Immune tolerance induction (ITI) can eliminate factor VIII (FVIII) inhibitory antibodies that appear during FVIII replacement therapy. If first-line ITI fails, switching to a different FVIII concentrate, especially one containing von Willebrand factor (VWF), has been advocated. The objective of the study was to assess the efficacy and safety of Haemate(®) P, a plasma-derived FVIII concentrate containing high levels of VWF, as ITI in severe haemophilia A patients who had failed at least one prior ITI attempt with a different FVIII concentrate. In this multicentre, observational study, Haemate(®) P was administered at a starting dose of 83-308 IU kg(-1)  day(-1) (1500-6000 IU day(-1) ). Efficacy was assessed by standard criteria (e.g. Bethesda titre, FVIII recovery and half-life), and bleeding characteristics. Nine patients from six haemophilia centres were treated with Haemate(®) P after failing one (n = 2), two (n = 5) or three (n = 2) prior ITI courses. The median time from inhibitor detection to Haemate(®) P treatment was 5.4 years. The median Haemate(®) P dose was 134 IU kg(-1) , and the median treatment duration 32 months. During median of 47 months of follow-up, complete response, partial response and treatment failure were observed in one, three and five patients respectively. Five patients experienced seven adverse events (AEs), including two serious AEs (sepsis). Haemate(®) P was discontinued due to an AE in one patient with a partial response. Haemate(®) P salvage ITI resulted in complete or partial tolerization in four of nine patients (44%) who had failed previous ITI attempts using different FVIII concentrates.
