HEM-POWR - A  real world evidence study of JIVI

A Real-World Evidence
Study of Jivi®

Review the Jivi Protect VIII Main Study to ground your evaluation of the HEM-POWR RWE Study data.

PROTECT VIII Study Design (N=112)1

Icon of a magnifying glass on a document in blue

112 previously treated patients (PTPs) on a prophylaxis treatment regimen entered a 10‑week run‑in period where they received 25 IU/kg twice weekly of Jivi. Of the 112 patients who entered the study, 110 patients completed the 10‑week run-in period.1*

Following the run-in period, patients were assigned or randomized to a treatment arm based on bleeding tendency. These patients were treated for 26 weeks.1

Among 97 patients with low bleeding tendencies:

  • 11 received 30-40 IU/kg twice weekly 
  • 43 patients received 45-60 IU/kg every 5 days 
  • 43 patients were randomized into the every-7-day treatment arm

The 13 patients with high bleeding tendencies received 30-40 IU/kg twice weekly for 26 weeks.1

*An additional 20 previously treated patients entered a control arm of on‑demand treatment with Jivi.
†Treatment success in the every‑7‑day arm was not established.

HEM-POWR Real-World Evidence (RWE) Study Design (severe subgroup, N=141*)2

Icon of a magnifying glass on a document in gradient blue and green

HEM-POWR is a multinational, open-label, prospective, non-interventional, multicenter cohort study of Jivi in previously treated patients with hemophilia A in a real-world clinical setting.2

As of the database cut-off, August 17, 2022, 270 patients were enrolled in the study. A third interim analysis was conducted using the following groups: Full Analysis Set: 161 patients* & Safety Analysis Set: 268 patients.2†

Previously treated patients ≥12 years of age with a diagnosis of Hemophilia A, without previous history of inhibitors, and starting or currently receiving Jivi with any kind of treatment modality (i.e., on-demand, prophylaxis, or intermittent prophylaxis) were eligible for enrollment into the study.

Data points were collected from patient e-diaries and physician records, and ethical approval was obtained at all sites. Statistical analyses were descriptive and explorative in nature.

This real-world study included patients that had mild or moderate disease and female patients. These patients are not included in the Jivi label and the results presented from the Full Analysis Set include only those for male patients with severe hemophilia.

In the severe subgroup, the prescribed treatment modality at baseline was: Prophylaxis [98.6%] or On‑Demand [1.4%]. Of the 141 severe patients, 117 (83%) were pre‑treated with Jivi.2

Limitations: Real-World Evidence studies may not use randomization and have treatment variables that are not under the control of the investigators. The lack of randomization and investigator control increases the potential for bias and confounding variables that could impact the study outcomes. Findings from this study may be subject to bias, such as patient selection and bleeding event recall bias, and limitations to availability of historical medical data.

*161 previously treated patients were included in the Full Analysis Set. 18 of these patients (mild patients, moderate patients, female patients) were excluded from this analysis as Jivi is not indicated in these populations. An additional 2 patients were excluded from this analysis because their severity was not defined. A total of 109/270 patients were excluded from the FAS because the date of first dose of Jivi in the study was not documented or infusions were not documented in their patient diary.
†268/270 patients were included in the Safety Analysis Set. One patient under 12 was included in the Safety Analysis Set. The two patients excluded from the Safety Analysis Set did not receive at least one dose of Jivi during the observation period.

Jivi safety and tolerability (safety analysis set*, N=268)6†

Incidence of patients with adverse events/serious adverse events in the study6:

  • Drug-related TEAEs 0.37% (n=1); drug-related serious TEAEs: 0% (n=0)6 
  • There were no AEs that led to the discontinuation of Jivi6 
  • No AE was classified as common (≥5%)6

Zero FVIII inhibitors6:

  • No confirmed case of inhibitors against FVIII occurred6

As a Real-World Evidence study, there were no regularly scheduled assessments of drug tolerability. Patients participating in HEM‑POWR were not required to visit study sites for efficacy or safety assessments. Patients may have visited sites as routine clinical care visits and/or may have reported adverse events to investigators who were then required to document and report the events to the study sponsor.

Limitations: Real-World Evidence studies may not use randomization and have treatment variables that are not under the control of the investigators. The lack of randomization and investigator control increases the potential for bias and confounding variables that could impact the study outcomes. Findings from this study may be subject to bias, such as patient selection and bleeding event recall bias, and limitations to availability of historical medical data.

*Patients had the option to report side effects at any time or during their follow up visit. 63% of patients did not have a follow up visit as of the database cutoff (8/2022).10
†268/270 patients were included in the Safety Analysis Set. One patient under 12 was included in the Safety Analysis Set. The two patients excluded from the Safety Analysis Set did not receive at least one dose of Jivi during the observation period.

INDICATIONS

Jivi antihemophilic factor (recombinant), PEGylated-aucl, is a recombinant DNA-derived, Factor VIII concentrate indicated for use in previously treated adults and adolescents (12 years of age and older) with hemophilia A (congenital Factor VIII deficiency) for:

On-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes

Perioperative management of bleeding

Routine prophylaxis to reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes

Limitations of use:

Jivi is not indicated for use in children less than 12 years of age due to a greater risk for hypersensitivity reactions.

Jivi is not indicated for use in previously untreated patients (PUPs).

Jivi is not indicated for the treatment of von Willebrand disease.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Jivi is contraindicated in patients who have a history of hypersensitivity reactions to the active substance, polyethylene glycol (PEG), mouse or hamster proteins, or other constituents of the product.

Hypersensitivity reactions, including severe allergic reactions, have occurred with Jivi. Monitor patients for hypersensitivity symptoms. Early signs of hypersensitivity reactions, which can progress to anaphylaxis, may include chest or throat tightness, dizziness, mild hypotension and nausea. If hypersensitivity reactions occur, immediately discontinue administration and initiate appropriate treatment.

Jivi may contain trace amounts of mouse and hamster proteins. Patients treated with this product may develop hypersensitivity to these non-human mammalian proteins.

Hypersensitivity reactions may also be related to antibodies against polyethylene glycol (PEG).

Neutralizing antibody (inhibitor) formation can occur following administration of Jivi. Carefully monitor patients for the development of Factor VIII inhibitors, using appropriate clinical observations and laboratory tests. If expected plasma Factor VIII activity levels are not attained or if bleeding is not controlled as expected with administered dose, suspect the presence of an inhibitor (neutralizing antibody).

A clinical immune response associated with IgM anti-PEG antibodies, manifested as symptoms of acute hypersensitivity and/or loss of drug effect, has been observed primarily in patients < 6 years of age. The symptoms of the clinical immune response were transient. Anti-PEG IgM titers decreased over time to undetectable levels. No immunoglobulin class switching was observed.

In case of clinical suspicion of loss of drug effect, conduct testing for Factor VIII inhibitors and Factor VIII recovery. A low post-infusion Factor VIII level in the absence of detectable Factor VIII inhibitors indicates that loss of drug effect is likely due to anti-PEG antibodies. Discontinue Jivi and switch patients to a previously effective Factor VIII product.

The most frequently (≥5%) reported adverse reactions in clinical trials in previously treated patients (PTPs) ≥12 years of age were headache, cough, nausea, and fever.
