Individualized, weight-based dosing and self-administration

During an HAE attack, patients treating with on-demand therapy need the right dose at the first sign of an attack. With BERINERT, patients can self-administer an appropriate dose when and where they need to.

Learn about BERINERT self-administration

Empower your patients to self-administer at the first sign of an HAE attack

Attacks can occur in patients even if they are on long-term prophylaxis
Patients can infuse on their own or with help from a caregiver after receiving proper training from a healthcare professional

BERINERT works on demand, so it’s used only when patients have an acute abdominal, facial, or laryngeal attack—not to prevent an attack
Self-administration can be crucial in the event of a life-threatening laryngeal HAE attack
