Human Fibrinogen, powder for injection
Human fibrinogen is a protein which is important for blood clotting (coagulation). If you have missing or malfunctioning fibrinogen the blood does not clot as quickly as it should which results in an increased tendency of bleeding. The replacement of human fibrinogen with RiaSTAP provides an increase in the level of plasma fibrinogen which can temporarily correct the coagulation defect of patients with fibrinogen deficiency.
RiaSTAP is supplied as a sterile white powder which is dissolved with Water for Injections and then injected into a vein. It contains 1g of human fibrinogen per vial and each product package consists of one carton containing a single-use vial of RiaSTAP.
RiaSTAP is manufactured by CSL Behring and distributed within New Zealand by CSL Behring (Australia).
RiaSTAP is available with a doctor’s prescription.
