Berinert for Angioedema

People who have a rare genetic disorder called hereditary angioedema (HAE) may receive Berinert® (C1 esterase inhibitor). This prescription drug is specifically approved to treat sudden attacks of swelling caused by HAE that involve the face, abdomen (stomach), or larynx (voice box or throat). It is given at the first sign of an attack to help reduce symptoms and prevent the attack from progressing.
 
Berinert comes as an injection that is administered by a healthcare provider, or in some cases, can be self-administered. It is approved for use in adults and children as young as 13 years old.
