Patient Information 

Corifact is an injectable medicine used for routine prophylactic treatment and peri-operative management of surgical bleeding in adults and pediatric patients with congenital Factor XIII (FXIII) deficiency. Corifact is a coagulation FXIII concentrate made from human plasma, and has important functions in hemostasis (stopping of bleeding).

You should not use Corifact if you have experienced hypersensitivity (allergy) reactions, including anaphylactic or severe systemic reactions to human plasma-derived products.

  • If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. It has not been established if Corifact can harm your unborn baby.
  • Labor and Delivery: Safety and effectiveness in labor and delivery have not been established.
  • Breast feeding: It has not been established if Corifact passes into your milk.

Tell your healthcare provider and pharmacist about all of the medicines you take, including all prescription and non-prescription medicines such as over-the-counter medicines, supplements, or herbal remedies.

How Is Corifact Given? 

Corifact is administered into your vein (intravenous injection). Before infusing, Corifact is dissolved using sterile water provided in the package. Your healthcare provider will prescribe the dose that you receive.

Other Possible Side Effects May Include: 

  • chills/rise in temperature
  • arthralgia (joint pain)

These are not all the possible side effects of Corifact.

Tell your healthcare provider about any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away. You can also report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
