In the past, due to economic and medical resource constraints, the hemophilia comprehensive care in China was suboptimal. The BCH data of both retrospective and prospective studies reveals...
To evaluate the prevalence of subclinical arthropathy in children with severe hemophilia undergoing a prophylaxis regimen and without evidence of target joints, using a validated ultrasoun...
The original Joint Outcome Study (JOS) enrolled 65 boys with hemophilia from 16 sites nationally. The subjects were randomized to one of two arms (prophylaxis or an enhanced episode-based ...
The joint status (knees, ankles) of patients suffering from severe Hemophilia A (too little blood clotting factor VIII in blood) is evaluated in a single magnetic resonance imaging session...
The study evaluates the efficacy and safety of a prophylactic treatment with recombinant activated FVII in reducing the frequency of joint bleeds and the development of joint damage in chi...
Patients with severe hemophilia B regularly administer prophylactic intravenous doses of clotting factor IX (FIX) concentrate to maintain a trough level of at least 0.01 IUmL(-1) in order to prevent j...
: Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) assessment should be part of the regular clinical assessment of persons with hemophilia. This study assessed quality of life of severe hemophilia patients (Typ...

Joint bleeding represents the most commonly reported type of hemorrhage in patients affected by hemophilia. Although the widespread use of prophylaxis has been able to significantly reduce the onset o...
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)
Evaluation procedures that focus on both the outcome or status (OUTCOMES ASSESSMENT) of the patient at the end of an episode of care - presence of symptoms, level of activity, and mortality; and the process (ASSESSMENT, PROCESS) - what is done for the patient diagnostically and therapeutically.
Evaluation and measurement of nutritional variables in order to assess the level of nutrition or the NUTRITIONAL STATUS of the individual. NUTRITION SURVEYS may be used in making the assessment.
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.
