Important Safety Information for RiaSTAP
RiaSTAP®, Fibrinogen Concentrate (Human), is contraindicated in patients with known anaphylactic or severe systemic reactions to human plasma-derived products.
Monitor patients for early signs of anaphylaxis or hypersensitivity reactions and if necessary, discontinue administration and institute appropriate treatment. Thrombotic events have been reported in patients receiving RiaSTAP; weigh the benefits of administration versus the risks of thrombosis.
RiaSTAP is made from human blood. The risk of transmission of infectious agents, including viruses and, theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) agent and its variant (vCJD), cannot be completely eliminated.
The most serious adverse reactions observed are thrombotic episodes (pulmonary embolism, myocardial infarction, deep vein thrombosis) and anaphylactic reactions. The most common adverse reactions observed in clinical studies (frequency >1%) were fever and headache.
Indications for RiaSTAP
RIASTAP is indicated for the treatment of acute bleeding episodes in pediatric and adult patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency, including afibrinogenemia and hypofibrinogenemia.
