Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, announced today that data from HAVEN 1, a Phase III study evaluating once-weekly subcutaneous emicizumab prophylaxis (preventative) in adults and adolescents with hemophilia A with inhibitors, were published in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). The primary endpoint showed a clinically meaningful and statistically significant reduction in treated bleeds of 87 percent (risk rate [RR]=0.13, p<0.0001) with emicizumab prophylaxis compared with on-demand (no prophylaxis; episodic use only) bypassing agents (BPAs). Data from HAVEN 1 and the interim analysis of the Phase III HAVEN 2 study of emicizumab in children are being presented at the 26th International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) Congress today.
