International Survey Finds Self-Administered Treatment on the Rise Among Hereditary Angioedema Patients
Date:11/8/2013

Craig, D.O., Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics at Penn State University in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and one of the study's investigators. "Fortunately, three HAE therapies are now indicated for self-administration, which our survey confirmed has the potential to minimize the burden of disease for these patients because when faced with an attack, they can intervene earlier."

According to results of the 16-question, online survey, physicians agreed that all patients should be considered for self treatment if certain characteristics are met, including motivation, mental ability and clinical need. While all HAE centers included in the survey offer self-administration, centers in Europe and Canada provide self-administration training. Centers in the United States offer trai
