How it Works

Hemlibra (emicizumab) is a monoclonal antibody used to prevent bleeding episodes in individuals with hemophilia A. Hemophilia A is a genetic disorder caused by missing or defective factor VIII, a clotting protein. Hemlibra works by bridging activated factor IX and factor X to restore the function of the missing factor VIII, thereby helping the blood to clot normally. This innovative mechanism allows Hemlibra to provide effective prophylaxis for bleeding in patients with hemophilia A, reducing the frequency and severity of bleeding episodes.

  • Diarrhea
  • Thrombotic microangiopathy (rare)
