NOWIQ And Octapharma
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

got a packet from the non-profit chapter about this company and their product. was just wanting to see the reviews from people that i have connected to or a support group that i am in.

its derived from human based cells, from what i am gathering. just not sure on it as last i remember when they had tried something along that line the AIDS and Hep C outbreak occurred.

All Factor products available in the United States are safe from Hep C and HIV. Nuwiq is manufactured from human cells, but is not from human blood plasma. Even plasma derived factor in US is heat or detergent treated to kill any viruses.
