  • Overview

    Hemophilia A is an inherited or spontaneously occurring secondary hemostasis disorder caused by clotting factor VIII deficiency, which affects the formation and stabilization of clots. If left untreated, hemophilia A can cause recurrent and disabling bleeding, leading to severe arthropathy or life- threatening hemorrhage. Prophylaxis is well-documented for its effectiveness in preventing arthropathy and life-threatening bleeds, and improving total bleeding rates. However, limitations of modern factor replacement treatment result in suboptimal outcomes, poor adherence to prophylactic regimens, and reduced QoL. Novel and emerging prophylactic therapies can mitigate some of the hindrances of traditional replacement therapy and enhance the overall effect of treatment in hemophilia A.

    In this educational activity, expert faculty will review recent evidence from key clinical trials of prophylactic therapies that are expanding the armamentarium of therapeutic choices, including a novel high-sustained factor VIII replacement therapy, a bispecific antibody non-factor replacement therapy, and other emerging therapies. Evaluating patients’ goals and preferences will also be discussed, so clinicians can co-create treatment plans using a shared decision approach to improve adherence and reduce bleeding episodes in patients with hemophilia A.

  • Target Audience

    This activity is designed for hematologists, surgeons, pathologists/lab professionals, advanced practitioners (nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants, physical therapists), orthopedic specialists, primary care, pediatricians, emergency medicine, social workers, and other healthcare professionals who are part of the interprofessional team responsible for the therapeutic management of patients with hemophilia A.

  • Learning Objectives

    At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

    1. Apply up-to-date evidence to enable optimal timing for prophylactic treatment initiation in patients with hemophilia A to minimize long-term complications.
    2. Select appropriate prophylactic therapy for patients with hemophilia A based on clinical evidence, bleeding episode frequency, and patient preferences.
    3. Implement shared decision-making strategies when discussing appropriate prophylactic treatment that prevents undue bleeding episodes and increases adherence in patients with hemophilia A.
