"Our first therapies were developed for the hemophilia community and today most hemophilia patient advocates say that inhibitor development is the greatest obstacle to effective treatment. Octapharma is focused on introducing innovative development strategies that will help improve patient quality of life by finding an effective treatment and developing products to overcome this obstacle."

The Octapharma-sponsored symposium "Prevention and Eradication of FVIII Inhibitors: Bridging Lab and Field Research" was chaired by David Lillicrap, M.D., Professor of Pathology and Molecular Medicine at Queen's University in Ontario, Canada, and Georges E. Rivard, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics at Universite de Montreal. The symposium provided an opportunity for discussing recent data supporting the use of von Willebrand factor (VWF)/FVIII concentrates for Immune Tolerance Induction (ITI) in hemophilia A patients with poor prognosis for a successful ITI outcome.

Presenters reviewed a balanced mix of clinical, preclinical and basic data on the role of the presence of VWF in FVIII concentrates and the clinical experience on prevention and eradication of FVIII inhibitors. In addition, the most recent prospective and retrospective clinical data obtained with different classes of FVIII concentrates used for ITI treatment were presented along with an update on the progress of the ongoing prospective study designed to further investigate the risk of FVIII inhibitor development in previously untreated patients with hemophilia.
