Acquired haemophilia (AH) is a rare disorder caused by autoantibodies against factor VIII.
Renal vein thrombosis (RVT) in neonates is a rare condition of low mortality but significant morbidity due to renal impairment.We report the case of a male term newborn with left RVT and elevated seru...
Heterogeneous bleeding phenotypes are observed in haemophilia A patients with the same mutation in the F8 gene. Specific mutations in the A2 domain of factor VIII are associated with mild haemophilia ...
We present an unusual case of a 32-year-old man with haemophilia A, who sustained massive, haemodynamically significant intra-abdominal bleeding from a perforated gallbladder wall and from the greater...
Acquired haemophilia is a rare disorder. The clinical picture ranges from mild ecchymosis and anaemia to life threatening bleeding in up to 20% of patients. The disease is produced by an antibody agai...
This trial is conducted in Asia, Europe, Japan and the United States of America (USA). The aim of this clinical trial is to investigate the safety and efficacy of N8 in male previously tr...
OPTIMS is a non interventional validation study of the calculator developed by Bayer for clinician's use in the prophylactic treatment by factor VIII of patients with severe or moderate Ha...
This trial is conducted in Europe and Asia. The aim of this clinical trial is to compare two recombinant factor VIII drugs, N8 with Advate®, in haemophilia A subjects, investigating the a...
Haemophilia is a rare and serious congenital defect of blood coagulation due to a genetic mutation on a sexual chromosome. It affects quasi-essentially the men and it is responsible for bl...
This study is conducted in the United States of America (USA). The aim of this study is to investigate the at-home-administration of bypassing agents for treatment of bleeding episodes in ...
Blood-coagulation factor VIII. Antihemophilic factor that is part of the factor VIII/von Willebrand factor complex. Factor VIII is produced in the liver and acts in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. It serves as a cofactor in factor X activation and this action is markedly enhanced by small amounts of thrombin.
Activated form of factor VIII. The B-domain of factor VIII is proteolytically cleaved by thrombin to form factor VIIIa. Factor VIIIa exists as a non-covalent dimer in a metal-linked (probably calcium) complex and functions as a cofactor in the enzymatic activation of factor X by factor IXa. Factor VIIIa is similar in structure and generation to factor Va.
A human infant born before 37 weeks of GESTATION.
Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).
Storage-stable blood coagulation factor acting in the intrinsic pathway. Its activated form, IXa, forms a complex with factor VIII and calcium on platelet factor 3 to activate factor X to Xa. Deficiency of factor IX results in HEMOPHILIA B (Christmas Disease).
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
