Covalent Tolerance Induction to Factor VIII-Prediction of Inhibitors in Hemophilia

2014-08-27 03:50:33 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To correlate the HLA type and genetic defect with hemophilia A.

Description

One of the most serious complications of treatment in patients with hemophilia A or hemophilia B is the development of an inhibitor, which is an antibody that neutralizes the factor VIII or IX coagulant activity. Up to one fourth of patients with severe hemophilia A develop an inhibitor but at present it is not possible to predict which patients will develop such antibody. The ability to predict an inhibitor development at an individual level would greatly improve therapeutic approach to this serious problem

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A deficiency of blood coagulation factor IX inherited as an X-linked disorder. (Also known as Christmas Disease, after the first patient studied in detail, not the holy day.) Historical and clinical features resemble those in classic hemophilia (HEMOPHILIA A), but patients present with fewer symptoms. Severity of bleeding is usually similar in members of a single family. Many patients are asymptomatic until the hemostatic system is stressed by surgery or trauma. Treatment is similar to that for hemophilia A. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1008)

The classic hemophilia resulting from a deficiency of factor VIII. It is an inherited disorder of blood coagulation characterized by a permanent tendency to hemorrhage.

A hereditary deficiency of blood coagulation factor XI (also known as plasma thromboplastin antecedent or PTA or antihemophilic factor C) resulting in a systemic blood-clotting defect called hemophilia C or Rosenthal's syndrome, that may resemble classical hemophilia.

Bleeding into the joints. It may arise from trauma or spontaneously in patients with hemophilia.

Stable blood coagulation factor involved in the intrinsic pathway. The activated form XIa activates factor IX to IXa. Deficiency of factor XI is often called hemophilia C.
