Trial of Acquired Haemophilia With Steroid Combined With Cyclophosphamide Versus Steroid Combined With Rituximab


Brief description of study

Purpose

To evaluate the efficacy when administering steroid combined with small dose rituximab to eliminate the antibody in acquired hemophilia A patients compared to treatment using steroid with cyclophosphamide.

The study will test the hypothesis that steroid combined with small dose rituximab is as effective as steroid combined with cyclophosphamide for FVIII inhibitor eradication in Chinese patients with acquired hemophilia A.

Study design Allocation: Randomized Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment Masking: None (Open Label) Primary Purpose: Treatment

Detailed Study Description

This is a prospective randomized multi-center controlled pilot trial comparing the regimen of steroid with rituximab and steroid with cyclophosphamide to eradicate anti-factor VIII antibodies in Chinese patients with acquired hemophilia A.

Patients will be randomized to two regimens: methylprednisolone 0.8mg/kg/day (or equivalent corticosteroid doses) for 3 weeks (then tapering gradually,8 weeks in total) with rituximab (375mg/m2 for one dose) or methylprednisolone 0.8mg/kg/day (or equivalent corticosteroid doses) for 3 weeks (then tapering gradually,8 weeks in total) with cyclophosphamide 2mg/kg/day until inhibitor negative(no longer than five weeks).

Patients will be randomized to the treatment cohorts according to the biostatistical methods.
