Review GLASSIA’s demonstrated efficacy and safety profile.
In a clinical trial,§¶ patients taking GLASSIA were found to have increased levels of Alpha1‑PI in their blood and lungs.1
100% of the 33 GLASSIA-treated subjects had mean trough antigenic Alpha1‑PI levels greater than 11 µM during Weeks 7–12 of the study.1
66.7% of GLASSIA-treated subjects (22/33) had mean steady-state functional PI levels above the 11 µM threshold, while 33.3% of subjects (11/33) did not.1
§Study Design: The study was a randomized, double-blind trial with partial crossover involving 50 Alpha1‑PI deficient patients receiving GLASSIA (n=33) or the comparator (n=17) at a dose of 60 mg/kg IV per week for 12 weeks. From Weeks 13 to 24, all patients received open-label GLASSIA at 60 mg/kg IV per week. The objectives of the study were to: demonstrate the pharmacokinetics of antigenic and/or functional Alpha1‑PI in GLASSIA were not inferior to the control; and determine whether GLASSIA maintained antigenic and/or functional Alpha1‑PI of at least 11 µM (57 mg/dL).1
¶The effect of augmentation therapy on pulmonary exacerbations and on the progression of emphysema in Alpha1 deficiency has not been conclusively demonstrated in randomized, controlled trials.
The serious adverse reaction observed during clinical trials# with GLASSIA was exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).1
The most common adverse reactions (>0.5% of infusions) in clinical trials were headache and upper respiratory infection.1
#Safety of GLASSIA was evaluated in the clinical study and an open-label, non-parallel, dose-escalation trial involving 65 subjects with pre-augmentation therapy serum Alpha1‑PI levels less than 11 μM.
At OnePath, we know living with Alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency looks different for everyone. Whether they’ve just been diagnosed or have been on treatment for a long time, we get to know your patient.

GLASSIA is an Alpha1-Proteinase Inhibitor (Human) (Alpha1‑PI) indicated for chronic augmentation and maintenance therapy in adults with clinically evident emphysema due to severe hereditary deficiency of Alpha1‑PI (alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency). GLASSIA increases antigenic and functional (anti-neutrophil elastase capacity, ANEC) serum levels and antigenic lung epithelial lining fluid levels of Alpha1‑PI.
The effect of augmentation therapy with GLASSIA or any Alpha1‑PI product on pulmonary exacerbations and on the progression of emphysema in Alpha1‑PI deficiency has not been conclusively demonstrated in randomized, controlled clinical trials. Clinical data demonstrating the long-term effects of chronic augmentation and maintenance therapy of individuals with GLASSIA are not available. GLASSIA is not indicated as therapy for lung disease in patients in whom severe Alpha1-PI deficiency has not been established.
