2012 Proves to Be Strong Year for Anti-Hemophilic Factor Distribution, Despite Market Competition
Strategic focus and robust portfolio of services continue to create record distribution trend for specialty biotech distributor BDI Pharma.
Columbia, SC (PRWEB) June 21, 2012
BDI Pharma, Inc. (BDI), the nation´s fastest growing national distributor of biotech therapies, after finishing the previous calendar year with a record level of distribution in anti-hemophilic factor (AHF), announced today that through the first five (5) months of 2012, the company´s distribution is tracking twenty-eight percent (28%) ahead of the sales volume during the same time period in calendar year 2011.
Hemophilia is a hereditary, rare blood disorder which impairs the body´s ability to clot. Factor replacement therapy, including infusions of the deficient clotting factor, can help to control the symptoms. BDI Pharma distributes various forms of this anti-hemophilic factor – sterile solutions of concentrated Factor 7a (FVIIa), Factor 8 (FVIII) and Factor 9 (FIX) – which are protein substances normally found in blood plasma essential to the clotting process. These coagulation factors are derived through both recombinant and plasma technologies. FVIII is administered intravenously for the treatment of Hemophilia A. Certain plasma derived forms of FVIII (pdFVIII) that contain von Willebrand Factor (vWF) may be used to treat von Willebrand Disease (vWD). FIX is used in the management of Hemophilia B and FVIIa is used by hemophilia patients who have developed inhibitors to FVIII and FIX.
“Our commitment to providing life saving therapies to patients with Hemophilia is the driving force behind the success we have had over the years. BDI recognized this need over 17 years ago when we started operations,” stated Edward Stiefel, Jr., President and Co-Founder of BDI Pharma. “Patient needs are the very backbone of this commitment.”
