Name of the medicinal product: Kovaltry 250 / 500 / 1000 / 2000 / 3000 IU powder and solvent for solution for injection (Refer to full SmPC before prescription.) Composition: Each vial contains nominally 250/500/1000/2000/3000 IU human coagulation factor VIII. Excipients: Sucrose, histidine, glycine, sodium chloride, calcium chloride and polysorbate 80.

Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients. Known allergic reactions to mouse or hamster proteins. Warnings and Precautions: Allergic type hypersensitivity reactions are possible. The formation of neutralising antibodies (inhibitors) to FVIII is a known complication in the management of individuals with haemophilia A. Haemophilic patients with cardiovascular risk factors or diseases may be at the same risk to develop cardiovascular events as non-haemophilic patients when clotting has been normalised by treatment with FVIII.
