Octapharma Share Promising Preclinical Data for SubQ-8, a Novel Subcutaneous Recombinant FVIII, at WFH 201828.5.2018 10:58 | Tiedote
Octapharma announced today that pre-clinical data for SubQ-8 were presented during a symposium at the recent World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) 2018 World Congress in Glasgow, UK. SubQ-8, currently under development, is a recombinant FVIII from a human cell line for subcutaneous administration. SubQ-8 is based on Octapharma’s human cell line-derived rFVIII product simoctocog alpha combined with a fragment of the von Willebrand Factor (VWF) protein, and harnesses the protective power of VWF in an innovative approach to facilitate transportation of FVIII into the circulation. Regular intravenous administration of FVIII poses a considerable burden to people with haemophilia A and their families. Alternative routes of administration may help to alleviate some of this burden and improve adherence to prophylaxis therapy. This symposium, entitled ‘Taking FVIII into the future: The development of subcutaneous recombinant human FVIII for the treatment of haemophilia A’, reviewed the challenge

Octapharma announced today that new data on the benefits of Nuwiq® in patients with haemophilia A were presented during a symposium at the recent World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) 2018 World Congress in Glasgow, UK. Nuwiq® is a 4th generation human cell line-derived recombinant FVIII (rFVIII) approved for the prevention and treatment of bleeding episodes in patients of all ages with haemophilia A. The symposium, entitled ‘Going further to meet clinical needs: New data with Nuwiq ® ▼ (simoctocog alfa; human-cl rFVIII) from clinical trials and real-world experience’, focused on the challenges within the current haemophilia treatment landscape and opportunities to improve patient care. The symposium, chaired by Craig Kessler, addressed the reality that no two haemophilia A patients are the same. An optimal treatment approach should therefore reflect each individual patient’s profile. Striving towards this goal, two approaches to using pharmacokinetic (PK) data to personalise prophylaxi

FCF: Greenpeace Allegations Unfair and Deceptive26.5.2018 21:02 | Tiedote
FCF Fishery, Co. President Max Chou today released the following statement regarding recent misleading Greenpeace human rights abuse allegations made against the company: “We realize that as one of the world’s largest marine products integrated supply chain service providers with more than 30 subsidiaries, fishing bases, and shipping agents around the world, we are a prime target for organizations seeking to garner publicity and those not fully aware of the latest development and improvements that are currently taking place in the fishery industry. However, in their efforts to curb egregious human rights abuses, we believe it is unfair and deceptive to lump our company in with those who condone cruelty and neglect of their laborers. “Although we recognize the meaningful work of Greenpeace in exposing and eliminating human trafficking and sustainability abuses, we are equally disappointed that they are implicating FCF in old incidents and cases that have since been in all instances addr
