Factor replacement therapy in treatment of haemophilia A is complicated by the production of neutralising antibodies known as inhibitors. The formation of inhibitors is multifactorial being associated with both genetic and environmental factors.

The Austrian Haemophilia Registry collects epidemiological data on patients with haemophilia, on treatment modalities and potential side effects. The Registry covers more than 85% of the assumed total...
Presence of lupus anticoagulants (LA) in haemophilia and their interference in coagulation assays is well-known. Factor VIII (FVIII) inhibitors are generally time and temperature dependent whereas LAs...
: The primary objective was to assess the effect of ABO blood group on von Willebrand factor (VWF) rise induced by four bouts of moderate-intensity physical activity, on pharmacokinetics of a B-domain...
The use of www.guidetopharmacology.org/GRAC/ObjectDisplayForward?objectId=2607 prophylaxis in haemophilia A is considered the standard of care, particularly in children. Despite adjustment of doses fo...
Similar to the general population, overweight and obesity have increasingly become a medical and economic burden also in patients with haemophilia in industrialized nations. In this study in seven Ger...
Study of First TIME Immunotolerance Induction in Severe Hemophilia A Patients With Inhibitor at High Risk of Failure: Comparison With FVIII Concentrates With or Without Von Willebrand Factor - RES.I.S.T. Naive
This is a prospective, controlled, randomized, open label study, aimed at comparing FVIII/VWF concentrates with FVIII concentrates at 200 IU/kg daily in their ability to induce immune tole...
The purpose of this study is to assess the role of a FVIII/VWF complex concentrate (Emoclot) in successfully inducing immune tolerance (I.T.I.) in patients with Haemophilia A with inhibito...
SPK-8016 is in development for the treatment of patients with inhibitors to FVIII. This Phase 1/2, open-label, non-randomized, dose-finding study is part one of a planned two part study of...
The GO-8 study focuses on assessing safety and efficacy of gene therapy for patients with severe haemophilia A
Haemophilic arthropathy is one of the major complications of severe haemophilia. In order to maintain plasma clotting factor activity levels above 1% and avoid spontaneous joint bleeds and...
An adverse effect occurring with a medical treatment that is not attributable to the actions of the treatment.
A synthetic PGE2 analog that has an inhibitory effect on gastric acid secretion, a mucoprotective effect, and a postprandial lowering effect on gastrin. It has been shown to be efficient and safe in the treatment of gastroduodenal ulcers.
One of the ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME INHIBITORS (ACE inhibitors), orally active, that has been used in the treatment of hypertension and congestive heart failure.
One of the CARBONIC ANHYDRASE INHIBITORS that is sometimes effective against absence seizures. It is sometimes useful also as an adjunct in the treatment of tonic-clonic, myoclonic, and atonic seizures, particularly in women whose seizures occur or are exacerbated at specific times in the menstrual cycle. However, its usefulness is transient often because of rapid development of tolerance. Its antiepileptic effect may be due to its inhibitory effect on brain carbonic anhydrase, which leads to an increased transneuronal chloride gradient, increased chloride current, and increased inhibition. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1991, p337)
An octapeptide that is a potent but labile vasoconstrictor. It is produced from angiotensin I after the removal of two amino acids at the C-terminal by ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME. The amino acid in position 5 varies in different species. To block VASOCONSTRICTION and HYPERTENSION effect of angiotensin II, patients are often treated with ACE INHIBITORS or with ANGIOTENSIN II TYPE 1 RECEPTOR BLOCKERS.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
