Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Treatment: Drugs - rFIXFc
Treatment: Drugs - FIX

Experimental: rFIXFc Prophylaxis - At Baseline and at Day 1, participants receive a single intravenous (IV) injection of prestudy FIX and rFIXFc, respectively, over 10 (±5) minutes at a dose of 50 IU/kg. Immediately after the last PK sampling, the first prophylactic dose of approximately 50 to 60 IU/kg will be administered in clinic as an IV injection.
Dose could be increased or decreased in increments of 10 IU/kg; increases to a maximum of 100 IU/kg and frequency of administration to a maximum of twice weekly, were allowed as indicated.


Treatment: Drugs: rFIXFc
Vials of rFIXFc were combined as needed, based on the actual labeled potency to achieve the participant's calculated dose. Partial vial use was allowed, in order to achieve the calculated dose.

Treatment: Drugs: FIX
Vials of prestudy FIX (provided by the participants) were combined as needed, based on the nominal labeled potency (e.g., 250 IU, 500 IU, and 1000 IU), to achieve the participant's calculated dose.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Occurence of Factor IX (FIX) Inhibitor Development - An inhibitor test result = 0.6 Bethesda units (BU)/mL, confirmed on 2 separate samples drawn 2 to 4 weeks apart, was considered positive. Both tests were to be performed by the central laboratory using the Nijmegen-modified Bethesda Assay. Incidences were summarized for any positive inhibitor for participants with = 50 exposure days (EDs) to rFIXFc. In addition, the incidence for all participants, regardless of their EDs to rFIXFc, was also summarized. An exact 95% CI for the proportion of participants with a confirmed inhibitor was calculated using the Clopper-Pearson exact method for a binomial proportion.

Secondary outcome [1] 0 0
Annualized Bleeding Rate - Annualized bleeding rate = (number of bleeding episodes during the efficacy period / total number of days during the efficacy period)*365.25. The efficacy period begins with the first prophylactic dose of rFIXFc and ends with the last dose (for prophylaxis or a bleeding episode). Surgery/rehabilitation periods and PK evaluation periods are not included in the efficacy period. A bleeding episode started from the first sign of bleeding and ended no more than 72 hours after the last treatment for the bleeding episode, within which any symptoms of bleeding at the same location or injections less than or equal to 72 hours apart were considered the same bleeding episode. Any injection to treat the bleeding episode taken more than 72 hours after the preceding one was considered the first injection to treat a new bleeding episode at the same location. Any bleeding at a different location was considered a separate bleeding episode, regardless of time from last injection.

Annualized Joint Bleeding Rate (Spontaneous) - Annualized bleeding rate for spontaneous joint bleeding episode=(number of bleeding episodes meeting those criteria during the efficacy period/total number of days during the efficacy period)*365.25. Efficacy period begins with the first prophylactic dose of rFIXFc and ends with the last dose (for prophylaxis or a bleeding episode). Surgery/rehabilitation periods and PK evaluation periods are not included in the efficacy period. A bleeding episode started from the first sign of bleeding and ended = 72 hours after the last treatment for the bleeding episode, within which any symptoms of bleeding at the same location or injections = 72 hours apart were considered the same bleeding episode. Any injection to treat the bleeding episode taken > 72 hours after the preceding 1 was considered the first injection to treat a new bleeding episode at the same location. Any bleeding at a different location was considered a separate bleeding episode, regardless of time from last injection.

Annualized rFIXFc Consumption by Type of Injection - Annualized consumption of rFIXFc for prevention of bleeding (prophylactic), treatment of bleeding, and other rFIXFc injections. Consumption is calculated for the efficacy period. The efficacy period began with the first prophylactic dose of rFIXFc and ended with the last dose (regardless of the reason for dosing). Surgery/rehabilitation and PK evaluation periods were not included in the efficacy period. Annualized consumption = (total IU/kg of study treatment received during the efficacy period / total number of days during the efficacy period)*365.25. Participants who did not have a particular injection type are counted as having zero injections for that type.

Number of Days From the Last Prophylaxis Injection to a Spontaneous Bleeding Episode - The number of days from the last prophylaxis injection to the onset of a new spontaneous bleeding episode, analyzed across all evaluable bleeding episodes per participant and per episode, based on the efficacy period. Evaluable bleeding episodes are those for which both a date and time are available for both the onset of the bleeding episode and the previous prophylactic injection. The efficacy period begins with the first prophylactic dose of rFIXFc and ends with the last dose (for prophylaxis or a bleeding episode). Surgery/rehabilitation periods and PK evaluation periods are not included in the efficacy period. For 'Per participant' values, the number of days from the last prophylactic injection to a spontaneous bleeding episode is averaged across all evaluable spontaneous bleeding episodes per participant.

Number of Injections Required for Resolution of a Bleeding Episode - The number of injections required to resolve a bleeding episode per participant and per episode, based on the efficacy period. The efficacy period begins with the first prophylactic dose of rFIXFc and ends with the last dose (for prophylaxis or a bleeding episode). Surgery/rehabilitation periods and PK evaluation periods are not included in the efficacy period. All injections given from the initial sign of a bleeding episode, until the last date/time within the bleeding episode window are counted. The resolution of a bleeding episode is defined as no sign of bleeding following injection for the bleeding episode. For 'Per participant' values, the number of injections required to resolve each bleeding episode is averaged across all bleeding episodes per participant.
