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

This is a real-world study of the safety of the treatments used for people with hemophilia. The study will follow people with hemophilia A or B from across the country for about 4 years as...
To identify the causative mutations in previously untreated patients with hemophilia A enrolled in the ReFacto® clinical safety and efficacy study CTN 93-R833-0XX/C9741-28, using two esta...
To collect and analyze data on females with hemophilia so as to better define the difference between the study population and the male population with hemophilia.
To determine the risk factors associated with inhibitor formation in hemophilia A and to study the mechanism of tolerance in the murine hemophilia A model.
Prenancy and specialy delivery for hemophilia mother and her children possibly hemophilia is risked. Diagnostical of hemophilia pregnan is the first difficulty but patients with hemorrhag...
Almost all of what is known about neurologic and cognitive development in hemophilia derives from the Hemophilia Growth and Development Study, conducted during an era when treatment regimens and comor...
Hemophilia B is an X-linked recessive bleeding disorder caused by coagulation factor IX (FIX) gene (F9) mutations. Several F9 synonymous mutations have been known to cause hemophilia B; however, the d...
Hemophilia (HP), the deficiency of clotting factors such as VIII (FVIII) and IX, is an inherited blood disorder which is due to the lack of clotting protein. Conventional techniques for detecting hemo...
Lymphoma is the third most common cancer among children in the United States and Europe. Hemophilia is a congenital bleeding disorder characterized by deficiency of coagulation factor VIII or IX. Hemo...
Hemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder that mainly affects males. Globally, there are about 400 000 people with hemophilia and only 25% of them receive adequate treatment. There is insufficien...
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
