Date:10/4/2010

HOBOKEN, N.J., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Octapharma USA has launched a comprehensive Web site for wilate® at www.wilateusa.com to provide von Willebrand disease healthcare professionals and patients with easily accessible information, news and updates. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted orphan drug exclusivity for wilate® (von Willebrand Factor/Factor VIII Concentrate, Human), the first replacement therapy developed specifically for von Willebrand Disease (VWD).

The web resource provides the VWD community with a dynamic and educational on-line experience designed to inspire site visitors to acquire the knowledge and seek additional information on wilate® from their healthcare provider or Octapharma. According to the National Institutes of Health, VWD is the most common inherited bleeding disorder and occurs in about 1 out of every 100 to 1,000 people.

The FDA has approved wilate® for the treatment of spontaneous or trauma-induced bleeding episodes in patients with severe VWD as well as in patients with mild or moderate forms of the illness in whom the use of desmopressin is known or suspected to be ineffective or contraindicated.
