New Drug Information

  • Hemgenix® (etranacogene dezaparvovec-drlb): The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved CSL Behring’s Hemgenix for the treatment of adults with hemophilia B who currently use factor IX prophylaxis therapy, or have current or historical life-threatening hemorrhage or have repeated, serious spontaneous bleeding episodes. Hemgenix is a one-time gene therapy product given as a single dose by IV infusion. In one study, patients who received Hemgenix had increases in factor IX activity levels, a decreased need for routine factor IX replacement prophylaxis, and a 54% reduction in annualized bleeding rate (ABR) compared to baseline.1 In a recent cost-effectiveness analysis of the drug, weighing health benefits against offset costs, the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER), an independent nonprofit research organization suggested that a fair price for the drug to be between $2.93 million and $2.96 million.2 Hemgenix has launched with a wholesale acquisition cost (WAC) of $3.5 million per one-time dose.
