ALPROLIX is the only extended half-life Factor IX therapy chosen by over 1,100 people in the US, ‡ and proven over 4 years of real-world experience.
The recommended adult and adolescent starting regimen is every 7 or 10 days with the potential to extend to 14 days based on your response.§

*The overall median annual bleed rate (ABR) in the weekly arm was 3 bleeds per year (n=61) and 1.4 bleeds per year in the 10 day arm (n=26).
†ALPROLIX has been proven to help patients prevent bleeding episodes using a prophylaxis regimen.
