Allergy and Asthma Proceedings, 05/15/2012
Gower RG et al. – Adverse effects include weight gain, virilization, increased hair growth, hypercholesterolemia, depression, and liver adenomas. C1–esterase inhibitor (C1 INH)–nf reduces frequency of attacks and is well tolerated. Each patient with hereditary angioedema (HAE) has unique needs, based on the nature and frequency of past attacks, proximity to a medical center, occupation, and the patient's wishes. These factors should be used to create a patient–centered approach to management of HAE.
