TAKHZYRO was evaluated in two hereditary angioedema (HAE) studies: The first study led to FDA approval of TAKHZYRO, and the second was completed after FDA approval. The results speak for themselves—read on.

First study leading
to
FDA approval
of TAKHZYRO

The 6.5-month clinical study included 125 people diagnosed with HAE aged 12 years and older. The main goal of the study was to evaluate the ability of TAKHZYRO 300 mg every 2 weeks to reduce the frequency of HAE attacks.

On average, people had

87%

fewer attacks

compared with placebo

44% of people had zero attacks with TAKHZYRO® for the entire 6.5-month study.

compared with 2%

taking placebo

People also had 83% fewer moderate or severe attacks and 87% fewer attacks that needed acute treatment compared to placebo.

Second study
completed after
FDA
approval

The 2.5-year open-label extension clinical study included 212 people diagnosed with HAE aged 12 years and older. The main goal of this study was to evaluate the long-term safety of TAKHZYRO 300 mg every 2 weeks. Patients knew they were receiving TAKHZYRO, which could have influenced the study results.

In this study, people taking TAKHZYRO for an average of 2.5 years had similar results to those in the 6.5-month clinical study.

On average, people had

87%

fewer attacks

compared with baseline

69% of people had zero attacks with TAKHZYRO® for up to a year.

HAD ZERO
ATTACKS

for up to a year

People also had 84% fewer moderate or severe attacks and 93% fewer attacks that needed acute treatment compared with baseline.

Baseline means a person's attack rate before beginning treatment in either the clinical study or the long-term, open-label study.

All data presented are for TAKHZYRO 300 mg every 2 weeks unless otherwise indicated.
