Why Switch to wilate for Your VWD Treatment?

At Octapharma, we understand the challenges patients face every day living with von Willebrand Disease (VWD). We know that every patient is different and recognize the importance of finding a treatment that is right for you — one that fits your specific needs and lifestyle.  This is why we created wilate® the only von Willebrand Factor (VWF)/Factor VIII (FVIII) complex developed specifically for the treatment of VWD.1-3

Here’s what makes wilate different from other treatments.

The Power of Balance

wilate is a balanced formulation with a 1:1 ratio of VWF:FVIII—this is similar to the ratio
of VWF and FVIII found naturally in the body 1-3

    for bleeds that require multiple doses (also called maintenance dose).
  • Be sure to talk with your doctor to find the VWD treatment and dosing options
    that are right for you.
