Twice-weekly Dosing May Meet Your Patients' Needs

AFSTYLA twice weekly* is predicted to provide protection with FVIII median trough levels of 1.9%†1

Predicted FVIII activity with simulated twice-weekly dosing 1

FVIII activity when dosed twice weekly†1

With twice-weekly dosing1:

80% of patients could maintain >1% FVIII activity

  • A median 1.9% trough FVIII activity was predicted for patients treated with AFSTYLA (range: 0.58–8.0)1

When dosed three times weekly1:

96% of patients could maintain >1% FVIII activity

  • A median 4.4% trough FVIII activity was predicted for patients treated with AFSTYLA (range: 1.1–17.3)1

*FDA approved for 2x–3x weekly dosing.
Median trough levels of simulated steady-state FVIII activity following doses of 50 IU/kg AFSTYLA in adolescents and adults.

Study design


Data derived from simulated steady-state analysis from a PK model developed based on the levels of FVIII activity in previously treated adult patients who had FVIII activity <1 IU/dL and no FVIII inhibitors at screening. Patients had not received FVIII therapy for at least 4 days prior to being given AFSTYLA at 50 IU/kg. Blood samples for PK assessments were collected before infusion (predose) and up to 96 hours after infusion. A visual predictive check was performed to evaluate the performance of the final population PK model.

Dosing AFSTYLA twice weekly helped David

"On AFSTYLA, I haven't had any breakthrough bleeding."

‡Testimonial is the speaker’s personal experience. Individual results may vary.

Zero bleeds (median AsBR§) regardless of dosing regimen

The recommended starting regimen is

  • 20–50 IU/kg for patients ≥12 years
  • 30–50 IU/kg for patients <12 years

Adjust regimen based on patient response

  • Patients <12 years may require more frequent or higher doses

Proven protection with a low median dose

The median doses used in AFSTYLA clinical trials were

  • 2x weekly
    • 35 IU/kg for patients of all ages
  • 3x weekly
    • 30 IU/kg for patients ≥12 years
    • 32 IU/kg for patients <12 years

§Annualized spontaneous bleeding rate in clinical trials (IQR=0–2.4 for patients ≥12 years; 0–2.2 for patients <12 years).

Twice-weekly dosing with AFSTYLA provides Jonathan with bleed protection as he plays with his friends

"One less infusion means a world of difference to a parent."

Dosing formula

The dose to achieve a desired in vivo peak increase in Factor VIII level may be calculated using the following formula:

Dosing Formula

The amount of AFSTYLA to be administered and the frequency of administration should always be oriented to the clinical effectiveness in the individual case.
