The objectives of the study are to:
1. Evaluate the dose response and the pharmacokinetics (PK)/pharmacodynamics (PD) of intravenous (IV) administration of Cinryze for the treatment of acute angioedema attacks in children above and below 25 kg and less than 12 years of age with Hereditary Angioedema (HAE).
2. Determine the safety and tolerability following IV administration of Cinryze in this study population.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

The primary objectives of the study are to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of two doses of CINRYZE with recombinant human hyaluronidase (rHuPH20) administered by subcutaneo...
The purpose of this study is to determine if an investigational treatment is safe and well tolerated when administered by intravenous (IV) infusion in Japanese subjects with HAE.
The objectives of the study are: 1. To assess the safety and tolerability of escalating doses of CINRYZE. 2. To assess the effect of an escalating dose algorithm for CINRYZE on HAE a...
To explore the feasibility of a new Dried Blood Spot (DBS) filtercard-based screening algorithm and thereby analyzing the prevalence of the Hereditary Angioedema in patients with unclear r...
Previous studies reported infraclinical modifications of the homeostasis in chronic urticaria, recurrent idiopathic angioedema and hereditary angioedema. This study aim to compare groups w...
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 mechanism of idiopathic non-histaminergic acquired angioedema (InH-AAE) has not yet been precisely elucidated. This condition is characterized by recurrent angioedema without wheals.
The objective of this work was to assess resident education regarding contemporary management of hereditary angioedema using a web-based survey.
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...
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.
Swelling involving the deep DERMIS, subcutaneous, or submucosal tissues, representing localized EDEMA. Angioedema often occurs in the face, lips, tongue, and larynx.
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.
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.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Asthma is caused by inflammation of small tubes, called bronchi, which carry air in and out of the lungs. If you have asthma, the bronchi will be inflamed and more sensitive than normal. When you come into contact with something that irritates your...
The term allergy is used to describe a response, within the body, to a substance, which is not necessarily harmful in itself, but results in an immune response and a reaction that causes symptoms and disease in a predisposed person, which in turn can cau...
