However, the trial stopped early on account of the excessive bleed rate in the low dose ITI arm. Methods: United Kingdom Haemophilia Centre Doctors’ Organization (UKHCDO) Paediatric and Inhibitor working parties considered available ITI data alongside the bi-phenotypic antibody emicizumab (Hemlibra®) efficacy and safety data to develop a consensus guideline for the future UK ITI guideline. Results: This revision of UKHCDO ITI guidance incorporates the recommendation to use emicizumab as a prophylaxis haemostatic agent to reduce bleeding rates and to facilitate low dose and reduced frequency of FVIII CFC for ITI in the majority of children. Conclusion: This consensus protocol will facilitate future evaluation of ITI outcomes in the evolving landscape of haemophilia therapeutics and ITI strategies.
