Efficacy of CINRYZE in Adults and Adolescents

CINRYZE has been proven to reduce the frequency, severity, duration of attacks, and the number of days of swelling of hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks in adults and adolescents.1

Adults and adolescents: Primary endpoint analysis

The efficacy of CINRYZE in preventing HAE attacks in adult and adolescent patients was evaluated based on the number of HAE attacks during the 12-week treatment period with CINRYZE compared with the number of attacks during the 12-week placebo treatment period.1

CINRYZE significantly reduced the mean number of HAE attacks vs. placebo (p<0.0001). The number (standard deviation) of HAE attacks was 6.1 (5.4) while taking CINRYZE vs. 12.7 (4.8) on placebo.1

CINRYZE has been proven to reduce the frequency of HAE attacks.1

The effectiveness of CINRYZE prophylaxis in reducing the number of HAE attacks was variable among the 22 subjects in a controlled clinical trial.1

  • 20 patients experienced a reduction in attack frequency
    • Ranging from a 100% to 1% reduction in number of attacks
    • 4 patients experienced no attacks during a 12-week period
  • 2 patients experienced an increase in attack frequency
    • One patient showed an 8% increase in attacks
    • One patient showed an 85% increase in attacks

Study design

The pivotal trial was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, crossover study of adults and adolescents designed to establish the safety (n=24) and efficacy (n=22) of CINRYZE prophylaxis in patients with a history of at least 2 HAE attacks per month. In addition to the primary efficacy analysis of attack frequency, secondary endpoints included the duration and severity of attacks and the number of days of swelling.1

Prevention with CINRYZE reduced the severity and duration of HAE attacks and days of swelling.1

CINRYZE significantly reduced the mean severity of HAE attacks vs. placebo (p<0.01).

  • Mean severity of HAE attacks (SD): CINRYZE 1.3 (0.85) vs. placebo 1.9 (0.36)
  • Mean treatment effect (placebo minus CINRYZE) was 0.58 (95% CI, 0.19, 0.97)
