Craig tells his own story

Craig is a writer and performer who refuses to let Hemophilia A speak for him.


When his doctor told him ELOCTATE prophylaxis offers bleed protection* you can count on, he started a new chapter in his treatment journey.

*ELOCTATE has been proven to help patients prevent bleeding episodes using a prophylaxis regimen.

Q&A

You are a self-described passionate man. What are your passions?

I’m passionate about fairness and equality. I grew up with Hemophilia A feeling like I was treated differently, like I was sometimes judged. I’m also passionate about my creativity and restoring old cars.

How did you feel when your doctor suggested ELOCTATE?

I approached my switch to ELOCTATE the same way I approach life—with a sense of possibility.

What do you like about ELOCTATE?

I feel ELOCTATE offers me the bleed and joint bleed protection* I need to help me feel comfortable exploring the passions I enjoy.

And what’s in store for your next chapter?

I like to talk to other people about Hemophilia A, at conferences, one-on-one and I’m constantly moved by the way my stories affect other people, the way they touch other people.

Note: Patient stories reflect the real-life experiences of persons diagnosed with hemophilia A who have been prescribed ELOCTATE. However, individual experiences may vary. Patient stories are not necessarily representative of what another person using ELOCTATE may experience. Talk to your healthcare provider about what's right for you.

Allergic reactions may occur with ELOCTATE. Call your healthcare provider or get emergency treatment right away if you have any of the following symptoms: difficulty breathing, chest tightness, swelling of the face, rash, or hives. Pueden producirse reacciones alérgicas con ELOCTATE. Llame a su proveedor de atención médica o busque tratamiento de emergencia inmediatamente si presenta alguno de los siguientes síntomas: dificultad para respirar, opresión en el pecho, hinchazón de la cara, erupciones o urticaria.

Your body can also make antibodies called "inhibitors" against ELOCTATE, which may stop ELOCTATE from working properly. Su organismo también puede producir anticuerpos denominados “inhibidores” contra ELOCTATE, que pueden impedir que este actúe correctamente.

Additional common side effects of ELOCTATE are headache, rash, joint pain, muscle pain and general discomfort. Los efectos secundarios frecuentes adicionales de ELOCTATE son dolor de cabeza, erupciones, dolor articular, dolor muscular y malestar general.

If you have risk factors for developing abnormal blood clots in your body, such as an indwelling venous catheter, treatment with Factor VIII may increase this risk. Si tiene factores de riesgo para el desarrollo de coágulos sanguíneos anómalos en su cuerpo, como un catéter venoso permanente, es posible que el tratamiento con factor VIII aumente este riesgo.

These are not all the possible side effects of ELOCTATE. Talk to your healthcare provider right away about any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away, or if bleeding is not controlled after using ELOCTATE. Estos no son todos los efectos secundarios posibles de ELOCTATE. Hable inmediatamente con su proveedor de atención médica sobre cualquier efecto secundario que le moleste o persista, o si la hemorragia no se controla después de usar ELOCTATE.
