Haegarda Will Join Cinryze for Hereditary Angioedema
You'll hear about Haegarda (hay-GAR-duh), a new med to prevent "hereditary angioedema" attacks.
Think of Haegarda as similar to Cinryze. They're both "C1 esterase inhibitors" that are injected twice weekly to keep swelling from this rare genetic disorder at bay.
But be aware of a difference with Haegarda. It's given subcutaneously instead of IV like Cinryze.
