The science of ALPROLIX

Fc Fusion

A NATURAL PATHWAY TO EXTEND FACTOR IN YOUR BLOODSTREAM

1. Bind

Naturally produced Factor IX flows through the bloodstream and enters cells within your body; eventually breaking it down.

The Fc portion of ALPROLIX allows it to bind with an Fc receptor already in your body.

2. Redirect

The binding with Fc receptor redirects ALPROLIX back towards the bloodstream to protect ALPROLIX from being broken down inside the cell.

3. Recirculate

By using the natural Fc process, ALPROLIX is able to recirculate in the body longer. Eventually ALPROLIX is broken down, but without Fc Fusion, it wouldn't be able to recirculate in the bloodstream to extend the time you are protected* from bleeds.

*ALPROLIX has been proven to help patients prevent bleeding episodes using a prophylaxis regimen.

VOLUME OF DISTRIBUTION

ALPROLIX is an EXTENDED HALF-LIFE Factor IX product that mirrors how naturally occurring Factor IX works. It is designed with Fc Fusion which allows ALPROLIX to remain in the body for an extended period of time. Additionally, it has a high volume of distribution meaning it moves out of the bloodstream into the extravascular space.

important safety information and indications 

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Do not use ALPROLIX if you are allergic to ALPROLIX or any of the other ingredients in ALPROLIX.

Tell your healthcare provider if you have or have had any medical problems, take any medicines, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, supplements, or herbal medicines, have any allergies and all your medical conditions, including if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, are breastfeeding, or have been told you have inhibitors (antibodies) to Factor IX.

Common side effects of ALPROLIX include headache, abnormal sensation in the mouth, and pain in your side with blood in your urine, which may be a sign of clot formation in the urinary collecting system. These are not all of the possible side effects of ALPROLIX. Talk to your healthcare provider right away about any side effect that bothers you or does not go away, and if bleeding is not controlled using ALPROLIX.

Allergic reactions may occur with ALPROLIX. Call your healthcare provider or get emergency treatment right away if you have any of the following symptoms: hives, chest tightness, wheezing, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the face.

Your body can also make antibodies called "inhibitors" against ALPROLIX, which may stop ALPROLIX from working properly.

ALPROLIX may increase the risk of formation of abnormal blood clots in your body, especially if you have risk factors for developing blood clots. Call your healthcare provider or seek emergency care if you have symptoms of a possible abnormal blood clot, which may include: chest pain, difficulty breathing, unexpected swelling of an arm or leg with or without pain or tenderness.
