Baxter (BAX +0.3%) completes enrollment in a Phase 3 trial for the investigational extended half-life rFVIII hemophilia A treatment BAX 855.

The study will evaluate BAX 855's efficacy in terms of reducing ABR "in both prophylaxis and on-demand treatment schedules."

BAX says that while it is "focused first and foremost on strategies to address optimal efficacy and minimize patients bleeding episodes," the company is also  "delivering on the convenience of less frequent dosing for this population with severe disease."

The company expects to file for approval "late in 2014." (PR)
