Children’s On-line Privacy, Parental Consent, Review And Control
Advate.com, which is brought to you by Baxter Healthcare Corporation, is a place where you can turn for information about Advate. Children under the age of 13 should not submit any personally identifiable data. Baxter encourages parents to monitor their children’s online use, and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never to provide individually identifiable information (“personal information”) on this site or any other site without parental permission. If personally identifiable data is received from a child under the age of 13 it is not retained. We welcome inquires from parents, and ask that they contact us as specified below.
What Information Do We Collect, And Why Do We Collect It?
Given the largely informative nature of our website, we collect a limited amount of personal information. For example:
On our online forms, we collect the e-mail address that you fill in so that we can provide you with updates regarding the website; we also may ask for your name and address so that we can send you valuable information that you select by checking designated boxes.
This site also collects nonpersonal information. For example, like many websites, Advate.com may use “cookies.” A cookie is a small file that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive to help us to improve content (e.g., it helps us figure out which parts of the site are popular and which are less popular, so we may improve these areas in the future) and help us to customize website content and ads for our visitors. Cookies that we generate contain no personal information about you, and we will not combine cookie information with any personal information we have collected from you via this website. You may set your browser to reject cookies and to let you know when a cookie is being placed on your computer. This site also logs IP addresses and Internet browser types, but we do not link such information to your personal information.
Our web pages contain electronic images (called a “single-pixel gif” or “Web beacon”) that allow us to count page views or to access our cookies. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a Web page, including an ad banner, can act as a Web beacon. Web beacons are typically very small, 1 by 1 pixel size, banner like files, but their presence can be easily seen within Internet Explorer by clicking on “View” and then on “Source.” Web beacons are so small in order not to use valuable space on the computer screen that is better used to display helpful content. We also may include Web beacons in HTML-formatted newsletters containing graphics that we send to opt-in subscribers in order to count how many newsletters have been read. In addition, some advertising networks that serve ads on our websites may use Web beacons within their clearly visible banner advertisements. Our Web beacons do not collect, gather, monitor or share any personal information about our website visitors. They are just the technique we use to compile our anonymous, aggregated statistics about website usage.
How Do We Collect Information?
Our practice is to collect personal information directly — that is, by asking the visitor to provide it.
What Do We Do With The Information We Collect?
We may also use information that you provide via this website in aggregate (not individually identifiable) form to provide Baxter Healthcare Corporation affiliates and third parties (which may include advertisers) information about our website visitors. Likewise, we use cookie information, IP addresses, and the like to help us administer the site and improve the content of the site for our visitors.
At any time, you can request that we stop providing you with Advate.com updates or delete your personal information from our records by simply completing the opt-out form.
Protecting Your Information
We will use reasonable efforts to protect the personal information you give us from unauthorized access or disclosure, but we cannot and do not guarantee the security of such information.

Indication for ADVATE [Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), Plasma/Albumin-Free Method]
ADVATE [Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant), Plasma/Albumin-Free Method] is a medicine used to replace clotting factor VIII that is missing in people with hemophilia A (also called “classic” hemophilia). ADVATE is used to prevent and control bleeding in adults and children (0-16 years) with hemophilia A. Your healthcare provider may give you ADVATE when you have surgery. ADVATE can reduce the number of bleeding episodes in adults and children (0-16 years) when used regularly (prophylaxis).
ADVATE is not used to treat von Willebrand Disease.
Detailed Important Risk Information for ADVATE
You should not use ADVATE if you are allergic to mice or hamsters or any ingredients in ADVATE.
You should tell your healthcare provider if you have or have had any medical problems, take any medicines, including prescription and non-prescription medicines and dietary supplements, have any allergies, including allergies to mice or hamsters, are nursing, are pregnant, or have been told that you have inhibitors to factor VIII.
You can have an allergic reaction to ADVATE. Call your healthcare provider right away and stop treatment if you get a rash or hives, itching, tightness of the throat, chest pain or tightness, difficulty breathing, lightheadedness, dizziness, nausea, or fainting.
Your body may form inhibitors to factor VIII. An inhibitor is part of the body’s normal defense system. If you form inhibitors, it may stop ADVATE from working properly. Consult with your healthcare provider to make sure you are carefully monitored with blood tests for the development of inhibitors to factor VIII.
Side effects that have been reported with ADVATE include: cough, sore throat, unusual taste, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, headache, fever, dizziness, hot flashes, chills, sweating, joint swelling/aching, itching, hematoma, swelling of legs, runny nose/congestion, and rash.
Call your healthcare provider right away about any side effects that bother you or if your bleeding does not stop after taking ADVATE.
Please see ADVATE full Prescribing Information.
You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
