Clinical Details

Official title: Assessment and Tracking of Long-Term Alefacept (LFA-3/IgG1 Fusion Protein) Pregnancy Exposure Registry

Study design: Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

Primary outcome: Evaluate pattern or increase in major birth defects in children of women w/ psoriasis who were exposed to AMEVIVE® at any time within the 8 wks prior to conception, or at any time during pregnancy, where outcome of the pregnancy is unknown prospectively

Secondary outcome:

To evaluate the number of live born infants versus fetal loss in pregnant women exposed to AMEVIVE®

To evaluate gestational age, body weight, gender, head circumference, and body length in live born infants exposed to AMEVIVE®

To evaluate appearance, pulse, grimace, activity, and respiration (APGAR) scores at 1 and 5 minutes of age in live born infants exposed to AMEVIVE®

To evaluate hospitalizations for infection in live born infants exposed to AMEVIVE®

To evaluate clinically significant infections with unusual organisms, not requiring hospitalization in live born infants exposed to AMEVIVE®

To evaluate malignancies in live born infants exposed to AMEVIVE®

Detailed description: Prospective reports will be collected from pregnant subjects, health care provider (HCP), or Astellas Product Safety Management staff. Data from the pregnant subjects will be collected at 4 to 5 months of pregnancy by telephone interviews with the Registry. The Registry will also contact the subject at 2 months and 12 months after the estimated delivery date (EDD) for post-natal & pediatric follow-up. The Registry will confirm the information collected from the subject with the HCP by telephone interviews with the Registry, forms mailed/faxed to the Registry, electronic forms/queries sent to the Registry, or a combination of these methods. If a live birth is reported, the infant's HCP will be contacted for the Pediatric Follow-Up at 2 months and 12 months of age. If a birth defect is reported, targeted follow-up will be conducted.
