This integrated efficacy dataset included 155 HAE patients treated for 424 angioedema attacks with 100 U/kg, 50 U/kg and 2100 U of RHUCIN, including patients treated for repeated attacks. Median time to the primary endpoint of onset of symptom relief for attacks treated with 100 U/kg, 50 U/kg and 2100 U of RHUCIN were 66, 60 and 61 minutes, respectively, compared with 495 minutes in the placebo-treated group.
