We couldn’t be more thrilled than to play a role in the recovery of this industry.”

Examples include:

- YOTEL Bostonannounced it has implemented the UVD Robots technology to clean select cabins when vacant with all high-touch public spaces also being disinfected upon closing.

- The Clarion Hotel & Congress Copenhagen Airport is applying UVD Robots to disinfect conference rooms and public areas.

Octapharma announces FDA approval of updated NUWIQ ® Prescribing Information to include immunogenicity data in previously untreated patients19.10.2020 17:29:00 CESTPress release

Octapharma is pleased to announce that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved an updated Prescribing Information (PI) for NUWIQ®, Octapharma’s human cell line-derived recombinant factor VIII (FVIII). NUWIQ ® is approved for the prevention and treatment of bleeding in people with haemophilia A. The updated PI includes immunogenicity data from the NuProtect study in previously untreated patients (PUPs). FVIII inhibitor development is the most serious treatment complication in previously untreated patients (PUPs) with severe haemophilia A. The development of inhibitors against exogenous FVIII can reduce the effectiveness of treatment and negatively impact a patient's long-term joint health and quality of life. Minimising the risk of inhibitor development is therefore a key consideration in treatment decisions for PUPs. The updated NUWIQ® PI includes data from the NuProtect study, which was the largest prospective study of a single FVIII product in true PUPs. Patients rec
