Unfortunately, there are currently no registered medications for HAE in Hong Kong. Patients needing treatment for acute attacks need individual registration of drugs (currently C1 inhibitor replacement) on a “named patient basis”. That is why it is important that patients be diagnosed and registered so that medication is available for use when needed. Known anti-allergy treatments are not effective in treating HAE attacks.
基於這個原因, 診斷自己是否HAE患者並儘快註冊是很重要的, 以便當病發時能對証下藥, 因抗過敏感藥對HAE病發侵襲的治療是無效的。
