The objective of this patient registry is to collect data on the safety of Berinert® in normal clinical practice in the United States. The patient registry will be maintained for a period of 3 years. The duration of individual patient participation will vary and is determined by the frequency of hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks and the patient's need for Berinert® treatment.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

The study is performed to investigate the subcutaneous (s.c.) versus intravenous (i.v.) administration of Berinert P in patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE) to establish a second admi...
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous administration of a liquid formulation of C1 esterase inhibitor for the prevention of angioedema attacks in a...
The study objective was to describe the pharmacokinetics (PK) of one or two doses of C1 esterase inhibitor (C1INH-nf) in hereditary angioedema (HAE) subjects who were not experiencing an H...
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disorder characterized by congenital lack of functional C1 esterase inhibitor. If not treated adequately, the acute attacks of HAE can be life-threate...
The study objective was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of repeat use of C1INH-nf for the treatment of acute HAE attacks.
Hereditary angioedema is a life-threatening illness caused by mutations in the gene encoding C1 inhibitor (also called C1 esterase inhibitor) that lead to overactivation of the kallikrein-bradykinin c...
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is characterised by recurrent episodes of angioedema and can be fatal.
Hereditary angioedema is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by recurrent angioedema attacks with the involvement of multiple organs. The disease is unknown to many health professionals and is...
The plasma contact system contributes to thrombosis in experimental models. Even though our standard blood coagulation tests are prolonged when plasma lacks contact factors, this enzyme system appears...
The lack of specific biomarkers makes the diagnosis of hereditary angioedema (HAE) with normal levels of C1-inhibitor (C1INH) protein (HAE-nl-C1INH) and idiopathic non-histaminergic angioedema (INHA) ...
Forms of hereditary angioedema that occur due to mutations in the gene for COMPLEMENT C1 INHIBITOR PROTEIN. Type I hereditary angioedema is associated with reduced serum levels of complement C1 inhibitor protein. Type II hereditary angioedema is associated with the production of a non-functional complement C1 inhibitor protein.
A form of hereditary angioedema that occurs in women and is precipitated or worsened by high ESTROGEN levels. It is associated with mutations in the gene for FACTOR XII that result in its increased activity.
An endogenous 105-kDa plasma glycoprotein produced primarily by the LIVER and MONOCYTES. It inhibits a broad spectrum of proteases, including the COMPLEMENT C1R and the COMPLEMENT C1S proteases of the CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT PATHWAY, and the MANNOSE-BINDING PROTEIN-ASSOCIATED SERINE PROTEASES. C1-INH-deficient individuals suffer from HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA TYPES I AND II.
Swelling involving the deep DERMIS, subcutaneous, or submucosal tissues, representing localized EDEMA. Angioedema often occurs in the face, lips, tongue, and larynx.
Stable blood coagulation factor activated by contact with the subendothelial surface of an injured vessel. Along with prekallikrein, it serves as the contact factor that initiates the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. Kallikrein activates factor XII to XIIa. Deficiency of factor XII, also called the Hageman trait, leads to increased incidence of thromboembolic disease. Mutations in the gene for factor XII that appear to increase factor XII amidolytic activity are associated with HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA TYPE III.
