Last reviewed on RxList: 5/15/2020
Drug Description

What is Fibryga and how is it used?

Fibryga is used to treat bleeding episodes in patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency, a rare condition in which blood does not clot properly.

What are side effect of Fibryga?

Side effects of Fibryga include:

  • vomiting,
  • weakness,
  • fever,
  • blood clots, and
  • anaphylactic type reactions

DESCRIPTION

FIBRYGA is a human plasma-derived, sterile, purified, virus-inactivated and nanofiltered (20 nm) fibrinogen concentrate.

FIBRYGA is supplied as a lyophilized powder for reconstitution for intravenous injection. FIBRYGA contains no preservatives. Each bottle contains approximately 1 g of fibrinogen. The diluent for reconstitution of the lyophilized powder is sterile Water for Injection.

The nominal composition of FIBRYGA is as follows:

ComponentOuantitv/ mL
Human Fibrinogen20 mg
Sodium Chloride6 mg
Sodium Citrate Dihydrate1.5 mg
Glycine10 mg

All units of human plasma used in the manufacture of FIBRYGA are provided by FDA-approved blood establishments, and are tested by FDA-licensed serological tests for Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), antibodies to Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-½. As an additional safety measure, the plasma is tested with Nucleic Acid Tests (NATs) for Hepatitis A Virus (HAV), Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), HCV and HIV-1 and found to be non-reactive (negative). The plasma is also screened for Human Parvovirus (B19V) by NAT. The limit for B19V DNA in the mini-pool is set not to exceed 103 IU/mL. Only plasma that passed virus screening is used for production.

The FIBRYGA manufacturing process includes a solvent/detergent (S/D) step for virus inactivation, and a nanofiltration step (Planova 20N nanofilter or Pegasus SV4 nanofilter) for virus removal. The mean cumulative virus reduction factors of these steps are summarized in Table 1 below.

Indications & Dosage

INDICATIONS

FIBRYGA is a human fibrinogen concentrate indicated for the treatment of acute bleeding episodes in adults and adolescents with congenital fibrinogen deficiency, including afibrinogenemia and hypofibrinogenemia.

FIBRYGA is not indicated for dysfibrinogenemia.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

For intravenous use after reconstitution. Reconstitute prior to use.

Dosage

FIBRYGA dosing, duration of dosing, and frequency of administration should be individualized based on the extent of bleeding, laboratory values, and the clinical condition of the patient.

The recommended target fibrinogen plasma level is 100 mg/dL for minor bleeding and 150 mg/dL for major bleeding.

FIBRYGA Dose When Baseline Fibrinogen Level Is Known

Dose should be individually calculated for each patient based on the target plasma fibrinogen level for the type of bleeding, actual measured plasma fibrinogen level and body weight , using the following formula (see Pharmacokinetics):

Dose (mg/kg body weight) = [Target fibrinogen level (mg/dL)- measured fibrinogen level (mg/dL)]/ 1.8 (mg/dL per mg/kg body weight)

FIBRYGA Dose When Baseline Fibrinogen Level Is Not Known

If the patient’s fibrinogen level is not known, the recommended dose is 70 mg per kg of body weight administered intravenously.

Monitor the patient’s fibrinogen level during treatment with FIBRYGA.

Additional infusions of FIBRYGA should be administered if the plasma fibrinogen level is below the accepted lower limit (80 mg/dL for minor bleeding, 130 mg/dL for major bleeding) of the target level until hemostasis is achieved.

Preparation And Handling

FIBRYGA package contains:

  • 1 single-use bottle of FIBRYGA concentrate
  • 1 transfer device (Octajet)
  • 1 particle filter

Reconstitute FIBRYGA with 50 mL of sterile Water for Injection (not provided).

Do not use FIBRYGA beyond the expiration date. FIBRYGA contains no preservatives. Use aseptic technique when preparing and reconstituting FIBRYGA.

The procedures below are provided as general guidelines for preparation and reconstitution of FIBRYGA.

Reconstitute FIBRYGA as follows:

  1. Warm both the powder and sterile Water for Injection (sWFI) in their closed bottles to room temperature. This temperature should be maintained during reconstitution. If a water bath is used for warming, prevent water from coming into contact with the rubber stoppers or the caps of the bottles. The temperature of the water bath should not exceed +37°C (98°F).
  2. Remove the cap from the FIBRYGA bottle and the sWFI bottle to expose the central portion of the rubber stoppers. Clean the rubber stoppers with an alcohol swab and allow the rubber stoppers to dry.
  3. Peel away the lid of the outer package of the Octajet transfer device. To maintain sterility, leave the Octajet device in the clear outer package.
  4. Take the Octajet in its outer package and invert it over the FIBRYGA bottle. Place the device while in the outer package onto the center of the FIBRYGA bottle until the clips of the product spike (colorless) are locked. While holding onto the FIBRYGA bottle, carefully remove the outer package from the Octajet, being careful not to touch the water spike (blue) and leave the Octajet attached firmly to the FIBRYGA bottle. (Fig. 1)
  5. With the FIBRYGA bottle held firmly on a level surface, invert the sWFI bottle and place it at the center of the water spike. Push the blue plastic cannula of the Octajet firmly through the rubber stopper of the sWFI bottle. (Fig. 2)
  6. Remove the distance ring (Fig. 3) and press the sWFI bottle down (Fig. 4). sWFI will flow into the FIBRYGA bottle.
  7. When transfer of the sWFI is complete, gently swirl the FIBRYGA bottle until the powder is fully dissolved. To avoid foam formation, do not shake the bottle. The powder should be dissolved completely within approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
  8. Turn the blue sWFI bottle connector (in either direction) to bring the position markers together and remove the sWFI bottle together with the water spike (Fig. 5). Keep the concentrate bottle upright to avoid leaking.
  9. Firmly connect the provided particle filter on the remaining Luer Lock on the FIBRYGA bottle (Fig. 6) and withdraw the solution through the particle filter into a syringe. (Fig. 7,8)
  10. Detach the filled syringe from the particle filter and discard the empty bottle and the filter.
    • After reconstitution, the FIBRYGA solution should be almost colorless and slightly opalescent. Inspect the reconstituted FIBRYGA solution in the syringe for visible particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration. Do not use if particulate matter or discoloration are observed.

The powder should be reconstituted only directly before injection. After reconstitution, do not refrigerate or freeze the FIBRYGA solution. Use the reconstituted FIBRYGA solution immediately or within 4 hours after reconstitution. Discard any remaining FIBRYGA solution.

Administration

For intravenous use only after reconstitution.

  • Do not administer FIBRYGA in the same tubing or container as other medications.
  • Use aseptic technique when administering FIBRYGA.
  • Administer FIBRYGA at room temperature by slow intravenous injection at a rate not exceeding 5 mL per minute.

Side Effects & Drug Interactions

SIDE EFFECTS

The most serious adverse reactions that may potentially be observed for FIBRYGA are thromboembolic episodes and anaphylactic type reactions.

Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to the rate in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

Thirteen subjects received at least one dose of FIBRYGA for the treatment of bleeding episodes and/or perioperative management of bleeding. The most common adverse reactions observed in more than one subject in clinical studies with FIBRYGA (> 5% of subjects) were vomiting, weakness and pyrexia (fever).

One patient had a mild skin reaction (itchiness and redness) after FIBRYGA administration for a bleeding episode and was treated with diphenhydramine and hydrocortisone. Thereafter, the patient received another infusion of FIBRYGA for the treatment of the same bleeding episode and another FIBRYGA infusion for surgical prophylaxis during next week. For both of those FIBRYGA infusions the patient was treated with diphenhydramine and hydrocortisone prophylactically and did not experience any drug reactions.

Warnings & Precautions

WARNINGS

Included as part of the PRECAUTIONS section.

PRECAUTIONS

Hypersensitivity Reactions

Hypersensitivity reactions may occur. If early signs of hypersensitivity reactions (including hives, generalized urticaria, tightness of the chest, wheezing, hypotension, and anaphylaxis) or symptoms of allergic reactions occur, immediately discontinue administration (see Patient Counseling Information ). The treatment required depends on the nature and severity of the reaction.

Thrombosis

Thrombosis may occur spontaneously in patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency with or without the use of fibrinogen replacement therapy. Thrombotic events have been reported in patients receiving human fibrinogen concentrate. Treatment with human fibrinogen concentrate has been associated with risk of thrombosis at target fibrinogen levels that were less than 150 mg/dL. The risk of thrombosis may be greater when the target fibrinogen plasma level is 150 mg/dL. Weigh the benefits of FIBRYGA administration versus the risks of thrombosis. Patients receiving FIBRYGA should be monitored for signs and symptoms of thrombosis. (see Patient Counseling Information)

Transmissible Infectious Agents

FIBRYGA is made from human plasma. Products made from human plasma may contain infectious agents (e.g., viruses and the CJD agent that can cause disease). Also, unknown infectious agents may be present in such products (see Patient Counseling Information). The risk that such products will transmit an infectious agent has been reduced by screening plasma donors for prior exposure to certain viruses, by testing for the presence of certain current virus infections, and by a process demonstrated to inactivate and/or remove certain viruses during manufacturing. (see DESCRIPTION). Despite these measures, such products may transmit disease. All infections thought by a physician possibly to have been transmitted by this product should be reported by the physician or other healthcare provider to Octapharma at 1-866-766-4860.

Patient Counseling Information

  • Inform patients of the early signs of hypersensitivity or allergic reactions to FIBRYGA, including hives, chest tightness, wheezing, hypotension, and anaphylaxis (see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS). Advise them to notify their physician immediately if they experience any of these symptoms.
  • Inform patients that blood clots with or without consequent obstruction of blood flow may occur with FIBRYGA. Any symptoms of blood clots such as unexplained chest and/or leg pain or swelling of the legs or arms, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, increased rate of breathing or unexplained symptoms related to the nervous system such as stroke or weakness following administration of FIBRYGA should be reported to their physician immediately (see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS).
  • Inform patients that FIBRYGA is made from human plasma (part of the blood) and may contain infectious agents, e.g., viruses and, theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease agent, that can cause disease. Explain the risk that FIBRYGA may transmit an infectious agent has been reduced by screening the plasma donors, by testing the donated plasma for certain virus infections, and by two processes demonstrated to inactivate and/or remove certain viruses during manufacturing (see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS). Symptoms of a possible virus infection include headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, weakness, malaise, diarrhea, or, in the case of hepatitis, jaundice.

Use In Specific Populations

Pregnancy

Risk Summary

There are no data with FIBRYGA use in pregnant women to determine whether there is a drug-associated risk. Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with FIBRYGA. It is not known whether FIBRYGA can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect fertility. FIBRYGA should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2-4% and 15-20%, respectively.

Lactation

Risk Summary

There is no information regarding the presence of FIBRYGA in human milk, the effect on the breastfed infant, or the effects on milk production. The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for FIBRYGA and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed infant from FIBRYGA or from the underlying maternal condition.

Pediatric Use

There was no difference in the pharmacokinetics of FIBRYGA between adults and adolescents (12-17 years of age).

Geriatric Use

Clinical studies of FIBRYGA did not include sufficient numbers of subjects age 65 and over to provide conclusive evidence as to whether or not they respond differently than younger subjects.

Overdosage & Contraindications

OVERDOSE

No Information provided

CONTRAINDICATIONS

FIBRYGA is contraindicated in individuals who have manifested severe immediate hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, to FIBRYGA or its components (Sodium Citrate Dihydrate; Glycine; L-Arginine hydrochloride).

Clinical Pharmacology

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Mechanism Of Action

Fibrinogen (Factor I) is a soluble plasma protein that, during the coagulation process, is converted to fibrin, one of the key components of the blood clot. Fibrinogen is a heterohexamer with a molecular weight of 340 kDa and composed of two sets of A alpha , B beta , and gamma polypeptide chains.

Following coagulation activation and thrombin generation, fibrinogen is cleaved by thrombin at specific sites on the A alpha and B beta chains to remove fibrinopeptide A (FPA) and fibrinopeptide B (FPB). The removal of FPA and FPB exposes binding sites on the fibrinogen molecule and leads to the formation of fibrin monomers that subsequently undergo polymerization. The resulting fibrin is stabilized by activated factor XIII. Factor XIIIa acts on fibrin to form cross links between fibrin polymers and renders the fibrin clot more resistant to fibrinolysis. The end product of the coagulation cascade is cross-linked fibrin which stabilizes the primary platelet plug and achieves secondary hemostasis.

Pharmacodynamics

Administration of FIBRYGA to patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency supplements the missing coagulation factor or increases low plasma fibrinogen levels. Normal plasma fibrinogen level is in the range of 200 - 450 mg/dL.

An open-label, prospective, randomized, controlled, two-arm, cross-over study was conducted in 22 subjects with congenital fibrinogen deficiency (afibrinogenemia), ranging in age from 12 to 53 years (6 adolescents, 16 adults). Each subject received a single intravenous 70 mg/kg dose of FIBRYGA and the comparator product. Blood samples were drawn from the patients to measure the fibrinogen activity at baseline and up to 14 days after the infusion. Maximum Clot Firmness (MCF) was measured by thromboelastometry (ROTEM).

For each subject, MCF was determined before (baseline) and one hour after the single dose administration of FIBRYGA. In this cross-over study, the results were compared with another fibrinogen concentrate available on the US market. The results of the study demonstrated that the MCF values were significantly higher after administration of FIBRYGA than at baseline ( see Table 2 ). The mean change from pre-infusion to 1 hour post-infusion was 9.7 mm in the primary analysis (9.0 mm for subjects < 18 years old and 9.9 mm for subjects ≥ 18 to < 65 years old).

Pharmacokinetics

An open-label, prospective, randomized, controlled, two-arm, cross-over study was conducted in 22 subjects with congenital fibrinogen deficiency (afibrinogenemia), ranging in age from 12 to 53 years (6 adolescents, 16 adults). Each subject received a single intravenous 70 mg/kg dose of FIBRYGA and the comparator product. Blood samples were drawn from the subjects to determine the fibrinogen activity at baseline and up to 14 days after the infusion. The pharmacokinetic parameters of FIBRYGA (n=21) are summarized in Table 3 .

The incremental in vivo recovery (IVR) was determined from levels obtained up to 4 hours post-infusion. The median incremental IVR was a 1.8 mg/dL (range 1.1 – 2.6 mg/dL) increase per mg/kg. The median in vivo recovery indicates that a dose of 70 mg/kg will increase patients’ fibrinogen plasma concentration by approximately 125 mg/dL.

No difference in fibrinogen activity was observed between males and females. There was no difference in the pharmacokinetics of FIBRYGA between adults and adolescents (12-17 years of age).

Clinical Studies

An interim analysis of an ongoing prospective, open-label, uncontrolled, multicentre clinical study was conducted in 13 patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency (afibrinogenemia and hypofibrinogenemia), ranging in age from 13 to 53 years (2 adolescents, 11 adults). The data below describes 22 minor bleeding events (BEs), with minor bleeding defined as mild joint bleeding or superficial muscle, soft tissue, and oral bleeding. 15 (68%) BEs were spontaneous and 7 (32%) Bes were traumatic.

The median number of infusions for BEs was 1. Two (9%) BEs required 2 infusions. None of the BEs required more than 2 infusions. The median dose of FIBRYGA per infusion for treatment of all BEs was 58 mg/kg.

The treatment of all of the minor BEs studied was assessed for efficacy using a 4-point haemostatic efficacy scale. The scale was based on criteria such as bleeding cessation, changes in hemoglobin, and use of any other hemostatic means. Of 22 evaluable bleeding events, 21 (95%) were assessed as having a successful efficacy outcome (rating of good or excellent efficacy) by both the investigator and by an independent adjudication committee. For one BE, the investigator’s assessment was missing. When considering only the first BE in each patient, all 10 BEs (100%) were assessed as having a successful efficacy outcome (rating of good or excellent efficacy) by both the investigator and the independent adjudication committee.
