HFA received the following update from Bayer.
For more than 25 years, Bayer has remained committed to supporting patients around the world by keeping a constant pulse on their evolving needs as well as those of their caregivers and healthcare providers (HCPs). Recognizing the growing shift in patient use toward more recent products, such as Kovaltry® (Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant)) and Jivi® (Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), PEGylated-aucl), Bayer has made the decision to discontinue Kogenate® FS (Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant)) in the United States.
Keeping the needs of patients in mind, Bayer is keenly aware that they will need sufficient time to work with their HCP to make decisions about their next treatment. The timing of discontinuation will vary by Kogenate FS vial size. Customer demand may lead to depletion of the larger vial sizes of Kogenate FS during the fall of 2022. Remaining Kogenate FS vial sizes are anticipated to be available into 2023.
As Kogenate FS patients and their caregivers embark on the next step of their journey, Bayer is committed to supporting them. Additionally, we have set up a website (explore.bayer.com) and a dedicated Kogenate FS hotline for anyone who has questions regarding this discontinuation, (1-833-40-BAYER), which is available Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 8:00pm ET.
