Rurioctocog alfa pegol, is a pegylated recombinant human factor VIII with an extended half-life. Rurioctocog alfa pegol is a covalent conjugate of octocog alfa consisting of 2,332 amino acids with polyethylene glycol (PEG) reagent (MW 20 kDa). The therapeutic activity of rurioctocog alfa pegol is derived from octocog alfa, which is produced by recombinant DNA technology from a Chinese hamster ovary cell line. Octocog alfa is then covalently conjugated with the PEG reagent. The PEG moiety is conjugated to octocog alfa to increase the plasma half-life.
