Patient education.

Novo Nordisk believes in supporting patients with resources to help them better understand bleeding disorders. These educational materials are available to download, share with patients, or order for your office.

  • Hemophilia Dictionary

    This handy reference defines common terms used when talking about various bleeding disorders, with statistics and other facts that may help increase your patients’ understanding and awareness.

Materials available through a Novo Nordisk Hemophilia Therapy Manager (HTM).

The following items are available by contacting a Novo Nordisk HTM.

NovoSeven® RT (Coagulation Factor VIIa [Recombinant]) demo kit

This kit demonstrates the compact storage size and portability of NovoSeven® RT, and helps you show patients how quick it is to reconstitute a dose of NovoSeven® RT.

Patient starter kit

Patients can practice mixing a dose before they start treatment. This kit includes a sample device, bilingual (English/Spanish) infusion mat, sample kit with test product, introductory brochure, and web key that launches an instructional reconstitution video. The kit comes in a zippered carrying case.

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
