BERINERT is a fast-acting, on-demand treatment for attacks of swelling caused by hereditary angioedema (HAE). BERINERT works at the root cause of HAE attacks by adding functioning C1-INH to your body, a key protein that is either missing or non-functioning in people with HAE. With training, you can self-administer BERINERT, so you can get relief when and where you need it.
At the first sign of an HAE attack, you want an on-demand treatment that works fast and keeps on working until your symptoms are resolved.
In a clinical trial, the time to onset of symptom relief was 15 minutes.* The time to complete resolution of symptoms was 8.4 hours.*
In a clinical trial, the time to onset of symptom relief was 48 minutes.* The time to complete resolution of symptoms was under 5 hours.*
“Without BERINERT, my abdomen attacks would last for days. I would miss school and spend a lot of hours in pain.”–BERINERT patient >
The most serious adverse reaction reported in subjects who received BERINERT in clinical studies was an increase in the severity of pain associated with HAE. Dysgeusia, a bad taste in the mouth, was the most common adverse reaction reported in over 4% of subjects and more frequently than in the placebo group.
HAE attacks are caused by low levels of functioning C1-INH, a key protein in your body that controls swelling. BERINERT adds functioning C1-INH to your body, rapidly halting the progress of an HAE attack and providing fast relief.
