Until recently, the treatments available were designed for other diseases and contain larger amounts of other proteins, such as factors II and IX, in addition to factor X.2

Taking these extra proteins when you don’t need them can cause blood clots that may block blood vessels and cause serious injury (for example: stroke or blood clots in the lung or leg).3

Important Safety Information for COAGADEX

COAGADEX is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any of the components of the product.

Allergic type hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, are possible with COAGADEX. If symptoms occur, patients should discontinue use of the product immediately and contact their physician.

The formation of neutralizing antibodies (inhibitors) to factor X is a possible complication in the management of individuals with factor X deficiency. Carefully monitor patients taking COAGADEX for the development of inhibitors by appropriate clinical observations and laboratory tests.

COAGADEX is made from human plasma and may contain infectious agents, e.g. viruses, the variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) agent and, theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) agent. No cases of transmission of viral diseases, vCJD or CJD, have been associated with the use of COAGADEX.

In clinical studies, the most common adverse reactions (frequency ≥5% of subjects) with COAGADEX were infusion site erythema, infusion site pain, fatigue and back pain.
