What NovoSeven® RT means to your patients.

The experience continues

30 years of research and long-term clinical experiences; 647 patients and 2,785 episodes treated in registrational studies and ~400 successful surgeries and procedures.1-23,a-c

Portability to fit into your patients’ lives

Room temperature stable for fast access to treatment. Everything patients need to reconstitute is in one small box.1,d

Able to quickly treat bleeds when they occur

Rapid administration and infusion, leading to rapid activity.1,24

Proven efficacy

Proven effective for bleed resolution and surgery across 4 indications.1

A well-established safety profile

A low rate of thrombotic events based on clinical trials and registries.1

  • 0.2% of bleeding episodes in patients with CHwI
  • 4% of patients with AH
  • <0.2% in patients with GT

And NovoSeven® RT is not made from human serum or human proteins.1

a1988: compassionate use initiated in the United States; 1999: FDA approval received for CHwI.17
bIncludes bleeding episodes, major and minor surgical procedures, traumatic injuries, and prophylaxis regimens.
cSuccess was defined differently in each study.
dPrior to reconstitution, store NovoSeven® RT powder and histidine diluent between 36-77˚F. After reconstitution, store NovoSeven® RT either at room temperature or refrigerated for up to 3 hours. Do not freeze reconstituted NovoSeven® RT or store in syringes.

Patients can use MixPro® to
reconstitute NovoSeven® RT.

Selected Important Safety Information

WARNING: THROMBOSIS

  • Serious arterial and venous thrombotic events following administration of NovoSeven® RT have been reported
  • Discuss the risks and explain the signs and symptoms of thrombotic and thromboembolic events to patients who will receive NovoSeven® RT
  • Monitor patients for signs or symptoms of activation of the coagulation system and for thrombosis

Warnings and Precautions

  • Serious arterial and venous thrombotic events have been reported in clinical trials and postmarketing surveillance
  • Patients with congenital hemophilia receiving concomitant treatment with aPCCs (activated prothrombin complex concentrates), older patients particularly with acquired hemophilia and receiving other hemostatic agents, and patients with a history of cardiac and vascular disease may have an increased risk of developing thrombotic events

Indications and Usage

NovoSeven® RT (coagulation Factor VIIa, recombinant) is a coagulation factor indicated for:

  • Treatment of bleeding episodes and perioperative management in adults and children with hemophilia A or B with inhibitors, congenital Factor VII (FVII) deficiency, and Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia with refractoriness to platelet transfusions, with or without antibodies to platelets
  • Treatment of bleeding episodes and perioperative management in adults with acquired hemophilia

Important Safety Information

WARNING: THROMBOSIS

  • Serious arterial and venous thrombotic events following administration of NovoSeven® RT have been reported
  • Discuss the risks and explain the signs and symptoms of thrombotic and thromboembolic events to patients who will receive NovoSeven® RT
  • Monitor patients for signs or symptoms of activation of the coagulation system and for thrombosis

Warnings and Precautions

  • Serious arterial and venous thrombotic events have been reported in clinical trials and postmarketing surveillance
  • Patients with congenital hemophilia receiving concomitant treatment with aPCCs (activated prothrombin complex concentrates), older patients particularly with acquired hemophilia and receiving other hemostatic agents, and patients with a history of cardiac and vascular disease may have an increased risk of developing thrombotic events
  • Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, can occur with NovoSeven® RT. Patients with a known hypersensitivity to mouse, hamster, or bovine proteins may be at a higher risk of hypersensitivity reactions. Discontinue infusion and administer appropriate treatment when hypersensitivity reactions occur
  • Factor VII deficient patients should be monitored for prothrombin time (PT) and factor VII coagulant activity (FVII:C). If FVII:C fails to reach the expected level, or PT is not corrected, or bleeding is not controlled after treatment with the recommended doses, antibody formation may be suspected and analysis for antibodies should be performed
  • Laboratory coagulation parameters (PT/INR, aPTT, FVII:C) have shown no direct correlation to achieving hemostasis

Adverse Reactions

  • The most common and serious adverse reactions in clinical trials are thrombotic events. Thrombotic adverse reactions following the administration of NovoSeven® RT in clinical trials occurred in 4% of patients with acquired hemophilia and 0.2% of bleeding episodes in patients with congenital hemophilia

Drug Interactions

  • Thrombosis may occur if NovoSeven® RT is administered concomitantly with Coagulation Factor XIII
