Hypofibrinogenemia Understanding

Hypofibrinogenemia: Overview

Hypofibrinogenemia is a rare disorder characterized by low fibrinogen levels (< 1.5 g/L), normal plasma fibrinogen levels ranging from 1.5 g/L to 4.5 g/L. It is broadly classified into two types, i.e., Congenital Hypofibrinogenemia and Acquired Hypofibrinogenemia.

Fibrinogen is a critical protein for clot formation, providing a matrix and mesh network essential for clot strength. Maintaining fibrinogen levels is an essential therapeutic target in bleeding patients, particularly in perioperative settings. Low fibrinogen levels are associated with reduced clot strength and are strongly associated with severe bleeding.

Several genetic variants have been identified in individuals with fibrinogen disorders. The complexity of the fibrinogen molecules, formed by three non-identical chains and with a trinodal organization, renders the identification of molecular causes and clinical and biochemical phenotypes very challenging. However, the acknowledgment of the type of molecular defect is crucial for a safer therapy as it can help improve the clinical management of patients.


Congenital fibrinogen disorders are caused by genetic variants occurring within all three fibrinogen genes. However, each gene (FGA, FGB, FGG) differently shows specific variants, wherein “nonsense” variants are mostly found within FGA, while FGG variants are prevalently responsible for missense changes. In congenital hypofibrinogenemia, genes responsible for producing fibrinogen (a critical blood clotting factor) are unable to make a functional fibrinogen glycoprotein because of an inherited mutation. In contrast, acquired hypofibrinogenemia can result from either severe hepatic disease or disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), cardiac surgery, etc.

Signs and Symptoms

Individuals with congenital hypfibringenemia often lack any symptoms are detected by routine lab testing of fibrinogen or when tested for it because close relatives have symptomatic hypofibrinogenmeia. Indeed, studies indicate that, among family members with the identical congenital hypofibrinogenemia mutation, some never exhibit symptoms and those that are symptomatic develop symptoms only as adults.


The diagnosis of hypofibrinogenemia is indicated in individuals who have low levels (< 1.5 gram/liter) of plasma fibrinogen as determined by both immunological (e.g. immunoelectrophoresis and (i.e. able to be clotted) methods. The ratio of immunological to functional fibrinogen masses should be ~1.0 as assayed with partial thromboplastin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, thrombin time, and reptilase time tests. These tests are used to distinguish hypofibrinogenemia from hypodysfibrinogenemia, a typically more severe disorder in which plasma fibrinogen levels are low and this fibrinogen includes at least in part dysfunctional fibrinogen.


Recommended treatment of asymptomatic congenital hypofibrinogenemia depends in part on the expectations of developing bleeding and/or thrombotic complications as indicated by the personal history of the afflicted individual and family members.

Hypofibrinogenemia Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Hypofibrinogenemia report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Hypofibrinogenemia Emerging Drugs

Fibrinogen concentrate: Biotest AG

This is a novel fibrinogen concentrate purified from human plasma developed by Biotest. The company investigated the product clinically in a multinational phase I/III trial in patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency and for the acquired fibrinogen deficiency. Biotest is conducting a phase III study in multiple European countries in patients with high blood loss during spine surgery. The results of both studies will serve as a basis for the marketing authorization of fibrinogen concentrate BT524 for the treatment of patients with congenital and acquired fibrinogen deficiency.
