The objective of this study is to evaluate the formation of antibodies, the occurence of allergic reactions, and the risk of hypercoagulability and hypocoagulability in patients treated with KALBITOR (ecallantide).
The objective of this study is to evaluate immunogenicity and hypersensitivity upon exposure to KALBITOR, in particular:
1. Determine the rate of anaphylaxis and Type I hypersensitivity reactions upon exposure to KALBITOR.
2. Determine the rate of seroconversion to anti-ecallantide antibodies upon exposure to KALBITOR.
3. Determine the rate of adverse events related to disordered coagulation (hypercoagulability and hypocoagulability) upon exposure to KALBITOR.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

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...
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 treatmen...
Hereditary angioedema ("HAE") is a genetic disorder characterized by sudden recurrent attacks of local swelling (angioedema). These attacks are often painful and disabling, and, in some ca...
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...
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...
Hereditary angioedema is characterized by severe, episodic edema of the subcutaneous and mucosal tissue. The disease carries significant morbidity and mortality due to involvement of the gastrointesti...
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.
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.
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.
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...
