In this study a modified virus called adeno-associated virus (AAV) will be used to transfer a normal gene for human clotting factor IX into patients with severe hemophilia B (AAV human Factor IX vector). Gene therapy is a very new medical technique being used in a number of clinical studies for diseases such as cancer and cystic fibrosis. At this time, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved no gene transfer products for commercial use. To date, 8 subjects have received AAV vector in the muscle for a hemophilia B trial by intramuscular injection, and, to date, 6 subjects have been treated with AAV vector in the current hemophilia B liver trial. Eleven cystic fibrosis subjects have received AAV vector into their nasal sinuses or lungs to date. In this study, AAV human Factor IX vector will be injected into the liver using a catheter inserted into a large blood vessel (called the proper hepatic artery or the right hepatic artery).

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of giving a normal factor IX gene to treat individuals who have an abnormal or no factor IX gene. Recruitment will be limited to adults...
This study is a Phase I/II trial using a novel bioengineered lenti viral vector to deliver a normal gene for human clotting factor VIII or factor IX into patients with hemophilia A or hemo...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and determine the dose of BAX 888
This study will determine the efficacy of human-cl rhFVIII in previously treated patients with severe hemophilia A during prophylactic treatment, treatment of bleeding episodes and in surg...
The ability of a new recombinant porcine coagulation factor VIII, B-domain deleted (called "OBI-1"), to control the non-life- or limb-threatening bleeding episodes patients with hemophilia...
Concurrent with the development of recombinant factor replacement products, the characterization of the F9 and F8 genes over 3 decades ago allowed for the development of recombinant factor products an...
Hemophilia is a congenital bleeding disorder that affects nearly half a million individuals worldwide. Joint bleeding and other co-morbidities are a significant source of debilitation for this populat...
Prophylactic injections of factor VIII reduce the incidence of bleeds and slow the development of joint damage in people with hemophilia. The aim of this study was to identify optimal person-specific ...
The main complication of patients with severe hemophilia is recurrent bleeding events that usually affected musculoskeletal contractures. And replacement therapy methods were continuously improved to ...
A phase 1/2 clinical trial of AAV-mediated gene therapy in patients with hemophilia B using an enhanced specific activity factor IX (FIX) transgene reports sustained levels of FIX levels, leading to t...
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.
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.
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).
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.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
Gene therapy is the use of DNA as a pharmaceutical agent to treat disease. It derives its name from the idea that DNA can be used to supplement or alter genes within an individual's cells as a therapy to treat disease. The most common form of gene th...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
