Leiden, The Netherlands, 25 February 2019, Pharming Group N.V. (“Pharming” or “the Company”) (Euronext Amsterdam: PHARM) announced today that an abstract was presented this week at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA.
Additionally, Pharming is pleased to announce sponsorship of the AAAAI Foundation Michael M. Frank, MD, FAAAAI Lectureship.
The presentation Recombinant Human C1 Esterase Inhibitor as Short-Term Prophylaxis for Dental Procedures in Patients with Hereditary Angioedema: A Case Series by Anna Valerieva, MD, PhD et al. described a retrospective study in patients diagnosed with hereditary angioedema (HAE) from Europe and the United States who received RUCONEST® (C1 esterase inhibitor [recombinant]) prior to dental procedures to prevent an HAE attack. The authors concluded that short-term prophylaxis with RUCONEST®, administered within approximately 60 minutes before the procedure, was efficacious and safe in adults and reduced the risk of an attack post-procedure.
