Medical Crossfire®: Personalized Regimens for Managing Hemophilia A: Selecting an Optimal Recombinant FVIII Agent

Release Date: December 23, 2021
Expiration Date: December 23, 2022


Activity Overview

Over the past 20 years, substantial advances in the treatment of hemophilia A have allowed patients to take greater control of their disease. The primary goals of hemophilia A treatment are to prevent bleeding episodes, reduce long-term complications of bleeding, and arrest bleeding if it occurs. Health care providers should understand the underlying etiology and pathophysiology of hemophilia A. In addition, providers should be familiar with how patients perceive their disease and how health-related and economic burdens of hemophilia A impact patients and their families.
