COLUMBIA, S.C., Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BDI Pharma, Inc., the nation's fastest growing, independently owned specialty pharmaceutical distributor, today announced it has been selected by Bio Products Laboratory (BPL) as an Authorized Distributor of Record (ADR) for Coagadex (Coagulation Factor X, Human). On October 20, 2015, Coagadex was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of adults and children (aged 12 years and over) with hereditary factor X deficiency for on-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes, and perioperative management of bleeding in patients with mild hereditary factor X deficiency.
Similar in character to hemophilia A and hemophilia B, hereditary factor X deficiency is one of the rarest bleeding disorders affecting approximately 300-600 patients in the U.S. Affected individuals often have inadequate amounts of circulating factor X, an important component of the coagulation system. Factor X deficient patients are at increased risk of bleeding and need to be managed through replacement therapy similarly to hemophilia patients.
"We are proud to have been selected as an ADR for this groundbreaking new hemophilia therapy," stated Richard Gaton, president and co-founder of BDI Pharma. "The addition of Coagadex to our orphan product portfolio further aligns our mission with the goals and needs of the rare disease community."
Coagadex is expected to be available in the U.S. in December 2015. Contact a BDI Pharma representative to obtain more information about the product or to inquire about ordering.
