Interactive Updates in the Prophylaxis Management of Hemophilia

Hemophilia is a sex-linked genetic disorder characterized by the deficiency or absence of one of the clotting proteins in plasma. Severe deficiency results in spontaneous bleeding into the joints and recurrent bleeding which, in turn, leads to hemophilic arthropathy, disability, and reduced quality of life. Currently, there is no known cure for hemophilia, so treatment goals include preventing bleeding, recognizing bleeding episodes, and providing prompt treatment and intervention to prevent complications.
