The relevance of the study will be in establishing whether Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) measures obtained repeatedly during hemophilia care are sensitive to significant changes in health or personal circumstances related to the transition from youth to adulthood. This may support the future use of HRQoL measures as part of routine care in order to identify important changes that are not detectible by other clinical means.

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 correlate the HLA type and genetic defect with hemophilia A.
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.
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 ...
Hemophilia B (HB) is an X-linked bleeding disorder caused by deficiency of factor IX (FIX). Patients with the severe form (FIX
Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is impaired in patients with hemophilia, however the impact in mild/moderate hemophilia B and affected women is not well characterized.
To assess the reliability and validity of 6 patient-reported outcomes (PRO) instruments for evaluating health-related quality of life in adults with mild-severe hemophilia B and caregivers of children...
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...
