosed, non-human primates.
Three completed multicenter, open-label studies support the analysis of safety and efficacy of XYNTHA in on-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes and perioperative management, and routine prophylaxis in PTPs with hemophilia A. These completed clinical studies for XYNTHA examined 174 PTP subjects, 94 from the first study, and 50 from a second study, for on-demand treatment and routine prophylaxis and 30 from a third study for surgical prophylaxis. Subjects with severe to moderately severe hemophilia A (FVIII:C ≤2%) and no history of FVIII inhibitors were eligible for the trials.
On-demand Treatment and Control of Bleeding Episodes
On-demand treatment in adolescents and adults
Ninety-four (94) subjects, 12 years of age and older received XYNTHA in a routine prophylaxis treatment regimen with on-demand treatment administered as clinically indicated. All 94 subjects were treated with at least one dose and all are included in the intent-to-treat (ITT) population. Eighty-nine (89) subjects accrued ≥50 EDs. Median age for the 94 treated subjects was 24 years (mean 28 and min-max: 12–60 years).
Of these 94 subjects, 30 evaluable subjects participated in a randomized crossover pharmacokinetics substudy. Twenty-five (25/30) of these subjects with FVIII:C ≤1% completed both the first (PK1) and the second (PK2) pharmacokinetic assessments [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].16
Fifty-three subjects (53/94) received XYNTHA on-demand treatment for a total of 187 bleeding episodes. Seven of these bleeding episodes occurred in subjects prior to switching to a prophylaxis treatment regimen. One hundred ten of 180 bleeds (110/180 or 61%) occurred ≤48 hours after the last dose and 39% (70/180 bleeds) occurred >48 hours after the last dose. The majority of bleeds reported to occur ≤48 hours after the last prophylaxis dose were traumatic (64/110 bleeds or 58%). Forty-two bleeds (42/70 or 60%) reported to occur >48 hours after the last prophylaxis dose were spontaneous. The on-demand treatment dosing regimen was determined by the investigator. The median dose for on-demand treatment was 31 IU/kg (min-max: 6–74 IU/kg) and the median exposure per subject was 3 days (min-max: 1–26).
The majority of bleeding episodes (173/187 or 93%) resolved with 1 or 2 infusions (Table 5). One hundred thirty-two of 187 bleeding episodes (132/187 or 71%) treated with XYNTHA were rated excellent or good in their response to initial treatment, 45 (24%) were rated moderate. Five (3%) were rated no response, and 5 (3%) were not rated.
Of the 94 subjects described above, in the first completed open-label safety and efficacy study of XYNTHA, 18 were adolescent subjects 12 to <17 years of age with severe to moderately severe hemophilia A (FVIII:C ≤2%). Ten (10) of these adolescent subjects, received XYNTHA for the on-demand treatment of 66 bleeding episodes, with the majority of the bleeding episodes (63/66 or 95%) resolving with 1 or 2 infusions. The response to infusion was rated on a pre-specified 4 point hemostatic efficacy scale. Thirty-eight (38) of 66 bleeding episodes (58%) were rated excellent or good in their response to initial treatment, 24 (36%) were rated as moderate, and 4 (6%) were not rated. The median dose per on demand infusion was 47 IU/kg (min-max: 24–74).
On-demand treatment in children
Additional data for 50 subjects are available from a second safety and efficacy study of XYNTHA in children (≤12 years of age) with severe to moderately severe hemophilia A (FVIII:C ≤2%). Of the 50 subjects, 38 subjects received XYNTHA for on-demand and follow-up treatment of 562 bleeding episodes with the majority of the bleeding episodes (518/562 or 92%) resolving with 1 or 2 infusions. Of 559 bleeding episodes treated with XYNTHA with response assessments to the first infusion, 526 (94%) were rated excellent or good in their response to initial treatment and 27 (5%) were rated as moderate. The median dose per on-demand infusion was 28 IU/kg (min-max: 10–92).
In a study (n=30) for surgical prophylaxis in subjects with hemophilia A, XYNTHA was administered to 25 efficacy-evaluable PTPs undergoing major surgical procedures (11 total knee replacements, 1 hip replacement, 5 synovectomies, 1 left ulnar nerve transposition release, 1 ventral hernia repair/scar revision, 1 knee arthroscopy, 1 revision and debridement of the knee after a total knee replacement, 1 hip arthroplasty revision, 1 stapes replacement, 1 ankle arthrodesis, and 1 pseudotumor excision).17
The results of the hemostatic efficacy ratings for these subjects are presented in Table 6. Investigator's ratings of efficacy at the end of surgery and at the end of the initial postoperative period were excellent or good for all assessments. Intraoperative blood loss was reported as "normal" or "absent" for all subjects. Thirteen of the subjects (13/25 or 52%) had blood loss in the postoperative period. The postoperative blood loss was rated as "normal" for ten of these cases while three cases were rated "abnormal" (1 due to hemorrhage following surgical trauma to the epigastric artery, 1 due to an 800 mL blood loss after hip replacement surgery, and 1 after an elbow synovectomy where the blood loss could not be measured by the investigator).
One hundred and two (102) subjects (94 subjects ≥12 years of age and 8 subjects <12 years of age) received XYNTHA for routine prophylaxis, for comparison of annualized bleeding rate (ABR) to on-demand treatment alone as a part of 2 completed studies. XYNTHA was administered for routine prophylaxis at a dose of 25 ± 5 IU/kg every other day (in subjects <12 years of age) or 30 ± 5 IU/kg administered 3 times weekly (in subjects 12 years of age or older), with provisions for dose escalation based on pre-specified criteria (over a 4-week period, 2 spontaneous bleeds into a major joint and/or target joint, or 3 or more spontaneous bleeding episodes in any location). Among these 102 subjects, 7 dose escalations were prescribed for 6 subjects.
In subjects ≥12 years, 42 subjects (42/94 or 45%) reported no bleeding while on routine prophylaxis. The mean±SD total ABR during routine prophylaxis was 4.0±6.64 with median (min-max) of 1.9 (0.0–44.2). The mean ABR for subjects during routine prophylaxis was 88% lower than the mean ABR for subjects during on-demand treatment (Table 7).
In subjects <12 years, 4 subjects (4/8 or 50%) reported no bleeding while on routine prophylaxis. The mean±SD total ABR during routine prophylaxis was 1.5±2.2 with median (min-max) of 0.6 (0.0–6.2). The mean ABR for subjects during routine prophylaxis was 97% lower than the mean ABR for subjects during on-demand treatment (Table 7).
